I gave up DC with the new 52m, nothing appealed to me

Now with Marvel I've lost complete interest. There is nothing there for me, Steves not Cap, Thor is Jane Foster. No sign of Wasp. the Inhumans are being pushed like no tomorrow. Banner is no longer the Hulk. Dr Strange is now a womanising louse. I buy their product because of my history with these characters, my love of them. I don't buy it to see Sam Wilson as Cap, or Amadeus Cho as Hulk, or Sam Alexander as Nova.

I don't mind change, but this just doesn't seem organic. I have no problem with diversity, but want it grown organically. This just seems to me. It's being pushed down my throat, "Hey we're being burned on not being diverse, OK, let's make iceman Gay, let's make Cap Black, let's make the Hulk Asian, let's dump Johnny Blaze, let's stop calling Carol Ms Marvel and we'll tell everyone the reason is because it's old fashioned and then give it to a young Girl'"

Its something when you're more interested in the behind scenes gossip at Marvel than I am with their product.

i stopped buying new comics a few years back due mostly to high prices and grindingly slow storylines. I still look at the marvel and dc websites every Monday, but as time goes on I see less and less that makes me want to run out and buy a comic book. I have a feeling they're just not too interested in appealing to the late 50s male demographic ;\)

I do still buy the occasional bargain bin silver age comic, and I have tons of beloved old comics at home to read whenever I get the urge. and I have many happy memories of comic books as a big part of my childhood ;\)
