I don't know man. I just think you're being a bit paranoid. Like, I don't think these authors are all consciously ideologically motivated to girlify men or suborniate them to castrating women or anything. Okay... maybe Jason Aaron lol
Like a starving homeless man is 'ready' to jump the soup queue at the shelter.
LGDB: I feel like you don't have a lot of experience with homeless people. But I'll tell you what, if I met one with a Thor hammer I would definitely give him money.
...if he could muster up the strength to lift it...were the hammer not a rebellious female intelligence - suppressed for decades by the patriarchy.
LGDB: I feel like you almost know too much about this stuff lol
It applies to most of the male characters in Marvel. Heroic proportions are out of fashion at the House of Progressive Ideas.
LGDB: Wait so you think Marvel artists are ALL (or mostly) trying to denigrate men? (What about the guys that have been working there for a while?
You cherry picked that cover piece - the one place they still might try to con those of lapsed interest Thor is still a positive role model
The artist probably hadn't got the editorial mandate at that point to make him look like a depressed septuagenarian.
Use some of the interior art from the past year. Is there a healthy, muscular Thor anywhere to be found?
LGDB: Thor IS a positive role model! Do you REALLY think it's an editorial mandate. And yeah absolutely lots of muscular Thor.
And do you really think there's an editorial mandate?
And I added some interiors here. I dunno man. He looks pretty yoked to me.
He should look like a 'roided superhuman male model (like the headline banner in this forum). He's an aspirational ideal, not every other average looking guy you meet who is having a bad day.
LGDB: yeah, but roided up male models aren't even that strong relative to like power lifters and stuff. And I think you're exaggerating about him looking small. Plus their are plenty of Thor artists in the past that didn't make Thor much bigger if at all bigger. I don't think Walt's Thor is bigger than Klein's for instance.
That art is probably what Klein thought he would look like in the run before he was told to draw a scraggly, depressed vagrant.
LGDB: I don't know man. Are you sure you're not being paranoid?
