I recently got a call from my brother, John, complaining about a disturbing trend he just started to notice. Marvel recently released a comic turning Starlord, the fan-favorite character from “Guardians of the Galaxy,” into a polyamorous bisexual.
John isn’t an avid comic reader, but like many Americans, he enjoys the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Why does Disney allow their people to mock fans?” he asked. He firmly pointed out: “If Disney is out of cash because of COVID-19, it seems pretty dumb to insult your audience.”
Pretty dumb indeed. Like many Americans, while stuck inside, John is discovering the woke corruption in nerd media. Fan scorn has long been the norm there. With the onset and ramifications of COVID-19, however, cracks are starting to show. As we say goodbye to 2020, it’s worth exploring why certain nerd stewards got woke and went broke, while others continue to limp on by.
