I didn't understand why some Spidey fans raged about the Peter Parker
and Doc Ock thing, (yeah I'm aware it was changing history but they had to do
big stuff for the 50th anniversary and avoid repeating stories)
it was weird I think, but interesting. Not annoying. A lot of the stories are non-canon to the original
old ones from the 60s and so on anyway.
But I can understand if people would get annoyed about this.
Thor....turning into a woman? PPPPP...PERMANENTLY (for now)?
That's like the Doctor regenerating into a woman. (Not a good idea. A separate non-canon series would be fine though.)
They should have just made her She-Thor or Thorita or whatever because
changing the gender of a much loved and classic character is definitely a bad move.
I'm probably biased though. When I like a male character, I want it to stay male.
When I like a female character, I want it to stay female.
Gender is an important component in a character, you can't just switch them
like bed sheets.
Alternative spin-offs and stuff are fine because they don't erase what's been done
so to speak. (Obviously they're not literally erased but since it would be
in canon, it's affecting the stream of the character's story. You lose interest if your
liked character in its mainstream form becomes something you don't like or don't recognise
or relate to.)
Like in Photoshop/Gimp, you start a new alternate version project,
you do NOT put a new layer (called reverse gender) and jeapordise
the project that others have praised over and over again.
It's risky. And I can't help but think it's a little insulting/disrespectful too.
(Or maybe I'm thinking
of something else.
Marvel have probably done worse things so...whatever. Not in my personal top 5 anyway.
What if Gwen Stacy was suddenly a guy?
I wouldn't mind in an alternate universe but when it's put into
the mainstream arc, it can change the way you feel about it.
"HAWT GWEN STACY IS NOW A GUY? BRB throwing my comics away..."
(Lol just kidding.
You get the point, though the above joke is definitely off at a tangent.
I've never liked Thor that much, he's cool and all but not my kinda cool.
I'm more of a Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Deadpool, etc. kinda guy.
I don't care AS MUCH for stuff like Fantastic Four, Thor, etc.
Captain America and some others are somewhere in between.
What do you think, Supercody?
Anyone else have an opinion?
