    Default Alt-Hero

    I haven't seen much reporting on this anywhere. Looks like there's a pretty highly backed crowdfund for a book that's out there as a response to Marvel's overpoliticizations lately. Anyone checked it out?

    Politics aside, this looks terrible.

    Politics considered, this looks terrible.

    And some of those comments... it baffles me that people like that can be fans of superheroes.

    "Intended to challenge and replace Marvel and DC" ... lol

    I'm really concerned that Dixon is throwing in with someone who at least pretends to be a white nationalist. I've really appreciated Dixon's work for conservative creators and fans, but this looks like it will set his voice back a lot. He says that he doesn't think this project will be white nationalist, but I have no faith in Vox Day.

    Is this serious?

    It looks like a parody?

    I mean, the white hero beating up an evil "foreigner", that's "Birth of a Nation" levels of garbage.
    Race, sexuality and genders are not weapons. They should not be used to guilt people and they should not be used to judge people. Life is much easier when we simply accept people that are different than us and realize there is strength in diversity.

    Didn't know this garbage had made its way to CBR.

    For those that are unaware of how horrible the creator, Vox Day, is, here are just a few things the guy has said.

    On education for women

    Because educating women is strongly correlated with reducing their disposition and ability to reproduce themselves. Educating them tends to make them evolutionary dead ends. "Germany now has the highest number of childless women in the world. This trend has been going on since at least the 90s. What we also know is that the higher the level of education, the more likely a woman is to remain childless." -Professor Norbert Schneider, Mainz University. 40% of German women with college degrees are childless. Does PZ seriously wish to claim that not reproducing is intrinsically beneficial to women? Does he really find it hard to understand how not reproducing is evolutionary disadvantageous?
    On throwing acid at women

    Because female independence is strongly correlated with a whole host of social ills. Using the utilitarian metric favored by most atheists, a few acid-burned faces is a small price to pay for lasting marriages, stable families, legitimate children, low levels of debt, strong currencies, affordable housing, homogenous populations, low levels of crime, and demographic stability. If PZ has turned against utilitarianism or the concept of the collective welfare trumping the interests of the individual, I should be fascinated to hear it.
    On why Honor Killings are a good thing

    Because female promiscuity and divorce are strongly correlated with a whole host of social ills, from low birth and marriage rates to high levels of illegitimacy.
    On female genital mutilation

    By reducing female promiscuity, which is strongly correlated with a whole host of social ills, from low birth and marriage rates to high levels of illegitimacy. But it may not even do so, in which case there wouldn't appear to be any case for it, since female genital mutilation tends to make health matters worse, unlike male genital mutilation, which appears to improve health matters somewhat.
    That's just some of the horrendous stuff he's said in one blog post.

    I'm not surprised, the alt-right is basically anti- "anything that's not a straight white male".

    The funny thing is how much the Alt-Right and "Radical Islam" have in common.

    They are both anti-female
    They are both anti-LGBT
    They don't have tolerance for other people with different skin color
    They are anti-reproductive rights
    They are somewhat coded by religious beliefs
    Race, sexuality and genders are not weapons. They should not be used to guilt people and they should not be used to judge people. Life is much easier when we simply accept people that are different than us and realize there is strength in diversity.

    Well, the first thing the "hero" does is punch a woman in the face, knocking her out, drags her to his place and ties her up just to invite her to join him. (which of course she does while admiring her ass in a triple mirror)

    If this is the "alt-hero," they're more pathetic than I thought...
