    I understand this concern, but more often than not that is an editorial mandate

    I don't mind it because more people will see the movie, then read a comic book title

    When it comes to the sections of comic-book fandom that I have the least amount of regard for, I often compare and contrast it to my own experiences with the band Radiohead.

    At the turn of the millennium, after two stellar previous albums, Radiohead took a left turn in their career that I simply couldn't follow them down. It was a more electronic direction, which wasn't the problem in and of itself, it was more the way that it was implemented. I tried to get into them but I ultimately found the 'Kid A' and 'Amnesiac' albums boring and directionless. That was where Radiohead and I parted ways and I've barely heard a note of their music since. Thing is, it wasn't an acrimonious parting of ways. The band themselves have never heard of me and, even if they had somehow, wouldn't have given a toss. As for me, there are too many classic bands and albums out there to be bitter about something specific like that.

    If I'd had the mentality of some 'fans' on here then I'd have spent the next decade online, endlessly harping on about the unfairness of it all. Looking for scapegoats in the band for the change in musical direction, demanding the return of the 'real' Radiohead and picking holes in albums that I've never even listened to. That kind of behaviour.

    Obviously there's a big difference between comic-books and a rock band but the sense of entitlement that some people possess is the same.

    I think she got more votes in the "greatest fictional character ever" thread than one would think. Unless my recollection is off.

    I am not sure these people even exist.

    How about comicbook writers who do work-for-hire and do what they were hired to do?

    If you grew up on Claremont or Lobdell X-Men (or both) it makes sense. Storm was a very strong and developed character, the heart of the team really. It was only when Morrison decided to ignore her during his run to focus on Scott/Jean/Emma/Logan (and really only Logan because they had to), then every half-assed writer the next decade after that doing their best Morrison imitation, that she faded into the background.

    Probably not my favorite X-man, but a top 10 for sure.

    I won't go that far, but I will say you're more likely to run into this fan's anti-matter-universe twin: the fan that can't understand why the Cinema/TV versions aren't exactly like their comic book versions. The first year or more of the MAoS thread liberally featured those guys on a veritable jihad.

    Tbf, this is more about frustration that nothing permanent is ever done about the Joker and the fact that writers keep bringing it up anyway.

    Too many superlatives, making an extended, meaningful discourse extremely difficult much of the time.

    Watchmen fans tend to want to see vindication of their favorite character(s) and their perspectives. This leads to quite divergent points-of-view among the fan base. The movie was golden opportunity to tell the story differently, but alas it was far too faithful to the graphic novel.

    And at the same time completely and utterly missed the point of the story.

    It was a strange duck.
