    Just the logo? Noone else thinks this resembles Prodigy, also from marvel comics?

    I tired not to glance at the horrid costume and costume design long enough to notice

    Most of Marvel is from NYC and lives there. Not gonna embarrass the home town more than absolutely necessary. In the hands of a lesser creative team, it could have been a complete disaster as opposed to looking like a DC 52 first wave cancellation.
    If you'd like to see my store, a faux movie trailer was shot there.

    I heard once that with any news article, if the headline is a question, then the answer is always "no". Because if it was yes, they wouldn't have to ask.

    Also Brooklyknight will join the Avengers in 3 months, including his alter ego Deron Williams.

    And, given that Marvel put pretty big names like Aaron and Deodato on it, it appears that they are clueless enough to be resorting to tactics like this as a primary way of 'growing the industry' - which is the most laughable (or lamentable) thing of all
    I find your lack of understanding of how marketing works... disturbing...

    You're right. Advertising is never aimed at specific demographics. That's why I'm always seeing Viagra commercials when I watch cartoons, and Lego commercials during reruns of The Golden Girls

    You mean like they do in every single other comic book they publish every month?

    A demographic like young adult males? For comics and sports?

    Yeah, that'd be madness.

    Keep digging...

    Yeah you have no idea what you're even arguing against. But then again, most trolls don't
