Ridiculous: "Global Warming Superheroes"

Pajamas Media contributor Bryan Preston, while writing about global warming propaganda in the UK, stumbled over an absurd site called Global Warming Superheroes. Disturbingly, they even seem to be putting down real comics superheroes: on their about page, they say:
Spider-Man made a big deal of protecting New York from the GreenGoblin. But let’s be honest: scrapping a lycra-clad gimp on a hover-board is about as gutsy as wiping a pube from the bath.
Umm, Norman Osborn wasn't the only concern Spidey ever had. And are they saying they don't like stories about good fighting evil? I'm not sure, but I do know that using words like "pube" is really vulgar. Whoever came up with that site in the UK needs to see a psychologist.

Labels: ,

A 'gimp' that's a homicidal maniac and carried a bag full of bombs. Yeah, fighting that guy was nothing. Might as well have left him alone and beat up a BP station owner instead.

Colorful imagery on that chap's part. Can people in the comics biz even speak intelligently with a modicum of class anymore?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
