Kurt Busiek, apologist for Marvel's destroyers
Next person who wants to tell me what Jack Kirby thinks, unless they’re Jack’s family or friends, can get in line at the sign marked EXIT.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) May 28, 2016
I think Busiek should exit the field entirely if he never liked the creations he worked on 2-3 decades ago. If he's got no respect for the ideals the characters were created to stand for, then he had no business taking the assignments years before with Avengers members.
Later, when somebody else points to one of Joe Simon's children taking issue with the Cap-as-Hydra-terrorist angle, all he could say was:
@PirateMarvel Joe Simon's "kid" has ground to speak from, as do others who knew Joe and Jack who disagree. Those who didn't, not so much.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) June 5, 2016
So nobody else has the right to say whether they think this was in poor taste? Pretty low, and only proves Busiek's no longer fit to script Marvel/DC. How is it that nobody else's opinion matters? If no one's allowed to protest a denigration of any superheroes/co-stars, major or minor, then even the relatives of the original artists aren't either.
@KurtBusiek all bs aside, why is it other jews feelings dont matter here? you cant see how it feels racist?— GrantGardner (@PirateMarvel) June 5, 2016
It's regrettable that Busiek's so shallow, he'll even contradict any respect he claims to have for Jewish creators. Like a number of other irrational liberals today, he turns out to be somebody who was never in it for the glory; only the money. He may have once been suited for scripting Marvel/DC heroes. But no longer. I hesitate to think what his takes would be one them, were he assigned to work on them today.
