In New Avengers, violence is okay, but profanity is not

Comics2Film talks about the excruciating violence exhibited in New Avengers #35 against Tigra a couple months ago. Oddly enough though, the word "ass", by contrast, is censored.

I agree, that does seem very odd, and pretty hypocritical of them. Even I'd feel more confortable seeing the word "ass" among other profane words clearly displayed on the panels than to see Tigra or any other lady of the EMH being smashed over the face(!) with a Glock pistol.

And I think that begs the question: why exactly aren't people boycotting this book just as much as Amazing Spider-Man after how they undid the Parkers' marriage? I think this too is a perfect candidate for something to avoid. Fortunately, last time I looked at the sales charts, New Avengers had dropped to 105,000 copies sold, so maybe people are starting to wake up. So, can we perhaps get to see the title losing at least another 10 or 20,000 copies in sales? Buying this book the way it's written will only help Joe Quesada as much as buying ASM, ditto the pretentious Brian Bendis, so I hope people will start to consider.

Considering the amount of violence on TV nowadays, I'm not surprised to see that more and more violent actions are becoming the norm rather than the exception.

Nice Work

  • 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.
