Dan Slott gets attacked - and grovels - for what was perceived as an anti-trans metaphor in Fantastic Four

It looks like a segment of the PC crowd Slott pandered to before is now turning against him. It began with the following panel from Fantastic Four (via Perch), where a certain retcon for Franklin Richards took place:
So according to Slott, Franklin Richards is not a mutant, and everything's made worse when Charles Xavier decides to expel him from their little isolation point in Krakoa. Just what the world needs. Another disgrace from the pen of Slott.

While this is just a matter of bad, insulting writing that wastes forests worth of paper, something that's been going on for years, it did have the effect of drawing the perpetually outraged over peanuts crowd: some SJW accused Slott of insulting transsexuality and being a TERF, and he blocked the poster, which only drew more perpetual outrage. So what happened next? As you probably expected, though he may not have been clear about details, Slott groveled: So, apologies are made to the social justice advocates, but not to the real Marvel audience whom Slott spent years insulting online and at work by denigrating the MCU, with Mary Jane Watson one of the biggest victims of Slott's machinations. Well, it's pretty apparent men of Slott's standings don't have what it takes to stand up to the bad crowd. He later tried working his way out of it all by saying: To liberals over political issues, that's what. He'll never apologize to fans of Stan Lee's original oversights for all the harm he's caused, hollowing them all out, leaving them a shadow of their former selves. This is not how Marvel/DC should have to end, yet that's just what's happening now. Of course they do: nowhere. Tom Brevoort has been a leading editor of the FF for years. He may have been okay for an editor in the 90s, but since the turn of the century, he's done a 360 and abandoned all respect for the MCU, seeing how continuity was unraveled under his oversight, and he's made things worse by espousing leftism as time went by. He may have stopped since C.B. Cebulski became EIC - that's one good thing about Cebulski taking up the job; he evidently recognized the harm all those vocal moonbats were causing - but Brevoort has never mended the damage done to the MCU within the past 2 decades, and it's clear he's not sorry. It's never been worth taking with Slott, and he's long proven it. His FF run to date's sold poorly, his Iron Man run didn't work out either, and he'll hopefully be canned sooner or later, as it becomes clear nobody cares about his writing. Now, even the PC crowds he's supported are turning against him. Petty as it is, he's done more than enough to make it hard to feel sorry.

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.
