RE: Women Try To Pose Like Female Comic Book Heroes

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I’m going to try something I’ve never done before: a response post!  Now I’ve never done a response to anything before besides comic book news but I am subscribed to several YouTubers who does response videos for a living so I thought I could try it out myself.  Now this video here was posted 8 months ago at the time of this writing and it is from BuzzFeedYellow.  Now BuzzFeed is very well known on the internet so I’ll only briefly explain who they are.  They’re a series of YouTube channels that are very pro-feminist, pro-tolerance, pro-acceptance, etc.  While none of those are inherently bad, in my opinion at least, they have a reputation for spitting out a lot of low quality videos focusing more on quantity over quality.  Now they are a business so it makes sense on a marketing stand point since the more videos you make the more views you get and the more money you make.  However this does mean that quite a few of these videos are commonly responded to and are often criticized for their stances on things.  Since I talk mainly about comic books on this channel I thought I could take a crack at responding to one of their videos over comic book women.  More specifically how artists chose to pose them.  Because as we all know, women are constantly objectified in mainstream comic books and men are never drawn with unrealistic bodies or in extreme poses.  Now I do want to point out that I will not be taking every second of this video and analyzing every word uttered here simply because I really don’t need to go over when people say things like “I’m nervous” or “I think I can do it”.  I’ll go over the important bits and respond to anything I feel needs a response to.  So let’s begin, shall we?

Spider-Gwen – Character Bio

Spider-woman (Gwen Stacy)Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I figured with All-New, All-Different Marvel going on right now this is the perfect time to start reading characters that you’ve never read before.  So I decided to go over the history of Spider-Gwen and Miles Morales.  I’ll probably have Mile’s bio up soon but right now it’s all about Gwen.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 – Review

Edge of Spider-Verse #2Hello interweb, Nate here.  So since this is the last Friday before Non-Comic Month starts I decided I wanted to review the recently released Spider-Gwen #1 (see that review here), but I know that some of you guys probably haven’t read Edge of Spider-Verse #2 which is the first comic to introduce the Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman character and if I would review Spider-Gwen #1 without reviewing Edge of Spider-Verse #2 then you guys would probably be lost.  No just as an FYI, I haven’t actually bought these comics (even though I probably will next time I go to my local comic store) and I actually read them free on YouTube thanks to the channel House of RM.  You can check out the channel here, you can read Edge of Spider-verse #2 here, and you can read Spider-Gwen #1 here, all for free.  So I’m posting both reviews today for your enjoyment.  Now let the review begin!

Announcements

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Now your probably looking at that rather long chart and wondering: “Why you haz big chart?”.  Well, this chart of future Marvel and DC movies was made a while ago, and I have been meaning to talk about it but I haven’t had time til just now.  Just to be clear, I’m not going to discuss every movie on this chart as that would probably take an hour to read, but I am going to go over the movies I have a strong opinion towards.  So I’m going to start with Marvel, because frankly DC is really scaring me here, and just talk about some movies that are coming out.
