DC Comics Writer Attacks Batman With “White Privilege” Claim

Et tu, Batman?

------------------------------------------------------------------------

(This is all based on some ignorant cunt named Magdalene Visaggio, aka -  "Zoya the Destroya" on twitter, who is evidently a comic writer or some shit?  On her Twitter feed she's also asking people to help fund her gender confirmation surgery. I was going to suggest the Hindu method and jump off of a building so you can come back as something else, but that's some bannable salt there, so I demurred.)

DC Comics writer Magdalene Visaggio who writes Eternity Girl and was a back-up writer on Mother Panic/Batman Special #1 decided to bite the hands that feeds by attacking DC Comics’ most iconic comic book character, Batman.

Visaggio would sarcastically Tweet, “there should be a superhero whose power is white privilege. Oh wait thats batman.”

As for the idea that Batman has white privilege and is able to escape the consequences of his actions it shows a clear lack of understanding of the character by Visaggio. As many fans rightfully pointed out, Batman uses his fortune to fight crime. Crime that stole the life of his parents from him at a young age. Not only does he work to fight crime but in many cases he also uses it in philanthropic manners where he tries to improve neighborhoods.

There are also numerous storylines where Batman loses his fortune and even sees all of his hard-work and preparation turned against him. The most recognizable of these storylines is Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises. Bane takes everything from Batman and is even planning to nuke the city. Batman doesn’t give up and finds a way to get back into the fight to stop him. He sacrifices his body and potentially his life to stop Batman. That’s real privilege there.

And as for being immune from consequences, just take a look at Sean Gordon Murphy’s Batman: White Knight. Batman is anything, but immune to consequences. Due to his erratic behavior, he drives away his trusted allies in Barbara Gordon, Dick Grayson, and Jim Gordon. He ends up being the one locked up.

You could say "who/" about any current comic book writer.  They're not exactly the kind of folk that are world famous.

It is an indication of just how far off the rails the current comic industry is.  In a time when comic movies rule the entertainment universe, the comic side is at a near all-time low.

What the hell is wrong?

A "social justice" which is ironically anti-social and anti-justice Marxist garbage designed to enslave those who don't tow the line and lie prostate before it's tyranny.

But that's just a pet theory of mine.

I haven't given it all that much thought reallly.

I'll just continue to nonchalantly sip my iced tea.

C'est la vie.

The King goes on justified rants all the time about how the comics industry is dying. I totally believe him.

And in this day and age too, where comic movies couldn't be hotter, you'd think this would be a new golden age for comics.

Well theres a distinct division. There are old school comic BOOK fans who hate the new movies and their success because they aren't slavishly following the comics. The new Thor movie is an example. "Thor doesn't talk like that!" "They've RUINED the character FOREVER." And the new comic MOVIE fans who look into the classic comics that inspired their favorite movies and find them trite and stupidly written. Neither group realizes they now need both comics and movies to succeed.

Case in point, fall down the rabbit hole with this video series.


This guy hates his customers, he hates the creators, he hates the conventions. He hates everything that allows him to make a living. It's weird.

Dude, that IS weird.

Now there's following mythology when it makes sense, then there's just telling a good story, also when it makes sense.

See "The Walking Dead".

So weird...
