Marvel Comic-Movie Synergy: It’s (Not) All Good (from Comic Book Resources)

Right now, it feels like Marvel is trying to have it both ways, trying to cater to new fans by remaking the MU in the MCU’s image, which means they’re also trying to cater to Disney — the massive entity that purchased the company because of it’s character library and has seen great success with it on the big screen. It’s also catering to hardcore comic book fans by publishing some of the most artistically inventive superhero comics on the shelves today. This is the company that gave us a nearly all LGBT team in Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s “Young Avengers.” This is the company that let Fraction, David Aja and Annie Wu do “Hawkeye” on their own terms. Marvel Comics gave Dan Slott and Mike Allred “Silver Surfer” and said “Go nuts!” This is why these efforts to shoehorn elements from the films into the comics feel disheartening.
