Morbius already doubled its budget so it's not too surprising.

 

Most people who watched it for the first time were let down not because they were expecting something good, but the internet made them think they were about to watch the superhero version of the Room and instead got a solid mid movie.  

 

Really  wish that trash MK movie got the level of vitriol Moribus got.  Now THAT was, Tekken the Movie with a budget and a better intro.

You are wrong saying the recent MK was as bad as the live action Tekken. The actor for Kano alone had more charisma then the casts of Tekken and DOA combined.

He was alright but I disagree about at least DOA.  Diesel as Bass hit a better chord for me as a fan.  In fact DOA would've easily been the better movie if not for one of the worst final acts I've ever seen.  

 

MK, other than the opening scene, was "Terror Wars Tekken" bad all the way until the end.  I tried describing the plot to Lone Dragon when I saw him at CB and couldn't keep from bursting into laughter at what I was saying when I got to Jax's arcana power being better metal arms after a) he got crappy metal arms earlier and b)  Cole demonstrated not just a better version of the same power, but did so just a scene prior.  

 

Circling back to Marvel, I saw this has been added to Disney plus.  I've only seen one ep but it looked OK.  Did anyone else watch this?

In Marvel Team-Up 8 (April 1973), the feminist superheroine the Cat battled a parody of feminism, the Man-Killer.
She was about to lose the battle for sales, however. Two months later, the fourth and final issue of her title was published.
I have a soft spot for super heroes who never found their audience, and one of them is Greer Nelson, the Cat.
Created by Marvel in 1972 during a feminist wave (Shanna the She-Devil and Night Nurse debuted simultaneously), the Cat joined a seemingly endless line of cat-themed females, from DC’s Catwoman, to Harvey’s Black Cat (and Marvel’s Black Cat), to DC’s Cheetah, to Republic Studios’ Panther Girl, to Archie Comics’ Cat Girl(s), to Dell’s Tiger Girl to, arguably, Ian Fleming’s Pussy Galore, “the female who is all feline,” according to Goldfinger’s movie trailer.

Any guesses as to what this writer’s ethnicity is?

If you’re guessing white you’d be wrong. The writer is Yehudi Mercado who is a Mexican-Jew. that said, I’ve read the issue and a lot of the dialogue and artistic choices are…questionable. 
 

Yehudi isn’t really helping his case by doubling down on his decisions on top of just saying dumb shit in general.  Which is making him look like a racist edgelord and puts him at risk of him being fired from Marvel if not black listed

 

(for the curious the issue in question is “What If…? Miles Morales Issue 4)

This comic apparently came out last week.

I know that twatter assumed that he is white, but he is a mestizo (latino is not a race), since he is mexican/jewish, which means that he is descendant of spaniards, natives and obviously jews.

I know this can be surprising for twatter but white latinos do exist 🤣  (and no, we don't discriminate white latinos for being white)

Just in my family we have roots in blacks, a lot of different native groups, spaniards, arabs, jewish and who knows what more,  like if you see my mother siblings you have people that look black, white and ambiguously brown, we are not homogeneous like twatter likes to believe.

 

If we go to my generations between cousins and me and my siblings we now also have people with roots in germans/switzerland, italians, french, england, philipines, chinese, jewish (directly since my uncle is full jew) and much more, lol, like I said, we don't discriminate white latinos, because in our own families we have white latinos, is the same for the other skin colors (also why racial jokes are met differently)

 

 

 

Saying that.

Those comics where they put Miles as X character feel patronizing if you ask me, leaving aside this particular one that has been bad received, Miles Morales strength is his character, and not him just being black Peter Parker.

 

A good deal of  his starting arc was that he needed to become his own version of spiderman, and when he is written well, his background serves beyond him just being black/black latino, since you can see how it seeps into his moral chore and his view on life.

 

Those comics have been missing the point of that, and only give credence to the idea that he is just black Peter Parker/spiderman instead his own character.

 

Marvel keeps dropping the ball.

I agree with everything you said. From top to bottom marvel fucked up with Thor morales. Big time. 
 

The funny thing is that the three issues before Miles Thor were really really well received and written by black  writers. Iirc they were what if Miles was Hulk, Wolverine and Captain America.
 

 Also the writer that’s causing all the controversy has a track record of writing black characters as very racist stereotypes. Whether it’s design, dialogue or story. 
 

like you can point to writers like Garth Ennis and say “this dude is racist” cause he writes a lot of racial charges things. He’s not though. Those people just aren’t paying attention or don’t know Ennis’s way of story telling. He does those things to point out how ugly, and flat out stupid racism and bigotry is. There’s a nuance to it. 
 

Stuff like the writing and character designs in Thor Miles and Josh Bennet’s bigoted backdrops in immortal hulk are being blatantly racist.
