She is unimpressed



Ryu no Seishin is observably unimpressed by the shamefully unsuper SJW-heroes of Marvel and DC. She would eviscerate the "unbeatable" Squirrel Girl with a flick of the wrist and have her skin turned into gloves without so much as blinking an eye.

A well-known conservative site has confirmed that they will be running an article about Alt★Hero later today, complete with an interview with me and exclusive new Rebel artwork. I also really like where Chuck Dixon is going with the city of Avalon, which is beginning to come to life.

To help make this happen, join the campaign. I think you'll be glad you did.

Hmm. I'm sure the additional exposure will draw out a bunch more backers for the last third of the campaign, the only question is how much. I'm pumped to see the $150,000 mark made - $200,000 might be a stretch, given 10 days, but who knows?

Of course, the cucks are also going to come out to play with their bowties. I expect them to deliver the usual cries of "that's not who we are!".

That being said, there really has been less media buzz about all this than one would expect; one would have imagined there would be more indignant outrage. Maybe there will be more when the comics hit release.

"She would eviscerate the "unbeatable" Squirrel Girl with a flick of the wrist and have her skin turned into gloves without so much as blinking an eye."

Incorrect. Vox, I hate/love ya... but you're going up against hard fact here. Unless Ryu no Seishin is a beyond star breaker buster... which I really doubt from you and Chuck, especially considering the overall street, maybe city busting levels at most I'm sensing from this work so far, she'd probably lose and lose royally. I mean, Squirrel Girl has defeated the likes of 616 Dr. Doom and Thanos, both of which are at least at star busting levels in 616 by feats and correct use of power scaling. While Squirrel probably was turned into a horrible SJW rather than just the fun joke character she was, especially if other characters weren't sparred the Marvel SJW idiot ball, unless she suffered some serious power seepage... Squirrel Girl would win in a bloodlusted competition... and this isn't a joke.

In case anyone's wondering, yes, I do think about versus scenarios near constantly, it's consumed many hours of my life at many ungodly hours of the night and it's been a tremendous boon to my thought processes and writing, because if nothing else, it's given me an appreciable sense of scale of power even in scenarios that come to the wire or are otherwise to ambiguous to call and has also made me realize that sci-fi/fantasy/and superhero writers, as a general real, have no proper sense of scale and generally do not wish to properly convey even to do the reader a proper sense of scale or even to be consistent (though, to be fair, at least modern writers, unless you're dealing with particularly bad ones, will at least be internally consistent... except when they aren't).

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ScifiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale

It's also made giving my readers a proper sense of scale, consistency in power showings, and some hard numbers three prime directives of mine in my work, because damn it, if only the Forerunners Fortress Class Starship had some more numbers behind its firepower, max sustained rate of acceleration, shielding, and FTL capabilities, then we could finally know just how Culture-Lite they are and how big the stomp them vs the 41st Century versions of IOM, Nids, Eldar, Dark Eldar, Orks, Tau, bog standard Chaos, and bog Standard Necrons really is.

Oh, that's coming, you can bet your sweat bippy on that. The counter of course is to keep aggressively marketing on any ally's place that you can... even Steven Crowder because, even if he lets Ben Shapiro on too many times, he'll at least hear you out and let you plug. I mean, shit, he's let McGiness and Peterson on and doesn't mind, even likes them, so why not?

Probably. Real life Jack Kirby has no real feats to speak of and was a scrawny dude even back in his Navy days and couldn't even take an older, current Vox whose currently just past his physical prime. Assuming Ryu no Seishin has even some decent street level feats, let alone anything beyond that, she'd probably kill him 666 ways from Sunday, if ya catch my drift.

Rhetoric v. dialectic. Whatever arbitrary power levels characters may have don't factor into this discussion(/fight) in a meaningful way.

Especially when you're dealing with the author; Vox can always just, and arguably in some sense already has, just declare that this superhero has the power to beat any other particular hero, and voila, it is true. Precisely because of how easy that is, in either direction, it's meaningless.

Hi vox, I’m a small level backer on both voxiversity and alt hero. Reading your post above gave me an idea; is there scope to have alt hero serialised at other sites? Think snoopy in the back of the papers but for the modern generation. It’s exposure for you and content for them.

I almost didn’t suggest it in this comment as I figured you’ve already thought about it, but then the only stupid question is the one that isn’t asked, right?

I understand the rhetorical value of assailing Jack Kirby but don't lose sight of the fact that he was called "The King" for a reason. Diversity & Comics does a balanced analysis of the man who is synonymous with the success of Marvel Comics.

My mental deterioration has progressed to the point where when I encounter works of fiction I end up reworking them in my mind into what I would like them to be. I tend to favor the less spectacular but hopefully more believable. One fantasy was for The Wolverine to have sharp fingernails instead of those big sword like projections. Plus I would make him a little less tough. It lessens drama if he can't be killed. Plus it requires the invention of exotic villains to rise to the challenge of being a hazard for the hero, making the whole thing less believable.

Apparently somebody thinks half way the way I do with Ryu. Hey, the weapons are sharp fingernails. Hopefully sharp enough that she can with one thrust rip your heart out. A real heartthrob, so to speak.

I'm backing this at several levels (not statue level).
I've seen a number of comments on Alt*Hero posts about making the women's outfits skimpier/sexier/non-existent.

You don't need that. You can get the cosplay version, or special art versions that aren't part of the main theme. Or go to the internet.

My two cents, keep the female characters attractive, make their outfits in alignment with golden or silver aged or even bronze age comic era, and please keep them in the realm of family friendly.

I'd like to share this with my soon to be teen aged son and don't want to cringe later if it starts going too much to the dark side.

As this is a post giving general points about the campaign, I'd like to request that someone tidy up the Reward descriptions. The descriptions are not readily comparable:

"Digital Reader
... It will also include the next three digital editions if the campaign reaches Stretch Goal #6, Volumes VII, VIII and IX.

T-shirt
... as well as the three digital editions.

Volume V
...All backers at the Digital Reader level and above will receive it."

So T-shirt c/w I, II, III, V, but not IV? etc. etc.

Maybe doing this could help someone who has not yet subscribed make the decision.

An aggressive Squirrel Girl would spend half her time obsessing about the limited knowledge she does understand, but not very well. This is not true of the sweet non-aggressive very low IQ types, but add aggression and you often get "Meaning Grubbing" to prove they are as smart as any one.

But take the option off and un-bundle Rebel for the remaining 10 days, and see how many go for it.

Rebel figurine w/shirt+paperback @ $150, minus $30 paperback, minus $50 shirt = $70.

Anyone who wants the shirt and paperback can just check those boxes too, same price for the same things.  You've got 322 Rebels left to go and they're not going fast.  You might get to 180 at this pace, $1800 more.  If you get to 300 at the $70 price point, that's an additional $9.2k.

It's really quite simple for the NFL. There are already rules against obscene/disrespectful gestures -- like flipping the bird -- that result in fines or whatever. All they need to do is reclassify certain actions into this category, such as:

- kneeling during the national anthem. Any other time (e.g., "Tebowing") is OK.

- displaying a raised, clenched fist (e.g., "Black Power salute") at any time, as it is disrespectful toward non-blacks. Raising the index finger (as in "Number 1" or "all glory to God") is OK.

- Kneeling on all fours and mock-peeing on the ball after scoring a touchdown is OK, since the shame and embarrassment endured after doing that as a grown man is its own punishment.
