Black Batman

I cannot even describe how delighted I am to hear the latest rumors about DC’s insistence on ritual self-disembowelment:

The hot gossip coming out of comic book shows this weekend from a number of prominent sources, is that in the summer of 2020 leading into 2021, DC Comics is planning to bring us a black Batman. Not Bruce Wayne, but someone else donning the cowl and cape.

Who this new Batman will be, I don’t know. All I have been told is that it won’t be Duke Thomas, the young man previously teased as taking on the role of Robin and Batman to come.

Marvel Comics has given us a black/Latino Spider-Man with Miles Morales, popularised in the Into The Spider-Verse movie. Sam Wilson took on the role of Captain America, reflected in the Avengers: Endgame movie. And Nick Fury has been replaced in the Marvel Universe by his black son, Nick Fury, Jr, reflecting the casting of Samuel L Jackson in the Marvel movies. While in Doomsday Clock, DC Comics’ unauthorised sequel to Watchmen, the new Rorschach is a black man, and son of the original Rorschach’s psychiatrist. It looks like the mainstream DC Comics Universe may be heading in a similar direction with Batman. Could this also find itself reflected in the DC movies?

If there was much doubt about AT&T deciding to shut down the production of new comics at DC, the market’s reaction to this should settle that in a… flash? I wonder if we can persuade them to make the black Batman gay too? Isn’t it about time? After all, it’s CURRENT YEAR!

Meanwhile, Shade of the Global Justice Initiative remains white.

I love the smell of tortious interference

VFM, get me a full workup on this guy. Depending on how this plays out, this may give us the opportunity to bring the Legal Legion into play. I doubt we’ll have to bankrupt many SJWs before they learn to stop trying to swarm public figures.

Tortious interference, also known as intentional interference with contractual relations, in the common law of torts, occurs when one person intentionally damages someone else’s contractual or business relationships with a third party causing economic harm.

UPDATE: As it happens, nothing will come of this particular effort. Apparently either this guy or someone else already tried impersonating a CNN reporter…. Also, the Indiana show is very nearly sold out already.

UPDATE: The Indiana show is now sold out. One down, three to go!

AH vol. 1 on BIC

Vox Day announced Alt-Hero Volume 1 is now available in both hardcover and paperback.

This first volume is written by Vox Day with art by Cliff Cosmic and Richard Bonk. It collects the first six issues of Alt-Hero. Not only does it collect the first six issues of Alt-Hero, but it will also contain bonus material in the form of character illustrations, a number of which have not been seen before. The first volume is 168 pages in total.

Vox gave us a sneak peek at one of those never before seen character illustrations. Take a look.

To the right are character illustrations for Candle and Cloud, two of the UN superheroes from The War in Paris. You can also see what the cover image for the backers-edition hardcover looks like at Bounding Into Comics.

BIC also helpfully alerts us to the way in which Marvel and the Devil Mouse are continuing to methodically destroy every last vestige of Stan Lee’s legacy.

British comedian and recently announced Ms. Marvel showrunner Bisha K. Ali appears to have mysteriously deleted 5,000 tweets and locked her numerous social media accounts prior to Disney’s official announcement.

Ali’s social media purge was discovered following the D23 Expo announcement of her involvement in the Ms. Marvel television series, as fans flocked to social media to learn more about the relatively unknown comedian whose IMDB page lists a total of 9 credits. However, upon attempting to access her various social media accounts, fans discovered that her pages had been hidden from the public: her Twitter , Instagram, and Facebook accounts, along with her personal webpage, were set to private.

While Ali has not publicly given a reason for this attempt to hide her internet presence from the public, fans noted that Ali had deleted a total of 5,268 tweets less than a month prior to Disney’s announcement.

It is currently unknown what the contents of her deleted tweets were or what prompted the mass deletion of tweets, but Google search results and a handful of archived posts have led to speculation that Ali deleted the tweets due to her social justice-based progressive beliefs and views.

A TV show based on a Muslim superhero comic that no one reads created by a British SJW that no one knows. Sounds good to me! Snicker-snack…. 

The convergence spreads

No matter what your hobby, the Narrative will infiltrate, infect, and invade it:

The longtime internet knitting community Ravelry updated its content policy this week to ban support of President Donald Trump from the platform. The new policy holds that support for Trump is support for white supremacy, which is not conducive to positive community-building.

Ravelry’s announcement of the policy change, made on Twitter on June 23, was short and to the point, noting, “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy.”

We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. 

In the full updated policy, Ravelry clarified that its ban on Trumpism “includes support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.” The policy also states that the ban does not apply to other forms of conservative content, nor is it intended to target conservative Ravelry users themselves, specifying that “hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.”

The policy also notes that Ravelry is following the lead of the longtime gaming forum, which banned Trump support in October 2018.

Tolerance, Equality, Progress, Inclusivity, and Diversity. Those are the infection vectors of the Narrative. If you support any of those things in any capacity, if you so much as permit any of those things, your organization will be converged.

She killed Vertigo

It appears Marvel is next:

Marvel Comics announced they hired Zoe Quinn to write a Hellcat story in their four-issue anthology series titled Fearless. Quinn was part of the creative team behind Vertigo and DC Comics’ Goddess Mode. Her book was part of a line-wide relaunch and rebranding effort for Vertigo Comics. Instead, DC Comics would shut the entire publishing imprint down.

I love how SJWs always double down. I really do.

No safe space for the wicked

Not even Playboy can escape the ravages of the SJW.

Playboy has hired a team of millennials to transform it into a socially conscious publication as it struggles to find its voice in the modern era. It relaunched earlier this year as an ad-free quarterly under the editorial leadership of a gay man and two women who are all under the age of 32.

On the plus side, this is going to make Zoe Quinn’s forays into games and comics look like mega-successes by comparison. Lest you think I exaggerate, feast your eyes on one of Playboy’s new models.

Woke is the new hot!

Self-destruction is the aim

In the midst of an epic discussion of the SJW murder of Marvel’s god of thunder, John C. Wright pens an appropriately thunderous anathema:

If self destruction were not the aim, it is certainly an odd coincidence that the Left just so happens to destroy everything and create nothing.

They promote sexual perversion, they promote male athletes pretending to be female compeating in women’s sports, human feces heaped on the sidewalks in San Francisco while (at the same time) claiming it is racist to use hoses to clean the sidewalks, on the grounds that hoses were used against black protesters during the Civil Rigths march.

They side with terrrorists over the Jews, jihadists over homosexuals, and with the CIA and big business when and only when those organizations are acting in a corrupt and illegal fashion, but not when they fuction as designed.

When Russia was soviet, they all rushed to defend it. Not that is it not, they denounce it as the greatest of threats.

They are against nuclear energy but also against fossil fuels.

They favor infanticide, divorse, contraception, and euthanasia, but they hate the traditional family.

The hang toilets in modern art museums, cans of human feces, and paintings of the Virgin covered in dung.

They favor Newspeak over English, or, in other words, they are against language except when it is corrupt.

They adore and laud pervert pride parades, but then scream with bugeyed hysteria at a Fourth of July parade.

They hate cops.

And the list goes on and on and on. In not a single case is their any evidence of them building up anything after destroying what came before.

There is no new form of family, no new form of modern art, no new form of gender-free English, no new form of law enforcement, no new form of government, and no new rules of courtesy and politeness. There is nothing but continued condemnation of the old forms as unjust.

Imagine a man who aims and misses the mark but hits his rich uncle through a distant bedroom window over and over and over again. The claim that his true goal is to hit the mark cannot be believed after the hundredth shaft shot unerringly into the old man’s corpse.

Deliberate? Uncle Screwtape’s deceit of them might be deliberate. I am not sure if the word deliberate has any meaning when dealing with minds unable and unwilling to deliberate anything.

Self-destruction is always and ever the aim of Satandom. This is because the god of this world hates humanity, and he hates all that is Good, that is Beautiful, and that is True. Whether you prefer to call his servitors the Left, SJWs, the Chantry Guild, or the Synagogue of Satan, the single most important thing to understand is that their actions are never coincidental or ironic or mistaken, they are always purposeful.

Their entire purpose, their only objective, is to destroy. That is why no amount of appeals to reason, to capitalism, or to profit motive will ever prevail. That is why creators and builders must always remain awake and on guard against their blandishments, their appeals, and their offers.

So, about that Thor idea

We may have to get a move on:

A new report suggests Marvel Studios will cast a transgender female character in one of their upcoming Phase 4 projects.

The report comes from Geeks World Wide, who indicate the character is currently using the codename “Jessica.” They go on to indicate that they are looking for a “transwoman actress of any ethnicity in her 20s to 30s.”

Geeks World Wide speculates that the character will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder as they state “the casting breakdown calls for ‘transgender actresses only.’” They go on to indicate the character will be Sera.

Sera first appeared in Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1 back in 2015. Sera was created by Kieron Gillen, Marguerite Bennett, and Phil Jimenez. Sera was a member of a group of wingless male Angels from Heven called Anchorites that were being held by the Hierophants.

The Devil Mouse really does seem hell-bent on tearing down Stan Lee’s legacy as rapidly as possible.

Disarming the attack media

The Deuce may have correctly anticipated the purpose of the Wired article that is purportedly about Google:

My guess is that they’re going to ask Google, purely out of journalistic interest of course, if they consider hosting an “alt-right” blog to be within their policies regarding hate speech.

Yes, there is a very good chance that this is the author’s attempt to utilize a weaponized media platform in order to induce Google to break its contract with me. That is exactly what Amanda Robb tried to do, unsuccessfully, with Amazon, and what she did somewhat more successfully with Indiegogo, much to the latter’s regret.

(In case you didn’t know, Indiegogo’s CEO, General Counsel, and Head of Trust & Safety have all already become casualties of Indiegogo’s ongoing encounter with the Dread Ilk. And it’s not over yet; there is at least one more skull we anticipate collecting by the time this comes to an end. In the metaphorical sense, the metaphorical sense, you understand.)

Al Letson: Why is Amazon distributing this book?

Amanda Robb: Well I asked Amazon, and someone from their PR department got back to me. He said it falls within their guidelines. He helpfully sent me a link to their guidelines so I click on them and it says their definition of offensive material is, and I’m quoting, “What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect.”

Al Letson: That doesn’t make sense because I find this offensive and they don’t find it offensive.

Amanda Robb: Well it’s a very moveable goalpost, it turns out. Amazon changes what it thinks is offensive all the time.

Al Letson: I don’t know. That rule seems pretty flimsy.

Amanda Robb: Not only is Amazon distributing the digital version, it’s number one in its category on Amazon.

This tactic of weaponizing the media to leverage a platform in order to deny its services to a target has been used against many innocent individuals. Fortunately, our research has found that there are a number of legal remedies in various jurisdictions that are useful for holding parties who induce a breach of contract liable for their actions. Interestingly enough, being a self-employed, self-styled journalist is no defense against personal liability in these matters. I spoke with one of the leaders of the Legal Legion of Evil concerning this and we’re now actively looking into the optimal system, place, and method of systematically holding these attack SJWs accountable for their defamation and deplatforming campaigns.

So, if you’re a lawyer, you oppose the SJW weaponization of the media, and you’re potentially interested in joining the Disarm the Attack Media Now campaign, shoot me an email identifying the specific jurisdictions in which you are licensed to practice. We’re particularly interested in CA, WA, and the UK.

And apropos of absolutely nothing at all, if you are one of the many people that Amanda Robb contacted, please be sure to save and screenshot her approaches to you on Facebook, Linked In, email, or whatever.

Convergence is the corporate cancer

An Australian company intentionally devalues performance:

Atlassian says it will no longer tolerate “brilliant jerks” who deliver results for the company but make life hell for their co-workers as part of a complete overhaul of how the tech firm conducts performance reviews.

The $47 billion Australian software company, which was founded in Sydney in 2002 and floated on the US stock market in 2015, says two-thirds of every performance review will now have nothing to do with job skills.

Instead, equal weighting will be given to how each of its 3000 employees impacts others on their team, and to how they live the company values. Atlassian says the change will “more fairly measure people on how they bring their whole self to work”.

While it’s true that teamwork is an important element of success in any organization, establishing feelings as the basis for evaluating performance is assuring rule by the most sensitive. Which in this case means that gamma males and women will soon rule the company and the ability to actually get anything done will become irrelevant.

One need only to look at Apple in the post-Jobs era to see what difference the loss of just one “brilliant jerk” can make to even the most successful corporation. Then contemplate the consequences of eliminating all of them from an organization.
