I'm guessing he's just not that kind of writer, a lot of science fiction writers often focus on the criss-crossing storylines and overarching plot while often these obscure characters are only there to push the plot. At least I've felt a similar way towards Alastair Reynolds, which I like, but the hints of personality come off through the dialogue, where they act bitchy or laid back but they're rarely outright developed.>>106517676
I don't know but I also *hope* not, because Cates has no semblance of nuance or storytelling, he just goes for cliffhangers and "fuck yeah" moments that make absolutely no sense, while writing a story he would like to read but not one that's actually good.>>106517690
He's wrong and clearly someone who didn't even read older Avengers or Thor, where they were prominently featured. It's exactly like looking at the last few years and assume nobody cares about the X-Men because there weren't books about them, and not because they were in the freezer for a bit.
That dude right there is just a fanboy like many who don't read beyond the myriad X-Men books and assume everyone else is like that too. Meanwhile, I don't really care about them and I've always been interested in cosmic, and one of the first things that I was absolutely drawn to was the Eternals.
