I hate that shit so fucking much, man.
Okay, like correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it a general rule that Batman NEVER fucking kills in pretty much almost every version of the character? And then after BvS came out, so many people came out of the wood works to say, "NUH-UH! YOU GUYS DON'T GET IT, SEE! BATMAN KILLS ALL THE FUCKING TIME! ALL. THE. FUCKING. TIME! DON'T YOU GET SNYDER'S GENIUS!?"
They do this with Superman too. "Yeah, hey, I know most Superman stories have been optimistic and fun, with a real sense of wonder to amaze you in crazy ways and all that, but here's this ONE story that was super depressing and had Superman take on real world threats. Don't you get it? You just had your own idea of what Superman was like."
What really gets me is when these people say, "Read a comic sometime." It's like, really? >>87479236
Yeah, I know man. Being a "fan" these days is all a commodity, just something that people use to gain respect in certain social circles and to gain fans. People absorb whatever's popular just to be cool these days. It's really frustrating as someone who's been there for awhile, been a huge fan of comics and whatnot. It's genuinely rare to meet anyone who's into the same shit as me and that makes things lonely sometimes.
