It's especially infuriating to me when it's the byproduct of their own shit writer, in this case Way, and the reception of the writer's fans, or generally just misinformed fans, yet the character has to hold the cross therein.
An obvious example is the infamous Hank Pym matter. Writers down the road have other characters acting as though it's entirely the fault of the character rather than acknowledging someone was fucking up off screen.
Now of course most would think>Well what are they supposed to do? Break the 4th wall? Criticize their fellow employees? Just ignore it
And my answer is Yes. YES. YES!
If you're going to get referential to begin with don't half-ass it.
Fuck this sort of thing.
