Default Batwoman (CW)



Quote:
The origin story sets the stage with Kate, who identifies as a lesbian, desperate to rescue her love Sophie Moore, despite the trepidation of Kate's father who worries about his little girl.
But he need not because she forces her way into her cousin's bat cave and demands the Batman suit be fixed.
When told the suit "is literal perfection," she quips, "It will be -- when it fits a woman."
Quote:
Once Kate starts vanquishing evil in Gotham, the citizens mistake her for the Caped Crusader.
"I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work," she says.
Dear God no. The reboot of Ghostbusters is looking effing PHENOMENAL after reading this nonsense.

INB4 people come in and say "Oh this just HAPPENS to be how the writers of the show want to do things, there's no agenda behind it, you guys are paranoid." Nevermind that all of this stuff is unescapable nowadays in all entertainment. This is perpatuated in almost all CW shows right now. The Flash had the longest run ( ) without much politics going into it and I was enjoying it thoroughly. It had a perfect and diverse cast with male and female heroines. When they create division and resentment due to identities that's when it just bugs the hell out of me. The Flash is now changing rapidly to match the other CW shows in that direction, RIP. I really did enjoy it a lot.

I wonder if going "woke" is profitable. A lot of businesses are following suit. I actually think the people making the business decisions don't give two craps about the politics themselves, but rather are instead thinking they are following trends which will make them more money. Time will tell.



As to me, someone give me a time machine, it doesn't have to take me far, just bring me anywhere in between 90s-early or pre-10s and we're good.

I like my human, non-superpower, superheros to be realistically outfitted.

Batman is.

Arrow is ...

Batgirl isn't.

That's a cosplay outfit.

Only 10? Unless the pendulum swings faster the other way, I'd say at least 25. Time to stock the bunker.

The main reason that the comic books are all becoming tv shows and movies is because Hollywood hasn't had an original idea since 1984.

There is so much written in comics over the last 90 years that they have a lot to work with. It's just too damn bad that most of the people that are stealing these ideas haven't cracked a single comic like ever.

That is the main reason that I like the Marvel stuff. At least they try and understand the comics and the characters. They stay pretty close to the intent of the books.

DC............... Well, they screw up more stuff than they produce. Prime example. Superman DOES NOT KILL. How can you screw that up?

But yeah, as soon as Hollywood starts to get off their high horse and get new stories and ideas then we are in this rut.

Rumor has it that the CW Batwoman's nemesis will be Lesbovine. Think Poison Ivy as a lesbian cow.

Not even close. Zer nemesis is AlphaMan.

AlphaMan supports his family economically, guides them morally and farts inappropriately.

Nope, couldn't even finish watching the trailer for it. Hard pass, just like with Captain Marvel. Comics these days are little more than yet another hijacked vehicle for the "progressive" message.

Exactly. Take me back to the 80s, and to my teenaged self again. This time I know much better what to do and not do, and what to appreciate and focus on. And maybe I can nip this modern tendency in the bud, just like good ol' Grumpy Cat did when he was around, RIP.

The worst thing about these shows that pander to gender and identify politics is that, it's just really bad writing. There's no subtlety to it, there's no nuance.

There are people who rip on Game of Thrones because Jon Snow is just a 'boring white guy' who 'fails upwards' because he's a man. And that is 'lazy writing'.

But what they have there for Batwoman is just plain bad writing. It's not storytelling. It's not even writing that fails to understand the perspective of other people, and makes culturally insensitive errors through ignorance, thus perpetuating society's ingrained biases. What Batwoman is, is just taking potshots. Intent is worse than negligence.
