I don’t know what is going on in this panel, but Eros is laughing so hard that he falls on his ass. That’s the Starfox we know and love!

If you look at Remender’s twitter, he’s posted a few preview panels from Rage of Ultron. Instead of maybe taking a risk with Eros or focusing a bit more of his whimsical, likable-by-women character, they fed into basically the ‘creepy douchebro’ angle and his establishing scene is him lording over a bunch of fawning, characterless women. mollyhooper-barton posted a page from it.
Obviously this came as zero surprise. Still, it would have been nice to see him … not like that, because it’s a disservice to the character. I’m only hoping that there’s some context behind it, or that it’s ONLY the establishing scene and isn’t his whole personality.
Writers at Marvel lately have been pissing me off with the way they write characters (and by “lately” I really mean at least the past two or three years), ignoring previously established aspects of their personality and kind of watering them down. I feel like a single page is, admittedly, too early to judge, but at the same time, I have to acknowledge that many of Marvel’s writers lately don’t seem to “get” the characters, care about them, or really take the time to do their homework. If his personality does boil down to “Well, he’s a manwhore”, then it’s just one more thing that’s making me lose faith in the company and its writers.I hate feeling that way, but I do.
Yeah it’s a huge dissapointment. There’s another panel too and it’s even worse. It’s actually quite offensive and I just … Hope there’s an explanation of some sort.
I think that the best we’re probably going to get is that writers don’t know how to write.
Looking more carefully at the page in question, I think that my real objection with it is that he’s portrayed as passionless and detached. Eros is a very sexually promiscuous character, but he’s not a womanizer and more represents the good parts of sexuality — namely, the passion and pleasure in it. It’s one of the good things in life and contrasts well against Thanos, who can only love Death.
That’s my main problem with a lot of sub-par writers. They might understand basic personality traits a character has, but they don’t always get what’s beneath them and don’t stop to think about how it reflects how a character ticks. It’s like how Bendis sees cosmic Marvel and thinks to himself that cosmic is just a fancy word for “in space” when it ultimately has to do with the ideas and rhetoric of the stories. It would be like doing an adaptation of Brave New World and forgetting the importance of dystopia, emphasizing only the science fiction aspects. It works on a character level too.
You hit the nail on the head. That’s the wasted potential I’m mourning - and the wasted allegory.
It’s funny because even as a flat caricature it gets his overall vibe wrong: I see no signs of his past chivalry/compassion/whimsy/charm. Instead he has almost more of a villain vibe to him - despicable.
I don’t really get a villain vibe. Not yet. Remember it’s a WIP- they may make changes. Hell, they might actually pay attention to the response on Twitter.
It’s hard to tell from a rough, uncolored, and unlettered panel, but he does seem a little passionless. Maybe there’s a reason for that and we’ll get an explanation.
I read The Death of Captain Marvel, and boy was it sad. Especially this little bit between Mar-Vell and Eros. *cries*
Tag your porn, dammit.
