Eric July Calls Out Marvel for Writing Laziness

Filed under: entertainment — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:55 PM (18:55)

Eric July, frontman for Backwordz, recently called out the Marvel “bullpen” for laziness and sloppiness with their endless rebooting[1] of their characters and storylines —

I agree with Mr. July 1000 percent, and have said so several times in the past.

To date, the ONLY reboot that significantly improved upon the source material was Ronald D. Moore’s 2003 remake of the Battlestar Galactica franchise.

Compare and contrast Marvel’s incessant rebooting with Star Trek in 1986.

Gene Roddenberry wanted to bring the franchise back to television, but couldn’t afford the salaries that William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, and DeForest Kelley could command. Rather than casting new actors in the established roles, he created a new slate of previously unknow characters, and thus Star Trek: The Next Generation was born.

Star Trek: The Original Series lasted three years (1966-1969) in its original run, while The Next Generation (1987-1994), Deep Space Nine (1993-1999), and Voyager (1995-2001) ran for seven seasons each, followed by Enterprise (2001-2005), which ran for four seasons.

Thus, I think it’s fair to say that while rebooting your franchise may seem like the thing to do at the moment, not doing so may give your franchise a longer, richer life.

    Good question. Can’t say that Arizona would be wrong to reject bits of New Mexico.

    Here’s an idea: parents take actual responsibility for their kids’ education by home schooling them instead of schluffing them off onto the rest of the population.

    Zbiggie was a State Department weenie in the Carter Administration, if I recall correctly.
