Turning Movies into Comic Books

September 28, 2009 § Leave a comment

Every single time a new super hero movie comes out, a new series of comic books HAVE to come out too.  Which comic books am I speaking of?  The ones that take our beloved heroes stories and change them up a bit to fit the new story line for the MOVIE.  Case in Point:  New movie Iron Man 2 so new comic book…

Iron Man Vs. Whiplash #1

Now, I don’t know exactly how different this new movie storyline is going to be from the comic books but these comics are just completely worthless.  I understand that Marvel needs to make money and that publishing books based on the movie sparks interest in and reaches a whole new target audience, but I feel like these new books are cheating on the old storylines!

Think about it!  Why did they choose to make a movie with these characters?  BECAUSE OF THE COMIC BOOKS!  The stories and characters in the comic books were so good somebody thought it would be a good idea to make movies out of them right?!?  So, why reverse the process?!?  We’re not making a movie from completely new concepts, stories and characters and some genius thought it would be a good idea to put them in a comic book NO!!!  It’s the other way around people!

I understand that the story has to change a bit to fit the silver screen and I don’t care about that; If I walk into a movie and in no way expect them to follow the comics I walk away entertained every time!  The point is that in the comic world it is meaningless to release a book like this;  Marvel should do itself a favor and instead put out a fresh series outlining the real history of these two characters so that comic people and movie people will pick it up and possibly enjoy it, instead of releasing the ‘refab’ story and having it suck like most of these comic types do.

Going to get my inhaler and calm down a bit now,
