HALF CINEMA CHEERED AND THE OTHER HALF WERE REALLY CONFUSED WHY WE WERE CHEERING
From Elon James White Tuesday night.

How DC ends their movies:
How Marvel ends their movies:
More proof of my belief most people who hate MOS didn’t even pay attention when they watched it. (IF they watched it at all)
I haven’t finished yet but i’ve been watching the Marvel movies and counting all the times the heroes and villains kill ON SCREEN in them. Here’s the count so far.
Iron Man: 73 Obadiah Stane: 21 Ivan Vanko: 7 Mandarin: 11
Hulk: 7 Abomination: 19
Thor: 42 (Actually closer to 70 but he was the hardest to count cause he kills the most amount of people on screen at once.)
Loki: 22 Malekith: 17
Captain America: 30 (not counting The Winter Soldier yet, still need to watch it.)
Red Skull: 10
Black Widow:1 (still not counting TWS yet)
Hawkeye: At least five. The cuts during the Helicarrier attack are too quick to get a proper count.
War Machine: 4
Superman kills ONE person to save the whole goddamn world and you people crucify him for it. Yet every Marvel hero with the exception of the Hulk (THE FREAKIN HULK, OF ALL PEOPLE) have slaughtered way more people than the villains of their movies!! You people complain about how “grim” and “dark” Man of Steel is. But you fail to realize that the MCU is much more darker. You just can’t see that because Marvel shrouds their movies with a thin veil of humor.
Now before you bitch to me about Black Widow saying Loki killed 80 people in two weeks in The Avengers, here’s some food for thought.
I only counted on screen deaths. It’s impossible to even hypothesize how many people died in city destruction or what-have-you. If you want to count it. Please be my guest. Congratulations, he’s just BARELY a better murderer than Iron Man.
I love the MCU. It’s a lot of fun to watch. But I also love Man of Steel. And I think the problem with you uppity fan people is that you fail to realize that MoS actually made it feel like the world was at stake. Do you reallllly think Iron Man alone could keep all the invading Chitauri within a three block radius? By himself? How long was that wormhole open? How stupid would that make the Chitauri? How convenient was it that the nuke Iron Man led into the wormhole just shuts off the remaining Chitauri all at once. How convenient is it that only one person (maybe) dies on screen during the Chitauri invasion. At least people died at the hands of the villain in MoS. That’s what the Marvel movies lack, a sense of danger.
Man of Steel has plenty of issues on it’s own. But, the destruction of Metropolis, killing Zod, and it’s “darkness” are not one of them.
Now one more point. Superman stands for truth, justice and THE AMERICAN WAY right? Right.
Now consider this. In The Avengers, the government was willing to blow up the island of Manhattan with a nuke to keep the invasion from becoming worldwide. That’s fair. And i’d say it’s a pretty fair assumption the American government would do that in a similar situation in real life.
So if the American government is willing to kill for the greater good of the country, or the planet. And Superman stands for the American way. Then shouldn’t it be okay for Superman to kill (remorsefully, mind you) one person if said person threatened to kill everyone on the planet, having no other means of stopping him?
Just think about that.
What ticks me off is how some Marvel fans unleash the full force of the MCU against the lone movie of Man of Steel. You know it’s kinda unfair that you pick the best parts of a 10 film franchise then choose the “worst” parts of a single film you hate. DC doesn’t have a cinematic universe yet.
But overall good commentary. I think Sups killing Zod is justified a lot.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
I hate when a person says they’ve had a bad day and everyone, instead of trying to cheer them up, enters a competition of who’s had the shittest life
