I don't know what the point of those videos was if not to make me suspect their CGI is going to suck so badly they were afraid to show anything and scare people off.

First time I've heard of the property, so I have no idea what Subby is on about.

oh, a Mark Millar adaptation ?

Did it have to be seriously toned down in its violence, nihilism and sociopathy, so that people can watch it without feeling dirty?

People are going to confuse this with Jupiter Ascending, and those same people are gonna be pretty disappointed when Channing Tatum isn't running around with doggie ears shooting a gun that makes little puppy ARF ARF noises.

Don't forget the rampaging misogyny.

Seriously, though, is the comic worth reading or is it just more Millar "I'm angry and Scottish and stuff," nonsense like in Kick-Ass and Kingsman.

/Nihilism is baby's first philosophy, and it definitely shows in his work.
//However, Matthew Vaughn's film adaptations tone down the whole "Maggie Thatcher eats babies, so let's go Frank Miller on all the women" vibe and are quite enjoyable.

Mark Millar has always struck me as Garth Ennis without the humor and wit.

I don't mind them making a TV adaptation of this as it will save me from having to look at Frank Quitely's artwork.

Tried getting into that series, read the first issue and barely made it through it.

People on YouTube already think that. Netflix didn't help itself by the short voice only teaser

There are no boobs in this story, just stuffing, by the looks of it. Same for the dudes, minus the boobs.

It's...okay. It's basically a familial generational conflict ramped up to 11. The original generation are all Golden Age progressive, morally superior Ubermensch that seem to have no faults. The new generation is in conflict because they don't think their parents went far enough to improve the world and they should be the ones in charge.

Gail Simone's Welcome to Tranquility is an excellent take on older superheros.

I kid, but honestly I'd be more interested if it WAS a sequel to Jupiter Ascending. At least that had a decent chase scene and Mila Kunis at near-peak-hotness wearing alien Barbie clothes.

So the side effect of Disney adapting some actual good comics and doing an actual good job of it, and those being popular, is that we now have to put up with every farking edgy-thirteen-year-old '90s comic being adapted in the XXX-TREEMZ?

... except that the actual edgy '90s dark age comics were already adapted in the '90s, so we're not even getting that, we're getting the even shiattier wannabe '90s X-TREEM 13-year-old pizza cutter comics from later adapted?

Like... come the fark on, you dipshiats.  That worked all of once, it only half-worked even then, and The Boys has already been adapted.  farkING STOP IT.

// Seriously, man.  Even the comic was recycled garbage where Millar was trying to make a knockoff version of shiat that was already a knockoff version of his own previous work.  Adding another layer of lost in translation to this is not going to suddenly make the product good.

I still have a hard time accepting that he wrote Old Man Logan, which ended on a surprisingly hopeful note and didn't depict everyone as an uncaring pit of edgelords.

Hey now, Millar's Superman Adventuresis light-hearted and fun.

/mostly because it's a comic version of StAS but with a bit more "fun" attached to it

The 'Lover's Quarrel' story arc in Kurt Busiek's Astro City is a fantastic look at 'normal human' crimefighters dealing with age and the reality of their bodies not being able to perform the way they used to.

So very much this.  

Sure each to their own for artistic appreciation, but while he might not be the worst comic book artist around he's the worst comic book artist that keeps getting regular work in major titles.   Half of his characters look like they have some sort of evil crossover disease between progeria, rickets and, ecthyma.

Still not as bad as Riley Rossmo who has to have dirt on somebody at DC. Erica Henderson, thankfully, seems to have stopped being hired by the big two.

The good edgy comics were adapted in the oughts. Sin City, 300, Watchmen, Nolan's Batman, et. Dark Age comics that were adapted in the 90's? Hmmmm.. Spawn? But the Spawn movie was silly. Delightfully, entertainingly so, but still not edgy on film.

I need Matt Wagner's Grendel & Mage comics to get adapted, dammit.  Gimme the GOOD stuff!

Kick-Ass came out the year before the first Thor film.
