“The Decade Comic Book Nerds became Our Cultural Overlords”

Alex Pappademas writes about “The Decade Comic Book Nerds became Our Cultural Overlords”: “The reason all this should worry you, even if you have zero investment in superhero movies or their relative position vis-a-vis film culture as a whole, is that the response to Scorsese is a populist groundswell in service of the status quo, of corporations, and of power. In the case of Marvel Stans vs. Marty it’s the expression of a vestigial inferiority complex and hypersensitivity to gatekeeping left over from the days when the culture at large couldn’t look at anything comics-related that wasn’t Maus or Watchmen without making jokes about Adam West’s tights, but functionally it’s a mass movement rising up to defend a Goliath against the impertinence of a David.”
