imagine the amount of social credit dc would get if they remembered about this dude
>>127248558He is better than Val Zod
>>127248558Nobody gave a shit about this book, and it's frankly baffling that /co/ pretends to.
>>127248558Anon, this story was literally "China is authoritarian and corrupt". This would be John Xina again.
>>127248558Man Fick Gene Yang for hating on the Great 10.
>>127250030Fuck off literal redditor.
>>127250100You fuck off. Why the FUCK does /co/ pretend to like this book? Makes no sense whatsoever.
>>127250151I don't think they're pretending to like this book but it is overhyped
>>127250332>I don't think they're pretendingYes they are. It has a protagonist who isn't white.
>>127250355But it's one of those good "non-whites" which lets /co/ admonish other diversity-lead books.
>>127250077The Great 10 always had accusations of being Chinese stereotypes but I feel like just making Chinese bootlegs superheroes also feels insensitive.
>>127250077>Man, fuck the Chinese guy for being offended by Chinese stereotypes!Kill yourself. >>127250573>insensitiveTo say the least. Mother of Champions is some of the most pathetically tryhard shit.
>>127250573It was funny as fuck though considering China makes bootleg shit all the time to make themselves seem better also the way it was done with how their powers are similar but different and tying them to Chinese myth was incredibly creative
>>127250355I’m a white guy and I love the fuck out of this book, it had great well rounded characters, it blended DC and Chinese lore incredibly well and it was just a fun read
>>127250626>Mother of Champions is some of the most pathetically tryhard shit.Mother Of Champions is amazing you fucking pleb. Who else but Morrison and maybe Claremont would think about making a superhero about a pregnancy fetish?
>>127250705>expand her bellyYES.
>>127250529Indeed it is.
>>127250673I don't believe you. >>127250705MoC is the kind of character that would appear in a /co/ OC thread. What the actual fuck was Morrison thinking?
>>127250626Let's not pretend most chinese people would not eat up the great ten because that's exactly the kind of schlock chinese people love.>>127250644Gene Yang was just ripping off the great ten schtick because they're chinese bootlegs of the avengers.>August general in iron=captain america>ghost fox killer=black widow>immortal man in darkness=iron man>most accomplished physician=Doctor strange>Shaolin robot=the vision>seven deadly brothers=shangi chi>Celestial archer=Hawkeye with some spider-man>thundermind=thor>socialist red guardsmen=yellowjacket>mother of champions=scarlet witch I guessI won't stand for this bullshit Great ten slander.
>>127250898>Let's not pretend most chinese people would not eat up the great ten because that's exactly the kind of schlock chinese people love.If true(which I highly doubt), then it's little wonder they seem to be okay with being shat on by tyrants all the time, since they seem to lack basic self-respect. Oh wait, that's not how that works? Huh. Fuck you, tard breath.
>>127250783>What the actual fuck was Morrison thinking?How cool it would be if there was a superhero who need to be creampied to use their powers.
>>127248558They'd lose credit because Dr Omen and China were villains in the story.
>>127250948>which I highly doubtAs long as they're badass superheroes with flashy powers they will like it.
>>127250974That's all cultures though. Humans are retarded apes that just want keys jingled in their face.
>>127251016Which is why I think it's presumptuous of Yang to be so dismissive of the great ten.
>>127250962Kenan is cool and all but the more interesting story was whatever Kenan's dad was up to.
>>127251043Well if the keys have a slur written on them, that's obviously going to piss people off. And frankly, if shit like this doesn't piss you off, you're an idiot.
>>127251085What slurs are you talking about?
>>127248558this book was shitty anti-ccp propaganda.
>>127248828Unironically true and we need to do away with credit scores and income restriction laws.These are more often than not implemented by the state btw.
>>127251335Shitty in the sense they didn't go far enough.
>>127251386shitty in the sense that being anti-ccp is a meme pushed by pathetic americans scared of losing their place at the top of the global hierarchy. china is one of the last great nations in this terrible world.
>>127250077This was Tony Bedard's best work.
>>127248558I say leave Kenan alone. He's magnificent, executed well, and had a good run. All you're inviting to do OP is for shit writers to sully the good thing we had
>>127251813Being buried in obscurity doesn't save you from being shit on.
>>127251335>>127251386>>127251474The book isn't anti-CCP. In fact it was surprisingly very middle of the road, presenting both sides of the argument thus letting the reader come to their own conclusions
>>127251824Avery is still hanging around Flash book, and Peng was in Wonder Woman a while back. So they're not forgotten at least. Kenan is thankfully absent from Superman books for the time being, as those are in the gutter.I'd like for more JLC characters though from other Asian nations (Aqua-Man of North Korea opened the door for that)
>>127251335Most Chinese citizens are anti-ccp, anon
Kenan just met Connor Hawke in the Asian Special anthology.Who knows, Conner might join the JLC as their Green Arrow.Avery is in Justice League Incarnate.
>>127251842Anything that isn't pro-CCP control is anti-CCP. The JLC LEFT state control sure, they didn't join an open revolt, the CCP doesn't let people do their own thing without them just look at Hong Kong. And besides that's leaving off all the cartoonishly evil shit their getting up to now.
too bad Johns somehow made them part of the Great 20. like. HOW?
I liked that Bat-Man of China's Joker equivalent was Grass Mud Horse.
>>127251842Right because the only way Yang could make the Freedom fighters of China unsympathetic was to have them do something so dumb like use Starro to fight for democracy.
>>127252067It was probably something Yang mentioned he wanted to do and so Johns added it, then the book got cancelled and it never came to fruition
>>127250626>>127250898>>127250948>>127250077Enter the original Avengers of China. The Wonderful (and semi-cannibalistic) 108!
>>127250573The Great Ten are all directly based on Chinese mythology.
>>127253337They are all based on classic JLers with faint nods to Chinese mythology.
>>127251946If they had balls Green Arrow of JLC would be a Hong Kong protester
>>127253737I love pitching new JLC members. My idea was a Japanese Kamen Rider Blue Beetle. Bat-Man and him could possibly debate over the tense relations between China and Japan too
>>127248558They don't care because Black Panther made a billion and brought in more American dollars. That's why it's all hands on deck for Black Supermans.
>>127253863I pitched a Red Lantern Ugyhur
>>127253337>>127253593They're based on the avengers.
>>127248558Isn't he part of that Monkey King maxiseries?
>>127248558He was referenced as part of a story in the API special DC published this year. If he's not a regular part of the Monkey King book, he can still get his own 4-6 issue mini series
>>127254124Probably.>>127254677The bigger problem is that the Chinese goverment does NOT LIKE New superman.
>>127254677That's the dumping ground for backups and leftovers and new artist tryouts.
>>127254738>The bigger problem is that the Chinese goverment does NOT LIKE New supermanThat's not a problem at all.
It's funny because Americans have our own social credit system. Ever heard of FICO?
>>127254789It is if you're trying to IP farm that plays in China>>127254826That's a FINANCIAL credit system. This is as idiotic as confusing justice and social justice.
>>127254853>It is if you're trying to IP farm that plays in ChinaNew Super-man isn't for the mainland, it's for american Chinese.
>>127249990Not much of an accomplishment considering Val is a dogshit character. But Kenan was great just in his own.
>>127254878I think you underestimate exactly how much the chinese goverment dislikes new superman.
>>127255039I think you're overestimating how much that matters.
>>127255039Good. Let the West Taiwanese bugs seethe.
>>127255144It matters enough that they aren't making more new superman, but are giving Yang Monkey King instead.
ngl, China pandering and shilling must stophow much are you willing to bet all the arcane shilling is tencent bots doing their marketing?
