The Mary Sue’s Worst Moments in Female Fandom in 2014

On the upside, we got to snark a lot. On the downside... everything.

We try to see the positive in all situations around here at TMS, but occasionally, some things happen in fandom that we just have to call out. 2014 had a series of moments in which it didn't feel super-awesome to be a female fan of things like comics, cosplay, and video games, so let's take a look at the whole horrible list.

She-Hulk Co-Creator Stan Lee Reacts to David Goyer’s “Porn Star” Statements

Excelsior!

I know I was looking for a new female superhero, and the idea of an intelligent Hulk-type grabbed me. ...Never for an instant did I want her as a love interest for Hulk. Only a nut would even think of that. -- Stan Lee, speaking to The Washington Post's Comic Riffs. Stan Lee's reasons for creating She-Hulk (which we covered in our piece on David Goyer's comments yesterday) might not have been entirely as he says, but the problems with the screenwriter's statements stand. For one, Goyer's perfectly confident his words will be respected even if they reveal a broad ignorance of both the in-comics appearances of the character he's talking about and the known industry stories of their creation. For another, he's perfectly comfortable with at-a-glance assigning a female character to the "just there for the T&A" box, a trend we've seen over and over again with male movie reviewers and Black Widow. And further, his statements do nothing to shame these hypothetical sex-fantasy-crazed writers who created his hypothetical She-Hulk or hold them responsible for being a part of the problem of women's representation in genre fiction.

Man of Steel Sequel Writer David Goyer Calls Marvel’s She-Hulk “A Giant Green Porn Star,” Insults Geeks

Today in things that make us scream incoherently

Last night, a podcast called Scriptnotes interviewed a panel of screenwriters before a live audience. "The Summer Superhero Spectacular" panel included Andrea Berloff (The Legend of Conan), Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel). Podcast hosts John August and Craig Mazin asked the screenwriters a few questions on how they approached the genre of superheroes and mythical warriors. As expected, Goyer answered some questions but avoided giving away spoilers on his upcoming projects bringing the DC Comics Universe to live-action. But it's the way he spoke about a Marvel Comics hero which got our attention.
