True but instead of looking at the bad ones look at all the cops that arnt killing people. We tend to focus on the negatives even if that's the minority. Think about all the black people that weren't shot that day instead of the one that was. Their are asshole cops but their are also good honest ones to.

What the actual f**k is this post? :-X

The whole point of all of this is that the organization is fundamentally flawed. Sure, there may be some "good cops" but if the organization doesn't do anything to actually stop the bad ones, and the "good" ones don't do anything to stop the bad ones, then the whole organization is f**ked and needs total reform. Shootings like these keep happening, and will keep happening, and it is absolutely f**king disgusting.

You're asking people to think about the "Black people that weren't shot that day" like that is going to fix anything. What are you saying? That they should just go about their business and be thankful that this time it was their father or mother or brother or sister or husband or wife or friend that got shot, rather than themselves? Ignoring a problem doesn't make the problem go away. And those people that died... they are dead. Their lives were taken from them. That isn't something to just look at lightly and brush off.

So nah, I'm not just going to ignore deep-rooted issues that are literally costing people their lives.

This isn't the place for that real-world discussion. The point is Alien and Marvel have always been political and provide social commentary, regardless of whether or not you saw it without it being pointed out to you.

The best thing to do here is to delete the last ~10 pages. Otherwise, this conversation will go in a circle.

What sort of new storylines would we like to see explored in Marvel's new Alien and Predator material?

Q
Maybe when people think about "good, old Marvel" Captain America fighting Hitler isn't the first thing that comes to their minds ?

That doesn't mean it didn't exist. Just like how the politics that were there in the movies these people watched as kids always existed, even if they didn't pick up on it.

Also, who is that Bucky guy is ? Marvel's version of Robin ?

Bucky, in his original inception, was a child soldier (gee, nothing political about that!) who is an ace sniper working alongside Cap during WWII. He eventually gets killed, and stays that way for decades, until the 2000s when Brubaker brought him back as The Winter Soldier to tell another incredibly political story.

Nothing wrong with Marvel being anti-Hitler, or anti-Nazi.  I think we can agree on that.

Just caught up to reading Hicks’s post.  Ok stepping off the political bandwagon.

Really looking forward to the first Marvel series one way of another.

Q
So are there any new rumors regarding Marvel's new Alien and Predator series??

Also, I'm wondering why Marvel are promoting only Aliens via their variant covers, and not Predator?

Well, the Aliens Omnibus is due out sooner than the Predator one. Could just be a marketing thing, with Predator variants coming at a later date closer to that Omnibus release.

Marvel does things with themes around a specific idea, Predator will probably get its own variant later on. It's also possible that with the Alien collection that the Alien variant covers will be presented in it and so you'd get those out first if the Alien collection will be coming out sooner.

What are the chances of characters from the films featuring prominently? Could we see stories starring Dutch, Harrigan, Ripley, Hicks or Newt?
