If you are seeing this, you have probably read my previous posts on Disney movies(Perspectives of Star Wars doesn’t count). If you haven’t, you can go and read those right now. If you have, you might notice that I didn’t mention anything about Marvel comics/movies. I will do that right now, as well as some more on the classics.
Let’s start with Marvel. In Iron Man, Tony Stark is a genius. But what does he use that genius for? Bombs!!! I repeat, bombs! Nothing, literally nothing good comes out of bombs. When he finally makes his new alloy, S.K.I.N, into a glider instead of a bomb, its not even because he realized where he went wrong, but because a bunch of hippies started marching down his street!!! Like his father said in a certain comic, Stark just chases after whatever fast car or pretty face strikes his fancy!!! Even as Iron Man, he is still selfish and unheroic, fighting only villains who threaten him and his company. Plus, he got demoted as leader of the Avengers because of some Jack Kirby super soldier who’s first appearance was as an ice cube!!! Oh, and by the way, how come they call Captain America the first Avenger even though he didn’t join until Avengers #4?
Now the classics. I already stated my opinions on The Lion King in a previous post, but there are still some things that I need to let out. For example, in the quarrel between Mufasa and Skaar, we learn that Skaar’s main strength is his intelligence, whereas Mufasa is stronger. However, when Skaar takes over, everyone starves. This shows that intelligence is not a good quality, and that is the message Disney spread to its audience.
