^I have to admit, I never thought I'd see Asian Superman fighting Fu Manchu.

Is that actually Fu Manchu or an expy? I thought the original character was controlled by the author's estate still.

According to the Public Domain Superhero Wiki.

All of Fu Manchu's pre-1923 books are in the public domain as well as the Avon comic "The Mask of Dr. Fu Manchu" in the United States. All post-1923 works are copyrighted by Rohmer's estate and the name is trademarked by the same. Writers such as Alan Moore (League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen) have gotten around this by calling Dr. Fu Manchu by another name or not mentioning his name.


Basically, Books featuring the Fu Manchu character are in the public domain and can be published by anyone. But the character himself is still under Copyright. Similar to the situation Conan The Barbarian is currently in. You can publish and make money off the original text, but if you want to publish a comic or a new story featuring the character you're going to be facing a lawsuit.

Nope, I have found these names in regards to the character in Detective #1. Sen Yoi / Fui Onyui / Ching Lung
A CBR article was using the last name.

Also that generations poster just highlights the intentional (and badly failing) strategy of SJW-izing Marvel. All white men must go!

^to be fair, Marvel (and more specifically Nick Spencer) have said they're going to be downplaying those aspects in the future due to declining sales.

Having said that, the damage has been done. a lot of elements that have come from this Progressive push are just going to be stuck with the characters for the foreseeable future.

You have a rather odd definition of "failing."

Most of what I've seen has simply been adding new characters rather than changing old ones. And those new characters have generally been pretty popular, so we're hardly "stuck with" them.

The author of the graphic Novel 'Prince Of Peace' is making his book free to read for a limited time on his Imgur page. I highly recommend you check it out.

Basically, it's based on his experiences of how he went insane and thought he was actually Jesus Christ. With some obvious artistic licenses taken. Good stuff.

Ugh. It's so frustrating knowing he's capable of good art but has developed a style that allows him to be fantastically lazy.

Marvel Has Thoroughly screwed over the X-Men. The little hope we had for them is gone now.

Inhumans vs X-Men spoilers  SPOILER: Show
Between the Sentinels,"Emma/cyclops/magneto were right" and Inhumans saving the day, the final issue was enough to convince me this event was a complete waste of time.

The internet speculation predicted just about everything, from Emma getting tossed under a bus and turned to a villain again (a Shame given all the great writing Joss Whedon did on the characters psychology in the past) to the writers doing everything in their power to deflect blame away from the Inhumans and put it on the Mutants . . . I'm just exhausted.


Marvel, just get rid of the X-Men. If you're never going to give them a break, if you're just going to keep screwing them over at the expense of the fans to put the Inhumans on a pedestal, then just pull the trigger and be done with it.
