    Indeed it's a shame people call out intellectual dishonestly in the Transformers community.

    I just have to say I like Windblade in the Cyberverse cartoon so far. In short, it is possible to make her a character I would root for.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this. She's good in the new cartoon. It's funny what some decent writing does for a character.

    I can't speak for misfire19d, but I like that they're giving her a semblance of a personality in the new cartoon. That definitely helps.

    Yet more crap to divide the fandom. Its a shame.

    If you hate these changes, your a homophobic, sexist racist. But if you likre the changes you a progressive. Way to go Hasbro and IDW. Sigh.

    I thought these were supposedly for children.

    In all fairness, most of the really negative posts have been effectively: "Why is a fat girl in Jem's band?" and "Comics today are all sucktastic "progressive" crap." That's setting the tone really low, really fast.

    Excuse you Captain Attention?
    Please explain to me the “intellectual dishonesty“ in reminding you amidst your comic bashing tirade that you are indeed in a message board about a toy line that was originally conceptualized and written by a comic book company?

    Because it's not relevant? It's a non-sequitur? Transformers being created by a comic company in the 80s doesn't make comics in 2018 great? I know this is a hard concept for you to understand.

    The concept you don’t seem to understand is that you’re contradicting yourself. You’re bashing one medium while supporting another medium that was wholeheartedly created by the medium you were originally bashing.
    But I get it. Some people just love to hear themselves, or in your case, read themselves.

    Plus by the way, you won. The comic is over. The stick can come out now.

    Comics today =/= all comics of all times. It's really that simple. My avatar is a comic book character. I never said all comics from all times are bad. I'm sorry that you - timeless godman -cannot conceive of our linear existence.

    Can you point out a post in this thread that says women are bad? I'm legit interested in seeing that.

    NBH isn't saying women are bad. At most, he's pointing out the silly reasons these types of books are being done. These corporations are doing this because they want to make sure they are able to retain their customer base. This isn't about getting new readers into the comics. That's not happening. This entire thing is about customer retention. All of this silliness is marketing and advertising nonsense. They don't actually care about your progressive ideals.
