It's nostalgia culture. They want to go back to their childhoods. They also go "durr only 90s kids remember VHS tapes/Dragon Tales hurr durr"

  1. Comic books are written for adults now. They're a lot more mature than the Stan Lee days. The comic book fans grew up, and are the ones buying the comics, not the children. The days of spinner racks in a 7-11 with 25 cent comics are over. Superheros are popular because they are our modern day mythology. Would you call the ancient Greeks infantile for reading the Iliad and the Odyssey? Superhero comics are just the modern day version of that.
  2. There's a difference between normies (which are the majority) and comic book fans (which are a tiny minority). Most people going ape-shit over Superhero movies are normies that have never read a comic book in their life. A lot of comic book fans are not satisfied with the superhero movies. They go to see a superhero film and either like or dislike it, and that's it. Normies are the ones making reaction videos. Go to Comic Con San Diego, and count the number of vendors/panels selling/talking about comics compared to ones that are not about comics. You'll find the people going there just for comics is a tiny minority.
  3. That guy crying in the Star Wars video is just acting. He was trying to make a viral video and it worked. I agree with PJW that there is too much infantilization going on, but most comic book fans are responsible adults that have jobs and use some of their disposable income to enjoy a hobby they have. The people going crazy for superheros are not the ones reading comic books.

I don't have a problem with adults liking comic book movies. I have a problem with the flat plots, repetitive themes, and over the top CGI battles that take up 45 minutes. Honestly, I've simply lost interest as Hollywood always caters to the lowest common denominator. Who needs compelling story telling when we've got 'splosions!?

Nothing wrong with nostalgia in small quantities

sometimes it feels like Paul just needs to upload something and is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. alan moore is a commie fag im not gonna listen to anything that fucking fat infantile dork says in relation to anything. people can like shit paul it doesnt make them children acting like a child does that and its funny his reasoning i can like joker "because i have deemed it as different therefore good" you blame consumerism as the cause when it is clearly a symptom i agree with most of what he says it just seems discombobulated and unrelated most of the time

it's really a shame that 30 year olds act like they are 14 still!!! They have the mentality of pre-teens!!!

I don't claim to be immune from some of these symptoms. Certainly there's too many escape valves and not enough life lines in today's society. But I would never want to publish my syndrome online and I am mindful of it. I don't want this crap in my life.
