“Remember how Marvel fans got mad at Snyder fans for Peacemaker?”: DC Fans Call Out Hypocritical Marvel Fans for Claiming She-Hulk Debased the Hulk and Daredevil

Recently, MCU’s Phase Four series, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, has become the subject of a brutal online tug of war as fluctuating opinions clash about whether the show is Marvel-worthy or not. The series which has showcased one of Marvel’s comedic arcs has become a sore disappointment for the fandom. With the ever-present rivalry between Marvel and DC still waging, fans are at a loss about what to make of She-Hulk’s characterizations.

DC Fans Flame the She-Hulk Debate to a Heated Vortex

When The Suicide Squad character Peacemaker, portrayed by John Cena, received its solo run at HBO Max, fans were upset by the overly light-hearted tone of the otherwise sociopathic anti-hero. There were ensuing debates that advocated the portrayal of Peacemaker’s tone, as the plot somewhat stayed true to the comic character. Another faction of the DCEU had grown attached to the dark and grim portrayal of its heroes (due to Snyder’s contributions) and vehemently resisted.

With Marvel now going through the same existential crisis, the debate has escalated even further as the fans of DC and Marvel clash and overlap with their opinions about the recent change in the approach of the studios to their characters. Those among Marvel’s fanbase who had earlier contributed to criticizing Snyder’s fans for their opposition to the new take on the HBO Max series narrative are now facing a similar turn of fate with She-Hulk: Attorney At Law (in fact, the entirety of MCU’s Phase Four as a whole.)

The Disney+ series has been the subject of several discussions that ranged from the celebration of the arrival of Daredevil and Emil Blonsky to the disappointing nerfing of the Hulk. The show has garnered further online traction because of the divisive takes on Daredevil’s changed suit and due to the recent twerking scene in Episode 3 post-credits. As of now, the series has had only three released episodes to its name and there are already double the number of controversies surrounding its content.

The fans upset about the approach to the Phase Four series have been pushed to the point of a catalytic outburst after the unilaterally negative reception of not only She-Hulk but also Moon KnightMs. Marvel, and Hawkeye. The movies too have not been at par with the set standards of Marvel Studios, since the Endgame era, and the clamoring reached its height after the destructive reception of Thor: Love and Thunder. It is now up to the studio to reboot its entire outlook beginning with the Phase Four closing statement, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
