Rob Liefeld ‘s Gay Wolverine and Gay Cyclops are GHEY

I’m not going to lie – I hate Rob Liefeld especially after he ranted on about not being homophobic because Shatterstar (a lame sword-swinging x-man) couldn’t be gay because he’s a “Spartan and Spartans weren’t gay”. Yeah… right.

Anyway, I came across this page today when I gearing up for my next “Rob Liefeld is a Hack” post:

You know what my problem is with this scene – it’s ok to be a gay (x-)men who is a  cross-dressing cocksuckers but it’s not ok for them to be warriors and have loving homosexual relationships.

Again Mr. Liefeld – fuck you.

Rob Liefeld’s Ultimates! No, I Mean Maximums!

Rob Liefeld’s ability to steal great comic ideas and created terrible bastards never ceases to bring me pure and utter joy. Whether it is the Ultimates (as seen above), Supergirl,  Captain American, Hulk, Justice League, or the Authority – this hack has them all.

Honestly his characters always seem like bad forum avatars – he thought Superman was cool so he created his own lifeless version called Supreme and thought no one would ever tell the difference *side eye*.

I guess I’m just really disappointed after 25 years in the comic industry he still try to pass off recycled ideas as original thought. To be fair, I don’t have a problem with homages at all but there comes a point when it isn’t a homage – it’s a ripoff.

Urgh I still can’t believe they are making a move out of his Avengers/JLA/X-Men/Teen Titans rip-offs. If only someone would give him the “shaft”.

Obama – Liefeld’s Shaft

Ok, I get it Liefeld. You think Barack Obama is a badass and will fuck a motherfucker’s shit up but did you have to have him posing next to a character who is a horseman of apocalypses? Is this how you feel about our president? Sure, people are complaining he’s not doing enough fast enough but you think he wakes up in the morning, smacks Michele’s ass out of bed, and grabs the biggest gun he can find?

What next? He’ll have an endless number of pouches that don’t do anything? Or maybe he’ll hunt down Shatterstar to make your “he’s a warrior… and not a gay one.” comment true.

You think making Shatterstar gay is the worse thing that could ever be done in comics but you think it is ok to turn an intelligent, black role model (forget that he is president) into a gun-toting, psycho killer befriending, badass is in good taste?

Can’t wait to someday undo this. Seems totally contrived.

No truer words could have been spoken about all of your work.

Youngblood # 9 – Obama gets the Liefeld Treatment

In Youngblood #9, Rob Liefeld tries to capitalize on the success’s of the United State’s current president, Barack Obama. There are no explanation why Liefeld thought it was a good idea to cast one of the smartest American presidents as a badass action star but he did. While I  have not read the comic yet, the previews reeks of blaxploitation and disrespect to Black Americans everywhere. While I disagree with capitalizing on this historical event, I will at least give Marvel and DC credit for either elevating him to “Superman” status or grounding him firmly in their reality. Liefeld has simply cast Obama in the role of “black badass”. “Barry” (hopefully) never sold drugs out of his house or held a glock to someone’s mouth. You know what makes this even more insulting? Rob Liefeld probably thinks what he has done is “cool” and kids will love it. Why am I even surprised? This is a guy who draws guns on guns for Christ sake! I’m just waiting for Obama to reveal his tatts and numerous pouches before being completely covered in blood.

Whatever Liefeld’s intentions, I find this representation of a positive Black role model degrading and sort of racist. The only thing that would be worse is if Liefeld later reveals Obama was in fact Osama in disguise (If you happen to read this and get “inspired”, Robbie, you better have my money waiting for me).

The one compliment I will give Liefeld is he finally learned how to draw feet. I’m just waiting on shoes now.
