@lcazt1996: Its not being pessemistic, its being REALISTIC. Those kind of marriages rarely, if ever work out. Im in my early 20s, and I had around 5 friends who got married to their high school girlfriends. All but one of them are divorced now, and the other one doesnt have the best relationship. I wouldnt be surprised if they get divorced soon too. Oh, and they all dated much longer than 2 months.

woah woah woah. I dont keep up with Marvel too much, but last I read Iceman and Kitty were together. That was as recent as Battle of Atom or whatever that was, and that really wasnt that long ago. I only heard about these guys together a few months ago. Marriage seems super fast.

Dude BotA was a year and a half ago and Kitty and Pete got together really soon after (like three? months after) so it has been a little over a year since they first became a thing. I totally approve of this. I loved the idea of them being together way back when and I love it now. Hardcore long distance relationship game right there.

a little over a year is a very short time for any relationship to develop into marriage in the real world. In terms of comic relationships its a CRAZY short amount of time.

Exactly, a year in comics is a few months in real time. Add to that the fact that the majority of the time was spent apart with him in space and the whole thing seems rushed and stupid. They should have just had them get drunk and do it in Vegas, that would make it slightly more realistic.

Marvel Comics: Where being a hero is no longer about the quality of your character but rather your gender, sexual orientation, race, or relationship status.

My friend's parents got married when they were 17 and had known each other for a grand total of two months.

They're still married to this day, over 20 years later.

Its not about the time, its about who you spend it with.

Well congrats to your friends parents. That is astronomically rare though. Its rare nowadays to stay married that long (especially in a first marriage), it is even rarer for teenagers who get married to actually stay together, it is freaking needle in a field of hay rare for a couple to stay together after getting married after 2 months. It obviously happens very VERY rarely, but that doesnt mean its realistic.

No genre in the history of film has ever died except the silent film (not even a real genre, just a description of the audio), the fact that they still make westerns despite very few people being interested should tell you the CBM (far more attractive in this day and age) is in a safer place than any other genre except maybe horror and rom-com.

True, but I never said superhero movies were going to die out, just that the bubble would pop. That we wouldnt be seeing them anywhere near as much as we are now. Westerns is actually a very good comparison. They were absolutely everywhere over few years, and then after the market had enough of them they died out. Now we see maybe one or two big westerns every like 4 years.

@eyedcyou: I addressed that Guardians of the Galaxy comparison. You cant really compare the 2. Marvel films had such an amazingly good reputation among movie goers at the time Guardians came out, it really wasnt as risky as some people like to think it was. Sure it was risky compared to anything else they had done before, but its nothing compared to the unknown valiant.

This is it. This is where the superhero movie bubble officially pops. We will come back here in 10 years and reminisce about the golden age of superhero movies and its abrupt end. These are properties that essentially no one has heard of outside of hardcore comic fans, and even then most comic fans dont read them Valiant comics account for less than 1% of all comic sales. I dont want to sound totally pessimistic, but unless they have absolutely amazing trailers, A list actors, and crazy good reviews the movies will likely flop. Even if they perform decently enough, they will at MAX reach Kick Ass box office level. These are not movies that will make too much more than 100 million at most.

Marvel and DC benefit from brand recognition. Even characters not many have heard of like the Guardians of the Galaxy did well because of that Marvel logo up front. Even the most hardcore fans should be able to admit that we are probably seeing too many superhero movies coming out in such a short amount of time over the next few years. Between DC/WB, Marvel, Foxs XMen and FF franchises, and Sonys Spider movies (because yes even though Spider-Man will be set in the MCU the solo films will still be made by Sony). Now we have to add another Sony franchise on top of that with Valiant. This is over-saturation if Ive ever seen it.

@tensor: I think the comic is actually coming out before the movie as Digital Firsts, which will then be collected here. This will give some backstory on the world before the movie is released.

John Romita Jr and Jason Fabok both draw killer Justice Leagues, JR Jr should be the next artist on Justice League after Fabok.

Oh my lord I AGREE with you on something!?!? The world must be ending!
