This post will be edited later with a more in-depth discussion and/or a follow-up post may be added later on this topic since there’s a lot of meta-abstract-ideas to discuss possibly.
I’ve been studying some trends going on with Marvel Comics and mass media in general on and off a few years, and how it all relates somewhat to underlying philosophies, culture, and religion…. some of the stuff below is just theories, oddball out-there ideas, and “conspiracy theories” type of crazy talk, but some of it might have some relevance and importance on a meta-level.
It seems to me that Marvel Comics, and mass media in general is starting to move away it’s somewhat existential or ‘Gnostic’ Memes and themes that grew out of cultural revolutions such as those back in the 1960s-1970s and 1990s and in to something opposite of that, which is bit more of a ufo-cultish indoctrination type of thing on some levels. The focus seems to be moving from the positive ideal that YOU, as an individual, have the power within you to take actions, and change your situation in life to a much more negative, depressive and coercive ideal that You, the individual, are ‘stuck’ with what life throws at you so you have to “deal with it” as best you can and that you have to ‘roll with the punches’ and ‘do what you can to just survive’ instead of being empowered to make change from an internal source.

This in part has to do with the move to partner with Disney more (Agents of Shield is on ABC, which is partnered with Disney, etc.) and in part with the copyright issue of the X-men being purchased by Fox several years back…
Marvel sold their popular X-men copyright to Fox so Fox could do some comics and movies, but later Marvel decided to make their own movies and Marvel Cinematic Universe thing by doing their own movies and tying them all together with the Infinity Gem backstory… that back story is very gnosticy in some ways, but also anti-gnosticy in others…
HERE I NEED TO INSERT BIG EXPLANATION OF GNOSTICISM AND WILL EDIT THIS LATER WITH MORE INFO… , and the idea of mutants with powers from within themselves, like the gnostics/occultists/wizards/magicians, etc. vs the idea of ufo cultists – powers from outside of yourself controlling your destiny, etc.
Now, for all you conspiracy theorists out there, was this massive pop-culture change planned, and does it have anything to do with the recent moves by worldwide governments to start implementing more and more military type oversight of everything everywhere as we move down the slippery slope towards external rule as slaves to the military state?… We have more eyes in the skies (cameras everywhere on cell phones, in every corner of every mall, casino, and downtown, on police vehicles and people, etc.) big military installations tracking online stuff, etc. Did Fox or Disney, or a combination of the two… Who, what, where when yadda, yadda, yadda, and rumbleberry blue too…
Jewish Superman Origins…etc.
more will be added here later. Sorry for the lack of time to write this all up right here/now… book mark and come back in a few days/months and you might be surprised by what you find here.
Been sick the last 2 days. Stomach bug has me and most of the rest of my family down at the moment. Not pretty. Lowered food intake a lot so that I don’t puke, etc. Thinking it might be time to use this as the ‘starting point’ of going more paleo than I have in the past since the system is ‘cleaned out’ now. Going to be difficult with holidays coming up, but something I need to probably do.
