I never thought this was about who got the "credit" or CBN versus NMB or whatever blog. It was about bringing back Richard Rider after 6 damn years.
I said it many times. CBN did well with speaking their mind and taking that hit from Marvel to voice their support for Rider. I applaud them for that and did so at the time.
With this new attitude, I'm not so sure it was even about that for them though.
When Rider has a new series and is back and CBN calls to boycott it, they jeopardize the future of the character we fought so hard to see get revived.
The hook for this series is "Richard Rider returns" and if that doesn't sell, we may be screwed.
Like I said, all things considered you undo what good you did by setting this series up for failure before we even read a page.
Iím gonna just defer on the Quasar stuff. As if what happened with Sam compares at all to Phyla-Vell or Quasar. Phyla never even got a series. I love quasar and fans did great supporting him, but thatís delusional, especially where the character is right now. Again, insults Nova fansÖtrue colors come out.
: Quote from CBN "If you think Rich would
: be back in ANY form without CBN's efforts,
: you're wrong. While NMB was busy
: cheerleading and actively keeping Rich
: "dead," CBN was keeping Rich in
: Marvel's face and advocating/agitating so
: others would take hope and follow suit. It
: worked. Rich is back in some form."
: I read this today and I think it just shows
: how far gone CBN have lost it. They don't
: choose to recongize or acknowledge that NMB,
: NPP, Bring Back Richard Rider and other Nova
: pro active fan groups, including my own
: Team619/Nova619 initiatives have done
: nothing BUT ensure Rich Rider remains in the
: public eye, encouraging fans to keep the
: flame burning - do creative projects and
: done their best to get Rich back one way or
: another - be it in a solo series or with the
: new kid.
: The Nova fan base is more than able to
: decide for itself whether folks choose to
: support the new run or not, it doesn't need
: preechers to tell us what we need to think
: and do. I'm more than happy to be a
: cheerleader for the new series - I've waited
: too long to see Rich back in action and I'M
: HAPPY TO SPEND MY MONEY, from MY PAY CHECK
: -AS I CHOOSE! Anyway far as I'm concerned
: we're past this now - if CBN want to carry
: on regardless - let them. This will be the
: last post in this forum thread that'll
: mention them and I request that everyone
: here now draws a line. NMB and NPP have
: actively supported and covered Nova since
: 1998 and proud to do so. It might be a road
: that may have a few bumps and curves ahead
: for the new run - but I think at last it
: will be a good time for many to see what's
: coming and I'm sure we'll all have plenty to
: say about it! Forward...
