“Hi there. I’d like to point something out to you that you have very, very wrong, and that’s this:
Electro was not a mentally stable white man, nor was he made unstable simply because he was black.
Max Dillon has always been a very unstable and violent man, prone to temper tantrums and fits of rage. He’s also had a very rough and abusive past, from friends, family, and authority, as seen here.”
lmao, a violent and and self-centered white dude who thinks that because he had a shit personality and no one liked him, he deserves to take revenge on the world??? who, by the way, did have a sheltered youth [x] but was never abused??? come on, i had a shit personality and no one liked me, that didn’t make me violent and obsessive. white men are socialized to think they deserve the world, then turn violent when they don’t magically get it. that is not mental illness.
and you can’t compare 616!electro’s ””’disorder””’, if you want to call it that, which is basically the same excuse they use whenever a white dude commits an act of violence or terrorism; to what they did to tasm!electro. one was an act of racism, ableism and specially anti-blackness, the other is a very realistic portrayal of your average white dude.
>only problematic because he’s black despite the original point being that he wasn’t like this as a white man
>ignoring the clear emotional abuse the man suffered
>average white dude
It’s funny how you mention racism…
lmao, it’s problematic because tasm!max is clearly meant to be read as schizophrenic, while 616 or 1610! max are angry narcissists with an endless hunger for power. if you read the original post at all, you’ll understand why making a black man schizophrenic and then showing him as a villain and institutionalizing him is racist.
emotional abuse doesn’t justify shit. being sheltered doesn’t equate being abused; having no friends because your personality sucks doesn’t equate being abused; a girlfriend dumping your ass because you are a loser doesn’t equate being abused; and even if they did, THAT DOESN’T JUSTIFY SHIT. ABUSE VICTIMS DON’T MAGICALLY GROW UP INTO ABUSERS. THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO GET FORGIVENESS FOR BEING ABUSED ARE WHITE MEN. ABUSE DOESN’T JUSTIFY SHIT.
funny how you can’t be racist against white people…
"funny how you can’t be racist against white people…”
Oh, you’re one of those. Racists who think they get a free pass because they hate the right color of skin.
That being said, no one said it was an excuse. Holy jeez, that is literally you entire contention? That an accurate depiction of Electro is racist because he’s black?
And yes, that IS an accurate depiction of Electro. Or did you just overlook all that actual comic evidence I handed you in favor of looking on a wiki? Just in case, here it is again.
Yeah, seeing the faces, hearing what they told you again, that’s not a healthy state of mind. Max is mentally unwell, no matter what his skin color is. Furthermore, “not having friends because your personality sucks”? Kid had a nervous stutter and crippling shyness on top of his mother rarely, if ever, letting him interact with other children, THEN telling him he’d never make anything of himself due to personality disorders she made damn sure he had when he reached adulthood.
Again, you are seeing only what you want to see here. It’s amusing how badly you so want this to fit your agenda.
I mean, it’s not like Jamie Foxx made suggestions or had input on how the character should be himself or anything… oh wait.
Cripes, next you’ll call the fire hose racist too…
