MARVEL Comics Fires 'Darth Vader' Writer Over Political Tweets, Harassed Over LGBT Characters

MARVEL Comics Fires ‘Darth Vader’ Writer Over Political Tweets, Harassed Over LGBT Characters

A writer for Marvel’s “Darth Vader” comic claims that the company fired him over a series of “vulgar tweets” he made in the wake of the vote to make Brett Kavanaugh a U.S. Supreme Court justice and claims he has suffered years of harassment by fans for including gay characters into the comic series. 

Chuck Wendig says that a Marvel editor fired him from the “Shadow of Vader” series “because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring.

After Kavanaugh’s controversial confirmation for the U.S. Supreme Court, Wendig called out Republican senators such as Mitch McConnell on social media and likened Kavanaigh’s confirmation to Game of Thrones:

“Winter is coming you callous f—necks, you prolapsed a—holes,” he wrote. “You vengeful petty horrors.”

”“It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part,” Wendig tweeted Friday. “Basically, because I was not civil.”

“It does set a troubling precedent . . . of folks fired because they riled up the wasp’s nest of asterisk-gate,” Wendig wrote. “And it seems odd to be mad that I’m mad at politics when — well look around.”

“Vote in November like your life depended on it, because it just might,” Wendig wrote.

Wendig also said that he had been repeatedly harassed online  after he inserted LGBT characters into his “Star Wars: Aftermath” series.

 “(It was) harassment that has gone on for years, harassment that has required me to contact local police and warn them of SWATing attempts, harassment across all corners of the Internet,” he wrote. “Some of it was bot stuff, obviously, or sock puppets, but some of it was pretty creepy, and very personal. I didn’t call a lot of it out or even highlight, but it was there, a sort of . . . constant background noise.

White House OFFICIALLY Responds To Death Star Petition and Its HYSTERICAL!

Death Star United States

Now that petitions have become all but worthless since everyone starts one for anything.  The White House issued a quite hysterical official response about the United States building a “Death Star”after it  topped the required 25,000 signatures.

This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For

By Paul Shawcross

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

  • The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
  • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

However, look carefully (here’s how) and you’ll notice something already floating in the sky — that’s no Moon, it’s a Space Station! Yes, we already have a giant, football field-sized International Space Station in orbit around the Earth that’s helping us learn how humans can live and thrive in space for long durations. The Space Station has six astronauts — American, Russian, and Canadian — living in it right now, conducting research, learning how to live and work in space over long periods of time, routinely welcoming visiting spacecraft and repairing onboard garbage mashers, etc. We’ve also got two robot science labs — one wielding a laser — roving around Mars, looking at whether life ever existed on the Red Planet.

Keep in mind, space is no longer just government-only. Private American companies, through NASA’s Commercial Crew and Cargo Program Office (C3PO), are ferrying cargo — and soon, crew — to space for NASA, and are pursuing human missions to the Moon this decade.

Even though the United States doesn’t have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we’ve got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we’re building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun. We are discovering hundreds of new planets in other star systems and building a much more powerful successor to the Hubble Space Telescope that will see back to the early days of the universe.

We don’t have a Death Star, but we do have floating robot assistants on the Space Station, a President who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is supporting research on building Luke’s arm, floating droids, and quadruped walkers.

We are living in the future! Enjoy it. Or better yet, help build it by pursuing a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field. The President has held the first-ever White House science fairs and Astronomy Night on the South Lawn because he knows these domains are critical to our country’s future, and to ensuring the United States continues leading the world in doing big things.

If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star’s power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Of course the Tea Party is going insane because the Second Amendment says they have a right to a Death Star. *snort*

Star Wars Game To Introduce Gay Characters


If you’re an avid gaymer, then this little piece of news that you want to here. Following in the footsteps of-games like Skyrim and Dragon Age, Bioware’s DLC to Star Wars: The Old Republic titled The Rise of the Hutt Cartel will feature same gender romance (SGR) which is geek talk for gay characters. Unfortuntely for now these will be non playable characters but developers are still hopeful that with time this will change.

Jeff Hickman, executive producer to game development explains why the delay:

“I realize that we promised SGR (same gender romance) to you guys and that many of you believed that this would be with a companion character.

Unfortunately, this will take a lot more work than we realized at the time and it (like some other pieces of content we talked about earlier in the year) has been delayed as we focused on the changes required to take the game Free-to-Play.

As we have said in the past, allowing same gender romance is something we are very supportive of.”

So fellow gaymers, are you looking forward to this upcoming feature or do you want more?

FRC Hate Group Head and MSNBC Pundit Tony Perkins Enraged That Star Wars Has Gone “Gay”

Family Research Council hate group President Tony Perkins, who is a hired by political pundit by MSNBC and CNN to discuss the GOP primary and the 2012 election is all hell bent out of shape that the new Star Wars video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic features same sex relationships.

“In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists! Hello, I’m Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. In a galaxy not so far far away, Star Wars gamers have already gone to the dark side. The new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has added a special feature: gay relationships. Bioware, the company that developed the game, said it’s launching a same-sex romance component to satisfy some complaints.

“That surprised a lot of gamers, since Bioware had made it clear in 2009 that ‘gay’ and ‘lesbian’ don’t exist in the Star Wars universe. Since the announcement, homosexuals have been celebrating the news, but parents sure aren’t. On the game’s website, there are more than 300 pages of comments–a lot of them expressing anger that their kids will be exposed to this Star Warped way of thinking. You can join them by logging on and speaking up. It’s time to show companies who the Force is really with!”Tony Perkins, speaking on Family Research Council Radio.  (All HATE, All the time)

Princess Tiny Meat Lea Perkins is probably actually upset that Emperor Palpatine is the bad guy.

But really day after day we get see his hateful missives. Shouldn’t we, or at least or big org’s that are there suppossedly to fight for us *cough* GLAAD, HRC, NGLTF *cough* be sending these disgusting  daily rants of Princess  Tony’s to the “powers that be” at MSNBC and CNN and keep asking them just why they continue to pay this man to come on their networks and provide commentary while providing him a platform to spew hate?

 But that would mean missing The Sundance Film Festival.  *cough* GLAAD *cough*
