Yesterday, right around the same time he was calling DC Comic fans virgins for knowing who Martian Manhunter is, David Goyer made equally ignorant comments about Marvel’s She-Hulk. If you didn’t see what he said, this is the stupidity that spewed from his mouth:
“I have a theory about She-Hulk. Which was created by a man, right? And at the time in particular I think 95% of comic book readers were men and certainly almost all of the comic book writers were men. So the Hulk was this classic male power fantasy. Itâ€™s like, most of the people reading comic books were these people like me who were just these little kids getting the sh*t kicked out of them every dayâ€¦ And so then they created She-Huk, right? Who was still smart… I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could f*ck if you were Hulk, you know what Iâ€™m saying? … She-Hulk was the extension of the male power fantasy. So itâ€™s like if Iâ€™m going to be this geek who becomes the Hulk then letâ€™s create a giant green porn star that only the Hulk could f*ck.”
Obviously this bit of genius spread quickly around the internet, and people were quick to call him out on how dumb the comments were.
But what about one of She-Hulk’s creators? The Washington Post checked in with Stan Lee, who co-created She-Hulk in 1980, and he had this to say:
â€œNever for an instant did I want her as a love interest for Hulk. Only a nut would even think of that.â€
When you have Stan Lee calling you a nut for your theories about She-Hulk, maybe you should just stop.
