ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN Hater Outed
Discover the truth behind the Marvel TV News website and one boy's vendetta against Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man animated series.
CBM Insert: There are some obsessed whack-jobs out there that have silly agendas, but this one takes the cake! Due to the revelation of this article (Good work BleedingCool.com), the user "Strugler" has lost his account with ComicBookMovie.com. We apologize to Marvel for allowing this unethical person to use our site for his selfish purposes. It is truly sad to see how much effort this guy put into his personal vendetta. Get some help Nabil.
Bleeding Cool has posted an interesting article about the site owner of Marvel TV News and how things might not be exactly what they seem.
Ultimate Spider-Man is a successful show on Disney XD, with decent ratings, audience reaction and the kind of thing a broadcaster likes to hear. It was recently renewed for a second season.
For some, however, it’s not enough. Specifically, it’s not the Spectacular Spider-Man animation show that preceded it, which had a very different style, and an older demographic.
And there is one internet user called Nabil (last name removed) who seems to have started a one man covert war against the show and Marvel Animation.
Since Ultimate Spider-Man began running, every Sunday he’s tweeted to Joe Quesada about how so many fans hate the show and wanted Spectacular back.
It was enough for Joe to take the bait. He told Nabil that if the show wasn’t to his liking, then he should just stop watching and that the production team were already working on season 2. Nabil agreed.
Because, despite denials, Nabil appears to have created the site Marvel TV News which runs stories about Marvel animation and games, but mostly about how awful the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon is, and how everyone hates it. It is registered to a “Nabil Mjati” in Morocco. So, you know. That’s him.
And then he posted the news that the Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes would be cancelled and replaced with the cartoon Avengers Assemble. He also quioted from a press release, purported to be “print only”, saying “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes won’t be renewed for the 3rd Season. Marvel Animation will present their newly developed series Marvel’s Avengers Assemble in 2013.”
Which was picked up verbatim by sites all across the internet, some like Comic Book Movie, Oh No They Didn’t, CBR, Critiques For Geeks, giving credit to Marvel TV News, and others like iFanboy, ScreenRant, Geek Tyrant, Super Hero Hype, and Comic Vine.
Only problem was that the quote was made up. There was no official press release. It was a lie that few chose to question.
