Not What Marvel Had In Mind

Marvel released the above cover image in hopes of teasing one of their upcoming projects. Nothing was said about who was working on it or what it truly was.

This led to somebody (and it was primarily ONE somebody, as JK Parkin notes) decided to turn it into a smear campaign against Valerie D'Orazio. The appearance of Cloak & Dagger led people to say that the Cloak & Dagger mini might be scuttled and then to say that this morphed out of that project. Then someone pretending to be Emily Warren (but certainly not her) said that Valerie got her and Christina Strain fired.

Meanwhile, Christina tweeted to agree with one bit comment from the thread: "As I said, you can tell a lot from a person by their fans. Draw whatever conclusions from that you may."

So, a teaser image helps lead to accusations of a new female writer with a controversial blogging history getting two other females fired from Marvel. I'm thinking they wish they included just a touch more detail with that release.


  1. I don't care for Val, but what happened here is just not right.

    It goes to show that one person on the internet can create chaos with but one simple blog post.

  2. Well, I think it goes without saying that anything that involves someone faking multiple identities and lying is "just not right". :)


It is preferred that you sign some sort of name to your posts, rather than remain completely anonymous. Even if it is just an internet nickname/alias, it makes it easier to get to know the people that post here. I hope you all will give it some consideration. Thank you.
