Man, Genndy Tartakovsky really does know how to make an animated man attractive. I mean
take Samurai Jack for example (the best example in my opinion
he has a great body (drawn and animated very well), a cute face, and absolutely charming character and personality traits (plus good morals)
he’s funny, he’s awkward, he’s kind, he’s respectful, he’s handsome - all of his traits make him (according to me at least) one of the hottest animated guys out there. I’ve been in love with him since I was little lol.
Then there’s Lance from Sym-Bionic Titan
(I’ll admit he was a bit much with his shirt off but) Again, drawn and animated well, interesting personality and character (tho a little broody), and, because of this, also very attractive.
Hell, even Anakin freaking Skywalker is mildy attractive in Genndy’s show Star Wars: Clone Wars (well, maybe not his face, but)
and I’ve never found Anakin attractive in anything else!
lol The point is that, from an animation + personality trait standpoint, Genndy does a damn fine job of making fine men.
I keep thinking about this: how much better would the Marvel cartoons now would be if Genndy Tartakovsky was in charge of Marvel Animation (or whatever position he could make a difference in). See, because while there are some issues with the movies and comics, the WORST side of Marvel during the last couple of years has been their animation. Out of five Marvel cartoons made during the last few years, only ONE of them was good….
….Aaanndd it was fucking cancelled for not sucking off the MCU hard enough.
Everything else: Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, Hulk: Agents of SMASH, and Guardians of the Galaxy have been fucking dreadful. Bland to outright shitty character design, terrible writing, asinine editing, just fucking awful.
Basically, all of this is laid at the feet of Man of Action. Now, if only we had someone who was a fan of Marvel, who grew up on the comics, who homage them several times.
Someone who actually knows how to direct action that is interesting and not hot fucking garbage.
A guy who’s actually WORKED with Marvel before.
^Yeah, Genndy’s team worked on that ending fight scene.
Basically, what I’m saying is that Gendy has more right to be the driving force behind Marvel animation than Man of Action does.
If I had Rick Sanchez’s reality-hopping Portal gun, I would waste the potential by only going to realities where my favourite cartoons weren’t cancelled against the creator’s wishes. In fact, I would go to a reality where it was illegal to cancel a cartoon against the creator’s wishes and just binge-watch the nonexistent seasons of my favourite discontinued cartoons.
