So what make Captain Marvel so unlikable to normal non-SJW men? Let us recap.
- She is a Mary Sue who never struggled on her way to her super-powers, unlike say Thor, Ironman or Luke Skywalker. The fellas can relate really well to stories with struggle on their way to mastery. Not happening here; a missed opportunity.
- She has absolute moral authority, justified by how she was mistreated in the past. Perhaps fellas would be glad to gain such authority after being mistreated and mastering their domain, but they know it isn’t coming
- Notwithstanding claims to the otherwise, she seems to be doing her stuff for herself, not for a greater cause as with Sarah Conner or Princess Leia. Why is this? They make her new found superpowers as means to exract revenge on those that verbally tormented her in the past. Perhaps the movie makers thought this was about righteousness, but it came across as petty. Who wants a petty superhero, especially a woman. Which side of the frenemy coin will I be exposed to today?
- She was over the top taunted in the past by white guys. Most white guys don’t do this. But all white guys are blamed. The average fella is used to being blamed. They get on with their lives. Not a biggie, but one more piece to the puzzle.
- Captain Marvel becomes a superhero, not a woman. Of course, they have “sensitive” scenes after she gains her powers, but they seem contrived (the wooden acting doesn’t help). Men may expect/tolerate women to step up in a pinch, but they want them to go back to being women when done. Princess Leia might be a good example.
- Captain Marvel is the most powerful of the super-heros. She doesn’t need anyone. Deep down men understand that this is BS. Women, individually and as a whole will need men (striving, doing the dirty jobs, paying for the kids, etc.) We know this and feminist types know this, even if they pretend to believe otherwise. I am thinking that men resent the fact that all that they do is being effectively described as useless. Probably most fel this, but cannot articulate it.
