A while ago when the first Captain Marvel trailer was released, a lot of people were pretty mad.

Essentially, a group of idiots started berating Brie Larson and the film she starred in because, well, she wasn’t smiling nearly enough.

You know how women have to smile? Yeah she didn’t follow that rule.

A whole thing then started with people posting pictures of men in their comic book film trailers and posters obviously not smiling, and noting the hypocrisy in the statements from the morons making them.

With that, and taking the mick slightly, Gail Simone decided to tweet this…

Fair point, no?

Apparently not, since one genius decided to challenge her on that comment, saying that she clearly knew nothing about Punisher’s backstory…

Yes that’s right. Simone is of course a comic book writer who has actually written various Punisher stories.

Makes you think, doesn’t it?

To the guy’s credit, he then apologised profusely…

What world we live in.

If you’re going to get into an argument, do your research.
