I’m no fan of NINO. I gave him a chance, didn’t like him. Didn’t like the story. Never identified with him as teen character (even though I’ve always loved teen books). He’s dead to me. The fact the story was a directionless mess that saw 3 writers in 10 issues, made me madder they killed off Rich without even a good story in mind.
But honestly, the mantra to “Bring Back Rich Rider” really didn’t need to have anything to do with NINO. The call had everything to do with Rich Rider, a great fucking character. You don’t need to hate NINO to want Rich back. They don’t need to go together. We could all have both, and enjoy marvel comics together. But marvel just won’t budge. They want to see us Rider fans lost forever I guess. Somewhere along the line, they decided our business was just not worth it, and they could treat us like dirt. I wish things were different. Like I said, I miss marvel.
I’m pretty bummed about NINO officially being an Avenger. Rich never got that. I’m partially glad it’s not on a real roster…this roster seems like all the characters they’ve been trying to shove down our throats. Marvel really has a shitty slate for 2015. PC crap run amuk.
I’m gonna take a break from blogs/ posts for a while. I just need to cool down a bit from this talk. Anyways, I’m not going anywhere so keep the faith. As always, Long Live Rich Rider. See ya’ round.
