The Legend Chuck Dixon Comes Out As Alpha MaleJon Del Arroz
If you missed the shameless attempt at attention comic book news yesterday, DC Comics writer Grant Morrison came out as “non-binary” — whatever that means.
Grant Morrison is one of DC’s late 2000s writers, known for crafting confusing, overly-complicated storylines which “reimagine” characters, much like his predecessor Alan Moore, but with far less talent than the Watchmen creator. He gained credibility with a British accent, as many of these “literary” writers do, and has dwindled from the public eye over the last decade as many readers found his stories to be tedious.
Comic fans responded to this announcement with cynicism, citing that he’s likely doing this to try to protect himself in DC’s current environment, where they are trying to force even more diversity both in their hiring practices and in their new comic initiative, Future State. The ultimate diverse state is making up a new gender, and so it follows Morrison is trying to get ahead of the curve and keep his job security.
But since DC Comics is making a move in their stunningness and bravery with such an announcement, I’m going to formally declare the Legend Chuck Dixon is the ultimate Alpha Male in comics.
Instead of just leeching further off of creations from 100 years ago, Dixon has pushed his own vision forward, going full-time in creating his own characters, crafting bold storylines with real heroes and intense action. He doesn’t try to deconstruct storytelling, but instead, he gives the people true adventure to root for.
He’s also a good looking guy:
The Legend was not approached for comment in the making of this post, as a true alpha male would never have to go out and state he’s an alpha. Others just know it.
As such, we must commend The Legend for being both stunning and brave, far much more so than the current crop of whining DC comic creators who don’t have as much talent in their whole bodies as Dixon does in one fingertip.
