Alt-Right Author Skewered For Asking What Stan Lee Would Think of MCU

Controversial alt-right author Jack Posobiec has used social media to share his views in the past, but his most recent post about the status of the Marvel Cinematic Universe didn't get the kind of response he was probably hoping for.

Posobiec posted the statement "Imagine if Stan Lee saw what they've turned the MCU into..." to his Twitter account. While it isn't said outright, the tweet was widely seen as a commentary on Captain Marvel, which has become a target for online attacks for statements made by the film's star, Brie Larson.

However, the rest of Twitter quickly responded to the author, pointing out that Lee was keenly aware of the direction of the MCU, considering he actually made cameo appearances throughout the franchise. Some responses specifically cited Lee's roles in the films, while others focused on his role as a long-time advocate of diversity and inclusion within the Marvel Universe. Others simply took the time to make fun of Posobiec for his tweet.

Even comic book artists like Jamal Yaseem Igle and Gary Frank responded to the post, pointing out the hypocrisy of Posobiec trying to tie the recently deceased Lee to his controversial talking points.
