Just got into Arrow...the people that do Agents of SHIELD need to take note.

Whoever makes Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D needs to take notes!!!  I've been a Marvel fan boy most of my life and have always followed mainly Spider-Man , The Punisher, X-men and The Immortal Iron Fist. The only two DC comics character I followed were Batman and Martian Manhunter but one thing about DC even when they do their Infinite Crisis stories and New 52 stuff is they don't mess stuff up so much that I ever wanted to just stop reading.  A friend of mine kept telling me about Arrow so over the storm damaged Valentine's Day Weekend when I wasn't sweeping my lady off her feet I watched Arrow.


I don't want to get into a rant about Marvel being bought up by Disney and how it has ruined the Spidey I grew up with or how Disney somehow poisons good stories when they feel the need to attach their names to things simply because they bought the rights to do so.  What I see as fact is that DC does a good job with their animated series and anything else they've done on TV by bringing other characters into the new medium and gaining interest from a newer audience.  I didn't care about Green Arrow before, I never cared for bow and arrow heroes before this.  I gave S.H.I.E.L.D. a chance, I watched the first three episodes and got really disinterested really fast.  I thought we were going to see more of what the Marvel universe had to offer but instead it seemed like some 90's show from "The WB".  Oddly enough the network that carried that moniker brought out Arrow that I only just recently got into via +Netflix and whatever they're doing there is what Marvel should have been doing with Agent Coulson and his agents.  I know some exclusive Marvel related shows should be coming to Netflix soon so I hope they learn to not make it a show about characters no one seems to care about.  The DC universe is dripping through a show about a character I never cared about until now so maybe they'll take notice otherwise...

Marvel....you have failed your readers.
