'GoT' ending still getting trolled; Marvel joins the fun now
Marvel has hit Game of Thrones where it hurts the most—its disappointing ending. A comic issue on Spider-Man pokes fun at this super-popular show of HBO, in which Miles Morales, the new Spidey on the block, is fighting a dragon, the quintessential GoT symbol. The issue in question is titled Miles Morales: Spider-Man #23, which is available online and in comic book shops.
The comic issue concerned is part of Marvel's King in Black event crossover, in which symbiote god Knull is wreaking havoc on Earth as Marvel's superheroes and Venom try to fight him. Morales is also up against symbiote dragons that have been unleashed on Earth by Knull. The GoT taunt from the Brooklyn teen comes when he is dodging a dragon.
This particular comic issue, written by Saladin Ahmed with art by Carmen Carnero, has Morales swinging with his web between buildings as the dragon tries to destroy his school. He says, "You mad cuz that show you were on keeps ending up on 'worst TV endings of all time' lists?" This is a direct reference to GoT getting featured on many such lists.
However, Morales soon goes into damage-control mode, saying, "Well, I don't care what anyone says. I thought...," when the dragon interrupts his viewpoint by snapping his web. The comment is left incomplete, which is why none would probably ever know Morales's real impression of the GoT ending. But the storyline proceeds positively with him freeing the dragon from Knull with a venom blast.
While fighting the dragon, Morales literally uses his webs to ride it, just like the way Daenerys Targaryen did while riding her dragons. To recall, HBO faced massive backlash for GoT's ending, which showed an unbelievable and unsatisfactory twist in Targaryen's character. Besides, a rushed storyline in that season left fans fuming, with many feeling insulted since they invested so much time in GoT.
