Last weekend Universal attempted to relaunch their classic monsters franchise with the Tom Cruise-fronted The Mummy. But the negative reviews came fast and vicious. Our own Tori Preston lamented its confounding “plot with tomb-sized holes.” CBR called it “ugly, senseless, and boring,” and Hypable deemed it “everything wrong with the current state of cinema.” But none of the many, many, many pans of this deeply-flawed feature film compare to the hilarious and ruthless review comic book writer Gail Simone unleashed over the weekend.

It began innocently enough on Twitter.

But things took a turn hard and fast. She pants a vivid picture so you too can know the sensation of seeing The Mummy without having to actually endure it. rush

Gail, we know you’re a super successful and influential comic book writer and everything. But if you ever want to pen some scathing reviews for a certain feminist hugbox, DM me. I have a sense you’d like it as an Overlord.
