Nick Fury Jr: We were looking into some adamantium that was stolen from S.H.I.E.L.D. base 687 — Coulson heard you were back, split the team in two, sent us straight here. You know what your best super-power is, old man? That you got so many friends.
Wolverine: I’m kind of getting that now, Nick.

What’s funny is that as the entertainment industry is changing, Hollywood needs to understand its fandoms–in all their various complexities–more than ever. The traditional methods of financing television, especially, are beginning to collapse, and the industry is searching for new metrics that almost always privilege active audiences–that privilege fandom. For instance, Variety is beginning to publish audience engagement ratings, and I can’t count the number of times someone has told me “we’re seeking to build a fandom for our show…” But unless fan voices are not just heard but listened to, it’s not likely that these efforts will be effective. They might even spell a worse environment for fans and fandom, as the rush to monetize fan culture begins.
So let’s celebrate the OTW on its anniversary! Here’s to another seven years of free thinking, of using transformative works for critique and celebration! And here’s to fan culture, built by fans and for fans!
