One of the oldest memes in the book is the kind of humor that makes fun of really awful graphic design. For some reason, a Microsoft Word banner (Word Art for those in the know) with some silly and overused text can be extremely hilarious when used in the right situations.
This new wave of graphic design memes was sparked by the unlikeliest of sources. During this week’s Comic Con event, Marvel took the chance to announce the lineup for the Phase 4 of the MCU, also known as Disney’s new and improved plan for world domination.
Tons of great stuff happened: Natalie Portman’s Thor was announced, Mahershala Ali became the new Blade and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie became the first LGBT superhero in the MCU. Still, Twitter users couldn’t help their shock when Marvel unveiled the official logo for Loki, their upcoming TV show starring Tom Hiddleston.

I guess there’s some sense in using a different font for each letter since Loki is like the God of trickery or whatever, but the result is still ugly and there’s no way of ignoring that. Check out some of our favorite responses below:
