ADMITS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES April 3, 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50 526 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office, Marvel Comics sales have been having serious issues. One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker, Iron Man, etc with ridiculously politically correct "diverse" versions In a revelation that would surprise no one, comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man.

 MARVEL V.P. ADMITS POLITICAL
 CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES
 April 3, 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50
 526
 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office, Marvel Comics sales have been having serious
 issues. One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker, Iron
 Man, etc with ridiculously politically correct "diverse" versions
 In a revelation that would surprise no one, comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a
 Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man. And Marvel's VP of Sales
 made the mistake of admitting that.

<blockquote><p>Well… Somebody’s fucking lying.</p></blockquote>
<p>diversity in and of itself doesn’t kill comics, but pointless, endless reboots, massive events that rely on you keeping up with 12 given titles at any time, and constant, badly established legacy characters are why comics are failing</p>
<p>not to mention splitting up iconic superhero titles among more than one person at once</p>
<p>did you know there’s actually 3 people running around with the Wolverine codename at the moment?</p>
<p>Let’s take some examples:</p>
<p>Riri Williams popped up with no buildup after Tony Stark got murked, but he was apparently monitoring this 15 year old girl teen prodigy never mentioned before in his comics, entrusted with an AI based on his brain patterns and personality to mentor her.</p>
<p>You know, as compared to however fucking many characters they could’ve given his legacy to.</p>
<p>Also we’re supposed to believe someone as egotistical and self glorifying as Dr Doom would take on the identity of Iron Man?</p>
<p>Please.</p>
<p>It’s the same shit as Jane Foster as female Thor, with a healthy combination of plothole.</p>
<p>Somehow, a human woman who has not been involved with Thor in way, with a terminal disease that was ravaging her body, somehow ended up ON THE MOON without any protection and managed to pick up Mjolnr and was found Worthy by it after the fight where Thor ceased to be Worthy.</p>
<p>Like, you know, instead of Sif, a long time companion of Thor and who can pick up the hammer or Angela, who Marvel had then won a recent legal fight to be able to use….</p>
<p>People don’t dislike it because it’s “diversity”</p>
<p>They don’t like it because it’s weak, pandering writing that doesn’t stand up to internal logic.</p>
<p>Now, an example of this done right is when Sam Wilson, aka, the Falcon, became Captain America</p>
<p>for one thing, he was actually established as working closely with Steve Rogers for a long time in the comics before he was given the mantle. By Steve Rogers himself.</p>
<p>See, at this point, Rogers got rapidly aged cause his super serum stopped working and he was an old man, so he couldn’t do it any more, but he was still around to give Sam advice and support over comms.</p>
<p>But of course, until Marvel actually bothers to learn why people aren’t buying their shit, they’re gonna keep making the same mistakes, as long as they’re insulated by the losses of the MCU and being used by Disney as a vanity press, they’ll never learn and lose more ground to DC and the indies</p>
<p>EDIT: Also I totally forgot, unrecognizable new brands they try to create.</p>
<p>If your comic customers, as in the customers that go in and buy things, if they go “who’s this” and show you a comic, then they’re probably not gonna pick it up. They’re there to buy Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine, X-Men, Avengers they can recognize, not fuckin Stardude or whatever odd new thing they’re gonna push is.</p>
<p>It’s nothing to do with race of sex of the characters concerned, but if they’ve got no brand recognition to support their solo titles, they’re gonna flounder.</p>
<p>Not even getting into the alienating, pointlessly political shite like that infamous Mockingbird “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” t-shirt schlock stunt.</p>
<p>What’s also more damaging than that is a flippant response to criticism or calling their readership racist assholes on twitter or whatever. That’s a really bad look for an industry professional when you’re not even an artist or a writer as someone essential to a comic book.</p>

<p>this person forgot to mention how they shoehorn in unnecessary commentary and subplots no one was looking for. it honestly feels like that sometimes spider man stops mid fight and says “did i mention im a gay POC” (hyperbole but kind of true)</p>
</blockquote>
<p>this, sadly, is Not Hyperbole with America Chavez</p>
</blockquote>
<p>And the worst thing is?</p>
<p>With tweaking and good writing, Riri and America (what a stupid name) could work.</p>
<p>But because Marvel is run by incompetent pandering idiots, they’re the worst ideas to ever come out of the company.</p>

We believe that political correctness has done more to silence rather than encourage important discussions that our society probably needs to have." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jenner has not commented on the matter.

Andrew Bogut, Bloods, and cnn.com: THE COP WHO SHOTJUSTINE DAMOND IN COLD BLOOD IS MUHAMED NOOR, ABLACK ISLAMIC. IMMIGRANT FROM SOMALIA SEE HOW FAST CNN AND THE RE LET USS ST OF THE DEMOCRAT PROPAGANDA MEDIA BURIES THIS STORY 😡 Political Correctness strikes again! Another innocent life taken by an Islamic Somalian refugee of one of the most radicalize countries in the world and they are working over time to erase this story from the media. This is what happens when you stress diversity. As you know I back the blue 110% but this story stinks like high heaven of obamas implementation of diversity in law enforcement. The lady in the picture calls the police because of noises in her backyard of someone asking for help or being sexually assaulted she is in her pajamas talking to the police officer on the driver seat and mr Muhammad decides to shoot her in her abdomen from the passenger side because he heard noises. The story doesn't add up and more so when the media is all hush about it and their were no weapons found at the scene. BCA agents interviewed Officer Harrity (driver of the police vehicle) earlier today. Muhammad in another hand has declined to be interviewed by BCA agents at this time. Muhammad attorney did not provide clarification on when, if ever, an interview would be possible. The officer on the driver seat even stated that he was shocked this happens and it should have never happened. White privilege as suppose. There won't be no looting, no riots, people will go by their own business and by next week no one will remember. I do hope that at least this Muhammad never returns to the police force again. Also neither of their body cam didn't work at the time of the shooting.
