Marvel Admits Heavy-Handed Moonbattery Is Hurting Sales

Marvel’s insistence on using comic books as a ramrod to force moonbattery down readers’ throats has had a predictable effect on sales:

Marvel’s vice president of sales [David Gabriel] has blamed declining comic-book sales on the studio’s efforts to increase diversity and female characters, saying that readers “were turning their noses up” at diversity and “didn’t want female characters out there”.

Insulting fans by implying that they are snobs and sexists isn’t going to bring them back. Kids weren’t too sexist to read Wonder Woman comics. No one but a moonbat likes being force-fed moonbattery.

Irritating examples of P.C. proselytizing from Marvel include servile adoration of Obama, U.N. propaganda, replacing Iron Man with a black woman, a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a mulatto Spider-Man, Thor getting a sex change, Captain America beating up Tea Partiers and other patriots, and of course a homosexual superhero.

Has Marvel learned a lesson from the financial beating it has been taking? Not according to Gabriel:

“Let me be clear, our new heroes are not going anywhere! We are proud and excited to keep introducing unique characters that reflect new voices and new experiences into the Marvel universe and pair them with our iconic heroes.”

No wonder moonbats like socialism so much. The free market sends them signals that they don’t want to hear.

Comics aren’t as fun as they used to be.

On a tip from J.

    What do you get with such a quote from Spidey??

    YOu get low ability AND high needs

    Comic books have had tiny sales for decades and are considered “loss leaders”- the profits come from merchandising and, of course, Hollywood- where the crazy ideology fits like a glove.

    Blogger VoxDay who written the book SJWs always lie, posted a good rant about Marvel as well. http://voxday.blogspot.ca/2017/03/diversity-in-comics.html

    I’ll stick watching good old 1967 Spider-man cartoon episodes and see how trigglypuffs will react.

    Alienating your customer base to try to expand it is remarkably counterintuitive and counterproductive.

    Moonbats only learn lessons the hard way. Problem is, all they really learn is that everybody else must be wrong so they double down.

    And they haven’t gone so far with toxic leftist drivel in the Marvel movies as they have in the comic books, at least not yet.

    May they ride their leftist brainwashing principles into bankruptcy.

    I grew up reading Marvel comics and Captain America was a great role model. He told the truth, fought the good fight and always did the right thing even if it was unpopular or hurt him personally. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I was very concerned when the Captain America movie was being made. They were making superficial changes to his costume but would the key elements stay true? I was very happy that they did. When he jumped on the (dummy) grenade to save everybody – that summed him up perfectly. Self sacrifice to save someone else. In the first Avengers movie they strengthened the point even further when Widow commented on being careful with Thor and Loki because they are gods. Caps response was “there’s only one God and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t dress like that”. The entire Theater cheered.

    How far Marvel has fallen from these iconic characters.

    You can say that again… from 50 years ago (Marvel vilifies dastardly commies):

    Definitely Jack Kirby art work.

    I understand. I felt the same way about the uniform not being chainmail. Are there many 45 WLA’s still around?

  • Eddie_Valiant

    You’ve succinctly described businesses run by liberals.

  • Son of the Rabbit People

    Gave up on comics decades ago because of this garbage. It’s been a long time coming. They will not admit to being wrong and/or stupid, so this isn’t going to change any time soon.
