I don't know that the absurdities of all this 'SJW stuff' could be much more blatantly obscene. This has to be satire, right? Nope, Marvel actually
went and in the main comic book run of "Iron Man" Tony Stark's role has been replaced by a teenage black girl.
There’s a new Iron Man. Well, Iron Man for now. She’s still working on the name. The events at the end of the comic-book event series Civil
War II will result in Tony Stark stepping out of the Iron Man suit and a new character, Riri Williams, taking over, Marvel tells TIME. (Note: Tony’s
departure doesn’t mean you know the end to Civil War II yet.) time.com...
Now before you go getting your _______ in a wad, this isn't complaint about there being females, or blacks, in comic books.
The big thing here to underscore is that this isn't merely a new 'Iron Girl' (er "Ironheart") series. It's replacing the primary protagonist in the
main Iron MAN book series with a teenage girl.
That's right, it's not even a Iron woman, no, it's a 15 year old teenager.
Considering the primarily male demographic that are even in to comic books, business wise this decision by Marvel doesn't make any sense.
And it's not like this is some minor character. I need not even explain beyond four words: multi billion box office.
While it's not like there's ever been a shortage of female comic book characters (plenty of which have hosted 'their own' publishing runs). Names
(just that include gender ID's alone) include: Wonder Woman, Supergirl, She-Ra, Catwomen, Wonder Girl, Spider-Woman, Bat Woman, Lady Mastermind,
Invisible Woman, Lady Deathstrike, Catgirl, She-Hulk, Hawk Girl, Madame Hydra and Queen Bee. Adding in major Super Heroine characters the list most
likely goes far beyond the percentage over male main characters when compared to actual readership demographics. Not to mention there is a good chance
of minor plus 'ordinary' characters in any given book being roughly equal to the real world.
So it's not like Marvel was desperate to save face. Their top tier X-Men franchise has long been friendly to both females and multi-ethnic characters.
I'm not sure what Marvel's "Civil War 2" run is all about, but it sure is interesting that Iron Man becoming Iron Teenage Girl is a fallout from it,
while the very PC Extremist ideology that pushes this kind of stuff is already showing the signs of a literal civil war in the real world. This goes
for both here in the US and in the EU, the two most multicultural promoting places in the history of the known universe.
For added fun this truth stranger than comic book science fiction tale, there is an weird history of Marvel being a US government et al etc propaganda
front you shouldn't have too hard of a time looking up.
And on that note, way to stick it to the "Patriarchy", Marvel CEO Isaac Perlmutter.
