Marvel Comics’ 2018 Strategy: Less White Males

They clearly hate conservatives.

Published

on

To the far-left, there’s nothing worse than white males. To them, everything wrong in the world is blamed on their whiteness, and there is no way to get over those ills until the white man is forcefully oppressed. Just watch any video from Buzzfeed on race for examples of these claims being thrown around.

The leftists at Buzzfeed have been spreading these anti-white claims  for many years, and because of people like them, that same rhetoric has been spread into more mainstream institutions. And as it turns out, the comic book industry is not immune.

While speaking to CBS This Morning, Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski stated that going forward the company is dedicated to increasing diversity both in their comic book characters, and in their staffing, stating:

“We’re 100 percent committed to diversity…Marvel is the world outside your window and we want not only our characters but our creative talent to reflect that world and it hasn’t been an easy road to be honest with you. Going back to the 60s when Marvel were created it was created by a number of white men here in New York City who were working in our studio… But now, we do not have any artists that work in Marvel. All our writers and artists work — are freelancers that live around the world so our talent base has diversified almost more quickly than our character base has.”

Diversity has long been a contentious topic in the comic book industry, and in Marvel comics in particular. Just last year, a Senior Vice President of Marvel caught flack when he pointed out that decreased sales numbers likely had to do with more diverse characters flopping with their fans compared to more established characters.

It was the scandal around the diversity comments that led towards Marvel taking such a strong position on increased diversity.

It’s no secret that comic books are largely consumed by white males. Looking at any picture from a comic book convention is proof of that. Despite this, Marvel is highly dedicated to increasing diversity in comic books, which, in the eyes of many in the comic book community, is simply Marvels way of saying that comics are too white and too male.

Comic book creator Chuck Dixon recently spoke with Bounding Into Comics to mirror that belief:

“Diversity is code for ‘comics are too male and white, right?’” Dixon stated. “What gave them that right to decide that for their audience. And, trust me, that’s what this is about, making up their audience’s mind FOR them. There”s no real tolerance here. No real diversity. You take their brand of indoctrination or hit the pike. And millions of readers have chosen the pike.”

Dixon has a long history in the comic book industry, co-creating the wildly successful Bane comic for D.C. Comics. Despite his popularity, Dixon has been blacklisted from Marvel Comics for over 15 years for political differences.

His blacklisting isn’t very surprising considering how liberal Marvel has been in many of their comics. They have even gone so far as to demonize conservatives in their comic books, often giving their villains right-wing political positions.

As reported by Bounding Into Comics:

“But if anyone who has actually been reading and following Marvel Comics over the past few years, Marvel has been anything but diverse and reflecting the “world outside your window.” One of the worst examples of this is Marvel writer Nick Spencer. Spencer was given a number of Captain America books to write and he took the opportunity to attack conservative and libertarian values and ideas.

In the first issue of Captain America: Sam Wilson, Nick Spencer decides to turn the long-time Captain America villains the Sons of the Serpent into conservatives who love the United States, believe in the Constitution, and are against illegal immigration.

Spencer wouldn’t stop there. In Sam Wilson: Captain America #5, he would malign exceptionalism, hard work, and free markets.

But maybe Spencer’s most egregious attack was an attempt to destroy the entire brand of Captain America by turning Steve Rogers into an Agent of Hydra, Marvel’s equivalent to Nazis.

Spencer isn’t the only one at Marvel who has used the publisher as a political platform.

In Spider-Gwen Annual #1, writer Jason Latour and artist Chris Visions imagine President Trump as M.O.D.A.A.K. or Mental Organism Designed As America’s King. The character is a riff on the Marvel villain known as M.O.D.O.K. or Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. The story sees Spider-Gwen team up with an alternate reality version of Captain America to beat up the President Trump look alike.”

So this new move by Marvel likely has more to do with advancing the far-left agenda of demonizing white males in America than actually promoting “diversity.” I wonder if they are going to promote intellectual diversity, and create a comic with a conservative super hero?

Free Speech

Dana White Vows No Censorship in UFC After Media Campaign Against Pro-Trump Fighter Colby Covington

White is standing for free speech.

UFC promoter Dana White is standing strong for free speech, vowing never to “muzzle anybody” after pro-Trump fighter Colby Covington was targeted by a media campaign for making controversial statements following a huge victory last week.

“These guys all have their own causes, things, their own beliefs. We don’t muzzle anybody here,” White said. “We let everybody speak their mind.”

Covington made some candid comments following his defeat of Tyron Woodley at UFC on ESPN+ 36 in which he dominated the former champion who had professed his support for Black Lives Matter. He took the opportunity to gloat following his big victory.

“He’s standing up for lifelong criminals,” Covington said regarding his opponent Woodley. “The Black Lives Matter is a complete sham. It’s a joke. They’re taking these people that are complete terrorists. They’re taking these people that that are criminals.”

“He’s a communist,” he added. “He’s a Marxist. He stands for criminals. He hates America, and that’s why he got broke tonight.”

Covington also garnered controversy for making remarks about Nigerian-born UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Covington referenced his “little tribe” and “smoke signals” while calling Usman out. The fake news media brought up the issue to UFC fighters, who expressed their dismay, in order to push their latest phony race controversy.

“Let’s be real, first and foremost,” bantamweight Sijara Eubanks said. “It wasn’t ‘unfortunate.’ It was flat-out racist. It was racist. It was disgusting. It was quite frankly disappointing.”

“This guy has directly insulted my culture, my brother and many other cultures, and no one says anything,” Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said. “But it just shows you a mirror. Shows you a mirror to you guys.”

“Reebok is the uniform provider for the UFC, however we do not sponsor Colby Covington. We do not agree with the sentiments he expressed, and stand firm in our belief that Black lives matter. We stand with athletes and communities who are fighting for change,” the corporation that sells shoes made by third-world workers wrote in an official statement.

Not only is White refusing to take disciplinary action against Covington, he is also claiming that Covington’s comments are not even racist and no big deal.

“I don’t know what he said that was racist. I don’t know if I heard anything racist that he said,” White added.

Big League Politics has reported on how White has stood up for pro-freedom causes in the past, such as when he fought tooth and nail against senseless COVID-19 lockdown restrictions preventing him from doing events:

UFC promoter Dana White has refused to succumb to coronavirus hysteria and remains steadfast in his resolve to hold fights even while panic grips the world.

White announced on Monday that his next pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, April 18 with a new main event in a currently undisclosed location.

White has even said that he intends to hold UFC fights on a weekly basis at a private island, refusing to slowdown even as the global economy shutters due to coronavirus mania. He opened up during an interview with TMZ Sports on Monday.

He told TMZ that the next UFC event will take place in the United States, and he intends to use that venue to host fights for two months. However, White claims he is only “a day or two away” from sealing a deal that would allow him to hold fights in a private island venue, and this would potentially give him a reprieve from all the coronavirus-related hassles that he has dealt with over the past month trying to book fights.

“I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too with international fighters,” White explained. “Because I won’t be able to get international fighters – all of them into the U.S. – so I have a private island. I am going to start flying them into the private island and doing international fights from there.”

“So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running,” White declared.

White has claimed that the fake news media is doing everything in their power to sabotage his efforts, as they want the public to suffer during the worldwide coronavirus lockdown as much as possible.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

White might be wise to consider a career in politics after he retires as UFC promoter.
