SJW Marvel No More? Disney Fires Editor in Chief; Instead of Promoting Also-an-SWJ Second in Command, Disney Goes Outside the Leadership Chain to Put the "Talent Liaison" in Charge

Oh, don't believe the "SJW Marvel No More." It's my theory that Disney is responding to SJW attacks on its profitable movies by giving the SJWs its not-very-profitable stupid comic books.

The comics are being sacrificed on the Bonfire of the Social Justice Vanities so that the movies can keep having those damnably cisnormative, toxically-masculine straight males playing the heroes.

Men who like icky things like hammers and heavy-metal tech and vaginas and stuff.

If you remember, Marvel Comics president Ira Perlmutter appeared with Trump to give him a check for "the veterans" when he did that counter-programming stunt, appearing at "for the vets" fundraiser in a broadcast competing with the debate he was boycotting. Ira Perlmutter does not seem then like the kind of guy to give the order to turn every straight superhero gay and replace every male superhero with a female version.

No, I'm pretty sure this is Disney. Pure corrupt leftwing Disney.

While this transgenders-are-superheroes-if-you-think-about-it initiative was greeted by many of Marvel's hard leftist "creators," this really wasn't Marvel Comics' corporate decision. I think the word came down from the real Corporate Masters, the leftwing ideologues of Disney, to placate the hard left by setting the comics on fire with stupidity and leftist politics.

While Iron Man remains male and profitable in the movies, they'll continue Iron Man's gender/racial transition into a black teenaged girl in the comics. Because no one reads those any more (thanks largely to Marvel's give-the-comics-to-the-lunatic-SJWs corporate strategy).

So okay, SJW Marvel is still on. However, at least the failed team that brought two disastrous years has been shunted aside for a Talent Liaison -- what a slap in the face to the current leadership team. At least their failures are now acknowledged.

But that new leader will just try to bring a Fresh Hot Take to the Same Tired Social Justice Bullshit Disney wants Marvel comics to do.

The new guy will put into place a whole series of exciting new failures he's been itching to see fail in print.

This is about rebranding, not remaking. They just want to give some new hype line to the company -- "MARVEL IS BACK!!!" or "EXCELSIOR ETERNAL!!!" some bullshit -- while doing the same stupid shit.

There's no reason to change Disney's corporate strategy of sacrificing the weak member of the herd to protect the strong member.

Let's face it: It works. The movies make billions and the comic books make... well, they make deadweight in the discount bins. It's like throwing an old tuna fish sandwich behind you when a pack of jackals is chasing you. Who gives a shit about the stinky tuna fish sandwich? The important thing is getting the important, revenue-generating asset -- your actual body and life -- out of the line of sight of the jackals.
