Whap! Pow! Fans Boot Defense Contractor Out of Marvel Comics | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 12, 2017

Comics have been going diverse, PC and SJW on us of late.  Apparently there are limits.  Shame on Marvel for wanting to accept the mark of the beast.

Over the weekend, something remarkable happened at, of all places, the New York Comic Con. Fan protests broke out surrounding Marvel Comics’ announcement of a joint venture with U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman. In short order,Marvel had scrapped the joint venture entirely.

George Will-Ron Paul is an Isolationist…Say What?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 8, 2011
