The Problem Isn't Diversity

Marvel Comics Exec Claims Focus on ‘Diversity’ Behind Falling Sales
Comic fans are happy to see new heroes or all sorts. We're open to new African-American, female or LGBT characters. Be imaginative. Try 'em out and see how they fly. The problem is that's not good enough. MARVEL feels the need to diversify old core heroes like Iron Man, Thor, and Spider-Man. Older fans don't like it and stop buying. Iron Man is Tony Stark and anything else is unacceptable.

Wait until the "new,improved,diverse" superhero movie craters worse than "Ishtar" or "Waterworld".
Grab 'em by their wallets and their hearts and minds will follow....
