    So glad to see the comments box in full opposition to this biased and moronic article. Tim, no one cares about the gender or orientation of a character, they care if the story is good, if the character’s motivations make sense and have continuity based on the character’s long standing attributes (if it’s an older comic book character), etc. and that the writers and producers stop pandering to bullies. The only comic producers that are going to survive this massacre are the independent ones who make the comics they want to make, and that isn’t enough to save the comic book stores from going out of business.

    Linking SJWs to Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and X-Men is an insult to Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and X-Men. If you’re glorifying/defending SJWs, you’re a part of the problem.

    SJW is a term of criticism for a reason. They don’t get criticized for promoting equality. They get criticized for injecting politics into everything 24/7 (gotta lay off politics sooner or later), have irrational/nutty logic, and get offended over non-offensive things. These are the people who think there are more than 2 genders, not standing for the Anthem is patriotic, the NRA is responsible for mass shootings, and, in the case of college students, go to therapy sessions or a safe space when a conservative speaks on campus. And look up Bret Weinstein and all that happened with him at Evergreen State College last spring. It was an SJW-led riot.

    Last summer, SJWs were upset that Wonder Woman wasn’t feminist enough and was portrayed by an Israeli jew. https://www.dailywire.com/news/7863/liberals-indignant-over-israeli-wonder-woman-harry-khachatrian

    And some thought it wasn’t intersectional. https://www.bustle.com/p/wonder-womans-feminism-is-strong-as-hell-but-its-not-intersectional-62798

    After Charlottesville, some felt Captain America would’ve gone after just the neo-Nazis that showed up. They’re wrong. In reality, he would’ve gone after them AND Antifa.

    Some additional examples of what an SJW really is:

    I agree with you on one point only and that is the SJW label. How about Store Killers considering there are comic pros that say, no, demand that if don’t share their beliefs then they don’t want us, the customers, to buy their books. Seeing the the first customer is the store who will buy those books we are told not to buy from the comic pro that is killing their sales? The store owner is now left with a product they cannot sell and it sits on the shelf until it hits the 25 cent box. Now that store owner has to eat most of the loss for that book times however many books unsold. That is something the store owners cannot afford and will eventually have to close up for good.

    And don’t get me started on Wonder Woman. It’s not like she was created by a guy with affiliations to the suffragist movement who was in a polyamorous relationship with two bisexual women whom he modeled the character after or anything.

    Yep. And that’s why the first Superman comic was made by two low-income Jewish immigrants to represent their feelings of being outsiders who just wanna help people. Or why X-Men is so deliberately a metaphor for oppressed groups trying to have pride in a world that hates them. Nothing to do with social justice at all there /sarcasm.

    Comics have always been about diversity not social Justice there is nothing just about social Justice. Justice is supposed to be blind not based on idenity of a specific group. Justice is only just when everyone is treated equally.
