    Dominate? Really, none of the comic book numbers look that good to me. The population reading comics is decreasing it seems.

You *are* kidding with that first comment, right? It's pretty well documented out there. Yes the periodical print market is diminishing, whilst other platforms grow. But Marvel's problem is that their core IP has fallen through the floor. Like somebody said, fem Thor is one of their better selling titles. Even then, when you compare it to DC's bigger selling IP it's laughable. And when you compare it to say, JMS from just a few years ago it's tragic.

    People can do what they want with their money but I think the whole thing has also brought out something that apparently was present in the comic reading population that is pretty ugly. And even if I do not consider the aspects in question, the general intolerance towards different things is a bit scary.

I see that from the opposite end, based on what Marvel have done, the way they've done it and the reasons why. I'd question anyone's perspective, perception and intelligence if they cannot acknowledge that. I think you, and many of those on the so called liberal or left immediately assume that someone from my perspective is automatically on the right, and all the perceived associations that might imply. I haven't seen anything ugly here, other than people's desire to close down free thought and debate via a variety of methods.
