Marvel Comics decides to pull a little of its much-ballyhooed Diversity from X-Men:
The mentioned artwork in X-Men Gold #1 was inserted without knowledge behind its reported meanings. These implied references do not reflect the views of the writer, editors or anyone else at Marvel and are in direct opposition of the inclusiveness of Marvel Comics and what the X-Men have stood for since their creation. This artwork will be removed from subsequent printings, digital versions, and trade paperbacks and disciplinary action is being taken.
Apparently a Diversity artist has been sneaking anti-Jewish and anti-Christian references from the Koran and Indonesian politics into the comic. Quelle surprise. Whoever heard of an artist surreptitiously slipping their beliefs into art before?
But why would Marvel erase this Diversity? Are we not reliably informed that Diversity makes everything better?
