DC Finally Overtakes SJW Marvel as Top Comic Book Company of 2017
—Ace
Marvel recently fired its SJW Editor in Chief, and cancelled a slew of SJW titles in what butthurt SJWs are calling an apocalypse, but they're still pumping out already-written-and-drawn SJW comics. It won't be until the 2nd quarter 2018 that we'll start to see if Marvel is still an SJW clownshow.

But as for 2017 -- the damage was done. Looking at the entire year, DC beat Marvel.

Looking at the most-ordered comic books in the North American comic market, DC Entertainment had a particularly strong year, with seven of the top 10 issues of the year being published by the home of Superman, Batman and the Justice League. The numbers illustrate how much the market has changed in the past few years -- in more ways than one.
Comparing this year's most-ordered issues with the top 10 from 2014, the scale of DC's success becomes more apparent; just four years ago, not one DC title made it to the list, with nine titles coming from Marvel alone. (By comparison, Marvel takes just three places this year, with one of those due to its inclusion in a subscription mystery box service.)


They mean that Spectacular Spider-Man #1 was included in one of those Loot Crate or Geek Box type services, so there was a big order for that from that company.

If you check the list of the top ten, most of DC's biggest sellers were either Batman, or the Batman-related event "Dark Knights/Metal," or the big event merging the regular DC universe with the Watchmen characters.

DC is a little too Batman-o-centric, I think, for its own health. Fashions change. What happens if (or when) Batman falls out of such high favor?

They really need the rest of the A-list to get closer in popularity to Batman.

Not sure if "Supergirl" is a Marvel or DC character but this seemed as good a place as any to post this article:

CW’s ‘Supergirl’ Is Going Transgender for Season Four


24 May 2018611
The CW’s popular superhero series Supergirl has announced the addition of a transgender character for season four.
The news broke after several sources noticed that producers issued a casting call for a new character to be named “Nia Nal.” The character is described as a transgender woman in her early 20s. No ethnicity or race was specified, according to ComicBook.com.

The character is likely set to take over the newsroom at the show’s CatCo newspaper company.



According to the report of the casting call notice, the new character will be “a confident, wunderkind of a fashionista. Once a political speechwriter, Nia is the newest addition to the CatCo investigative reporting team. With her, she brings sparkling wit and biting humor but under that banter-y, chic facade, lays a soulful young woman who has much to offer the world.”

This new transgender character hardly marks the first time that Supergirl had plunged into the world of left-wing PCism.

Starring Melissa Benoist, Supergirl debuted in 2015 on CBS, but by season two it had been shuffled over to the CW network. From the beginning, the series was focused on a girl-power theme, but the series didn’t start really heading into PCism until it was secure at the CW Network.

After a few episodes at CW, Supergirl began introducing gay characters and dissing conservatives, and President Donald Trump.

In its first season, the show went after former Fox News TV host Bill O’Reilly. In one scene, for instance, in her role as girl Friday to the show’s publishing chief, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), Benoist said she had to make sure O’Reilly was distanced from her boss.

“I’m calling about the Correspondents dinner,” Benoist said on the phone while walking busily down the street. “I need to make sure Ms. Grant doesn’t end up next to Bill O’Reilly again.”

That same year, Benoist insisted that her show was a “feminist show.”

“I think it’s great,” Benoist said to Stephen Colbert. “And I think what’s feminist about it is that it’s for everyone. She has all the same powers [Superman] does.”

By 2017 the show had become reliably left-wing and in a November episode offered yet another Trump bashing aside with one of the characters saying that Nazis were angling to “make American Aryan again,” in a slap at President Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

In the meantime, the show revealed that one of its main characters, Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh), was gay and then was featured in a season-long gay relationship story arc.

With all the “wokness” in the series, Warner Bros. ended up opening an investigation into Andrew Kreisberg, the show’s executive producer, after fifteen women and four men accused him of sexual misconduct.

Supergirl returns this fall to the CW network on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

I will admit to having watched a handful of Supergirl season 1 episodes when it was on CBS (IIRC it was a lead in show to another CBS program that I watched).
I have no clue what is going on the show since then.

Superman/girl (or is it Supergirl-man now?) is a DC property.

Although I don't think IPs matter too much to the Trogressive Social Engineers running the vast majority of media these days. They'd inject their propaganda into everything, given the chance.

It did get better when it switched to The CW, ditched the Supergirl/Jimmy Olsen romance and made her sister into a hot lesbian.



It can be a fun show providing you can stomach the "girl-power", sjw inserts and snidey Trump bashing.

I think where I left off watching in the season one episodes Supergirl and Jimmy Olsen were still an item and they had the first hints of her sister being a lesbian.

Trump wasn’t even on the horizon yet.

Definitely sounds like a show on The Cunt Whistle (The CW)

What are you guys doing reading comic books?

That's for children... just like the movies.

I think that I was probably 10-12 yrs old the last time that I read a comic book.
It involved soldiers, maybe some GI Joe comic or something similar.

I never really got into comic books.

I stopped watching when Supergirl went after Jimmy Olson's black dick.
