Marvel cancels Black Lives Matter comic book

Well, so much for that.

This iteration of the comic book saw Black Panther and other black superheroes in the Marvel universe such as Luke Cage, Misty Knight, Storm and the former Avenger Manifold, trying to solve the death of a black woman named Ezra Keith who dies in police custody.

Keith’s death is reminiscent of the real life death of Sandra Bland.

The comic book takes place in near-future New York, where Harlem is placed under martial law.

Uhh, yeah. It doesn’t sound all that compelling. Sounds like Sci Fi Victimhood to me. Check out Oshay Duke Jackson’s excellent vlog above.

I agree with everything Oshay says above. He’s correct that the BLM activists only want stuff for free, and that that’s typically a terrible demographic to pursue if you want to sell stuff. He’s correct that lots of this BLM stuff is based on lies and misplaced victimhood. He’s also correct that people don’t like hanging out with “losers” and hearing “sob stories”–it’s a big reason why no one cares about the plight of Asian men, who are considered to be of lower status in many ways. People will listen to it and consider it–as empathetic people should–but they don’t want to be inundated and overwhelmed with stories of loserhood.

But I will say that I am a bit surprised though that this comic book didn’t sell. Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote this book, and I thought that crowds of rich White liberals and Asian feminists would prop up sales just because of that. I guess even they have limits on what they’ll do for the cause.
