Lee Falk's Phantom is being exploited for leftism in Sweden

This Breitbart article reveals that Falk's famous comic strip The Phantom has undergone the ultra-leftist treatment way across the ocean over in Scandanavia:
The Swedish language version of the classic comic book hero ‘The Phantom’ has been mocked by a Polish broadcaster after an issue was released of the superhero beating up “Polish nationalists” with a gay pride flag.

The story occurs in the latest issue of Sweden’s Fantomen magazine which sees the Phantom, a popular superhero in Sweden who was created by United States comic book artists in 1936, attend a gay pride parade in Warsaw and attack “Polish nationalists” who protest the event, Aftonbladet reports.
Does the news syndicate who own the copyrights to Falk's creation, King Features, know this is going on? Alas, if they do, they're probably fine with it, since such businesses have probably long been taken over by ultra-leftists.

Historically speaking, whenever the Phantom was drawn in color, Kit Walker's costume was usually purple, which came to be considered a leading color among homosexuality advocates years later (pink too, but that's another story). It's a terrible shame they've led to his outfit becoming so dated, and making one wonder if it'd be better to adapt a different color instead. And now, in a country surely more consumed by political correctness than any other in Europe, Falk's creation has been exploited for social justice agendas, and even denigrating Polish dissenters.

Firebrand’s see-through pink shirt was what led Roy Thomas to ret-con
the original character as gay in the 1980s All-Star Squadron, before
replacing him with his sister.
