What if there's a different reason why Marvel cancelled Milo Manara's Spider-Woman cover?

A few days ago, Marvel announced they'd dropped the variant cover by Milo Manara for Spider-Woman's latest volume. But what if it wasn't because they agreed it was too porny? This article says:
Marvel has pulled two upcoming Milo Manara covers in the wake of a recent controversy involving the erotic artist, Spider-Woman’s butt, and—according to Manara, at least—Islam. [...]
What if Manara's argument from a couple weeks ago was the reason they pulled these covers - because Axel Alonso and company disliked what Manara said about Islam? It says they're still willing to hire him, but what if they don't, hoping they can sweep this all under the rug? If it turns out that's the case, then it wasn't feminists who swayed them, but rather, Manara's viewpoint, which their staff's sent telling signs they despise. Meaning that Alonso and company's leftism struck again.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
