Highly unlikely Marvel/DC are done being woke

A writer at the American Thinker took a look at Marvel and DC's obsessions with wokeness, including the repetitive forcing of homosexuality down everyone's throats:
Victoria Alonso's contributions such as She-Hulk, The Eternals, and Captain Marvel have left some people wondering if the MCU is dying. When the news of Alonso's firing broke, some MCU fans were relieved, saying, "Good riddance, hope this is the first step to getting the MCU back on track."

In the Marvel comics, we are seeing similar corrections. The creators of Marvel Comics came close to adding "Snowflake" and "Safespace" into the Marvel Universe. According to marvel.com, Snowflake would have materialized light blue snowflake-shaped ninja stars. Snowflake's twin, Safespace, can materialize pink forcefields for protecting others against bullying. It is probably no coincidence that the female twin sports a blue suit and the male a pink suit. Thankfully, these characters didn't make the cut.

The MCU may be moving in the right direction. Does DC need to do the same?

Detective Comics, or DC for short, has made the MCU's woke crusade look like child's play the last few years. While the MCU is still surviving due to the ongoing support of its pre–fourth phase movies like Iron Man, The Avengers, and Guardians of the Galaxy, DC has been losing writers, losing money, and losing fans due to its unrelenting woke agenda. DC has taken some of our time-tested heroes and remade them to be transgender, bi, gay, or in some other category of inclusivism.

Pushback began in 2021, when some staffers in DC exited when Superman's motto was changed after nearly 80 years: the writing staff dropped the phrase "the American Way." This prompted a Superman colorist to announce that he will not seek to renew his contract with DC, claiming that he was tired "of them ruining these characters." Taking it a step farther, Superman's son is now a bisexual social justice warrior. Many complained when Clark Kent told his son that his purpose was to preserve "Truth, Tolerance, and Justice." Jon Kent's kiss with his boyfriend effectively started a sales plummet, which kept the Superman comic out of the top 50 comic book sales in December 2021.

We also have gay pride in Gotham City. In 2021, Batman's iconic sidekick, Robin, developed a crush on a boy. According to gayety.com, Robin's homosexuality was to be featured in a fresh DC series recently canceled by HBO's streaming service.

[...] The writers at DC are doing their best to normalize the chaos in our culture. It will never work. And so far, the backlash is costing these companies millions of dollars, all while destroying the stories of their iconic characters.
Whether or not DC, under current editor Marie Javins, who's proven an utter embarrassment, moves away from the wokeness they've been espousing until now, they'll be doing it awfully late, when sales are deep in the sewer, and they've long driven away much of the audience they could've had, and sadly rejected. But alas, chances they'll serious abandon their PC stances are very unlikely, and there could still be more awfulness on the horizon. Including the company wide crossovers that gradually destroyed their continuity, and even without the crossovers, they were still throwing away continuity in the early 2000s.

One of the commenters said:
I was one of the nerds. Back in the 70's I was reading Spiderman, Ironman, and the Avengers. I do think it helped improve my vocabulary, "I will thwart your plans of world domination." I was also reading The Lord of the Rings when many considered it a stepping stone to Satan worship. I don't read the comics anymore, but I do kind of notice what they are doing to the characters and story lines. The first run of the MCU was great. Captain America First Avenger was great. The first Avengers was great. The first few Ironman movies were great. They really blew it with Captain America during the era of the Arab Spring and the huge upsurge of Muslim suicide bombers. Captain America could have been in the battle against the jihad, but they totally ignored it. It would have been hugely popular. The Fellowship of the Ring was great, but the Lord of the Rings franchise went downhill from there and I totally gave up after the second Hobbit movie.
Marvel did worse than ignore the serious issue of Islamofascism. Beginning in 2002, they became apologists for it, turning to Blame America propaganda, and as the Muslim Ms. Marvel and Green Lantern make clear, they're still perfectly willing to fluff-coat the subject, while imposing a barrier against writing stories dealing with the issue seriously. If recent entertainment history is any indication, it's either LGBTQ or Islamic propaganda. And they won't even be honest about how the latter disapproves of the former.

And as I've pointed out in the past, under the corporate ownership they have, that's exactly why Marvel/DC can't be repaired.

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.
