I think Marvel Comics lost a lot of readers today, and I may be one of them (at least when it comes to new comics). I'm only a casual reader anyway, primarily around the releases of these new movies. Sometimes I'll buy comics and not get around to reading them for months. I'm doing that with the "Secret Wars" big reboot event, where they're effectively "destroying" the entire Marvel Universe and replacing it with something lame.
Spider-Man has been one of my favorite characters since I was a kid. Today they announced that Peter Parker will no longer be the main Spider-Man after this event, but will be replaced by Miles Morales, the "social justice warrior" experiment from a few years ago (he's black and hispanic, and already replaced a murdered Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe). Marvel Comics is no longer a company centered around storytelling. Today it's focused on pandering to special interest racial and gender topics, influenced by screaming SJWs who have never read a comic but have made comicdom the latest target of their calls for "diversity" at all costs. Today Captain America is also black and Thor is a woman. Instead of creating new superheroes who fit the racial/gender parts they feel are lacking, they're taking established and legendary white and male heroes and changing their races/genders. It's truly disgusting, disrespectful and disheartening.
