Eh I kinda disagree, I see plenty of non cape stuff from Dynamite,IDW and other smaller publishers.Eh, I draw and it doesn't take a fat, middle-aged Mormon from New Jersey who is on his second wife and second family to make me do it. Most of the 'SJWs' he goes on about as if they are this new thing devastating comics had been around at least once before back in the early 70s, when there were characters and heavy themes about militant black power, black liberation, black seperation, heavy themes about Black Panthers, stuff like that. Louis(sp) Lane was even briefly 'magically' turned black for an issue or two, and the bulk of that comic was dedicated to her expounding on her 'black experience' and how it related to 'black struggles.'
At the time, this stuff was looked on as 'progressive.' Nowadays it's looked on as insanely cringey, because it was so heavy-handed and pushy.
At the end, there was no movement to 'take back comics,' people eventually just rolled their eyes at the preaching and companies stopped adding it in.
I could tell you honestly why comics are in trouble. It's because they are not diverse. I'm not talking about the lack of gays, trannies, and whatever. It's lack of diversity of variety. I remember my mom talking about Lil' Lulu comics. I used to find old issues of The Crypt Keeper in flea markets. I've read the old Conan The Barbarian comics, where some of tge dialogue could be a bit cheesy. Some of my favorite comics were Aliens vs Predator, and I still have some of the issues. There is barely any of that anymore. Comics used to have something for everyone, and when they now like to say that readership is largely male, that is true. But it's because it's little more but multiverse-spanning edgy capeshit anymore, with other genres bare shadows of what they were.
