Therefore, comic industries had to create comics mainly for male readers. However, by doing so, it will stop the consumption for female readers even more.

It is not fair to call comics sexist, while they are just doing what they need to do sell their comics. If female readers think that comics are sexist, then they need to show that they have much as amount of consumption and readers in the comic industry.

As Iron Man, corporate spoke-man for Stark Industries, Stark battles Cold War inspired foes to protect his company and his country. Yet, his condition has not been cured; he must wear his armor chest-plate to stay alive. Iron Man was the most political of all Marvel comic characters. Iron Man was overtly pro-…
