In brief

Marvel recently announced the release of the last part of the Mockingbird, written by Chelsea Cain. In fact, production was closed due to the low popularity of comics.

On the one hand, loyal fans experienced a loss. On the other hand, this decision was tied to the fact that the character of the heroine carry feminist sentiments. For example, such a resource like Funny Junk often come across ridicule on this topic. Below is an excerpt quite popular.

“I have an idea
We make a female super hero
That mocks the stereotypical flawless female hero trope
Like a criminal says “haha you can’t stop me!”
And she is like “why because I’m a girl?”
And he is like “No because I have a gun”
And then he shoots her and runs away
Then she gets medical or some ****
A d learns from her mistake
And buys a gun
The end”

Kane is also accused of distorting the story, which apparently was not the history that the heroine was raped.

The last statement in this occasion were Chelseas’ words: “But know that I did not leave Twitter because of rape threats or because someone had posted my address, or any of the truly vile tactics you hear about. I left Twitter because of the ordinary daily abuse that I decided I did not want to live with anymore. The base level of casual crassness and sexism. “
