Last month, Marvel presented the variant cover for Spider-Woman #1 which featured the superhero in an overtly-sexualized, anatomically silly pose that had her presenting her lady bits to the city below. On Tuesday, the company announced that it had canceled two covers that Milo Manara, the artist responsible for the sexualized Spider-Woman, was slated to draw.
Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1 and Thor #2 were both supposed to have Manara variant covers — collector's items that are rarer than standard covers — which will now be created by other artists, Newsrama reported.
Manara is known for his erotic comics. And the argument here isn't whether or not Manara should be allowed to draw his erotic art. The question is why Marvel, a colossal comic company that has started to position itself as a diversity and gender equality leader in the industry, commissioned Manara to create the Spider-Woman cover if what it was touting was gender equality.
