Disney, Marvel, and Virtue Signaling: Marvel reveals first gay ‘Captain America’ in new comic series.

And rather than cast an openly gay person as a major superhero in one of their franchises, they're giving them a slot in a limited run of a Captain America series. So it feels very half hearted and it feels like it's being done to generate clickbait articles. That's what I'm seeing as a fan of both Marvel and Disney. And I have thousands of comic books. This does feel like an attempt to just sort of generate some media buzz, but not really do anything that meaningful

Is this just an attempt to generate media buzz? https://s.swell.life/SSTpMtgdkxmRN0Y
