Marvel Pulls X-Men Comic Book because Muslim Artist Included Anti-Semitic, Anti-Christian Messages

In a scene of Marvel’s X-Men Gold #1 by Indonesian artist Ardian Syaf, published last Wednesday [4/5/17]. . . “Colossus’ shirt has the numbers QS 5:51” stamped on it. “QS stands for Qur’an Surah, with Surah meaning chapter.” (Bleeding Cool)

The verse translates into English as ‘O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are, in fact, allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is one of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.’”

There are other pro-Islam images and references throughout other Marvel issues drawn by Ardian Syaf. In a way, the chickens are coming home to roost for Marvel. The company has been pushing an ultra-inclusive agenda for some time. If “anything goes” if it’s art and inclusive, who can object? Where is the line drawn, and who gets to draw that line.

Here’s the official statement from Marvel:

“The mentioned artwork in X-Men Gold #1 was inserted without knowledge behind its reported meanings. These implied references do not reflect the views of the writer, editors or anyone else at Marvel and are in direct opposition of the inclusiveness of Marvel Comics and what the X-Men have stood for since their creation. This artwork will be removed from subsequent printings, digital versions, and trade paperbacks and disciplinary action is being taken.”

As we’ll see, Marvel didn’t apologize or issue a similar statement when a Thor comic attacked Christians.

Controversy over the content of comic books is not new…
