The Embarrassing EW Civil War Cover


civil war coverThis morning Entertainment Weekly revealed their cover for Captain America: Civil War, and it’s simply embarrassing if you’re a comics fan.

If putting “meow” next to Black Panther wasn’t bad enough, they compared the King of Wakanda to a Real Housewife! I know EW wants to lure some soccer moms at the checkout stand with a witty caption, but it’s just insulting to one of the best characters Marvel is bringing to the big screen. T’Challa thrashed Wolverine! He’s not some male version of Catwoman, he’s a King and one of the most kick-ass characters in Marvel’s roster.

EW did a great job with their Force Awakens coverage, but this Civil War cover is a huge step back.
