Oh, and the article contains this lovely gem: “Since our core customer has always been guys, we need to be very careful when we introduce female product so that we don’t alienate our core,” said Paul Gitter, president of consumer products, North America, for Marvel Entertainment Inc. “ ... I'm sorry, but I'm just sick of this sort of thing. I'm sick of it being assumed I'm only in this for the pretties/female characters/hot men. I'm sick of comic store employees (and this happened once at Powerhouse) asking if I'm interested in Power Girl or the female version of some superhero, when I'm clearly picking up comics that would suggest I'm not.
