A boss at Marvel has blamed a fall in sales on its move towards more diverse characters.
David Gabriel, who's vice president of sales, claims readers are "turning their noses up" at diversity and don't "want female characters out there".
In the last few years. Marvel's brought in more gay, non-white and female characters.
But many are new versions of old characters and some fans aren't happy about that.
They include a female Thor, a mixed-race Spider-Man, a black teenager who took over the Iron Man story and a Muslim Ms Marvel.
Iceman also came out as gay.
