Joe Bass Breaks Down Diversity at the Big Two
Joe Bass of the Comic Book Hoedown blog decided to quantitatively examine character diversity in the Big Two and came up with a few interesting (albeit unsurprising) results.  After examining gender, race and sexual preference, Bass determined that both Marvel and DC’s superhero lines consisted of 20% minority characters, with Marvel beating DC on race, DC better on GLBT representation and both companies even on gender.  However, here’s why he gives Marvel the edge:

Editorial Mandate: DC’s Villains Month Has a Diversity Problem (No, Not That Diversity, the Other Type)
  I’ve been thinking about DC’s Villains Month a lot lately.  If you’re a regular reader of the Outhouse, you know we’ve been pretty critical about the whole thing, for a variety of reasons.  However, there’s one problem with Villains Month that we haven’t covered, namely the lack of diversity in its comics.  No, I’m not talking about racial or gender diversity, but rather a lack of diversity in what comics DC will be publishing come September.
Despite the recent tone of the site, I was a fan of DC’s publishing strategy going into the New 52, one that at least attempted to push a diverse brand of comics into the direct market.  With Marvel and DC combining for over 70% of industry sales, I’ve always had this naïve idea that the Big Two should lead the charge on producing innovative concepts and content that expands the market rather than relying on smaller publishers to drag the industry forward.  Instead of producing bland rehashes of storylines over and over again, what if Marvel and DC actually tried to produce original, new content?   What if comics like Hawkeye were the norm instead of the exception?
