Dan Slott on voicing his personal opinions online:

In response to a query as to whether Marvel has ever said anything to him about this, he replied "Nope."

And if Slott merely voiced his views on that subject matter, Marvel (and everyone else) shouldn't care. But that's not what he (and his peers) do. They demean, insult, and even troll those who disagree with them.

Not in my experience. Middle school-aged kids, maybe, but not middle-aged employees of a monolithic company.

Maybe this is partly why the "best-selling" comics these days are lucky to have some 100,000 purchased, whereas 20 years ago it was easily ten times that number.
