We’ve noticed how X-Men Red has been one of the few titles at Marvel Comics (these days) that continues to wear its political heart on its sleeve. Last month’s issues had anti-mutant hate mobs using social media to organise and then march sporting lit tiki torches, an obvious reference to the Charlottesville marches.
In X-Men Red #4, they take a closer look at the social media that kicked things off. And there’s someone behind it all, of course.
X-Men Red there, giving us an analogue for Cambridge Analytica, doing all they can to do so without actually mentioning the company by name (which curiously used to be based just next to where Forbidden Planet used to be)
