Stephen Colbert had a good time munchin' popcorn and watching Marvel's latest feature, Captain America: Civil War. However, he couldn't help but notice the excessive amount of dicks in spandex:
Colbert started by pointing out the "common thread" he'd noticed in all of the characters' names:
He then made another very important observation:
Next, he put the jokes aside and got to the meat of the matter; Marvel intentionally does not have female superheroes or villains:
He explained that the writer of Iron Man 3 was told by Marvel that the character had to be changed to a man:
Because "the toy wouldn't sell as well if it were female."
But Colbert was quick to say that it shouldn't just be Marvel and Iron Man 3 that gets the flack. Why couldn't Dr. Doom have been a woman after all?
It's definitely food for thought. Thanks, Colbert, for sticking it to the man!
