Mailvox: Marvel and the Swamp

A reader's email may explain why Ms. Marvel #1 mysteriously sits on top of Amazon's Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense category day after day, week after week, month after month, despite the fact that so few people appear to be buying it or otherwise paying any attention to it.
ComicsGate may not be up against just SJWs, but various third string proxies of the Swamp.

Sana Amanat, Marvel's Muslim VP of Content and Character Development and Ms. Marvel co-creator, is the cousin of Huma Abedin, Hilary Clinton's longtime aide. Two of Sana Amanat's brothers have been prosecuted by the DOJ. The Amanat family donated as much as $1.2 million dollars to various Clinton foundations and initiatives. In turn, perhaps due to their family connection to Huma, the Clinton State Department assisted two of Sana's brothers in accessing UN funds and partnerships, along with directly granting $1.35 million via the State Department for their non-profit groups. Sana herself was on the board of one of these non-profits, which received at least $100,000 from the State Department.

A non-profit Omar Amanat co-founded, Soliya, received a $1.25 million grant from the State Department. Soliya advocated for the (i) promotion of and (ii) provision of funding for positive portrayals of minorities, particularly Muslims in media, even if this meant funding commercially unsuccessful projects for a time, due to their enhancement of both minority self-perception and overall public inclusiveness. This business philosophy seems reflected in some of the publishing decisions made by Marvel.

Sana's brother Omar has been documented by various journalists as having made multiple generous bids at Richard Branson's past charity auctions. Sana Amanat began her career at Branson's newly created Virgin Comics, which only existed from 2006-2008 before being sold by Branson. Sana was employed at Virgin from 2007 to 2008, before she then joined Marvel in 2009.

Sana's aunt and Huma's mother is a noted, prominent Saudi Arabian member of the Muslim Sisterhood. Marvel has recently received favorable treatment from the Saudis, including recent screenings of Black Panther that ended a national 35 year cinema ban and co-operative involvement in Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 initiative.

Marvel has newly expanded Sana's role, though she remains a comic book editor, making her an executive producer on a forthcoming Marvel animated film, despite her complete lack of experience as a film producer.

Vox, I thank you for your entry and involvement in comics and more fully appreciate your efforts, especially as it becomes evident you will potentially be the only viable alternative to current corporate comics. Comicsgate can rarely sustain an effective offense against mere SJWs on social media; they have little chance of success against entrenched, organized and well-connected Swamp surrogates who are camouflaging themselves, finding allies, and then attempting to metastasize throughout the comics industry.
That sounds... deeply insidious. I have never heard about anything of the sort, beyond wondering a) why Ms Marvel #1 has continued to "sell" so well on Amazon despite not being one of the top 500 graphic novels and selling fewer than 205 print copies in July 2018, and, b) wondering why Marvel would select Saladin Ahmed to write a Spiderman title after the failure of his Black Bolt series. I just assumed Amanet and Ahmed were the usual token diversity hires. But if it is true that Marvel is being funded by political non-profits, this might explain some of their more seemingly inexplicable decisions in recent years.

I wonder what DC's excuse might be?



Now, I wasn't going to post this without at least confirming that the two Amanats were related, and I had some doubts about that after discovering there is virtually nothing that publicly links Omar Amanat to Sana Amanat. Neither of their Wikipedia entries even mention the other individual. But a little poking around strongly suggests that they are, in fact, brother and sister.

From Wikipedia: Omar Amanat is the co-founder of Peak Group Holdings which is the largest shareholder of The Twilight Saga studio Summit Entertainment, in which he holds a 20% ownership stake via Peak Group Holdings. Brent Lang of The Wrap called him "the most powerful person in Hollywood you've never heard of". He was convicted in December 2017 of fraud for his involvement in a scheme that involved a number of companies, including KIT Digital and Enable Invest. Business Insider reported that he was expected to spend a minimum of 10 years in jail after "a striking fall from power". Amanat grew up in Montville, New Jersey and was educated at Montville High School.

From InStyle: Alongside writer G. Willow Wilson, this Marvel Comics editor helped create Kamala Khan (of Ms. Marvel), the very first Muslim female South Asian superhero to have her own series. Through the comics, readers are introduced to a teen who is honing her shape-shifting superpower and embracing her faith. Since the first issue was released in 2014, Ms. Marvel has been nominated for numerous awards and listed on top-selling graphic novel charts....  As a kid growing up in New Jersey, Amanat’s world was filled with science fiction, thanks to her three older brothers. 

From the Morristown Daily Record: Montville High School will induct nine alumni, a faculty member, and a team into the Hall of Fame Friday night. 1) Sana Amanat. As Marvel’s Director of Content & Character Development, Sana Amanat oversees  efforts to expand its vast library of characters.

In other words, whether you like politics in your comics or not, there is no way you're going to be able to avoid them if the Swamp has decided to use them to wage cultural war against you.

Of late there appears to be a lot of payola flowing out of various back doors.

Entertainment industries seem to be a preferred channel for this. Probably because the financial side is so murky and byzantine to begin with.

Books, Netflix and now Marvel. All of them have been used for massive payouts.

If they're willing to even enter comics, a medium with relatively modest reach, imagine how deeply entrenched they will be in more mainstream ventures (cinema, TV, Netflix and other streaming services). This is about total cultural control, and they'll be successful either way, as destroying a non-conforming medium with poor content that no one pays for is almost as good as corrupting it with pro-Narrative garbage

I’ve also noticed that “The Holocaust A Graphic Guide” consistently sits at #1 or 2 in the Military category, even though it only has 10 reader reviews. It’s been at that spot for months. If so many ppl are buying it shouldn’t they be reviewing it?

The twinks who follow EVS could do something useful and start badgering Marvel for some of them fedbucks.

Blogger Damelon Brinn September 17, 2018 9:12 AM  

Something I've learned from watching the breakdown of Hollywood and the politics of Silicon Valley is that there's an *enormous* amount of money flowing around and through all these entertainment/tech companies and their corrupt government connections. So much so that the bottom line of individual projects they fund doesn't really matter much. They can throw millions at a side project that pleases them ideologically, and if it fails it doesn't even show up as an accounting error. They can toss a few billion into an SJW-run non-profit slush fund, like a more overtly leftist United Way, and not worry about it. I wouldn't be surprised at all if that kind of funding is propping up these attacks, as well as the untalented people who are oddly prominent in so many cultural fields.

Some will say big corporations have always thrown money around to influence politics and culture, but I think it's reached a new level now. Especially with the tech corporations that have so little capital compared to what they net, and so little invested in America. They don't have the same kind of investment to protect that, say, Standard Oil or GE had, so they're more frivolous.

Tidbits like this just seem to provide yet more legitimacy to Q and the Anons.

Blogger Jack Ward September 17, 2018 9:34 AM  

Perhaps the Trump swamp cleaning will address these murky financial moves. The recent hurricane into the east coast is one of the things that has delayed the great un-redacting, I believe. Trump, Q and the rest we have our hopes on probably did not want the news cycles corrupted by the storm coverage. This makes the wireless alert test upcoming later this week even more noteworthy. After that the reveal of de-classified material. Followed by what? With Oct soon to be upon us and Nov. elections not far after, one would expect that a lot of sealed indictments would reach daylight soon. I hope. And, maybe, such as Marvel and other attacks that seem directed to our youth will be addressed. I agree with observation above that comics converged with mussie influences are a form of cultural treason. Perhaps one of the most effective. Stand firm patriots; trust the plan. Its about all we have left.

Blogger Silent Draco September 17, 2018 9:54 AM  

it sounds like an excellent reason to cut the Federal budget by 20%, through random zeroing of line items. Watch what Congress and SJWs in departments try to replace. Then make the next zeroing, and organize some RIFs (reductions in force).

Hard to remain converged if the attacks are nearly random, but are highly chaotic.

And explain directly to We, the People that it's smoking out the rats and other Swamp creatures.

@17 Jack, I assumed the executive order seizing assets of anyone connected to human traffickers was the first big step in that. Especially when the media failed to react as hysterically as they should have to something so sweeping. But there's so much money involved that even if they seized 90% of someone's assets, it wouldn't be obvious from the outside, because they'd still be able to afford yachts and big parties. But now we're starting to see SEC investigations popping up. I suppose it makes sense that Donald Trump would work through financial methods, different from how most of us would tackle things.

Blogger Max Boivin September 17, 2018 10:01 AM  

And remember kids, their pushing of Muslim characters is not a pro-Muslims move (after all, Islam forbid the depiction of humans and animals), it's a anti-you move.

Blogger R Webfoot September 17, 2018 10:12 AM  

$1.25 million is a lot of cash to burn....... Hypothesis: They buy copies regularly in a steady drip to inflate sales numbers. How many per month would they have to buy to pin it where it is? It hovers around 1000 on Kindle sales overall; last I checked it was 1050 or so, now it is 950.

I hope so, too. Because sealed indictments are useless, until they are unsealed. There is no point in keeping your powder dry, if you don't burn it at the right time!

The yachts and parties have kept on, but so have the anti-American slush funds, like the one that's funding Marvel. That executive order would cause much squealing if it were ever enforced, which leads me to believe that it hasn't been, and that the Ruling Class believes it won't be.

It would be interesting to plot out the cross-connections. We know there's a massive set of connections between the Democrat Party and the Propaganda Press - revolving-door hiring practices, politicians married to reporters, political operatives with relatives in the media.

But this indicates that the entertainment media is also plugged in to a degree I don't think had been expected. Yes, we knew Hollywood was full of Leftist actors. And that the Clintons were wired into Hollywood Big Money. But comic books?

Blogger VD September 17, 2018 11:25 AM  

But comic books?

Comic books are directly connected to Hollywood because people who fund and make movies don't read books. They're basically storyboards.

No one ever talked to us when we published our first 100+ books. We didn't publish three comics before various industry people began contacting us.

Did you see the most recent EO from Sept 12?

It allows the AG and DHS to freeze the US accounts & resources of foreign actor found to be engaged in election interference, prevent US donations from flowing to them, prevent them from entering the country, and since it's easy to instantly move large piles of money around electronically, there's no advance warning when the hammer is about to come down.

It might as well be called the "Just try me, Mr. Soros" executive order.

The Watchman Movie is an edited motion storyboard of the comic book. Even the comic had too much subtext for the film.

There are all sorts of slush funds developed to keep various Mockingbird projects and others at least to appear like they are making money. More of it did come from SA,then even Soros, and likely some of that is still happening from SA. We even have many home grown funds distributing cash to hold up companies that cannot make it on their own.

Obviously, this has all been faked for a long time. And, yes, comics are part of the Mockingbird Narrative. Loop Capital, out of Chicago, is just one major player in the getting money to the cabal members that need it in a timely fashion.

Keeping this one comic in the lead position is small spuds for any of the cabal branches. They do this with tons of things.

"Half of the top 10 box office draws of 2017 were straight-up comic book movies, and I think that's typical these days. There's a lot of overlap there."

The fact of the matter is, Hollywood is so devoid of actual talent that they only thing they can do now is make films where everything, all the way through storyboarding has already been done for them."

The days of taking a novel like Anna Kerenina and making a film out of it are long gone... Personally, I think this is by design... each generation gets lower and lower quality product out of Hollywood. Cultural dumbing-down.

Blogger Al Du Clur September 17, 2018 8:24 PM  

The sanest way to look at any issue these days is to assume everything in the mainstream is a lie. I was not surprised to find that half of Hillary's followers on Twitter turned out to be fake, just like I have never been surprised to find that the daily narratives of the New York Times turned out to be fake or much of the history we have been brought is fake. However, the old comparison to peeling an onion comes to mind frequently these days as I find the lies taught about history and current reality go farther than I thought. Now I just have to assume every TV rating, book sales chart, financial report and anything else than comes from official sources is fake. We now have all the truth and transparency of China minus a government that doesn't hate us, seek to replace us, and isn't subservient to israel.
