Marvel for her vs. Marvel for him

If you Google “Marvel clothing line”, it’s about a 90/10 split of male clothing to female clothing. If you go to Marvel’s online store, they have some T-shirts and tank tops for women (many are unisex), but there are few options. Despite past arguments on the subject, women are just as likely to be fans of superheroes as men, but for some reason it is a very underutilized market.

Marvel wisely decided to put a better quality version of the trailer on their youtube page, and in doing so, set a record, notching over 34 million views in the first 24 hours (and is rapidly approaching 50 million).  But that left ABC without a draw for the weekly Marvel Cinematic Universe series, so Marvel added a little something … Continue reading
