Obviously, I haven’t followed comic books in quite some time, but I’ve seen Marvel Comics stories in the news a lot in the past year or two. I saw a headline this week that makes it clear that Marvel Comics and Industries are not something any Christian ought to have anything more to do with. The latest character is called “The LGBTQ Captain America.” A further look into Marvel Industries reveals Marvel’s current devotion to witchcraft, demonism, and the occult. The following is from a recent article on Marvel Comics content:
A fictional book called Darkhold, also known as The Book of Sins, is the focus of a Marvel Comic book series, the Marvel television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Runways, and the live-action miniseries WandaVision (2021). The author of Darkhold is supposed to be Chthon, “a demonic Elder God who was Earth’s first practitioner of black magic.” Pages of Darkhold are said to be scattered across the earth and can summon massive dark powers. Darkhold mythology is filled with wizards, sorcerers, incantations, spell casting, curses, demons, vampires, werewolves, zombies, necromancy, superpowers, magic healing, astral projection, teleporting, dimension travel, “high evolution,” deceit, theft, torture, murder, not to speak of nakedness. One character even sacrifices her soul to Chthon. Another popular Marvel Comic occult character is Scarlet Witch. Appearing in Marvel comics since 1964, her superhuman traits are a product of magic and scientific experimentation. She is a member of the Avengers superhero team. By magic, she impregnated herself and bore twin sons, Wiccan and Speed. Between 2015 and 2017, Scarlet Witch was featured in her own comic series. She also appears in Marvel animated films, television series, arcade and video games, including Captain America. She is the main character in WandaVision and is scheduled to appear in the forthcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
