Marvel’s latest adversary for ‘Daredevil’ exposes its blindness to antisemitic art

Not everyone sees the “Daredevil” images as only antisemitic. “The image also seems to pull on anti-Arab imagery,” said Hussein Rashid, an independent scholar whose focus is religion and comics.

“The use of symbols against an adversary or The Adversary is quite common in comics,” said Rashid, adding that “comics, not just Marvel, are replete with images and storylines that continue to reinforce narratives of marginalization.”

Though he admits that the comics companies are improving on this score, “these tropes need to be pointed out.”
