The current chair of Marvel Entertainment, Isaac Perlmutter, is a businessman whose political and financial actions directly conflict with the message of the company for which he serves as CEO. An avid supporter of Donald Trump and his presidential campaign, Perlmutter has given over a million dollars to support Trump and his initiatives, and has been a close friend to him for years. Trump and his cabinet have been responsible for such horrific acts as placing separated children of immigrant parents in cages, funding the development of massive, unsafe migrant detention camps, and deporting an increasing number of innocent migrants from the United States through ICE, on the grounds that they are "criminals" worthy of punishment. Trump has also inspired numerous white supremacists to take violent action against immigrants and, more broadly, people of color, and Trump has done nothing to condemn such actions, going so far as to call white nationalists "fine people". Donald Trump is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, and Islamophobic individual, whose political efforts serve to tear the U.S.A. apart. By forming such close ties with him, Perlmutter is actively serving as an example of everything that the superheroes who paint Marvel Comics' pages stand against.

Marvel, since its inception, has created and promoted stories about diversity, tolerance, love, and resistance to corruption, and many people, young and old, look to its characters as role-models who inspire humanity to be the best that it can be. Perlmutter, on the other hand, has long stood against the progress that Marvel's heroes have pushed for, preventing Marvel Studios from making female-led films, and making horribly racist comments about the actors who portray the beloved characters on the big screen. While he no longer has any control over Marvel Studios, his current position has doubtlessly kept many from making moves towards a better future for everyone at Marvel Entertainment. 

It is time to kick Isaac Perlmutter from his current position as chair of Marvel Entertainment. He stands against the progress that ought to be made for Marvel to have an increasingly powerful and beneficial impact on today's society through its stories of human betterment. And if the current profit earned from Marvel Studios' films since the end of his involvement says anything, it is that the public largely feels the same way.
