It's not the problem with the industry, it's a reality of the fanbase. There's a difference, and that creates the rift in the # of males vs females. If there were more females buying books, and female leads sold big numbers, there would be a big difference in the ratio.

Listen, Chris, what you're doing here is using sexism to defend sexism. The reason the books sell to male readers -- they are marketed to male readers. Why are they marketed to male readers? Because people assume only male readers will be interested. It's a cyclical argument.

It's the underlying problem behind the sexism in all superhero comics. It's not a proper defense.
