It's a judgement based on numbers and sales. Look at Spidergirl...constantly almost getting cancelled. Manhunter got cancelled but rallied back, probably for only a short time, but most of the fanbase for that is male. They do put out female books, only the iconic ones survive. It's not sexist if the reality is that girls don't buy comics. They do reach out to female readers, female readers don't respond. Like I said there are a large # of strong and dynamic female characters. Time Warner kind of knows buying demographics. They know that females are the #1 buyers of most stuff they sell. They also know that since they've been created comics, even ones starring dynamic , well written female characters, don't sell to women.
