DC Comics Supergirl Writer Marc Andreyko: “Disappointed and Sickened by White Men and the 54% of College Educated White Women Who Voted for Trump”
DC Comics' Supergirl and Superman: Leviathan Rising Special writer Marc Andreyko took to Facebook to declare he was "disappointed and sickened by white men and the 54% of college educated white women who voted for trump. [sic]"
DC Comics’ Supergirl and Superman: Leviathan Rising Special writer Marc Andreyko took to Facebook to declare he was “disappointed and sickened by white men and the 54% of college educated white women who voted for trump. [sic]”
Andreyko made the comments on Facebook during a discussion surrounding the recent abortion laws in Alabama and Georgia.
The discussion eventually saw two users blaming men for what they viewed as an attack on the current Roe v. Wade Supreme Court Decision. Andreyko initially weighed in to dispute the generalization being made that all men are bad.
Andreyko would write, “Waitaminute. [sic] you are complaining about the south and Midwest being generalized and then you talk about all men being bad? huh?”
However, Andreyko would quickly be criticized. One person told him there is a difference between people making jokes about people from Alabama and “people about to lose their reproductive rights.”
Facing the criticism Andreyko would respond by writing:
“oh, I am incredibly disappointed and sickened by white men and the 54% of college educated white women who voted for trump. this [sic] insane attack of Roe v Wade is despicable and will cost lives.”

He would go on to warn against generalizing people into large groups.
“I was referring to you being upset with people lumping “the south” in as one big group while you did the same thing about “men”. if we’re gonna complain about the Right slathering a huge group with one bursh, we on the Left have to be careful about using the same rhetoric.”
Andreyko’s comments are the latest in a string from DC Comics and Vertigo Comics creators.
- Vertigo Comics writer Zoe Quinn called Republicans evil and stupid last June.
- Vertigo Comics artist Ramon Villalobos stated, “we should put white people in FEMA camps.” In fact he admitted that Twitter had removed a number of his tweets “for being anti white.” He justified the tweets claiming they “were all jokes.”
- Vertigo Comics writer Rob Sheridan attacked Michael Knowles and Ben Shapiro. He called Michael Knowles “a gaslighting racist dickstain.” He would then tell him to “shoot yourself into the sun.” He would then question, “Does Ben Shapiro have a whole stable full of little white racist elf boys who go around spreading hateful bullshit to scared losers for money?” He would go on to state that Trump supporters are “promoting ethnic cleansing” and “vile racist authoritarian policies.”
- Vertigo Comics artist Robbi Rodriguez bizarrely tweeted out two graphic images depicting close-ups of an uncensored male anus to former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver.
