Rio’s mayor tried to ban an Avengers comic featuring a same-sex superhero kiss. Now it’s sold out
An Avengers comic book featuring a kiss between two male superheroes has sold out at a Rio de Janeiro book fair after the city's conservative mayor attempted to block it from sale, according to Agence France-Presse. Marcelo Crivella, who is affiliated with the evangelical megachurch Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, demanded that the Marvel comic book "Vingadores: A Cruzada Das Crianças" ("Avengers: The Children's Crusade") be withdrawn from sale at Rio's biennial book fair.
