Avengers: The Children’s Crusadea comic book that was marked by having been censored by Marcelo Crivella in 2019, during the Book Biennial in Rio de Janeiro, will be republished in Brazil. According to Editora Panini’s official website, new copies will arrive in the second half of November — three years after the event.

When Wiccan’s reality-altering powers begin to rival those of the Scarlet Witch, the young hero sets out on a quest across the Marvel Universe to find her. However, this pits Wiccan against both the Avengers and the Young Avengers. But will Wiccan’s desire to solve his origin mystery be his salvation or his undoing? With three words, Scarlet Witch has changed the world forever… and now with her return, nothing will ever be the same.”

REMEMBER THE CASE

Avengers: The Children’s Crusadewritten by Allan Heinberg and originally published in 2010, its central characters are the openly homosexual couple, Wiccan and Hulkling, who appear hugging and sharing the same bed in some pages.

the former mayor of the city, Marcelo Crivella, published at the time a video on his social networks saying that he requested the withdrawal of the HQ Avengers: The Children’s Crusade for it to be sealed, with a notice of “inappropriate content” for kids.

The withdrawal was announced after a speech by the councilor Alexandre Isquierdo (DEM) in the Municipal Chamber of Rio in which the politician attacks the publication as a “cowardice” to the children and calls on his colleagues in the Chamber to sign a letter of repudiation against Marvel, panini and salvatall responsible for publishing the magazine at different times.

In an official statement, the Rio Biennale reaffirmed the plurality of the event and reinforced the right of consumers to exchange books whose contents they do not like. Check the official position here.
