It has been reported that NY Times bestselling writer and former writer for Marvel Comics, Chuck Wendig, has been fired from the company.
 
Wending decided to take to Twitter and revealed this update, which he stated "So, here’s a thing that has happened – I just got fired from Marvel. Taken off issues 4 and 5 of SHADOW OF VADER, and taken off an as-yet-unannounced SW book. This might be a long thread, so apologies in advance."
 
Wending continued with "And then we announced SHADOW OF VADER juuuuust last weekend, and people were excited, and I thought everything was good. I was not made aware of any issues, and my online self-has always been my online self, so. Except, yeah, no"
 
Wendig closed his update out while adding just why exactly he was fired "Today I got the call. I’m fired. Because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark, the editor said. It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part."
 
Wending being fired because he tried to write 'Star Wars' into being political is extremely strange. 'Star Wars' was created during a political era just coming off the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, and many other real-world issues. Creator George Lucas constantly talked about how he purposely added politics to Star Wars and wanted to make its involvement apparent. 
 
The whole series has politics all through it. I mean the prequels featured the Senate and Democracy, which is politics and then the prequels featured it with the Empire and both were extremely political showings. 
 
This is truly odd indeed.
