Marvel to discipline X-Men Gold artist

Ardian Syaf, currently the artist for X-Men Gold, has been criticised for including the images.

Marvel fans pointed out that Colossus's shirt contained the words "QS 5:51" and, in another scene with new X-Men leader Kitty Pryde, a building had 212 written on it.

The references go against the company's inclusiveness policies, Marvel said.

It is also removing some artwork from the online edition of the comic.

QS 5:51 is a reference to a verse in the Koran, while 212 marks a protest on 2 December in Jakarta.

'Logan': Another R-rated superhero hit for Fox

"Logan," 20th Century Fox's latest X-Men film, made an estimated $237.8 million at the worldwide box office this weekend. Roughly $85 million of that total came from the North American box office. The movie stars Hugh Jackman as the grizzled and clawed superhero Wolverine.

The North American opening weekend total exceeded industry expectations that it would bring in about $70 million. The haul is even more impressive since the ultra violent film is rated R, rather than the more inclusive PG-13.
