TikTok Furious Because Marvel Forgets Its Jewish Heritage During Hanukkah

A couple Tick ​​tock users shouted Wonder after discovering that the company had failed to recognize Hanukkah on its social media platforms.

The majority of the Jewish community celebrates Hanukkah for eight days, from December 18th to 26th. During this time, many partake in various activities including burning candles, playing games, and eating special foods such as latkes and sufganiyot.

Corresponding Reader’s Digest, Hanukkah is the celebration of the triumph of the Maccabees over the Syrian Greeks. The Maccabees consisted of a congregation of Jewish warriors. During the battle in 167 BC The Greeks destroyed the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and outlawed the Jewish practice altogether. After a grueling three-year struggle, the Maccabees were able to take possession of what was left of the temple and free their people to practice their religion.

In honor of the celebration, companies have either mentioned or acknowledged the holiday, unlike Marvel, which is sad given its roots. A TikTok user named @daniellesilverstone expressed her frustration by listing the photos the entertainment company shared on Twitter, which also showed Christmas decorations. As we discuss how Marvel “coded” Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) as a Jewish character hawk eyeShe said,

“So last night was the first night of Hanukkah and today is the first day to absolutely no one’s surprise. Marvel doesn’t care. So they posted a lot of things, but the main thing they posted was about Daredevil. What do we remember about Daredevil people? He’s Catholic and I was like, ‘Oh, I guess you’re not wishing us a first Hanukkah night. However.’ Until I saw what you posted today.

They advertise their Christmas show saying this holiday season. The Christmas show she codes her (Kate Bishop from hawk eye) Jewish but refuse to actually say it. The show they fully promoted is just Christmas and it’s pretty much just Christmas with Hawkeye and the Tracksuit Mafia… That’s my favorite F-King show, but that’s still a problem. And it’s even worse when you consider Disney didn’t recognize Hanukkah, it’s not Disney it’s just Marvel but DC too.”

The social media user concluded by saying that Marvel should be ashamed not to recognize the holiday because Martin Goodman, a Jewish man, founded the company in 1939.

A second TikTok user, @notfranklinsherald, revealed how she found it funny that Marvel was doing a “miserable” job recognizing Hanukkah, but showed how DC Comics was celebrating the holiday. The DC characters in the photo pose near a traditional menorah with nine lit candles. While the social media user claimed that DC is “eating up” Marvel, she explained:

“I can’t stop laughing at how miserable Marvel is at acknowledging Hanukkah. Like first his Mark Spector against a Christmas background. Then on the first night of Hanukkah they promote their very Catholic superhero and today they promoted hawk eye with some very obvious Christmas info in the poster. DC eats them up in terms of recognizing Hanukkah.”

What makes the whole situation even worse is the fact that Marvel has a handful of Jewish characters including Wanda Maximoff, Max Eisenhardt, Katherine Pryde, Lorna Dane and many others. The studio has yet to comment on the flak it received. At the time this article was written, the company had not added anything related to Hanukkah to its site.
