Outspoken Hollywood actor James Woods slammed the entertainment industry for its blindness to the views of half the nation.

The critique coming as Woods responded to some of the women to be featured in a new graphic novel from DC Comics that celebrates the “Wonder Women of History.”

Included among the 17 “real-world heroes” to be featured will be none other than self-described socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and fellow squad member, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

Woods tweeted: “Amazing that the entertainment industry completely disregards and in fact disrespects the political beliefs of half the nation.”

“Not all heroes wear capes,” DC Comics announced on its website. “Wonder Woman has been an inspiration for decades, and while not everyone would choose her star-spangled outfit for themselves, her compassion and fairness are worthy of emulation. We’ll be presenting tales of the real-world heroes who take up Diana’s mantle and work in the fields of science, social justice activism, diplomacy and more!”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and failed presidential candidate, Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-Mass, will also be included, as will raging liberals like Beyonce and tennis star Serena Williams.

It goes without saying that no conservative women will be featured.

As radical as AOC may be with her hard-left politics, even the Bronx bartender falls short of the special brand of crazy that Tlaib brings to the table.

Here is DC Comic’s “real-world hero” being physically removed from 2016 Trump campaign event.

Yet, DC Comics plans to uphold Tlaib as a role model for young girls to emulate?

Another person featured in the graphic novel is trans activist Marsha P. Johnson, formerly known as Malcolm Michaels Jr.

“Wonder Woman has been an iconic figure for girls and women around the world for generations,” Johnson said in an interview with Nerdist. “She gave me the example of a woman who combined justice, compassion, athleticism, and power that I needed.”

“Our kids are hungry for examples of women and girls who have fought against oppressive systems to make the world a better place,” the activist added.

Other “real-life heroes include LGBTQ+ rights activist Edith Windsor, gay stand-up comic Tig Notaro, and gun control activist Emma Gonzalez, the former student from Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Fla., site of the 2018 mass shooting.

The list leaves little doubt about the political make-up of those running DC Comics, and while young readers may not care much about that, they are being subtly shaped by the hard-left politics therein.

And if that’s not troubling enough for you, consider this online response suggesting that Ocasio-Cortez is being set up to run for president in 2024 — she currently does not meet the constitutional age requirement:
