DC Comics has been taking some heat from some licensed merchandise that suggest men are heroes, while women only date/marry/make sex for aforementioned heroes. With the comics industry already taking steps to improve representation for women and minorities, this is not a good time for poorly thought out clothing.

DC had this to say:

DC Comics is home to many of the greatest male and female Super Heroes in the world. All our fans are incredibly important to us, and we understand that the messages on certain t-shirts are offensive. We agree. Our company is committed to empowering boys and girls, men and women, through our characters and stories. Accordingly, we are taking a look at our licensing and product design process to ensure that all our consumer products reflect our core values and philosophy.

Okay, memorabilia isn't everything; maybe he doesn't love Harry Potter more than you, but he sure does love Harry Potter stuff more than might be considered healthy.
