Default Re: Representation in Marvel

It's pandering if they do that. So the comic book superhero genre was created mainly by a bunch of little white Jewish guys (Shmucks as they call themselves) who had fantasies of being something greater. It is what is is. Does the industry now owe an apology to Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, or any other special group I may not have mentioned? No.
Should they focus on creating new characters that reflect a greater diversity in race, sexual orientation, even religion to reflect the culture of today? Yes; but do not bastardize the classics because you're compelled (for whatever dopey reason) to pander to whomever.
