SJW's are a complete perversion of liberalism and "tolerance." It's not a one sided problem: republicans hijacked morality in the 80's and 90's to suppress free speech in music and media. Now the Dems are.

Well said. :-)

Although it should be noted that Tipper Gore (Democrat Al Gore's wife) was the one who started the PMRC. :-)

Stan Lee always had the good sense to bring up social issues with analogy and alegory. Marvel, currently, does not use the A&A approach. Marvel now spells everything out for the reader and throws social justice (Maoist) content into the comics in a very ham-fisted way. that's why the comics dont/wont sell

Yeah, I've made reference to that before. That, or I just went full Rick Sanchez on you.

Exactly. It's all in the storytelling.

Show - don't tell.

I think Peter David was excellent at this in the 80's and 90's.

I guess you hate Stan Lee for that? Shit, wait, Superman was actually kicking Nazi ass before the US even declared war. A large number of Americans supported Germany before we joined, so Siegel and Shuster must have been pissing those people off with their view of social issues.

Deep down why do you care if the newest version of MJ isn't white? Why is that so upsetting to you? Seriously, why?

Peter goes to a fucking inner city school and somehow historically all his classmates are fucking white... that is the least realistic thing in a series about a human gaining spider power.

This came up in the spiderverse thread too. Somebody was pissed that Doc Oc in an alternate universe was female, and that iconic characters shouldn't be altered, yet they weren't bitching at all about the giant fucking dragon version of Green Goblin.

For fuck sake, the X-Men comics are nearly entirely about treating everybody as equal and not judging them by their appearance or physical abilities. WTF do you think that is about?



It's a visual medium, and I didn't recognize the character because she's not a smoking hot pale skinned red head. I happen to like smoking hot pale skinned red heads.

Exactly. That's her whole thing.

It makes as much sense as making Storm a white gal from Wisconsin or Wolverine from Mexico.

Yes, it actually is important to the character.

And if "race doesn't matter" why are the constantly changing it? I mean, that's the point is that it shouldn't matter what race you are, right? So why change it?
