New Captain America Will Be African-American

Ethan Sacks, NY Daily News, July 17, 2014

He’s red, white and blue–and black.

Captain America’s mantle will be taken over by his long-time ally, the Falcon, the high-flying African-American hero from Harlem, Marvel Comics announced late Wednesday.

“It’s about time,” says Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort of the change. “In 2014, this should be a thing that we shrug off, it shouldn’t be seen as revolutionary, but it still feels exciting.”

Brevoort says the Falcon becomes the new Captain America at the behest of the original, Steve Rogers, who has been turned into a 90-year-old man in the most recent storyline, so fans don’t have to worry that the publisher is killing off its resident star-spangled hero again.

The change will take place in the first issue of a new comic series, “All-New Captain America,” set to launch in November.

There’ll be plenty for his fellow Avengers to talk about at their headquarters: The announcement comes a day after Marvel took to “The View” to reveal that the new Thor would be a woman.

    Why?? What’s the point?? This will be like a submarine with screen doors. What’s the track record on transitioning a white comic book character to black/African-American/or whatever we’re supposed to call them? Are Ebony and Jet magazines still around? Why can’t there be a solely white-European centric comic book or magazine??

    • Mason Gull

      It’s because no one buys comic books anymore. They’re trying to appeal to the hard-left SJWs who love the idea of messing with a popular character’s identity.

      • Martel

        Indeed, it will spark much needed public interest in this comic book. Which will certainly push their sales on the short term. The thing is, only whites read these things, and whites who are into nerdy stuff tend to prefer their heroes as white as they are.

        • Sharps Rifle

          Not entirely true. The nerdier the white, the more desperately PC he is. I know a couple of white nerds who are absolutely convinced that the more they kiss up to negros, the less loser-ish they will appear to be. Think of Yankovic’s “White and Nerdy” video…you’ll see what I’m talking about. These are individuals who aspire to be as much like characters on “The Big Bang Theory” as they can be, because to them, negro and geek culture are the height of what one can “aspire” to. As for myself, I associate with these individuals to remind myself as to why I live in a very isolated area and avoid cities like the plague.

          • Anglokraut

            “Negro-geek”? Geek-dom as I understand it be, is attained by full immersion in a topic, whatever that topic may be. My boyfriend is a tech geek, an anime geek, a science geek, and a sci-fi geek, to start. A negro-geek sounds like a re-branding of “whigger”–which was never a good thing.
            Now, if we could somehow magically turn Negroes into Neil DeGrasse Tyson-wannabes, that would be a big leap forward for all of us.

          • I am still a weapons geek, though one who is sadly no longer allowed firearms. I can explain exactly where the French went wrong with the Chauchat light machinegun during WW-1 (it wasn’t the cheap materials or the long recoil action, but instead the magazine). I know the barrier to better performance out of electromagnetic coilguns is relaxation of the field inside the projectile.

            I know to debride a gunshot wound and pick all the bits of dirty cloth out. I packed cleaned limb wounds for others and eventually my own with granulated sugar once they were clean after we ran out of honey and molasses. I used rubber cement on top of that, and nothing got infected. I did that for myself, and then wrapped a paper magazine with some scrap metal to stiffen it up, and then wound an ACE bandage around that. I used a piece of soda straw as a short stint in case it needed to drain, as I didn’t want gas gangrene. I was originally trained to deal with heinous laboratory accidents before I could teach university undergrads.

            I don’t know how to save someone with a lung or intestinal wound, but I reckon I saved a lot of arms and legs.

            I imagine a combination of granulated iodine and granulated sugar would work very will for preventing infection in wounds. These could be co-precipitated as a commercial medical product, and thus intimately mixed.

          • Anglokraut

            That is all amazing knowledge, but I have to admit my mind kind of shorted out at the part when you talk about tending your own bullet wounds!

        White guys buy comic books. Particularly WASPs. These idiots don’t understand their demographic.

          Or maybe they do understand their demographic.

            We’re the kind who are too stubborn to accept an overhaul of our beloved characters. Apparently they do not get it.

        • scottthestrategerist

          No, it’s that they HATE their demographics. Think of Marvel and DC as being as sympathetic to their base as John McCain is to the Republican base. They’re an “embarrassment” who have to be replaced… with cool colored people!

          • Sick of it

            Marvel can afford to tank in the comic market, as they’ve been bought out by Disney. DC needs to tread carefully unless they want to go out of business.

          • scottthestrategerist

            DC is now owned by ABC. Yeah, they really have to be careful since there’s no money in their parent corporation. lol They can’t afford to, say, have Superman renounce his American citizenship because he’s a “citizen of the world” (already happened) or make Batwoman a lesbian (already happened).

          • Sick of it

            I did not know that…but the idea of the new 52 was a total turnoff. All of these resets and redesigned characters just isn’t for me.

          • scottthestrategerist

            Well, that’s the dilemma of the superhero comic, to wit, the comic is always set in the present, so the character never ages. This means nothing ever really happens, but to keep readers interested, and to draw in new ones, they have to reboot them or shake them up in some way every now and then. Something like Star Wars is far superior in this regard because it’s set in another galaxy and so the characters don’t have to respond to events in the real world. Even when you see something that’s a clear analogy to the real world in Star Wars, such as the Republic descending into a police state, it’s done by way of analogy. If Star Wars had failed as a movie but succeeded as a comic, Darth Vader would have come back many times, and gone back and forth from hero to villain, just like Magneto has in the X-Men, to the point where he may as well be a professional wrestler.

      • Triarius

        Ding, ding, ding! It is not like the younger generation (my generation and the one below me) buys comic books, nor do negroes or other minorities. This is shock value, pure and simple. The death rattle of an obscure thing. Of course the movies will still have a white Captain America, but the CEO of the comics and the CEO of the comic movie rights are two different people, two different companies.

        • scottthestrategerist

          Marvel is now owned by Disney.

            Marvel and Disney are entirely kosher outfits.
            Is anyone surprised at the anti White bias focused at children?

          • scottthestrategerist

            Not me! I was re-watching some episodes of “X-Men: The Animated Series,” and now that my eyes are open, I can see the antiwhite propaganda all over the place.

          • Triarius

            X-Men was originally created as propaganda for pushing “Da Cibil Rites Ack of Nytee Sisty Fo”.

            The gifted and just mutants were the minorities and the anti-mutant government were the Consevatives. They feared the mutants because they did not know them, but if they gave them a chance and not exterminate them, they would see how special they are and how much mutants could help the US. Also not passing the law is akin to another “holocaust”, hence the extermination.

          • Garrett Brown

            The reason I never really took interest in the Xmen.

          • scottthestrategerist

            Like I wrote in another post, yes and no. Yes, that’s what the New X-Men became under Jewish writer Chris Claremont, beginning in 1975. When Stan Lee created the X-Men, they were just typical angst-filled teenagers, were all white, and the civil rights analogy hadn’t appeared yet. The first issues came out in 1963, and if there’s ANYTHING political about them, I didn’t see it. They were just typical superhero v. supervillain stories. Lee said he created the idea of a mutant so that he could create an unlimited number of super powered characters without having to come up with unique origins for each of them. To be sure, as a Jew, years later he did endorse Claremont’s version of the X-Men. He also wrote an editorial, which was published in all Marvel Comics in the 60s, endorsing egalitarianism and denouncing “racism.”

          • Sick of it

            Ironically, the comic itself has moved on to show how much of a threat that mutants pose to society when left to their own devices. Just like blacks.

          • Triarius

            Must have missed that, thanks for the update.

    • scottthestrategerist

      I’m glad you asked. I grew up reading comics and both Marvel and DC were constantly pushing female and minority heroes. They never worked, and for the simple reason that the virtually all white readership couldn’t identify with them. To be sure, they could work as part of an ensemble cast, but I have to ask, if Storm was written out of the X-Men, would anyone really care? Circa 2000 they replaced Storm as the “X-Woman” with the White Queen, a blond bombshell who dresses in very revealing outfits. Sales went up!

      • JDInSanD

        Remember the recently failed TV show about a black robot police officer? They actually called it “Almost Human.”

        Who would make a black robot police officer? With blue eyes no less? A black engineer? Who would trust it?

        Now there’s Stephen Spielberg’s Extant in which we are asked to believe Haley Berry is an astronaut. She goes into space alone and comes back pregnant. Or is it already cancelled?

        • Jade1

          I saw a few episodes of Almost Human. The black robot often made the white guy look bad. I don’t support programs that are politically correct. Stopped watching it right away. Glad it was cancelled.

    The problem with nerds is that they have no racial identity. They won’t care.

    • DavidSNESGAMER

      Few of them do, but they have some of the most implicit white identities of any group.

      This is especially true in the fantasy, sci fi, and steampunk sub-genres (whereas the superhero genre does have a large black and non-white fanbase, although it’s still disproportionately white).

      So, let those people know that there is nothing wrong with preserving the very cultures they love by proudly self-identifying as white and standing up for their heritage.

      • TruthBeTold

        As a group, they are largely white. What they don’t understand is that their whiteness (love of white modern mythology) is what makes their clique attractive to them.

        But they don’t SEE it. To them it’s just people who share the same interests. What they don’t seem to notice is that those people are mostly white.

        • DavidSNESGAMER

          Exactly. And we need to teach those people that what they love comes from who they are, their race. And that if they want these things to persist, then they should be proud of their race and take actions to insure it survives and thrives.

          So I see their implicit whiteness as an opportunity, not something to complain about.

    • Mason Gull

      They do care when their characters are changed. There was a huge outcry when DC made one of the Green Lanterns a homosexual.

      • Biff_Maliboo

        No they don’t.

        Not if the character is changed ‘the right’ way.

        This kind of crap is nerd catnip.

        Black characters never become white.

        Then again, the black characters all stink.

        • Anglokraut

          I’m no friend of the Negro, or their a-CHem…handlers, but Storm on the X-Men is one of the best characters in the Marvel-verse, and she’s African. Of course this is where the die-hards chime in that she’s from Egypt, which is populated by Arabs. Correct, but Storm is not Arab, she’s probably Ethiopian, as indicated by her long limbs and lean body type.

          • scottthestrategerist

            Well, interesting you should say that. Storm was originally from Kenya. Read Giant Size X-Men #1. From what all appears, she had never heard of mutation, knew nothing about science, had never been to a city or worn modern clothes, but was purely an African who thought she was a goddess due to her powers. Later on, the mythology was changed (as they often are) by saying she was born in America to one American parent and one African parent, and only later went to Kenya. All of this happened YEARS before anyone ever heard of Obama! Talk about life imitating art! lol

      • gregCall

        Funny you said that as the only green lantern I ever heard of was Hal Jordan ( I do remember the original vaguely from some old comics of my fathers also) and when the movie came out I read many reviews that complained that they didn’t use the black green lantern from the early 70s as the character in the movie. From what i’ve read he was only in a short run in the early 70s (less than a year and again in the early 90s (again less than a year) and here’s where most of those reviewers were getting that he was the most recognizable Green Lantern, A Justice league cartoon that ran from 2001-2004 and again in the sequel from 2004-2006. Seems that comic book buyers rejected the character in the 70s and the 90s and it took marketing him to small children on afterschool tv for the black Green lantern to find any kind of acceptance.

        • Mason Gull

      • TruthBeTold

        I had to look him up but as soon as the Samuel Jackson picture came up I knew who you were talking about.

        You’re right, I’m not familiar with the controversy which, if I may say, leads me to believe the controversy was largely minor, proving my point that most comic book aficionados aren’t all that concerned about race.

        I’m not trying to start any fight but regardless of whatever controversy there was I don’t believe most CB readers much cared.

        My experience comes from knowing two avid comic readers and I would feel them out about characters and situations they told me about neither saw or understood the racial undertones.

        Like I said, most of them just don’t see race. They just like a good story line. Race doesn’t seem to be an issue with them.

        • Sick of it

          Or you don’t know many comic fans and do not talk with them about these things. There were a lot of angry fans. The black Spider-Man was an even bigger issue.

          • TruthBeTold

            Yes they may have been upset that the characters were changed but only because of their familiarity with the characters.

            They didn’t like the changes but it wasn’t driven by racial awareness and racial pride (‘Spiderman is WHITE! He’s a PROUD WHITE character!’).

            They just didn’t like the change, any change.

            I remember the Hispanic comic John Leguizamo saying when he played the character Violator in Spawn, they had to make sure that the character was in the perfect height and girth to what he was shown in the comic books.

            People didn’t care he was a Hispanic playing the role. What was important was that the film character matched the comic book character.

            Yes they were upset that Nick Fury was black in the movie but NOT BECAUSE he was black. They just didn’t like the fact that the LOOK of the film character was different from the comic book character.

          • TruthBeTold

            Just came across another thread talking about comic characters.

            Someone posted this:

            Bring back the white Nick Fury….as he was originally created!!!!

            It speaks to my point. They were upset that the original character was white and had been changed to black. The outrage is not over race, per say, it’s that they changed the original character.

    Yet another attempt by leftists to tear down whites and elevate blacks in all forms, even in comic books. The ultimate goal being complete redistribution of wealth and power from whites to minorities. Conservative whites are labeled the oppressor, everyone else the oppressed. This paradigm is used to leverage wealth and power away from whites. Whites are soon becoming the oppressed minority under a Marxist regime.

The more conservative parents who remember Captain America as a white guy will buy something else instead, and Marvell won’t make up the difference in sales to blacks.

    I’ll stick with a site like Comic Book Plus, a huge site with thousands of free public domain comics (this is not an ad; I have no affiliation). The site offers a particularly good reading experience on an iPad or other tablet.

    Even better, virtually all the comics are from the all-white, pre-1965 golden age of comics. It’s amazing how good comics were without all this “diversity” forced on us nowadays – it turns out that whites were perfectly capable of telling good stories all by themselves!

      Thanks Tim. I too have found a way to escape all this diversity nonsense. My choice is old time radio shows. There’s a website called Archive dot org that has literally 100’s of thousands of these shows: Gunsmoke, Dragnet, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar, Suspense, Escape, The Whistler, Lights Out, Red Skelton, Burns and Allen. Even the ‘black’ characters were white, as in Amos & Andy. All in the public domain and all free to download. They also have 1000’s of old movies from the 1930’s to 1950’s, free to download. Granted, most of the movies are pretty lame but the old time radio shows that I mentioned are highly entertaining. So much content that you could spend the rest of your life watching and listening to this WHITE entertainment and never go through it all.

      Thanks again for the comic book info. Will add it to my white entertainment lineup.

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        Thanks for the info. I didn’t know that Archive dot org had so many OTRs. I did know they had a large number of classic white nationalist texts, by the likes of Madison Grant, Lothrop Stoddard and others too numerous to mention.

    • Mike Lane

      My favorite is still Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns. It’s from 1985, but worth buying if you love a good social commentary on the idiocy of political correctness and government puppetry.

  • cherrie greenbaum123

    On a subliminal level this is a pathetic liberal attempt to present a black role model to little thugs-in-training who will do something positive besides robbing stores, getting stoned, and sleeping all day. Lord knows they can’t find one in real life.

    • me

      I DON’T CARE. The Negroes are failures. They have never built, made, or created anything of their own. Don’t even bring up rock and roll, the Pyramids, or peanut butter. LIES! Anything they’ve ever made has been more Negro children, and they won’t even take care of them. The Negro is on such a downward spiral in this country that their own grandparents would cringe. When you don’t know who your ‘daddy’ is, you could be inadvertently sleeping with a sibling without even knowing it. Inbred ghetto dwellers that hate and attack ‘Whitey’ will never get any sympathy from me. Nor will any ‘positive role model’ have any effect on their violent, racist, trifling, rachet ways–comic book ‘hero’, or real life hero.

  • Mason Gull

    It hurts to see DC and Marvel genderbending and browning their characters in a desperate attempt to appeal to a wider audience. I’m glad I only ever cared about the X Men, at least they haven’t been ruined yet.

    The Red Skull once told the Captain that America was no longer worth fighting for because it had become corrupt and morally degenerate. He might have been right.

    • baldowl

      The Red Skull is right, and so it’s fitting to put a negro in the Captain American costume, since the blacks despise all things traditionally American.

    • connorhus

      The X-Men haven’t been ruined yet because that group was earmarked for the Multi-Cult crowd from the beginning. The entire poor, misunderstood, persecuted Mutant line that incorporated as many minorities as possible. It was done early enough that they included some White Males because they had to. Look for the White Maleness of the X-Men to keep getting downplayed as much as possible int he future.

      • Mason Gull

        The idea super powered humans being rejected by normals wasn’t invented by X-Men comics, and I don’t know where you got the idea that they were including as many minorities as possible. All the most famous X-Men are white, and I doubt challenge that you could name five minority X-Men without using google.

        • connorhus

          Aside from Storm Sunfire and few others who were of other races the entire cast was spouting off minority issues from the beginning. Beast may have been a White Male originally but his political agenda was hands down out of the civil rights playbook. Prof. X covered the handicapped side of the equation and they threw in many a Fembot wannabe from Dazzler on every chance they got.

          The entire group was designed to be a team of misfits and appeal to the equal rights activists. It was done early enough that it retained a lot of the original appeal as well though because they needed those fans. It was more like an early indoctrination scheme as was the entire Mutants v. Man concept.

        • scottthestrategerist

          Well, I can:

          1. Storm (originally black African, but later retconned into an African American w/ a US birth certificate),
          2. Sunfire (Japanese) (resigned in the second issue of the New X-Men, but occasionally guest stars),
          3. Thunderbird (AmerInd) (killed in the third issue of the New X-Men),
          4. Shadowcat (Jewish),
          5. Psylocke (originally English but was later given a Japanese body and Ninja skills),
          6. Jubilee (Chinese American),
          7. Forge (AmerInd),
          8. Bishop (black man from 100 years in the future),
          9. Northstar (gay Canadian who was in Alpha Flight until it was cancelled and then moved to the X-Men since he’s such a “hip” character), and
          10. Beast (one of the original X-Men, he was said to be gay in one issue by the “edgy” writer Grant Morrison, but this was retracted a few issues later due to all the hate mail, with Beast saying he was only being funny).

          Assuming you count Jews as white, don’t have intimacy preferences as a category, and ignore a person who is given a new body, we still have six racial minorities, to wit, Storm, Sunfire, Thunderbird, Jubilee, Forge and Bishop.

          • Mason Gull

            I was only addressing connorhus with that challenge, but I would like to say that North was not, to my knowledge, originally homosexual.

          • scottthestrategerist

            You’re correct. In his very first appearance in The X-Men # 120, he was a ski star who was surrounded by female fans. John Byrne later stated that the Alpha Flight characters were initially complete cut-outs who only had to seem like they could credibly survive a battle against the X-Men. Over time, they developed Northstar into a homosexual, while the rest of the characters mentioned (other than the Beast) started out as obvious minorities. In the case of Shadowcat, she wears a Megen David necklace and her references to being Jewish are incessant.

      • scottthestrategerist

        Well, yes and no. Yes in terms of what you’re saying if you’re referring to the “New X-Men” which began in 1975 under Jewish writer Chris Claremont. He turned the mutants into a metaphor for racism and the team itself was mutli-racial and mulit-ethnic (although by the fourth issue, two of the three nonwhites had been written out). As for the original X-Men, they were all white and, while he wasn’t necessarily religious, Professor X was explicitly Protestant. Yes, yes, He’s named after a Catholic Saint, but he “died” in the 60s and his funeral was officiated by a Reverend Brown. To be sure, the X-Men were created by the Jews Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but Lee said that his reason for creating the X-Men was that, with mutants, he had a single origin story which would allow him to create an unlimited number of super-powered characters. It was just a plot device, the original X-Men had no racial or minority themes, and Cyclops even called Arabs “camel jockeys.” Ah, the good ol’ days! 🙂

        • connorhus

          Well I think you can see why I doubt their statements. Where it stems from etc. back then they all said they didn’t have the motives that to me are pretty obvious. The real difference is it was early enough they couldn’t go all out of the closet yet. Islam wasn’t considered a kindred soul in the 60’s like it is today.

          I see your point but I still say it was simply an early primer for what was to come.

          • scottthestrategerist

            You and I are not in disagreement. Stan Lee actually wrote an editorial against racism in Marvel Comics, and he’s always been associated with far left causes. In the 90s he tried a come-back, writing about a hero from the 22nd century who was fighting pollution which, in the intervening years, had ruined the world. It didn’t last long. All I was doing here was fleshing out the details on how the X-Men became an analogy to racism.

    • scottthestrategerist

      Uh, did you ever actually read the X-Men. Under Jewish writer Chris Claremont, the entire series became nothing but a metaphor for racism, w/ ubiquitous talk from the characters about the Nazis and the Jews, villains who were clearly stand-ins for white conservatives, such as the Klan, the Nazis and even religious conservatives. One group was called “The Right,” and Iceman commented, “They’re just anti-life… for everybody.” They had a lethal virus called the Legacy Virus which only affected mutants and so the evil humans didn’t care. But then humans started dying from it, and the “lesson” was that the Legacy virus affects everyone. Professor X would give speeches about diversity and inclusion for “everybody,” including minorities, homosexuals and mutants. Now, mutants don’t exist of course, but the young reader will subconsciously absorb the rest of the remarks and then, when later confronted with racists, religious Christians, pro-lifers, or others on the Right, will associate them with the evil villains from the X-Men.

      • Mason Gull

        First of all, when I said they hadn’t been ruined I meant that none of the major characters had been drastically changed. I thought that that would be obvious in the context of my previous sentence, but I guess not.

        Second, it’s inevitable that the X-Men will fight against human anti-mutant organizations because the whole idea behind forming the School for Gifted Youngsters, which became the X-Men, was to protect mutants from hostile humans. Not that it matters much, because most X-Men villains, and all the memorable ones, are other mutants like Magneto and Apocalypse.

        Lastly, you should realize that the Nazi party and the Ku Klux Klan have never been respectable conservative movements in the US. Nazis especially have always been portrayed as caricatures of evil in all forms of media.

      • Garrett Brown

        Claremont seems French, not Jewish.

        • scottthestrategerist

          That’s nice. He’s an admitted Jew. Since conventional information is of such value to you, here’s an excerpt from his wikipedia entry: “Claremont is Jewish on his mother’s side, and lived on an Israeli kibbutz during his youth.” In Judaism, a person is born a Jew if they’re mother is Jewish. Having lived on a Kibbutz in Israel, it’s clear that he identifies as Jewish even in the absence of his large library of writings, all of which are filled with comparisons of Nazi v. Jew, saying making a judgment on a group as a group is like “circus clowns,” etc. You’ve obviously never read Claremont’s run on the X-Men.

          • Garrett Brown

            Ah, so he’s half Jewish. His father was the Frenchman. With all the perks you get today for even being half Jewish, I would declare myself a Jew as well if I had the opportunity.

            Did you just thumb up your own comment? Lol.

          • scottthestrategerist

            Not everyone who is partially, or even fully, Jewish identifies with the Jewish community. I have a friend who is a Jew banker and he asked me about joining the Klan! (Apparently I’m his window into the world of whiteness.) He married out and doesn’t care about Judaism and has been alienated from them because of the Leftism which is basically synonymous with the organised Jewish community.

            In contradistinction to this, Claremont identifies as Jewish. He’s a Jew under Jewish law, spent time living in Israel – on a Kibbutz no less – and clearly identifies as Jewish. My problem with him is that he subtly pushed Jewish themes in “The Uncanny X-Men,” and he used his great writing skills to push egalitarianism. Again, Stan Lee only created mutants as a plot device because he was clearly running out of plausible concepts, even within the world of comics, for how people would get superpowers.

            Oh, and I always up-vote the best comments, and my comments are always the best!

          • scottthestrategerist

            P.S. Actually, in this discussion, MekongDelta69’s Captain Africa is the best! I’ll probably copy and paste it on to other forums and then claim I wrote it. I just can’t abide by someone writing something good and it not being me.

          • Garrett Brown

            That seems to be very few of them though. And it’s as if they only want to venture out if they didnt make it within the tribe. Then like everyone else they attempt to feed off of whites.

          • scottthestrategerist

            Hard to say. I’ve seen my shares of Jews who just integrated into society, and for them, being Jewish was just an extraction, like saying, “I’m Irish,” or, “I’m German.” Yes, the organised Jewish community is absolutely the enemy of white people. Yes, the vast majority of Jews go along with their community, in large part because they’re told from the time they’re toddlers that whites are out to get them, “another Hitler” is just around the corner, whites will turn on you on a dime, there’s no reason for it, it’s “just because” and has NOTHING to do with Jewish advocacy of policies that are harmful, if not murderous and even genocidal, for whites, including miscegenation, nonwhite immigration, abortion, homosexuality, speech restrictions like “hate speech/crime,” gun control, etc. Similarly, there’s no “conspiracy” that made the vast majority of blacks advocate for Trayvon Monster. They simply recognised their racial interest and pursued it and were uninterested in countervailing or even indisputable facts to the contrary.

    • Garrett Brown

      Xmen has been ruined since it’s inception. A rather poor comic book from marvel.

  • JackKrak

    If “it’s 2014 and we shouldn’t care what color he is”, etc. then why don’t we just keep him white?

    And just as an aside – how many overtly patriotic black people have met in your life?

    • baldowl

      Zero. Zilch. They hate this country and all it stands for, even with one of their own in the head office.

    • Sick of it

      I’ve lived around black people my whole life and only know a few. They’re often badly treated by other blacks.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Actually, more than a few, who serve with my career military husband. But no civilians.

      • JackKrak

        Yes, in the military you will find some – I’ve had the same experience. But they are very much the exception to the rule and you’re right about civilians.

      • Garrett Brown

        Oh? They’re on the front lines risking their lives for this country?

        • Spikeygrrl

          Not the civilians. Duh.

          • Garrett Brown

            Not blacks in general.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Except the military ones.

          • Garrett Brown

            Again, where are all these blacks on the front lines? I think you’re on the wrong site. Show me proof of these magical negro warriors. Where are pictures of a bunch of blacks in the vanguard of infantry?

          • Spikeygrrl

            Get a clue: One needn’t be infantry to serve on the front lines.

            You betcha my husband and those he serves with (which I specified in my original post) are U.S. Navy “Docs” (aka “corpse-men”: combat/trauma medics who specifically train and deploy with U.S. Marine Corps units) are out there on the front lines, ensuring that as many wounded Marines as possible get home in one piece.

            All Docs must pass the same standards regardless of race or ethnicity. So if I were you, bleeding-out in some Middle East hellhole and screaming for a Doc, I’d be a lot less picky about who I’d “let” save my life.

          • Garrett Brown

            “One needn’t be infantry to serve on the front lines.”

            Unless you’re an IED sweeper or medic, yes. You most certainly do.

            Where are all these Navy negroes your husband soerved with? Show them. Porve your uneducated statements true.

            Show pictures of all these black doctors in the middle east lol, where is this fantasy land? Are there unicorns there as well?

          • Spikeygrrl

            I SAID medic. Twice. As far as posting personal photos, you know as well as I do that it’s not possible here. So please, use this opportunity to get in your last licks because I am SO over your deliberate pretense of not understanding what I am saying.

            Go on now. Have the last word.

          • Garrett Brown

            You didn’t say anything, you typed it. You don’t need to post personal photos, I asked for any photos of numerable blacks fighting on the front lines. I asked that because I knew it would win me the debate, because it’s impossible for you to do.

            Blacks are cowards, and you’re a delusional egalitarian.

          • Spikeygrrl

            YOU MOST CERTAINLY DID ask for personal photos! What good would it have done to send you public-domain images?! Those can be grabbed off of any staged/cast recruitment poster or military-community website.

            Have you, yourself ever served? I’m betting not…but if you have, thank you for your service, and you ought to know better than to slander your brothers in arms, past, present, and future.

            If you have not served, do us all a favor and STFU.

          • Garrett Brown

            “YOU MOST CERTAINLY DID ask for personal photos! ”

            Nope. So, still no proof og your magical negro army? Only immature ad hominems and more incorrect information.

            Blacks are not my brothers lol, that’s disgusting. I’m not a christian egalitarian like you.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Wrong again. I’m not a Christian, I’m an atheist. And you have not served so you have no clue what is and is not true of our nation’s Armed Forces. Have a nice life, and goodbye.

          • Garrett Brown

            An atheist, egalitarian that can’t provide any proof of her claims lol. This is golden.

  • baldowl

    These things always backfire, and Marvel knows it. It’s just a marketing gimmick. (They’re killing off Wolverine, too–riiiiiiight.) In a year or so, Steve Rogers will be back in the Captain America costume, and Thor will be a man again, probably just in time for the release of the “Avengers” sequel.

    • connorhus

      Agreed. They have done stuff like this before and it backfired. Of course they never will admit it but it will come back. They will simply start a new title like “Original Cap America” or “Wolverine Back to Life” Or something and then let their experiment fade away.

  • Patriot’s Notebook

    Let them make the Black Panther a white guy and see what happens.

    • Let them even make a movie that shows Martin Lither King as the misogynist, communist, plagiarist adulterer he really was. And throw in the fact that he was too much of a chicken to get on the Trailways buses with the communist “freedom riders”.

      We’re supposed to “shrug off” this “stuff”, while if their skins were any thinner, they’d lose blood and internal organs.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        How about MLK, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, etc. played by Whites?

        If Jackie Gleason and Art Carney – and other traditionally White characters – can be morphed into blacks, then what’s wrong with casting Whites in black roles??

  • Truthseeker

    Could anything be more symbolic of our dispossession?

  • I don’t think a large percentage of blacks even read comic books, so what’s the point other than to shove another Bantu hero down our throats? Come to think of it, I don’t think blacks read much of anything, comics or otherwise. Oh sure, there are exceptions, but blacks are not known to be a very well-read race of people. They prefer their tribal music known as ‘rap.’

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      “read” is the operative word.

      • evilsandmich

  • 4321realist

    Hahahaha!

    Black, eh?

    Gee, I wonder if the dreg’s author thinks he’s contributing toward the betterment of the country by creating a fictional character who represents a member of the population who can barely read or write and can’t do much math at all?

    Too, if this is a reality-based figure, will we see him lift items when he goes into a store, rape white women, and mug elderly men and women, as we have seen on videos and read about on the US Dept. of Justice’s web site?

    And will we see him fight the Mafia who will make him an offer he can’t understand?

    No race has as many disgustingly revolting do-gooders in it who live in the land of OZ but whites. Nobody.

      Oh, and ugh,,, your last sentence. Is Absolutely Dead On, My Friend! And that fact is a damn shame, to say the least. The White children of America are openly taught to despise themselves in the brain washing facilities we call school. I say it undoubtably rises to the level of race based child abuse. But,,, to oppose such a thing while White would surely be racist,,, or ughhhh,,,,, or at least that's what I was taught in school anyways!

    Such nonsense will stop when Whites refuse to go to Black oriented movies. Once Hollywood stops making big dollars, the industry will change.

    Personally, I try to avoid movies with Blacks or any non-Whites in them. It’s not always easy, but it is much more pleasant to watch movies with my own kind.

    • SoulInvictus

      If they’re making a movie with a black Cap, it’ll tank. Comics will go for gimmicks like that for an attempt at short term novelty sales boosts, but Hollywood knows very well people prefer watching white heroes.

  • LIBERTYSINCURSION

    This is a good example of dispossession. They can, and do create “super hero” characters of all sorts. Some of whom are black, some of whom are Asian, some are women, Hispanic and some are even gay. There’s no shortage of comic book heroes with these kinds of backgrounds. So why change an extremely famous, White character, into a black character? Why not just create another black super hero? Because it’s not about diversity, it’s all about dispossession. And why pick both the iconic Captain America, and the blonde haired blue eyed Nordic God Thor, who will unbelievably be emasculated and changed into a women < What are you thinking Marvel. )? One word, DISPOSSESSION!

    People might think it's pretty ridiculous to actually care what some comic cook does with it's characters, and to be honest I really don't care about comic books, at all. However, I see this move not as just a character change, but as a message, a message of our times. In my opinion it's a simple reflection of societies targeting of White men for dispossession, disownment and ultimately replacement. However, the jokes on them, cause we ain't going anywhere. We have more respect for ourselves and our history than to allow ourselves to be dethroned from our forefathers inheritance.

  • Dave West

    Yeah sure a black Captain America may not be my first choice, but with all the current and impending future problems happening in this country, the race of the mythical superhero is at the bottom of my list of battles to fight or care about.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      It’s indicative of what is being shoved down our – especially our children’s throats.

      In California, it is now mandated that “gay issues” will be taught starting in grade K. Some of the titles on the reading list are: “Daddy’s New Roommate,” “Daddy Marries His Roommate” – (Ken) – and “King and King.”

      It is end times, Dave, when homosexuality is promoted by the government, media and schools as vastly desirable over heterosexuality.

      I am reminded of this quote by Philip K. Dick, who some believe to be the Greatest Author Ever.

      In my writing I even question the universe; I wonder out loud if it is real, and I wonder out loud if all of us are real.

      —Philip K. Dick.

      • Philip K. Dick wrote “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, which for reasons unknown was named “Bladerunner” in movie form.

    The superhero should be renamed captain afro-merica. I predict the movie will be a box office bomb.

  • Guest

    These are important archeytpes in the American collective unconscious and probably do represent a profound shift in group awareness. On the surface these changes seem trivial but they are probably not trivial. Boys will grow up with these potent new images in their awareness. Making Thor a woman is quite a telling symbol for how white men are viewed. Bubba had better get out of the bar and start studying math and physics since those are some of the few areas which will always have white, male heroes.

  • willbest

    People need to stop getting all uppity about what happens in comic books. The Thor thing is a bit different because they seem to be magically turning Thor female. Steve Rodgers didn’t somehow magically become black. He is temporarily out of commission and somebody is taking over the mantle. If memory serves both Buckey and Punisher have had a go being Captain America in the past. This time it happens to be the Falcon, who was a diversity creation, but back in the 60’s.

    The writer/editor probably already has the transition back to Steve Rodgers outlined after a half dozen stories of Falcon as Capt. America.

    • Mason Gull

      The article states that Steve Rodgers is now 90 years old. He’ll keep his position as the Captain in another series, but I think it can safely be assumed that he won’t be returning in this story arc.

      I agree that the event itself isn’t such a big deal, but it is a bit annoying that Marvel has chosen to make a big media event, and that the editor is saying that “It’s about time.”

      • willbest

        Well he has always been 90 years old, it is just that his powers have been taken away from him (which is assuredly a temporary state).

        As for why Marvel is doing the PR blitz. Its free advertising in places that ordinarily wouldn’t give what happens in comic books press.

    Say it ain’t so!!

    Hey PC superheroes: See you in the unemployment line!!

  • Bryce Armstrong

    Ill say the same thing about this as I did a few days ago about Glenn Beck, Why now? Marvel is a totally depraved company. This isnt even the first time they pulled this stunt (the last time was to screw an elderly man out of his royalties).

    and I havnt even mentioned their stance on incest.

  • TruthBeTold

    In other comic news, Archie was killed by a pro-gun manic who killed a gay vet speaking out on gun control:

    Can you say agenda?

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      The Guardian:

      Archie steps in front of a shot aimed at his friend Kevin Keller, who just married his boyfriend and who is targeted for his “personal point of view.”

      Better to kill off “Archie” than pursue the sick PC- storyline further. I expect a swift demise for X-men, Thor, Ms. Marvel and any other PC-ized comic book characters.

  • Sharps Rifle

    Well, I’m done with anything Marvel.

    • Alexandra1973

      I’ve always been something of a DC person, but I gave up comics a long time ago.

  • scottthestrategerist

    So what’s wrong with Joseph Goebbels? You should have referenced Joseph Stalin! Stalin did only one good thing in his entire life: purging the ranks of the Commies. They STILL kvetch about it today! 🙂

    • RisingReich

      Good for you. Post still stands after an hour.

    • The Goebbels family murdered their own children.

  • Biff_Maliboo

    It’s very simple: If you’ve read any comic book other than Sgt. Rock (my cutoff point for this character is 1982), I don’t want you voting.

    • scottthestrategerist

      Terrific! That’s the very year G.I. Joe started! 🙁

      Ok, here’s something else to piss you off. We all know the slogan is, “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.” Well, they re-issued the 80s cartoons and dubbed in a replacement line, “G.I. Joe: A Real INTERNATIONAL Hero.” It’s not enough to make new cartoons w/ an internationalist bent. No, they have to go and re-do what was already there and change what already happened!

      • Biff_Maliboo

        That series peaked with the “Viper” episode.

  • RisingReich

    I wonder many a day what it must have been like to live in a country where it wasn’t a daily assault on one’s own mental health to get out of bed and deal with reality every day.

    I won’t and haven’t checked out, but kinda understand why less tough minds have. Humans aren’t meant to be besieged every waking moment of their lives.

    • One of the many advantages of having gone insane is that some of this “stuff” now actually seems entertaining. One can make fun of it. For instance, would my hypothetical “crazy cat lady” lesbian Wolverine have her own scratching post, or just share one with the cats?

  • RisingReich

    Who’s wasting money on comic books at this point?
    Go buy another 25 rounds instead. Your life might depend on it.

    • Evette Coutier

      Please send my to the gun shop where you can by 25 rounds for the price of a comic book!!!

      • Handload. I know I sound like a broken record on the subject, but that’s because I am a broken record on the subject. Handload.

  • Paleoconn

    That’s fine because the word America means nothing to me for many years now.

  • scottthestrategerist

    What about G.I. Joe from the 80s? Can I read that? I got kind of interested in them when the movie came out…

    • Biff_Maliboo

      Only the “Silent Snake Eyes” issue.

  • Evette Coutier

    At least it’s a better role model for black kids than Snoop Dog.

  • 4321realist

    At my house we don’t watch movies with a black playing the lead or a supporting role nor do we watch sports of any kind.
    Rush Limbaugh had a segment on yesterday that pointed out that a survey by the CDC concluded that altogether LGBT people are something like 2.9 % of the population, but the kids today thought these people comprised about 30 % of the population, because they are promoted so heavily by the radical leftist press and the cultural Marxist entertainment industry.
    He noted that the vast majority oppose most of what the left promotes, but it seems like everything they put out to advance their agenda makes it appear as if all of it is popular policy or thought and that the flakes, oddballs, and misfits are really a small minority.
    And, as many of us have known for years, that’s why the left has been able to advance its agenda so successfully.
    Nobody likes these dregs trying to impose their delusional do-gooderism on us, but they make it appear as if theirs is popular thought, just like the above dork tries to get us to believe that nobody in 2014 could care whether Captain Affirmative Action is black.

  • IstvanIN

    When I was a little kid my mother subscribed to Highlights for Children for us, the only other comic books I ever saw were in the barber shop (1960s: Archie, Superman), the occasional Mad Magazine (1970s) some kid had and of course the funny papers. So I am far from being an expert but I feel the simplest solution is simply to not buy the darn thing. No market, no magazine.

    I will now listen to “Sugar, Sugar” on the phono and drift back to another time.

  • MikeofAges

    Years ago, Michael Savage said, “I don’t want to see a 5’6″ Czech play Othello.” And neither do I. Debate continues over what Shakespeare meant by the idea of a Moor. But some parts call for a modicum of reality. In contemporary America, the part calls for a dark actor with a commanding presence. Today, Othello usually is played by a black man. Some actors have made interpreting Othello the apex of their career. Bill “Blacula” Marshall for one.

    The problem with a black Captain America is that there is no reality inherent in the idea. If you want a black mortal superhero who fights for good and the weak, give him own suit of clothes, please. It’s only fair.

  • Garrett Brown

    Wow… that’s my favorite super hero. He and the Punisher have been my favorite Marvel heroes since I was a child. I’m speechless.

    • TruthBeTold

      I saw the first Captain America movie on TV. I don’t watch many movies but I liked it. It was pure comic book but it worked. I really liked the WWII period setting.

      Then it ended with him waking up in the future to Samuel Jackson. What a shame.

      • Garrett Brown

        That’s the best Marvel movie that has come out. Everything else has pretty much been garbage exempt the first Ironman and the Incredible Hulk.

  • Easyrhino1

    I hear DC Comics is going to reveal the Superman is in reality a dual CIA/Mossad Agent and gay porn actor who will use his X-Ray heat vision to give free abortions to women.

  • Maybe this will provide that much needed positive role model for young black kids, preventing their turning to robbery, rape, murder and recreational attacks on White passersby, which of course is the first thing any kid will think of if he lacks fatherly guidance.

  • IKUredux

    So, what is surprising about this? Our entire culture and history is being re-written. And has been, for many years. We Whites are being swept into the dustbin of history. Fun Fact: Whites are behind the move to sweep us into the dustbin of history. No coloreds would have been smart enough to even think of propagating this crap. In another three hundred years, George Washington will have been part black and Indian(assuming he hasn’t been written out all together). Betsy Ross, having designed and sewn the first flag, died at Yorktown, fighting the British, Ninja style. Betsy, of course, was known as a proud and fierce lesbian. These so-called progressives are dying to do away with Thanksgiving. They hate Christmas, and despise the Fourth of July. The people in control of this, OUR country, hate it with every fiber of their being. We owe them NOTHING!!! Let the spirit of 1776 reign again.

    • frank

      you can’t even find a Christmas card that says Merry Christmas let alone a religious theme, everything is happy holidays.. well I do not celebrate kwanza or Hanukkah,, my family celebrated Christmas for almost two thousand years and I want to keep it that way

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    He would sink like a stone.

  • SoulInvictus

    Now Captain America’s powers can include the ability to lower property values in a single bound…

    • De’Marquise Elkins

      He’s also a leader in the DNC Plantation.

  • SoulInvictus

    If you never saw the Punisher short film “Dirty Laundry”, it’s worth looking up.

  • Evette Coutier

    Actually, I think y’all are being unfair on this. It’s about time black kids have a role model that is not a pump, criminal, gangster, race baiting fraud, or rapper. It’s high time there is a black hero that is patriotic, respects the law, and actually takes baths.

    • HE2

      Heck yeah, Evette. I bet this guy even has china and silverware that he did not nick!
      That is role model class.

    • I guess that leaves our current White House squatters right out.

  • De’Marquise Elkins

    Captain America is really good at stealing and knockout game now.

  • That Will Smith role was an utter pity, because that movie would have otherwise been OK. I liked the giant, mechanical spider.

  • James Mayer

    “It’s about time,” says Marvel executive editor Tom Brevoort of the change. “In 2014, this should be a thing that we shrug off, it shouldn’t be seen as revolutionary, but it still feels exciting.”

    There’s an expression doing the rounds online: ‘There’s nothing dumber than a white anti-white.’ I find this true.

  • David Ashton

    Disappointing. I thought they might have used Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. And as for a female Thor with the usual mammary headlights from trad comix, why not a one-legged Muslim in a headscarf? Captain Black America is already in the White House anyway – who wants a fantasy magic negro when you’ve got one already, nome sane?

  • Thomas

    Sooo much hate against nerds here, in one breath you say they don’t have an identidty and buy multikulti without asking, in the next you say these multikulti projects fail anyhow because white “nerds” won’t buy them. Some of the “nerds” I know are the most racist people on Earth.

  • antiquesunlight

    Is this a joke? Thor as a woman? They already used to have a Hulk woman that nobody cared about. What idiots. They’ll switch back as soon as the sales plummet.

  • Kit Ingoldby

    An irrelevant, dying franchise tries to grab a brief moment of publicity with some faked up ‘controversy’.

    Sad really.

  • rechill

    Please, these comic book writers ran out of ideas 25 years ago. They’ll try anything now just to get attention.

  • MooTieFighter

    It continues. Our local prom queen was black, our class president was black, our current US president is black, our attorney general is black. None of these would have been in these positions if they were white. All of those I listed are some of the weakest leaders EVER. Our prom queen was pregnant and elected out of pity, our class president in college was at the VERY BOTTOM of the intellectual barrel, and I don’t have 2 comment on the last two. Our country has put P.C. ahead of real accomplishment. It’s so hard to watch. All I can say is that they are going to have to share these false accomplishments with the Hispanic crowd, now.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      It would be humorous if it weren’t so sad and pathetic. We hold these pieces of sh_t up for adoration and it ends up making the whole dang country look ridiculous and stupid.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Token worship is a scary business. Just as some periods in time were The Bronze Age, The Copper Age, The Renaissance, The Age of Enlightenment–I think the western civilization century beginning in the 1960s will be called:

      The Age of Tokenism.

  • Rick

    The new Thor is a WOMAN? WTH??? Is nothing safe from this madness anymore?

    The only thing I watch on TV are fights, and that’s to become a better fighter so I can defend my family.

  • DLRisVH

    Marvel is run mostly run by hispanics nowadays Axel Alonso, Joe (Jose) Queseda, But this Alonso clown seems to have a deep hatred for White males.

    (Edit) That picture of Cap is very disturbing BTW!

  • Anglokraut

    Psylocke is an odd story–she was born a blonde British girl, and sister of Captain Britain, if I remember my origin story correctly. But she got in a psychic battle of some kind, and her consciousness and abilities were absorbed by an female Asian assassin. Sort of like Rogue absorbing Carol Danvers/Miss Marvel. At least Carol Danvers eventually was restored, and Rogue became an X-Man.

  • Ringo Lennon

    Will he be seen eating fried chicken or a slice of watermelon?

    • 4321realist

      ” Funny thing, I don’t mind black kids idolizing a black Santa Claus or a black Jesus.”

      It’s disgusting really.

      Rejecting traditional figures like these clearly shows that blacks must remake our folk and religious figures into someone more like themselves in order to be acceptable to them. It reveals not only a bias that refuses to accept another race’s popular figures as they have been depicted for hundreds of years, but it shows how abysmally biased they are.

      And remaking the figures into black ones is based in arrogance and a propensity for stealing figures and historical achievements as their own, because they have none, just as they try to do with many things, like their claims that Egyptians were black and Greece stole all their discoveries and intellectual accomplishments.

      And they’re so stupid they don’t understand what hypocrites they show themselves to be when they run their mouths like that.

      They think of themselves as the greatest thing to ever happen to mankind, rather than what they truly are, which is the absolute scourge of the human race that is locked into a hunter/gatherer stage of evolution.

  • LHathaway

    “In 2014, this should be a thing that we shrug off, it shouldn’t be seen as revolutionary, but it still feels exciting”.

    His superpower is dissipating imaginary racism. Unless he’s posting here on AmRen, that’s the only super power he’ll be able to use.

    • Sick of it

      The real funny thing about all of this – How can he be Captain America, since he does not have the strength, the reflexes, or tactical abilities of Captain America?

  • Sick of it

    Spider-man is my favorite. Always has been.

  • IstvanIN

    An entire STEREO system at that. I have copy of sugar sugar that was cut out from the back of a cereal box.

  • Mike Lane

    This won’t last. As a man who grew up reading comic books extensively I can tell you that no one ever reads about blacks. Even if the audience is weak white liberal males- they just don’t. A couple years ago DC comics introduced a black Batman-esque guy named “Batwing”. Sales were so poor they had to redesign the character’s costume so you couldn’t see his face or skin. Marvel also just announced they are making Thor a woman (As if they didn’t bastardize Norse mythology enough). Female heroes are the same as minority characters: They just don’t sell. The bestselling female heroes are Wonder Woman and Batgirl, and even they don’t sell all that well. Never have. Let them embrace their PC idiocy. It’ll be their downfall.

    • ThreePercenter

      Spawn was black,of course he was burnt to a crisp,so no one really could tell.

  • What was the alternative? Those were little kids, who deserved a chance.

  • Sick of it

    Plant explosives on every road. Detonate when Far Eastern savages walk over it and sick dogs on the survivors. Launch V-2 rockets into every Russian city. Rinse, repeat. The Germans were far nicer than people will ever admit. You cannot be nice to foreigners who try to take everything you have and destroy your people.

  • kikz2

    ………………all the more reason NOT to $upport your kids interest in tribe ‘fantasy superhero’ comix publications… don’t we get enough of this type crap through the msm?

    maybe he’ll have a side kick.. yidkid? together they can stomp eeeeeevil YT! eyeroll……………….

  • Magician

    Why not simply create another, completely; separate Super Hero if the producers want to be politically correct that badly.

    When Iron Man 2 came out, the guy inside Iron Man, Tony Stark, stayed white, but he gained a sidekick, named “War Machine” who was a black guy.

    That is something I will agree to live with.

    On another note, I just looked it up and it is amazing how much profit some Hollywood movies make

    Iron Man 3 –

    Budget – $200M
    Revenue – $121M

    Disney Frozen –

    Budget – $150M
    Revenue – $126M

    And expect some hardcore liberals around the country to start demanding other famous Marvel Superheros to be substituted with blacks…

  • De’Marquise Elkins

    When there is stealing and robbing to do, there is black Captain America.

    This comic will fly off the shelf,not by actual purchasing,it will be the #1 shoplifted comic book of all time.

  • MikeofAges

    No law against cultural criticism either. From a personal point of view, it might be better to free in multicultural society. But if you are interested in the continuance of your own kind, well, your society might emerge from an era of dictatorship intact. But with a new population base, it will always and forever be something different. In a long enough time, a new culture and a new race, type or breed, however you put it.

    Extinction is forever.

  • Steven Bannister

    If Marvel feels that “this should be a thing we shrug off” then why make the change in the first place? Why change an existing character whose roots and history are already established? Why not just create a new black character?

  • Magician

    Female Wolverine who appears to be a bit Hispanic?

  • ConservativePrincess

    What’s next, Wonder Woman is a lesbian? smh

  • Michael Mason

    Don’t you just hate how these liberal pansies always say stuff like “in 2014, this shouldn’t be seen as revolutionary” or “it’s the 21st century, don’t be so ignorant.”
    It’s precisely because of the information we have available in this day and age that I know racial equality is a fluke. It’s because of history, geography, and anthropology that I can observe that black Africans have not once created or maintained a civilization.
