New Iron Man: Black, Female, And 15 Years Old

Postby NobleSavage » Wed Jul 06, 2016 3:51 pm

Her name is Riri Williams. She reverse-engineered her own version of the Iron Man battlesuit in her MIT dorm room. It's the latest in a series of moves that's slowly but steadily transforming the Avengers' roster into a super-group that more accurately reflects the world off of the comics page.First came Miles Morales, a black Latino kid who stepped into the role of Spider-Man. Next came Kamala Khan, a teenage Muslim from New Jersey who assumed the title of Ms. Marvel, and America Chavez, a Latina lesbian who adopted the name of Golden Age hero Miss America. Recently Sam Wilson, the former Marvel hero The Falcon, took over as Captain America (not for the first time). Two years ago, Jane Foster, the girlfriend of Marvel's resident God of Thunder, replaced him, becoming the female Thor.


Marvel scribe Brian Michael Bendis also reports that Namor, a.k.a. The Sub-Mariner, will rejoin the Avengers in the guise of a transgender, Wiccan mer-womyn who's half human, half killer whale, and "all punk rock." Bendis says Marvel is looking forward to the "edgier" Namor sparking LGBTQ conversations and clashes in musical taste among the Avengers.

Yeah, captain america should have been a native american, not a an african american.

What about MY cultural and racial sensitivities? Huh?

All my life, as a straight, privileged white male, I've looked at superheroes and seen other straight, privileged white males! Those superheroes reflected MY world!

If comic books were real, I'd be worried that a lesbian latina from the inner city wouldn't take a photon gamma blast to the chest just to save my Toyota... I mean, we'd both be fans of vagina, but I don't think that, in itself, is enough common ground.

Dammit Ron, if we can't bond over vagina love then the world is doomed!

Oh, and Superman is now Chinese. Because of course he is.

But DC claims it's not "doing diversity just for the sake of diversity." Nope. Not at all.

The Batmobile probably now sports rainbow window clings, and "Eat more kale" and "Namaste" bumper stickers.
