    Others have mentioned the X-Men, but I think probably the biggest example of a well-known superhero without a particularly iconic look is probably Kitty Pryde. Probably her most well-known look, at...

    That's just it, though ... if you're doing a story where Superman just can't find any other way, you're doing it wrong. Because the whole point of the character is supposed to be the highest example...

    That's just it tho, I feel like the only way to make these characters worse than if you played it straight would be if you created them in some lame attempt to be clever. It's just such low-hanging...

    Snowflake and Safespace are absolutely a bad idea. I mean, I get it ... automatically tons of free press, because people definitely noticed this, who otherwise probably would never have blinked as...

    Well sure, but likewise Miles didn't want to be Peter, Kamala didn't want to be Carol, and Sam didn't want to be Steve. They were just inspired by them, but there is also significance to the name....

    Yeah ... I mean, I suppose that if I read more stuff with her in it, I would eventually see some kind of drama to her, but as is, you're right -- she just seems a little too awesome, without the...

    Though they won't say so out loud, certainly not in mixed company, some people think the disparity is justified because minorities are in fact inferior. The worst of them really think it's a...

    Unlike Miles Morales, Kamala Khan, and Lunella Lafayette, America Chavez is one of the newer, more diverse young heroes that I can't say I'm a big fan of. Riri Williams unfortunately, too ... both...

    Yeah, unity is needed at this point, definitely ... I just don't know if, "I hope you realize how wrong you were for supporting Sanders!" is going to make that happen.

    I mean, what if it wasn't...

    Those comments are eating him alive for supporting Biden over Bernie. Pretty cool to see, honestly.

    Well, from a utilitarian moral perspective, the two questions you'd have to ask, to discern if exploiting their existence for profit is wrong, would be, 1) As no-longer-mortal beings, are they still...

    I think that what really sucks right now is that however strongly one may feel that either Bernie or Biden is such an incredibly terrible choice who cannot win, if the current delegate count is any...

    Trump didn't win Minnesota. But, looking at the numbers, it was closer than it ever should have been.

    I feel like it would be different if he had any reason to think his vote would actually have made a difference. As is, he gets to make the "principled" choice, without really making much difference...

    Can't argue that a solid plan would definitely be more reassuring, that he's not just talking pie in the sky, with absolutely no roadmap of how to get there ... but, at the same time, I think...

    I dunno about how to get Republicans to agree -- I mean, you probably can't get the vast majority, so it would really need to be the Dems, with maybe a few stray Republicans who could somehow be...

    Probably novelist, or some other kind of creative writer ... screenplays maybe, or possibly part of a team on a tv show with great characters? Thing is though, I don't have really any desire to be...

    Etiquette. Not to be a jerk about it or anything, but it just seems an odd instance of sounding a word out.

    Phil Urich, nephew of Ben Urich, was originally a heroic version of the Green Goblin ... but, I guess nobody is interested a heroic Goblin, so yeah, just became another bad one, pretty quickly.
