    I think that part of the problem with hoping that the Republican senators might do the right thing and wait until after the election to place a new Justice is that I doubt the majority (or any?) of...

    Lunella Lafayette (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur)...

    Lunella Lafayette (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur) is also a pretty cool character. Her book is a bit different from the others because she is by far the youngest, but I enjoyed reading her stories.

    Ya, no one is to blame for the status quo of comics, the fact the popular and lasting characters exist in this state of flux where they reflect the styles and concerns of the modern day (be that 70s,...

    Ratings. You could be famous for an ancient prophesy that said you would destroy a man named Donald Trump, and he would not be able to stay away, if he thought it would boost his signal a bit.

    And...

    Oh, I don't know ... honestly, I feel like there was some ethnic drift going on with Apocalypse, even by the time they started filling in the Egyptian backstory stuff. I just recall that from his...

    True, it is bad with Monet ... probably even worse than with Roberto, she's a character I could see some fans not even realizing she was not always white.

    Similarly, one I feel like I never really...

    Meaning no offense, but if you tried and could not find factual references for your story, maybe resist the urge to recall it in such detail? I mean, between the cop, the council member and the son,...

    Aha, that makes sense ... nazi apologists are seen as nazi's. Thank you!

    What's an NA? I think Narcotics Anonymous, but guessing that's not what you meant.

    I really don't think you need to be some kind of religious nutter to see how saying people can pick out the undesirable traits they want to avoid in their kids is just a whole can of worms to open...

    Mighty Avengers counts for Blue Marvel, but I don't think the Ultimates were technically an Avengers team, despite being composed of (mostly) Avengers... wait, if the Young Avengers count, then...

    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.

    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...
