    I'll admit I wasn't thinking of Riri at the time, mostly because a lot of teen geniuses are known to skip grades. Still, considering she also referenced Shuri from Black Panther, whom Riri did team...

    Yeah, if they were being rational and sensible about it. That said, in the MU, a lot of superheroes and supervillains have been the product of government attempts at creating superhuman operatives,...

    Yeah, they did, given that the Champions started from the fallout of yet another bout of superpowered infighting between the superheroes, which led the founding members to become disillusioned with...

    Yeah, the Prime Sentinels were literally brainwashed, insofar as being stripped of their personalities and wills, because what would "weapons" need with personalities or free will? And these were the...

    Hmm, those are very good points you've raised in your posts here so far. Definitely something worth thinking about.

    Good points, although funny enough, wasn't vigilantism, superpowered or not, wrapped in the idea of fighting to attain justice for those who couldn't count on the law to get them that justice, for...

    Superheroes do fight bigoted villains, especially if they're X-Men, whose entire rogues gallery that isn't fellow mutants consists of bigots who want to annihilate them just for existing as mutants....

    Thanks for the recommendation. I've been meaning to do that. The question I'm trying to ask, though, concerns whether or not superheroes are all that well-equipped to fight bigotry by winning the...

    I would say that a lot of the issue is that ultimately, superheroes solve their problems by punching things --- so what happens when they run into something they can't just punch, like the hatred and...

    Not a bad idea in theory, but given how often Sentinels have been fielded against mutants in the past, rather bad optics if the U.S. government was ever hoping to build more positive relations with...

    Maybe it's a new/recent crime, as opposed to his past crimes that he would have already received amnesty for as a citizen of Krakoa. Could be something that happens at the Hellfire Gala, which might...

    Because a lot of, if not most or all, bigots are ultimately small-minded, myopic cowards, so they'll pick the ones who can't or won't fight back instead of the ones who can or will give them their...

    Yeah, intimidating and brutalizing the press is one of the 14 major points of fascism, after all.
