    I mean, to an extent, I do believe mutants were also a metaphor for Communists. The paranoia over how 'anyone can be a mutant' isn't far off from the paranoia of the Cold War over how anyone could...

    I was keeping up with everything on DBE at the time, and James Wong was on board with pretty much everything the studio wanted. But even if he wasn't, there are other examples I could have used, like...

    To play devil's advocate a bit, while I agree that stories surrounding issues such as discrimination need to have authenticity to them coming from the writer and that one of the ways to bring...

    You're probably right. I doubt SpecHarry received much love from his mother either, given how similar he turned out to 616 Harry.

    Also, if Norman and Emily's relationship was like that of a...

    Wait, that's right! I totally forgot he was planning to cast Marina Sirtis as Emily.

    What I also find interesting is that SpecNorman doesn't strike me as a guy that would love his wife the way...

    The X-Men haven't been a 1:1 metaphor for any real-life marginalized identity since the Claremont days. Claremont turned them into a metaphor for outcasts in general and used the civil rights...

    1. But not from all cops, and his relationship with the police will never entirely be non-antagonistic. And that is good because there is a lot you can do with that that you can't do with...

    Currently reading Matt Fraction's Hawkeye, and I'm even more convinced than I was before that Spider-Man wouldn't work as an Avenger.

    Reason I say this is because Fraction's take on Hawkeye is in...

    Really curious how Emily Osborn would have turned out. Greg Weisman is great at writing female villains (see Demona) and the show has a reputation of being Spidey's equivalent to BTAS. Emily might...

    I love this issue. It's total nonsense, but it's fun nonsense.

    The first time I read the title of this thread, my first thought was thought was immediately to think of All Might.

    In all seriousness, if All Might doesn't prove there is nothing 'dated' or...

    Even though this is a Marvel thread, Grant Morrison has arguably articulated the appeal of superheroes better than anyone else. They are like gods in the sense that they represent an eternal idea...

    Agreed. Jefferson Davis still too much to call a working-class black dude.

    I think the initial idea was that he hates superheroes and that's why his name is Jefferson Davis, but I never heard Bendis confirm one way or the other.

    No disrespect towards diversity and the idea that Peter can be anyone, but this is a myth. There is no evidence Stan intended for Peter to be Jewish the way Ben Grimm was always intended to be.

    It's amazing how many new and creative superpowers Horikoshi is able to come up with given we are so deep into superhero culture and have so many superheroes by now. I would love for Marvel and DC to...

    I don't think there is a single definitive Spider-Man story. My all-time favorite is The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man, though. There hasn't been a single time reading it when I haven't teared up. I...

    The 90s animated series is very flawed and hasn't aged well, but I think I'll always have a soft spot for it for getting me into Spider-Man. I'll also make the sruument that while overall it is very...

    To be fair, this is Peter in every continuity. Harry being generally regarded as Spider-Man's best friend is one of the most ironic things in all of Spider-Man mythos.

    The 90s cartoon got me into Spider-Man first, but Bendis' Ultimate Spider-Man and The Spectacular Spider-Man turned me into a fan as we know them (as in reading comics, going on forums, etc.).

    I'm generally not a fan of alternative costumes just because I think the original one is pretty much perfect. It's got the right balance of red and blue, silly and creepy-looking. There is a reason...

    It's weird, especially the eyes. It looks like a Spider-Man that wants to hunt me down and use me as prey.

    I don't know if those examples count as the creators not respecting those characters (or rather the fans). Bruce doesn't get disrespected by Burton the way Cyclops does in X3, where you're just not...

    "Respect the character" is an indirect way of saying "respect the fans". If a writer comes along and ignores character development and/or treat the character as utter ****, it can come off as...
