    We definitely have. I’m pretty sure we’ve both gotten into arguments in threads like that.

    There is nothing classy or camp about Wildchild. When it comes to being the Emma of the team, he needs to get in line.

    He's a straight-haired African who turns blue when he uses his powers. It's a toss up. It's almost like whoever created him didn't want readers to think of Maggot as black.

    Anyways...on the diversity front, I miss Greystone, Fixx, and Archer. I believe that Greystone was Maori. There aren't that many Polynesian mutants.

    There's potential there for him to be visible as a black man, unfortunately in his few appearances since coming back to life he's only been shown blue skinned.
    It's more disappointing that he's been written as some kind of altruistic hero type made of steel will. Maggott is the Gambit of the early 2000's, he deserves some flamboyance as originally written!

    Yep. Similar with Darwin. He may not have been created as a Black Hispanic (or Latino) man, but when someone did establish him as black, they screwed up. lol Because now the character is very racist.

    Overall, the X-Office could use some improvement with the minority representation.

    wildHeart was a unification of his sexual disparities. The leather, the corsets, the face like Sarah Jessica Parker bleached stark white and hair like Albion-At best, he's like the lost Wyngarde sibling.

    I fully expect the cast to be rotating. It has a suicide squad vibe to it.

    That means getting backbone and stop letting youtube trolls who don't buy or support comics tell you what to do.

    Yes it's a HUGE sign that once all those nasty POC lead books were gone and marginalizing various POC along the way (hi Storm), books like Immortal Hulk & even Carol Danvers improved in sales, reviews and sudden you could talk about marvel without threads being derailed.

    The trolls vanished.

    Nobody noticed those trolls never went after all the OTHER companies with POC as leads? Some that are doing what those trolls claimed Marvel did-despite the fact they never red them.

    A book called Kick Azz with a black woman as the lead will have more solo issues than any black female lead book between the big two not named Moon Girl. Who will NOT have her movie or tv show.
    A book starring a black guy called Rivers of London is on it's 7th trade. Miles, Panther & Cage can boast more.

    Why does it seem like Marvel would pander to trolls who don't support them? Black Panther & Miles opened the door for minority representation.

    I could careless about a 50 issue Synch run-give me 6 good issues and call it a day.

    Stop overexposing guys like Emma & Logan-because all their books do are pack BINS in the long run. Emma need one GREAT book not 5 mediocre ones.

    Because folks are noting the lack of minorities in meaningful roles. Don't have them go to Image or vault to get it.

Itís a problem that should never stop being talked about. But then again, Iíve involved myself in conversation like this where they were only concerned with ďstraight black maleĒ representation. Hopefully you can see why thatís super shitty.

    If you look at my posts, I have never just said straight Black men need to be represented. Where is that in what I said... I more than understand that queer black, non binary Black and Black women are not also not represented. I merely stated and focused in on the issue of Black Male representation within X men.

    Furthermore, I always in addition to asking for Synch, have always wanted Monet, Tempo, Sway, Risque, Prodigy, Warpath, Karma , Shola, Hub, Neal Sharra, Hijack and many other characters of color to be featured in the books.However sometimes honing in on one issues gives you the ability to connect it to larger structural and systematic issues.
