    Default The most racist retcon in all of Marvel Comics history.

    Bendis' retcon on Stark's parents, is extremely racist and offensive against the half Latin people.

    Tony Stark's parents have always been a Latin woman and a man of probable Jewish origin who helped defeat the Nazis, which is not just a movie thing, it's true in the comics as well.

    But, thanks to this racist retcon, Tony Stark is not the oldest and most prominent Marvel's mixed race super hero anymore, because now he is the son of an white woman with an actual Nazi! Why did Marvel decided to cancel Tony Stark's Latin heritage, replacing it with the most racist they could think of? This is totally unacceptable!

    Am I the only person who is against this atrocious retcon? Tell me that I'm not alone in this.

    Clearly, you have never heard of Snap Wilson.

    And clearly, you don't know that Snap Wilson was not a racist retcon, but a racist origin that was eventually retconed.

    Snap Wilson is the exact reverse of the All-White Tony Stark, who, as I have explained in detail, is the replacement of an openly progressive origin, with an offensive racist one.

    But, as is typical of men, when a woman complains about something, her arguments are deconstructed and labeled as a result of ignorance about what she is talking about.

    Quite honestly neither have I. Maria isn't used exclusively by Latinas. I've seen it for other nationalities. If you want to get technical, Maria is the female equivalent for the Roman name Marius. So you will see it used for Italian women, Greek women, Polish women, etc.

    Her bio doesn't mention her heritage as being Spanish She was born into a wealthy family in the Southamptons and her maiden name is Maria Collins.

    Wait, when did Bendis do this?

    If it's in the recent Avengers comics, that's Aaron and not Bendis.

    Bendis doesn't work at Marvel any more.
