    I agree. Spider-Man and Daredevil are the local guys, but a lot of the other ones could operate elsewhere. At least Alpha Flight is based in Canada!

    He does a lot in one city.

    .
    Oh yeah.Just feel like comics in general need to realize that there is more to the world than USA and japan and russia.Also what do people think about the facts that both the avengers and the justice league call them defenders of earth or Earth's mightiest heros but are mostly comprised of USA citizens and lead by Captain America and Superman(Truth justice and the american way)

    And mostly White Americans at that. I think it should be "Truth, Justice and the Earth way!" More multinational and multiethnic representation would be a plus. Although that's improving nowadays.

    I know the director said he liked this series, but I kind of wish we had gotten to actually see that impact the film.

    It is because they are American characters created by American authors. Remember pre-World War II most major European countries had robust domestic film-making industries (France & Germany the biggest among them) Hollywood was but one of many. These industries never recovered.

    True, but that doesn't mean Marvel and DC can't have more international heroes

    Perhaps, but people write about what they know and what sells with the audience it is only natural. I don't think excluding international characters was even intentional back then it is like the joke I make about 80% (90% until the X-Men left) of Marvel's heroes calling NYC & its surrounding environs (Upstate New York) home.

    It probably wasn't intentional then. But now they can make effort to learn about other nations and cultures to make the comics more representative. At least get out of New York. If they can't go to London or Beijing, at least Houston or Vancouver or something
