    I don't think that is Unpopular and/or Controversial, still you are right.

    But how does the metaphor affect that? Would they be less diverse without it?

    Things are good, but they can be better. And tbh, I don't even think it's good.

    I'm not sure if street-level vigilantism works anymore, at least in the way it did. From what I know, violent crime has decreased, and even at that, you're not likely to be mugged by somebody. A lot of street crime as portrayed in comics comes from a classist interpretation, at least from what I've seen, and Idk if there's enough of it to justify masked vigilantes regularly beating up criminals. There needs be to more understanding of why crime happens.

    There is some level of underreported crime, but that affects marginalized communities. Those communities are overpoliced yet under protected. But Idk if Marvel or DC wants to go there. However, I don't think it's like the street crime portrayed in the comics.

    1.Hell's Kitchen has become a cheap imitation of Gotham city, with a dude with no superpowers whose only gimmick is that he is fat and bald yet somehow inexplicably manages to be a big shot in the criminal underworld and then became Mayor in a place like NYC that should eat someone like him alive if he tried to run for public office in the place of the fun interesting villains. Much like Gotham City I don't care if the bad guys take it over.

    2. Marvel has made some attempts but it's still too New York Centric and that is never going too change.

    3. I still think Chicago would have been a great city for Miles.

    Marvel should definitely move out of New York. Go to the west Coast, Canada or Mexico, or somewhere else

    Aren't their enough super heroes in Vancouver already?
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I believe that was a joke. Kirby101 was possibly commenting on the CW filming there. Most of the DC CW shows were filmed there.

    The Avengers have some of the most dysfunctional relationships that I've seen, and I would arguably be happy if the disbanded permanently.

    You are talking about a certain relationship or a few? Just asking.

    The legacy characters allows fans to experience the power set, initial premise, and themes of the hero through the lens of a more relatable (to some) or just a different character. I am not a big fantasy reader, Thor has never really interested me. A woman with cancer taking on the name of Thor to fight on earth sounds much more interesting to me. Encouraging these kinds of ventures in comics is how you get new fans of the characters.

    Dysfunctional relationships are the bread and butter of MU human relations, to be perfectly honest. So far only Luke Cage is pillar of stability . All the others range from "aww man" to "paiinn" to "I be friend spiderman, date matt maurdock and joined the X-men, while occasionally standing for the ff when they are on vacation" aka " genocide mode"

    Honestly, the most controversial opinion I hold is that I think Steve's decision to go back to the past/create an alternate reality is super fucked up if you look past the surface-level Disney-esque happily ever after.
