    Exclamation Superheroes are PROBLEMATIC! Time Magazine Calls Them 'Cops With Capes' ...?!

    A Time Magazine writer calls Superheroes are PROBLEMATIC because they are white.
    Batman is white and is problematic but things like black panther is problary is ok but anything that has white characters in comics is not ok.
    Do they not realize this kind of change is going to destroy the comic industry if it hasn't already? it proves that these people werent really fans of the comics but potical activists trying to force a agenda onto readers.

    This is starting to look like nothing more then the hatred of whites in general by the mainstream. Which is not surprising.

    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    At which point will Americans realize that creating an unaccountable institution that is able to pass its liability on to tax-payers is immoral and attracts sociopaths?

    Marvel and DC better not succumb to this woke bullsht. No way are they going to turn every white superhero they've created black.

    DC Comics were already planning to create a 5G series of Batman they already had plans to switch Bruce to a minority character for now it seems those plans had stopped if they try to push the agenda again. I dont think fans would like this at all.

    Anybody here should think Batman should have stayed Bruce Wayne and focused his intellect on building his family's company and employing people rather than beating the $#@! out of the alternately employed and mentally ill.

    The most useful part of American superheroes is that they go home after they win the fight rather than becoming king, which is what Beowulf and every other non-american hero myth supposes.

    That might be the foundation of American exceptionalism, the strong retire after the fight and leave civil society to civilians. It certainly was the basis of non-interventionism.

    "A community in a harmonious paradise is threatened by evil; normal institutions fail to contend with this threat; a selfless superhero emerges to renounce temptations and carry out the redemptive task; aided by fate, his decisive victory restores the community to its paradisaical condition; the superhero then recedes into obscurity."

    The comics industry has already had the SJWs burn through it. Thats old news. Comic stores all died. Writers with talent now put their IP on kickstarter and sell directly. Good channel for commentary on that sort of thing:

    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
