LOL. I love how mere rational criticism of an example of overkill social engineering has not only been decried as racist, but also as special snowflake'esque outrage.
Especially as this whole thing is overt pandering to the socially engineered hyper-sensitive Special Snowflake Generation.
This issue isn't that it's a new character, the issue is that the teenage little girl 'just had to' replace the Iron MAN character.
The black teenage girl angle only further drives home the reality that this is SJW overkill, before factoring in how Iron Man's sidekick Iron Patriot / War Machine was given his own series long ago (is my understanding).
Also interesting in our little case study so far is how by merely doing this piece I'm being labelled as fanboy "nerd", which by the way is both stereotyping and bigoted.

You say it's pandering to the "hyper-sensitive Special Snowflake Generation". Yet you're the one whining & complaining about this non-issue because you apparently can't handle it.
That's what some of us are laughing at and/or calling you out for.

Oh that's right, by denying social engineering's existence, in this conversation you're an expert on the subject and we should all just go back to bed. And CNN is truth. And Santa Clause is real.
