So what is the point of changing the character?
Oh yeah, sell books.
Not going to work but whatever.

I didn't know that happened. I also didn't realize his real name is 'Thor Man'? Now that you mention it though, how does Odin's son Thor become a woman? Did Thor have a sex change operation?

Of all of these examples you mention, along with any others you know about, how many were changed in the last 5 years versus all before that? (serious question)

The new ideology now is "Political Correctness", and its central tenet is that white men are white devils whom represent the Patriarchy, and all across pop culture now we see this sort of thing going on.


To quote your messiah... WRONG!

The new ideology is anti-PC, built upon the myth that everyone is out to get YOU. To shut you up, erase you, relegate you to the corner, make you feel bad.

PUSSIES!

People on this side of the line the YOU drew have kept talking, kept shouting all the societal no-no's for years... through prison bars, fire hoses, burning crosses, lynch mobs, sexual assaults, physical assaults, actual laws against them... and you sit there crying about a fking comic book or whatever else the flavor of the day is.

You're disgusting.


The pussification of America marches on powered by PC progressives funded by blood monies from the George Soro's of the world. You are reacting like a good little pawn who aligned easily to their message. Let me guess, militant feminism?

That's ironic, seeing as this whole thread exists because Conservative Justice Warriors were triggered by something as petty as a comic book character. I thought conservatives prided themselves on being tough guys and "manly" men? They claim to be against being PC, then complain when someone says or does something that goes against your own conservative form of PC. All I see are a bunch of complaining snowflakes whining because times are changing and they can't handle it.

Hmm, it almost sounds sad when I put it like that...

I'm not a Conservative. Not being an SJW maniac doesn't mean somebody is a conservative. SJW's aren't the center of the universe. Many other groups (and even more individuals) exist besides just PC liberals and conservatives.

I wish people would quit reading so much into these things. Marvel like many many other companies like to expand their audience occasionally. In this case, teenage girls are the market. There simply aren't that many characters for girls to choose from, especially the ones from the big-screen. I mean, you could go with Rogue (a minor character) or Phoenix (Jean Grey), but she turned evil. And with DC having a reboot of Wonder Woman, Marvel simply needed a major character to be female (teenage is a bonus since that is the demographic most sought after).

To break it down . . . it is about Marketing, not SJW BS.

Someone who on a daily basis labels everyone as snowflakes, PC and SJW's is whining about a cartoon character?

(sigh) Please keep up with the lingo. "Conservative Justice Warrior" (CJW) is the right wing's form of "Social Justice Warrior" (SJW). They go around looking for and pointing out the things that are against their own form of PC, and seem to get extremely offended when others don't share in their frustrations. Sound familiar?

Why do they have to change characters that are loved and have been around for decades?

Why can't they just come out with NEW heroes and heroines that can build a following on their own merits?


This.. And I also wonder if Black superhero's will be allowed to lose a battle, or will they lose a battle and the entire X-Men clan then becomes racist?

They will lose.
But then file a lawsuit for a hate crime

Yes because there is a ongoing "genocide" against white superheroes

I guess I'm most curious about who will be funding her.

The narrative of Iron Man was that Tony Stark had no super powers. He was just a genius billionaire who had the free time to invent and upgrade the suit, and the capital to fund the non-stop frequent and extensive repairs.

While this 15 year old girl could easily be a genius, it's not very common for someone so young to be a billionaire.

Now before you go getting your _______ in a wad, this isn't complaint about there being females, or blacks, in comic books.


Ummmmm....yeah....that's kind of all this thread is about.


And now you are accusing OTHERS of making this about race when your title is crying about a black girl being in a comic....you truly are something else.

Time for me to re-activate the ignore filtering script.
