erasure of Asian people and characters is very deep rooted in American media and goes all the way back to conception—don’t let it persist!
Important even when you’re excited about this movie!
Few things I noticed…
1. Shocker is a great artist.
2. He is apparently very good at mathematics calculations while under heavy fire.
I fuckin’ love this shit! It really speaks to me!
I shouldn’t be laughing…but I am.

I killed that dance at the end of this.
Look, I made a thing for everyone who is freaking out about Michael B. Jordan being cast as Johnny Storm (aka: The Human Torch) in Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot because he’s black *GASP!* Hell, even Jamie Foxx got some backlash for being cast as Electro in the new Amazing Spider-Man movie. It’s kind of sad that people are more accepting of a character being able to burst into flames and fly around or control electricity than they are of that character not being white.
Stop hiding behind the “It should stay true to the character in the comics!” excuse, because that’s not even a valid argument anymore. The opposite has happened before (see: Liam Neeson as Ra’s al Ghul) and not nearly as many people were upset. Movies adapted from comic books have deviated from the source material for a long time now, so shut it. Race doesn’t make the character.
It’s also worth mentioning that it took a while for non-stereotypical representations of other races to make their way into comic books. That’s why there were so many white characters early on. Comics, just like the overall acceptance of society, has changed over the years. Maybe you should too.
The biggest thing everyone should be worried about is that Fox is making another superhero movie. That’s the scariest part of all of this.
