Ok, so apparently Mandarin, a blatantly Mongoloid villain who has always been Oriental is going to be portrayed by a Caucasoid actor of Indo-European descent.....and Marvel fanboys are somehow happy? First off, dear God are these Iron Man movies pissing over the villains to where they don't even act anything like they do in the comics, let alone resemble them. This is apparently some huge victory, but Marvelites will take every chance they get to complain about Bane, a villain who was white to begin with, being whitewashed. Bane in the comics is never shown with Mongoloid features(Native Amerindians are Mongoloid), where as comic Mandarin is always shown as Mongoloid. So with this blatant middle finger to source, I believe Black Panther or Luke Cage should be white or Asian in the movieverse. First off, I hate unnecessary race changes, as I was and am against the racebending in Thor, Man of Steel, Last Airbender, and Dragonball Evolution. And before someone says, "race is an important part of T'Challa and Cage", IT'S IMPORTANT WITH MANDARIN TOO! LOOK AT HIS NAME!!! Look at his MO of being unhappy with China's current state. That's just as integral as any part of Black Panther and Cage's back story. And before I hear the yellow peril crap, Luke Cage was/sometimes still is a blaxploitation character. He AS WELL as Falcon, who will be in Captain America 2, both have history with criminal activity. The yellow peril depiction of the Mandarin hasn't been used since the 60s, back when 'ol Shellhead "crush Commies" and the Crimson Dynamo was the baddest "Red" in comics. Falcon and Cage, however, still have all that crap as their back story . Also, there are characters like Black Lightning or Icon, who are upstanding Black heroes who try to fix the problems of the black community in Dakota and Suicide Slum, and are comparable in morals to say Superman, Captain America, and Spiderman, However, Cage, Marvel's most prolific black hero, has a criminal record, is a mercenary who only worked for hire, still lives on the streets and thrives in ghetto mentality instead of opposing it, and gets a woman knocked up out of wedlock. And yet Mandarin is apparently the bad stereotype.
