Asian Marvel's Heroes
Really there isnt enough of any race.
Asian: Psylock, Nico, Armor, Surge, Shang CHi, Iron fist, Etc etc
Black: Black Panther, Storm, Blue Marvel, M, Luke Cage
Hispanic: I guess when Spiderman was thought up could count...I guess
Native Americans: Theres a few such as Ech but thats the only main stream one I can think of. Also Warpath
There's way to many white heros and its actually kinda getting on my nerves reading Marvel Comics as a mixed blood youth. I feel kinda odd reading it while DC has tons of kick ass black heroes and other race heroes.
One reason there are so few Villians that are Black,Hispanic,Asain, OR native american. IS certain members of those groups of people get really pissed off, when they are portayed as villian
Even DC has to play a thin line with there villians of race. plus they dont use thos Black heroes as often
As for the hero aspect
They cannot really make them sterotypes Warpath and forge are ok, but Marvel got huge backlash when Warpath's tribe was dug up as part of a storyline, and even for the character himself at times
Spiderman 2099 was only half spanish
Wolverine's son Daken is mixed blood. Canadian and Japanese.
It is my greatest hope that a Korean superhero can make it onto the pages one day. All we have is (I think) Grace Choice who used to be an Outsider and Amadeus Cho (Who they made into a white dude in Incredible Hulk).
You have to remember that nearly all comics started in the 40's and 60's were written by white/Jewish/ Italians guys they writing what they knew, because as the late great Dwayne McDuffie pointed out when both companies were trying to add color there can only be so many black guys on skateboards. Also and this just might be me you want to avoid stereotypical cliches
" @Eva said:" I also agree with Vance, not enough hoeroes. Asian women are more popular. What about Asian men? I only know Sunfire and he's ok. "asian men arent sexy "
