Now that I've gotten your attention with that sensational title, here's a rant"
So it has been found out that Sam Wilson will be taking the up the mantle of Captain America.
And the new Thor ( or the person with that is worthy of the power of Thor) is going to be a woman.
This is cool. I like it when they change things up. Can't wait to see what they do with the new story lines will go.
What's not cool is the people moaning about the change. Especially, so called "True Fans".
I am so tired of this nonsense. So sick and tired of these true fans complaining whenever a character's race, gender, or sexuality is changed.
Marvel/DC don't retire their main characters. They reuse them over and over again. Scott Summers was a teenager in the 1950s and he's now currently in his early thirties or late twenties. And to keep them fresh and new, they change them over and over again. A character right now will be WAAAAY different that they were in their original comic.
This is ridiculous. Characters constantly change yet no one cares unless you change the race/gender/sexuality.
You can change the origins, you can change the name, the time, their affiliation (good/evil), team, country, age, even their powers, but the minute you change the race, gender, or sexuality, all helheim is loose.
These so called true fans just come out in droves and talk about:
"Change for the sake of change"
"Forced Diversity is Bad"
There was no outrage when Bucky became the Captain.
There was no outrage when a frog or those other men was given the power of Thor.
But make the new Captain America a black man? Or make Thor a woman?
"Oh noes!! Someone protect the spruce material."
I'm sick of it.
It's just plain ole bigotry.
They could make Cap into a neo Nazi zombie with a laser beams and rainbow but powers and these "True Fans" won't bat an eye unless you change his skin tone or make him think Doctor Strange is cute in a tux. Nonsense.
