@matthewparker: 1 There are cool Asian superheros.

2 They are American comics most of which were created in the 50s, and 60s, and are no more America centric than any other country is. Come to Japan all the super heroes are Asian. And they have a hell of a lot more comics than the US does.

3 One character in the books Psylock who was a twin sister of Captain Britain (can't get any whiter) was changed in a convoluted story just to make her Asian.

I'm American Indian we don't have super heroes there are like 3 total and all of them can talk to animals and stupid shit like that playing on stereotypes. Still that doesn't mean I wanna change Spider-man. There is nothing from stopping myself or others from writing our own comics and making the characters whatever we want. Most Americans are white and so is the market. There is more racial diversity in comics in the US than anywhere in the world.

Comic books and race.

I think changing a comic book character's race is stupid. Getting obsessed with categories is stupid. There are fewer native Americans, Asians, etc in comics because there are fewer in the United States. The chances of being white are the highest, the chances of being black are the second highest, etc and that is reflected realistically in comic books. They are American markets and characters and the reflect American demographics.

Guess what in Japan most of the Manga characters are Japanese, imagine my lack of shock. (That's where I live by the way)

I don't even agree with changing their hair color. Why do it? Why not just keep it how it was actually written? Mary Jane has to be a redhead, Superman can not be blonde much less Chinese or whatever. And I think changing it if it is done for say a movie (Elektra was white, King Pin was black, Nick Fury is black, spider-man Tobey version had blue eyes) should be because that happened to be the best actor for the role they could find which outweighed the authenticity. It should not be done just to appeal to being PC or trying to act like they want "diversity" for the sake of it.

Agree? No? Your thoughts.

@bluelantern1995: I love how you explained why especially magneto over the actual god of fear. If indigo needs non compassion then give it to vision.

@w0nd: "

Thing's rock body sucks sense with the super strength they usually can have the durability anyway without looking like freaks.

There are lots of people with super strength who aren't freaks." Yeah try reading what I actually wrote instead of what you anticipated. That was my point just about everyone else with his powers does Not look like a freak.

"

Spawns soul power which can on be used a limited amount of times before he dies sucks.

He managed pretty well so far."

Because he has other powers. He hasn't used the one that sucks yet but once. Thus why I pointed out that it is useless as he has literally used it one time.

"

Aquaman summoning fish is pretty useless.

He called a Kraken recently, seems pretty useful to me"

Notice I said the power to summon FISH not sea creatures. Though he can summon whales, and other things he can also summon common fish too that is the power I am saying sucks. Unless he want's to feed a village assuming the fish are even there, this power is worthless.

Aquaman summoning fish is pretty useless.

Antman summoning ants is pretty stupid too.

Thing's rock body sucks sense with the super strength they usually can have the durability anyway without looking like freaks.

The invisible jet is fine because at first wonder woman could not fly, also I guess she could throw it at someone and they wouldn't know it was coming. It also takes less time to draw.

Medusa(spiderman) using her hair as a weapon is pretty lame. What if it was cut?

Spawns soul power which can on be used a limited amount of times before he dies sucks.

Spiderwoman's pheromone things sucks since 95% of those people would be attracted to her anyway.

Captain America can't get drunk

Toad lol

Emma would have been good, her last name is already Watson the same as MJ.

It's modern times. No one would care about the tatts and that can be covered anyway. Plus if she ever needs a clone she actually has one.

@JimTheSurfer: Comics aren't real life and used to be escapism from all the actual injustice. Something to inspire what ought to be. Spider-man has also been the lighter side of things. Having some old man creep up on the ladies is just disturbing. The way he went to Avengers Tower rather than just phoning them, how he didn't bother to contact MJ or anyone else, it just didn't make any sense. I'm late on the party because I order my comics from Japan and wait until there are a lot so I can save on shipping.

When and if they bring back Peter Parker, Ill read it again, until then I stop reading it at Spider-man 700. http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/blackestnight/spider-man-700-wtf-most-horrible-idea-ever/87-89879/ that's why. Part of the draw of comics is about the theme of Justice. Allowing a bad guy to kill Spider-man and take literally everything from him including his girl and family is as unjust as can be. If he starts killing people taking that reputation away too I'll just be even more pissed. They better say Peter is still inside that golden Oct orb thing and have Ironman or Reed or someone find it and figure out how to swap Peter back in and get rid of doctor octopus.

Why wouldn't Peter simply email the Avengers the situation. Dr. Strange or Professor X could verify it. Why wouldn't he have contacted MJ ahead of time? There were too many holes in the Spider-man 700.
