Again...yes, we now dis will not happen.
So can we be respectful of that?
Besides if I wanted to read the X-books-I can go to the dollar bins and get those books cheap or FREE as some stores have started doing.
MANY are just tired of getting hopes up and getting disappointed. If Marvel wants any oneís support they have to earn it.
It gets tiresome that we canít have black males (straight or gay) in books without there being threads complaining about them.
And I think it speaks VOLUMES that one guy on this team has a 30+ thread about them and he is in a team book. That many folks either have issues with him on the team or don't want him on the team because someone else has the same powers?
they label me a villain cause of how I express my feelings

Supernatural's gotten stale, and killed off most of the cast outside of 4 characters over the years.
Vampire Diaries kills off all the minority characters except for Bonnie thats more of a plot device than just a character, not to mention how infuriating that show is. No one matters outside of Elena and her circle, everyone else can be killed without consequence or remorse.
Than everything else is some romance tween show

I mean if I work for Marvel and I see a unknown black teen is getting more attention than the book he is slated to be in because he's black.
I would have to worry is he that "toxic" that he might cost the book sales? Especially if we get more images of him doing anything.
Especially when you look at the writer who not only has black kids but the writer of the highest selling black (if not minority) lead book in comics.
Are we going to hear agenda chants with him like we did with McDuffie?
I mean if that book doesn't sale who gets the blame?
I did sort of go on a tangent in that X-book thread-What power does the black guy have?
Did I overdo it?The point AJA has been trying to make is can we see a black male in any Marvel appear in a book without fan complaints or being the things he posted.
Think about your favorite character. What made you attracted to that character in the first place? What was that one story that made you enjoy the character?
The request is write black characters with the same respect one would give to Peter Parker, Steve Rogers and any other nonblack male or female-no matter the sexual orientation.
If Christopher has the same powers as Elixir-SO WHAT??? They don’t have the same story or background.
If we went by that mindset we would not have Miles Morales, Spider-Man 2099, Johnny Storm, US Agent, Falcon, Venom, Spider-Woman, She Hulk, Superboy, Static, Living Lighting, Tim Drake, Barry Allen, Ted Kord, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Guy Gardner, Wally West, Donna Troy, Supergirl, Power Girl, Jaime Reyes, various gay heroes, Damian Wayne and so many others because if we already have one guy with those powers.
It does not matter if they have the same powers-what matters is the story!
Now to the question about black males in comics-
It has become a point of Marvel & DC having to justify using a black male for ANYTHING.
Because some people won’t stop complaining about them being used in books and attacking folks who ask about them being MIA in books.
You want proof-look at this thread! 30+ pages and all we have seen from him is the cover and being carried off by Cyclops. Where are the threads for the others? What about the girl like someone asked?
If I am working for Marvel and see this thread-I might go to the editors of the book and make sure he gets used more because he has gotten more attention than the rest of the team. I might add black guys to every team because they get more attention for the book than anything the creative team or Marvel does.
