Either way, first or last, it's not about the order. It's not like that is the only aspect of those characters.
Either way you don't know me at all. I know ex cons. Some of the nicest people I know. Hell some of my family members are/have been in jail. Sometimes folks make mistakes early in life, it doesn't mean they are indefinitely bad people. Anyone who judges that quickly may want to check themselves. Unless they went for murder or something I'd say give them a chance. Maybe they are a bad apple, maybe they just got caught up in some stupidity at that time in their life.
How is it racist for the character to have one stereotype? It's not like Miles lives with a poor single mom and he's never met his father who is a drug addict gang leader. His dad used to be a criminal. So what?
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
I actually liked that Morales had a reversed peter parker situation going on
But I don't think that's why people never flew for morales
Ultimate Comics Spider-man is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW
The book is a handfull of pages thin, comes out once a month, and very little will happen from one issue to another
Ultimate Peter parker was a new idea, a new character in a new universe.
The whole Ultimate approach was born with him, going on fourteen years ago or something
That really got people going, and balanced out his drawbacks
Miles however, started nowhere near the same steam, and he never picked up
So screw it
Other comics also only come out monthly, but at least there's this whole giant thing around them, every week, and every month that carries the momentum of that comic
UCSM is just there, isolated.
Also, I don't think how you can point at anyone's criminal background and say that's a problem
You got plenty sucessful books in Thunderbolts, Dark Avengers, Punisher and whatever the crap wolverine stars in
These are all disgusting scumbags
The reason why Miles dad was an ex criminal was because it created a closer connection to the uncle and it explains why the dad does not like the uncle. It is really only one thing. I'm not normally one to say who should or shouldn't be offended at something, however, you seem to be blowing this out of proportion. I feel like the black men on this site should speak more on this issue. I don't remember many of them thinking that it was handled that poorly (I have been wrong before so feel free to speak up guys) and they are the ones who have to deal with the real world implications of such a stereotype.
To cover up on the double post, I will say that I am pretty critical on how Bendis handled other black male characters, namely Luke and Brother Voodoo. So it's not like I'm biased on this.
This is more plot driven then bad sterotype. no crying wolf on this one
Comfortably numb is my state of being!
Do you know what I think is a stereotype? Words like Blacksploitation. If anyone's being anything close to racist, it's those who are complaining about the race issue. Not all, just some of them who think about it too much, being influenced by the media and then repeating nonsensical concepts of pretentious censorship like Politically Correct. Some people even get upset over the topic because they have this belief that all stories should have a large diversity of minorities. This is a result of people getting most of their education from the media. What people need to realise is that it doesn't matter what colour or race anyone is. I understand the fact that there was an outcry about a Black Spider-Man last year, but I can't believe people are still going on about it as much as I'm seeing here on this thread. I'm from the UK and I've never known anyone who thinks about race like a lot of the people do on this thread. I mean, skin colour is just such a strange thing to discuss so.. philosophically.
