In it's own way, it's kinda racist to read a book just to support and highlight black/minority characters, but I'm so there. I grew up on the X-verse where all the black dudes are killed, depowered or made into villains (and not the sympathetic kind) so this should be an interesting and fresh book for me.
I hate Land, but it should be fine unless Ewing is a god-awful writer.

Just present it as Mighty Avengers and say nothing else, if you really want to make a statement.
Make no mistake though, I'm not apologizing for supporting diversity. Racism was the wrong word. I meant that there was an honest bias, in the way I, I in particular, am coming onto the book. It's got a group of minorities getting to be heroes and I never get to see that. It's got an immediate edge in terms of trying to get me to buy it because of the color of a majority of the cast. Unless it's just horrifically, objectively horrible, I'm putting money down for this book.
Not sure how no marketing helps.

And I think addressing the socio-political aspect is also a good idea. Comic books weren't shy about speaking about politics in the past. They should continue to do so. Especially since doing anything like that is going to get publicity, and given what a niche market comic books have become these days - The Avengers movie made $1.5 billion, and the Avengers comic is lucky to break 100 000 copies each month - I'm inclined to think that any publicity comics get is going to wind up being good publicity.
