    One thing’s for sure that I can say about Marvel people…. They are unapologetically supportive of the different Marvel franchises, no matter how much in poor taste it is. I appreciate that level of loyalty, especially in front of the public.

    RDJ supports Marvel hitting 2 quota’s. Such a progressive time we live in………..

    If Marvel ever gives the mantle of a superhero to another character, it’s almost a 50/50 certainty the character will be black or half black.

    At least I’ll give them props for it being a black female, who don’t get a lot of love in the mainstream comics consciousness.
