    I think his roots in segregation era America are essential. If you remove that, then he's closer to being just another Super Man clone.

    Oh, I'm sure that Marvel doesn't have any plans for a Jean solo, I just meant in theory under the right writer it could be interesting. They could show how he has to balance superheroing with his...

    I'm not an expert in anime. The stuff that would bother me would be either just bad writing or fanservice involving particularly young looking characters

    Now that you mention it, I can think of a couple of "lampshading" of the trope. There was an old issue of the Teen Titans where the villain's son brags that he killed Kid Flash and his dad says...

    With Northstar if they gave him a series it would be an opportunity to do something really unique with him being both gay and married, it could open up storylines that you can't do with other heroes.

    I'll give them credit for using the legacy title and trying something different and unique as opposed to just doing Sharon Ventura mach2 or whatever. It paid off in ways no one expected

    Well, I think in Chris Claremont's mind, giving her a new heroic identity and not defining her as a victim, probably counted as winning back then.

    I think it's just a case of writers wanting to move on. In comic book time it's been maybe 6 or 7 years (?). In real life it's been over thirty. You can't have the fallout of questionable writing be...

    I think the irony is that had Kahn been named Stretch Girl or something, Marvel probably wouldn't have given her a title in the first place

    I think it has to do with preconceptions about the comic book market and Marvels business model than anything thing else. For a long time they struggled with female titles until the success of Ms...

    I curious as to people's thoughts...what would be the advantage of having a younger actor play him? In my mind a Blue Marvel film would be very different than a normal Superman or Capt America movie,...

    Can we say ones that are particular to a certain character? I'd like to vote for Batman threatening to kill the Joker then not killing the Joker.

    If we have keep in general, I'll say meaningless...

    I agree. Number 3 is really just a case of not having a clear direction for a book, I wouldn't call it a genre trope.

    Just to throw it out there, many characters from Iron Man to Cap to Wonder Woman to hosts of other heroes and villians were created to be political or at least symbolic. But I guess it depends on...

    Thing is...the fact that Adam is an older gentleman is the whole point of his character. He's got to look like a middle-age man (even though he's probably in his 70's). Getting a fresh faced 30yr old...

    Ok, but I don't think I've ( or anyone in this thread yet ) have torn anything down. Being critical or saying that Marvel could maybe they could do a better job with a few of their characters is not...

    Well, I wasn't being snarky. I was genuinely confused because in the post you responded to I didn't deny anyone's sexuality. So I just assumed you were going back to the earlier conversation people...

    Just to throw it out there, I kinda think how much screen time romance gets in superhero comics might be a different issue. I think what most people want to see is a LGTB character as the star and...
