    Agreed 100%.
    Enjoying the camraderie of friends and family is all that matters in the world.

    Mr MajestiK took a short hiatus and the Chaos Bringer was reborn.

    It seems like it hasn't been mentioned here (I didn't find it anyway). But Netflix made audio description so blind people can get a better grip of Daredevil. http://blog.netflix.com/2015/04/netf...ption-for.html

    Aforementioned Psylocke from White to Japanese. And Tom Corsi and Sharon Friedlander from white to superpowered Native.
    He created all three characters

    You've expressed in social media your desire to put Psylocke back in her original body. I've always felt uncomfortable watching a white woman wearing an Asian body and I'm glad a writer acknowledges it. Can you share your opinions on it and why do you feel it is important minority characters are represented accurately?


    Writer G. Willow Wilson returns to X-POSITION to discuss the upcoming finale of her "X-Men" run

    I think it's important to acknowledge that people's experiences are not interchangeable, especially when it comes to race and ethnicity. If you're going to drop a white character into an Asian body, I think it behooves you to explore how that character's life would change -- how she would be treated socially, how she would deal with microaggression, how this might alter her perceptions about the world. If you take a story in that direction, you've gotta do the work. Otherwise it's just tokenism. However, since I'm just here for four issues, I didn't feel I had the space or the prerogative to move things around significantly, so I didn't really touch on the Psylocke race issue. If I was the ongoing series writer, however, I would seriously consider making a change.

    So much this. They could have made the transformation something compelling, instead they make her a fan service cheesecake character.

    That is an EDITOR issue. We have heard too many times a writer wanted to use someone and constantly got told NO.

    We saw it with Rocket in Birds of Prey
    Static in Supergirl
    Eli Bradley in everything
    The real Wally West
    and poor Cassandra Cain who got edited out of books

    So some writers might be telling the truth.

    And this is where we need to start asking editors why. Who are they serving? You can't keep pandering to the group who doesn't like minorities or LGBT.
