    Oh, I'm not saying he didn't do some questionable things in the beginning. I overlook the recruiting of minors because this is comics (I mean, if we go by that logic, then Steve Rogers was basically the first historical dick to let a minor go to war), and yeah, the whole lying about powers and faking his death was definitely not cool, but I could live with just that because it wasn't as bad as some things some writers made him do later on.

As a matter of fact, I would not mind if they did that again with another character: Professor X. The original Xavier became such a jerk (#KittyWasRight) over the years with all of those retcons that just made him look worse and worse, and I feel like his image of father figure, beacon of hope and moral compass for the mutant community was tainted beyond repair. So I'd be down with Prof. X from an alternative, past timeline being brought to the present and being an actual role model this time around, and not the guy who perved on Jean Grey when she was a teen, enslaved a sentient being, brainwashed Wolverine, etc.
    Well, according to Generations, the O5 came from the main timeline; so there is no definite answer on that.

    Well, the less messed up of the O5 is Iceman, who was in denial about being in the closet for a really long time.

    You know, it's funny that DisMarvel keeps proving that "CYCLOPS WAS RIGHT"; even when he is dead.

    Either way there really hasn't been an asian avenger aside from Mantis (who is actually an alien)... and she's there... you could shoehorn Shang-chi but still...
    I know you talking about the main avengers team but there have been asians on other avenger teams however,like mighty avengers,u.s. avengers,a-force etc...
    Just like there are other x-men teams,like new mutants,generation x etc...

We'll always be the third choice, third option, third priority, etc, which means represented but not part of the main cast, just given a minor role, etc

    And if they keep on thinking that black are part of the minority, then the less chances of us not being represented, because the black will always be top priority among the minority. Thats why i dont consider black as part of the minority because we dont get the same treatment that blacks are getting.

    I replied to this a few pages ago.


    There has been other poc of color in main or major roles in some of the marvel movies overtime.
    Mcu and non-mcu.
    Not as much as black people but they are there and it's increasing.
    Ask anybody in new mutant movie thread for example.
    This is the case for other movies that are not marvel as well like the g.i joe movies,some of the star trek movies,increasingly some star wars movies,some dc movies and some others movies i could list but i don't have time right now.
    So things are improving.

    Something like that. I just think it would go further to explaining why the real Heather should be honored rather than just giving the next replacement hero her name.

    I think Xavier definitely had his less then stellar moments and did some skeevy stuff in the early days but at the same time I think they sometimes went overboard with that kind of stuff in later years.
