What a dickbag.
What a dickbag.
The new Ghost Rider series has actually gotten quite a bit of positive reviews. It has its detractors, but also its advocates.
"It's not whether you win or lose, it's whether I win or lose." - Peter David, on life
"If you can't say anything nice about someone, sit right here by me." - Alice Roosevelt Longworth, on manners
"You're much stronger than you think you are." - Superman, on humankind
The new Ghost Rider series is overrated by the very few who read it. I've tried to enjoy it and I just can't. It simply couldn't have lasted very long with yet another new host, minority or not. Him being called Ghost Rider isn't enough of a hook for new readers, and deviating from the established mythos made it unappealing for Ghost Rider fans. Essentially, it shot itself in the foot from the start. Personally, I can't say we even got a good story out of it. The origin was bland, it lacked an interesting supporting cast and it used too many cliches in order to try to make you feel sorry for an otherwise selfish/irresponsible lead character.
Well here is another stat that I discovered. As far I can tell Falcon is about to step in some very select company. How many times has a minority headline more than one book.
Meaning a solo book and a team book (regularly appearing).
Falcon will do it next month.
Storm is doing it now and might be doing 3 titles. I'm not up to date on the X-Cult and the various Avengers team books.
Miles Morales is doing now.
I am not reading Nova-so if he is a minority count him as probably 1 of the 2 nonblack ones. I want to count Jubliee despite her ongoing was cut to a mini. I think she should count.
Black Panther-his book and you can debate his and Storm's stint in Fantastic Four
The MIA Bishop-was he in the X-Men when his solo came out?
I want to say War Machine but I'm not sure if he was in a team book when his first solo came out.
Black Panther might have been the first but I'm not sure due to his stints on Avengers and you could say the same for James Rhodes when he took over for Tony.
9 people of color to headline more than 1 book.
And for you DC fans-for Dc OWNED properties-Jaime Reyes & Vibe (most recent). While the first guy under the Dc logo was someone named Virgil O. Hawkins. 21 years ago.
And how is it pandering when in reality you have only 7 (well 9 if you counted Iron Patriot & Nova) that feature a minority in the lead role?
