Thanks for attending! We were thrilled to have such amazing panelists this year and feel reinvigorated for next year. A video will be up eventually.
There are plans in the works for a panel at NYCC…
If women and minorities taking on major superhero character roles (while the main characters are still prominently featured and going on new journeys) is offensive to you: PLEASE JUST UNFOLLOW THIS BLOG. No need to reblog me just to complain about “political correctness” and “pandering” and both of them being “shoved down your throat.” Write your own post. I’m not interested in your note.
On the subject of Falcap, specifically: Were you whining when Bucky Barnes took over the job? Do you even read the comics? You loved Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though, right? So maybe there’s a reason why this particular change is getting under your skin. Sam Wilson will be the seventh person in Marvel Universe continuity to be called Captain America. And he’ll be awesome.
If you can’t like Captain America anymore because he’s black, there’s a word for that.
“curly black hair, olive skin, … and dark eyes that look almost black”
We’re putting together a panel for San Diego ComicCon 2014! Right now we’re envisioning a panel focused on women superheroes and aiming for an all-women panel! What we definitely want is a lot of intersectionality on the panel— particularly women of color and women who hold multiple intersectional identities! Women who write novels or comics or webcomics about superheroines! Women who study transmedia and the depiction of superheroes! Women who provide cultural commentary on comics and media representation!
This is where we’d love your help! What would your dream panel on this topic look like? Who should we invite and who would you like to see?
