More DC Race Fail

Dave Brothers Beat Me To This One

More of Ian Sattler at the the Heroes Con DC Nation panel.

"A serious topic came up about how characters who are minorities who happened to be legacy characters like Ryan Choi are killed off so their caucasian counterparts can return and how they feel like they are being cheated or sidelined out of their roles. Sattler took a more serious tone. "It's so hard for me to be on the other side because it's not our intention. There is a reason behind it all. We don't see it that way and strive very hard to have a diverse DCU. I mean, we have green, pink, and blue characters. We have the Great Ten out there and I have counter statistics, but I won't get into that. It's not how we perceived it. We get the same thing about how we treat our female characters."

I've actually been expecting somebody at Fox to blow a gasket over something or another in a mainstream comic book - Billy and Teddy's relationship, Ares's gory dismembering in Siege, Batwoman's ongoing, etc. - for quite some time now. The teabagger rally in Captain America came close, but didn't quite go over the edge.

I was expecting it to be something in Civil War. I mean. WWII vet Captain America as an outlaw?

Steve's always been pretty liberal, though. He dated a Jewish girl, hangs out with black people, beats up racists, tends to wind up fighting the government during Republican administrations, and refuses to carry a gun. They also made sure that immediately after 9/11, Steve spent a few months explicitly going after terrorists.

Oh, did you see where Yahoo news was whining that movie!Cap wasn't a true American because a movie based in the European Theater is being ::gasp:: filmed in Europe, taking away precious economic boosts to LA? I was hoping that would puff up into something, just because it was so hilariously absurd.
