Oh boy. Guess who populates Marzal...the Legion of course treats it like a ghetto.
And now the history of Marzal
Jim Shooter pretty much sums up why I was outraged at this
"...I always wanted to have a character who was African-American (Tyroc), and years later, when they did that, they did it in the worst way possible....instead of just incidentally having a character who happens to be black...they made a big fuss about it. He's a racial separatist....I just found it pathetic and appalling."
Until this time ALL the legionaries were drawn with Caucasian features. When black people ARE introduced they are violent separatists that have to be shown the error of their ways by white people.
This is a controversial topic, sorry if I inadvertently offended anyone. Please let me know if I did.
