This is actually a continuation of a debate from another thread, and a bit OT for this one.. Galactus
maintains that it is perfectly acceptable to redefine existing characters "to suit modern tastes" by changing things like their race, gender, sexual preference, et al for no other reason than to increase "minority representation" in comics. That is to say, for example: Superman depicted as a black man, or Bruce Wayne as a homosexual, when they have NEVER been so depicted.
I maintain that (for example) if you want a black, lesbian atheist character then you should go create a new character to be one. Don't take the Scarlet Witch and make HER a black lesbian atheist just so there is one represented.

He's saying, we got enough of those heroes and dont make any white heroes black.
Not sure what that has to do with this topic.
At any rate, this is OT for this thread...moving on...
