Sidekicked Issue #61 – Is Iron Man avenging diversity?
July 7, 2016 at 11:29 am
Modern comics are drastically more diverse in cast than once before. While many of DC and Marvels most iconic teams (such as the Justice League and Avengers) where once entirely made of one ethnicity, now each team’s spectrum of colors is vast in both costume and race. But as iconic characters such as Iron Man are replaced more frequently by characters of color, are we experiencing an unintentional “blackwashing” of comic books? Vincent and David tackle this towering topic this week.
