June 1, 2012 6:10 pm Um...it's Miles Morales. Have you read any of the Ultimate Spider-Man comics with him in it? Obviously not, so you probably shouldn't use him as an example. Just saying.
June 1, 2012 5:26 pm While I have been disappointed by the way DC is handling this announcement, I have to agree with Josh a little bit. As much as this was taking the path of least resistance for the sake of sales, it's still a step forward. A tiny step, but a step none the less. I've decided to look at this as a catalyst for change. It's not earth shattering, and the story will more than likely be shoved to the background soon enough, but it does show that people are trying. Creative power-houses still have to answer to the powers that be, so we now just have to wait until the powers that be care less about sales and more about representing the human race.
June 1, 2012 5:18 pm I was staying cautiously optimistic about this until I saw the cover image. I can't believe that they let that through. While I'm sure the artists didn't mean anything by it, I think the editors made a BIG mistake letting it go to print. It leaves the book and character open for a lot of cheap shots from people who aren't open minded enough to accept Alan as a gay character. I completely agree on the Northstar point. The story is really compelling, and I can't wait to see more of it.
June 1, 2012 5:15 pm That's very well said.

May 24, 2012 1:15 pm Hey, Molly, Let me introduce you to my favorite illustrator in Etsyland and her freaking to-die-for fancy dress illustrations. Nerdy, adorable, I want to wall paper my bedroom in her work. Also, her Final Fantasy and Zelda illustrations are ADORBS! http://www.etsy.com/listing/88305915/droidettes-fancy-dress-star-wars <3Sarah
May 24, 2012 1:10 pm Women like wearing dresses and looking good. How is that different from a dude putting on a suit and combing his hair back? It's not. Are you under the impression that a woman must be butch in order to be powerful? Because that makes it sound like you are a proponent of erasing femininity altogether. THAT would be demeaning. Women are different from men, and we are allowed to celebrate that in the ways we prefer.
