Wow, his name was actually Whitewash Jones. I thought you were joking and saying that a character named Jones that I missed earlier got whitewashed.

Deadpool & Luke Cage once together fought a pimpolord gangster called the White Man who is literally just an albino guy dressed in all white.

A funny comic, it was a parody of the 70’s I think that amusingly enough had a massive impact on Deadpool himself.

.......... What’s the most offensive character in Marvel history?
Marvel history? Are we talking from the appearance of Captain America or from the Fantastic Four? Because Cap had his infamous "Slap a Jap" moments during World War II, but if we discount that, then Marvel trying out blaxploitation would be a close second: here is what the original Black Mariah looked like.

If we're talking about all comic books, well...prior to Black Lightning, DC was trying to invent a black superhero and they came up with a character that was so offensive the writer refused to write him: the Black Bomber, a racist bigot who magically transformed into a black man.

In each of the two completed Black Bomber scripts, the white bigot risks his own life to save another person whom he can't see clearly (in one case, a baby in a stroller) and then reacts in racial slur disgust when he discovers that he risked his life to save a black person. He wasn't aware that he had two identities, but each identity had a girlfriend and the ladies were aware of the change. To add final insult, the Bomber's costume was little more than a glorified basketball uniform.
DC had wanted me to take over writing the book with the third issue. I convinced them to eat the two scripts and let me start over. To paraphrase my arguments...
"Do you REALLY want DC's first black super-hero to be a white bigot?"

Whut? That makes no sense...the character is either white or he isn't, right?

He was a white bigot who magically turned into a black superhero. Again: it was super racist.

The part that confuses me the most is the fact that he has two girlfriends who are aware of his identity-switching, yet are apparently content to share the man AND keep him in the dark about his own transformation.

The fact that the world exists means nobody has had a TRUE 'everything bagel' yet. Twitch

I'm offended that his superhero costume was supposed to be a basketball uniform.

I mean really, he's so racist he even hates basketball just because there's a lot of black players?

Why don't we also add that his least favorite food is fried chicken.

Didn't Marvel use to have Fu Manchu as a character in their universe?

Funnily enough, Fu seems far more interesting than anything else in those books.

And they could write entire short stories justifying the bathingsuit,among them is "She looks cooler in one!"

Literally the only thing I wanted out of Cpt. Marvel’s costume was to adapt the bodysuit color scheme well, since imo hers is one of the best color schemes in all of comic history.

And they did that, so...

She’s still the most traditional looking superhero of the bunch, too (besides Spidey), which is something I’d be hoping to see as well.

It is worth pointing out that the first Ms. Marvel suit with a bared midriff lasted for only 9 issues. And in her first issue, Carol was already pushing for feminist causes such as right for a fair wage and freedom to write about any topic. So yeah, anyone advocating for a return to “the good ol’ apolitical days” clearly never actually read them.

[up][up] Yeah I rather miss the color scheme too.

Really loved the black with a lighting bolt, made for a striking design.

I'd like for it to come back in some way.

I can only assume that means she does something comparable or exceeding Thor's Infinity War feat of surviving a direct blast from a dwarf star. Maybe she blows up the Kree's solar system, or something.
