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.

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.

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.
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?
Edited by RavenWilder on Feb 19th 2019 at 1:11:58 AM
Yes, he was Shang-Chi's Archnemesis Dad.
I...really wish I hadn't been reminded of that.
Funnily enough, Fu seems far more interesting than anything else in those books.
Neither Kevin Feige Nor Brie Larson Wanted Ms. Marvel's 'Bathing Suit' Costume in Captain Marvel
That was so obvious I'm surprised they even said anything about it.
Somewhere out there a purist is raging at lack of a bathingsuit
Somewhere out there, a horny white dude is raging at the lack of a bathing suit and pretending he only wants it out of an interest in purism.
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.
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.

First reactions to “Captain Marvel” are in.
“Thanos is f***ed.”

Alright Thanos better have that gauntlet at least somewhat fixed now.
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.
Gwyneth Paltrow is retiring from playing Pepper, though she leaves the door open enough for a day’s filming of a cameo or such.

How well does it match the trope?
