"The Weasel."

A criminal nicknamed the Weasel, huh? Then why does he need a mocap-

"Is an actual weasel man."

... comics.

According to a new report, John Cena is indeed playing Peacemaker, but Idris Elba is playing Vigilante.

Having the Asian actress play a literal yellow-skinned alien whose father's name in Mongul sounds like it might not go over well.

[down]Sorry, I meant to say that Mongul was her father's name.

I mean, technically, her name is Mongal.

While the character himself is ultimately fairly harmless and a standard evil space dictator with nothing in the way of actual Asian associations, I did get the feeling that he might've gotten some inspiration from Yellow Peril villains like Ming the Merciless at the start for those reasons.

The actual Yellow Peril aliens are the Dominators. Seriously.

Of course, then there is literally a character whose name is Yellow Peri.
