The picture has three "ethnic" men in standard superhero outfits (oddly captioned as "mystic female heroes), but doesn't show that any of them is a magician. I think we should pull that.

Suggested replacement, who at least wields a magic staff. I'm sure the comics section of this trope could yield more suggestions.

Special trousers. Very heroic.

[tdown] to the suggestion for the odd crop; a better shot could work.

[up] Itís better, but the cropping still bugs me. Is that how the scene is actually framed?

Here's a couple of different images of one of the dudes from the current:

[1] [2] [3]

I think his tribal-themed costume helps emphasize better that his magic powers is somewhat correlated to the culture he came from, and this is not just "a magic user who happens to be non-white".

[up] Those are all pretty good.

6.3 looks the best so far.

[up]Agreed.

Take a moment to think of just flexibility, love, and trust.

Well, 6.2 looks more like a warrior to me. But 6.1 and 6.3 are great.

Special trousers. Very heroic.

I wish there was a sharper version (reverse GIS turned up nothing), but 6.3 is best.

I think we've got enough consensus for 6.3. It's in and tagged; caption?
