Marvel Comics reveal new Spider Man is black and could be gay in the future

August 3, 2011
The comic book industry doesn’t get that creating ethnic characters by replacing white characters is not flattering to ethnics at all. What is even more disturbing is the strange need for a Black Latino Spiderman to be Gay. Why can’t Peter Parker suck that shlong himself? It’s a gimmick. It’s exploitative to everyone. I don’t have a problem with Gay characters… even lead Gay characters if the Gay community needs to tell it’s narrative, but the way this is going about is disgusting. For one thing it co-opts the audience’s values. Some children’s parents might not want their kids seeing this. Anyway… it’s Capitalism… so buyer beware. It is pretty much in line with the Muslim Batman sidekick that DC created. The comicbook industry must be looking at ethnic buyers and they see growth in the market. via
