The Place Where the Wonder Ends

I am so tired of characters that happen to be a member of a minority being grossly overshadowed by put-on political discussion and debate only because they happen to be black, or latino, or in this case a woman. 

There was a time where these were very valid concerns. Having Wonder Woman, one of the most powerful beings in comics, reduced to just a secretary in her role in the Justice Society of America (a precursor of sorts to the Justice League) because she is a woman is gross, that's not up for debate. But that was in 1942, 75 years ago. What was the most recent Wonder Woman controversy? When feminists took exception with her shaved armpits in a trailer for the new movie a few months back. 

My point is these frivolous uproars misplace attention that should be put on the qualities of these characters. Isn't it a good thing to just see a character and want to judge him or her on how good their stories are? In theory shouldn't that be the goal of everyone that wants to better the world? 

I understand that discrimination can be a big part of these character's lives, but must we have an arbitrary discussion about it constantly?

BOBBY
Bobby Chrisafis is an aspiring Comic Artist and Writer who idolizes Batman and has always cited Frank Miller as his favorite Writer and Artist since the first time he laid down The Dark Knight Returns and realized his calling. He was euphorically happy when he finally met his hero, Mr. Miller (see profile picture). Outside of comics, he is an avid fan of the New York Yankees and Oakland Raiders. He also loves Punk Rock and listening to it way too loud.
