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?
