I`m in no way against having black characters but I do not recall Nick Fury as ever having been black!!

My comment was not racist,I`m just a purist when it comes to comics.

Black Panther,The Falcon,Black Lightning,Black Goliath,Jim Rhodes,etc.,all black characters from jumpstreet.

The Kingpin,Nick Fury,Kid Flash,Jimmy Olsen,etc.e6tc., were not, and should not be black!

Reeves used to quip that there really couldn't be any black superheroes because their weakness was far too plentiful.  Fat white women.  Grin
Yeah...I miss the little guy.  Embarrassed

Nick Fury in the comics is the other Fury's son. Illegitimate. Black.

KingPin was black in one movie and he's white in Netflix. Non issue. The entire West show on The Flash is a black family. Why not a black Wally? It makes sense.

Hey Wes...I'm not in any way acusing you of racism....I've never seen any indication of that from you....what I'm saying is that in this day and age, comic characters must be more diverse...its a question of MONEY as always....they need minorities to watch so as to increase ratings.....what better way than tio make some of the characters black.....

Also again understand that characters were white ON PURPOSE in comics....How can 99% of the characters and heroes in comics be WHITE???...that simply doesn't reflect reality......Also why does it matter SO MUCH what the color of the character is???...just enjoy the show or comic

Yes, because Powerman and T'Challa were only created recently?

Look, I get what you're saying, but there are currently a ton of black comic book characters that they can use. Seriously... tons. In all universes.

Now... as I said before, they modified the entire West family and made them black, which is fine, I have no issue, but what black family is naming their kid Wally?
Come on.

If we stick to just DC, we could go with the Green Lantern,  John Stewart (1971) or how about Tempest (1977)... Black Lightning... (1977) or Ralph Jackson (1945)



what white family has a kid named "Barry"Huh?..... Grin

Dude..just enjoy the show..you sound like a faggoty white guy...if you were a TRUE comic fan you would know that there have been black comic characters in the comics who later on were re-incarnated as white guys....

Also you would further know that it was racism which prevented many of these characters from being black anyway


You're missing the point.  It's not that he's black or white or whatever but it's how they push a square peg into a round hole by forcing in a black person into the role of a white character.

How is this a square peg? I haven't and don't plan on see that lame show super girl. 
But, all these black actors are playing the roles the same way a white person would play it. You could have a white guy read the same exact movie script and it would sound the same.  Roll Eyes

They changed the Flash's adoptive parents and love interest into being a black family.

Jimmy Olsen in Supergirl is now a blackie and that series is promoting mudsharking.

Thanks for clearing that up Tu....I stand corrected.

Never saw the Flash on TV so I had no clue....was going strictly by the comic book.


How `bout Electro being played by Jamie Foxx..........he never was a black villian in the comic?

Not being racist,just don`t like when they change established longtime characters that drastically.

If they were black to begin with,I wouldn`t have a problem with it at all.

Andre`,I didn`t mean to imply that buddy............didn`t sound like I wanted it to sound after I read it!  Grin

You`re right,money does come into play as do ratings which is of course al;l about money.

I honestly could care less which characters are black or white,just stay true to form is all I`m saying.


If Hollywood had any fucking imagination,they would think up more black heroes/villians/charachters not change them from white to black or fucking Chinese!  Grin

They could think up a black character that isn`t even in a comic what with the way they take liberties to fuck with already established tenets.

Barry is an Anglo-Saxon white person name. Tongue

I don't think he's ever been black. They used the "Ultimate Spiderman" universe version, which creates an even bigger group of issues when it comes to understanding characters.

They just recently merged the "Ultimate" universe with the standard Marvel Universe... It's kind of cloudy right now.

Dude,I`m a huge comic fan and collector and let me just say that todays comics are completely fucked up!!


Artwork is terrible,plots are dark and dreary and the character development sucks.

I collect older comics from the 40`s to the early to mid 90`s when they were great not just mediocre.


OK,I`m done now!!  Cheesy

There are very few comics that I consider "great" right now.

It's the companies though... They don't know how to make interesting stories, so it's all the same let's blow up our entire universe thing over and over again.

so many people getting upset about ficticious characters

it would try the patience of a saint : )

Barry is short for Finbar as in Saint Finbar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finbarr_of_Cork



Fictitious, yes.  The problem lies in that these characters are mostly from their childhood.  Like it or not, few people enjoy having their childhood memories intercoursed with in the name of political correctness and/or the almighty dollar.

No doubt there.

Sure would bother me and anyone knowledgeable about the source-material.
(Mostly the older generation, the new generation is already corrupted and doesn't know any better. They're raised with the current PC-values)

You just don't do things like that.

All the things that has happened (changes, be it in art, media, literature or at work) after 2000+ is a true representation of the current PC-climate and liberal society.

Gone are the family values of old and is instead replaced with things like replacing old characters in media with burrheads / other coloreds / women (which is just in line with the current PC-agenda), utilizing the colored racial quota (be it in employment or education) as well as promoting interracial relations.
