I'm going to try to go see it this week because I have been a huge Godzilla fan since I was a kid as well.

Let's also put this article into social context, implicit bias studies have shown that over 80% of white people have a easier time identifying good things like smart, beautiful,intelligent, and etc. with other white people in comparison to black people.

Storm has been considered beautiful for decades, and she didn't have to be introduced as 'Marvel Girl'... or worse, 'Cyclops'.

Think about how absurd it is to introduce a new character as an existing or an older one and then you'll understand why most people are getting annoyed with this announcement.

The fact that it's becoming a pattern also doesn't help.

Storm has "Eurocentric" features like long silky straight white hair and her relationship with the X-Men has made her a safe "black" character. If Storm was in a all black superhuman group, do you think she would have the same notoriety she has as an X-Men? Empirical studies has shown us that white people have a far easier time identifying beauty with other white people, so this isn't just a random opinion.

What are white people complaining for? You all are the actually minority on this earth, so what if these legacy characters give up their mantles to people of color. I'm really not seeing the problem here........

You know black people complained too? Right? Read the comments. Largely it's about the fact that Marvel feels that simply using race as a marketing tool is an effective means of selling a comic. It's the same as the race-baiting title of this article "15 year old black girl replaces tony stark..." they wouldn't have chosen that if it were a white, they did that on purpose.

And.......Marvel wasn't using race or better yet racism when the overwhelming majority of their main characters and cast were white in order to appeal to the white supremacist sentiments in white people?

"White supremacist sentiments". Alright well your bias shines through plain as day so logic probably has about as much effect on you as bullets do on Superman.

The majority of Americans are white,approximately 70%, many of these characters, if not nearly all of them, were created between 1930 and 1965, by white artists and writers to appeal to the majority audience.

They did however also create black super heroes, just not in the volume they did white ones.

Sorry, implicit bias studies have shown us that the overwhelming majority of white people (over 80%) have racial bias. To sit here and say that racism and white supremacy had nothing to do with these characters and their cast originally being all white when we know for a historical fact of the matter that white people were engaged in Jim Crow politics and scientific racism in order to disenfranchise black people is the height of intellectual dishonesty.
