    Just saying that htere is nothing wrong with a white British male being either the Dr or Bond, but in this PC climate of today, must get minorities and other gender forced into the roles!


Not saying there is anything wrong with it. It has worked for a while. I do in some ways get the desire to diversify but at times it is a bridge too far if it means changing totally what got you there.

I actually would not have minded Idris Elba as Bond. Granted, not a big fan, but a good actor.

    Mickey Mouse owns marvel, so pretty clear why there has been a mandate to clean and sweep out all white males, as must have females and minorites exclusively now represented!


This is not even a little true. There have been trade outs here and there but the original characters did not go away and most of the characters are still around.

I do think comics have had a diversity problem that is quite real. Female readers were not drawn in much when most female characters were either housewife types or drawn to just have giant boobs and look like sex pen ups (looking at you 90's in particular).

Most characters were white and male. And the readers were and that is what they wanted I guess or were used to. And Marvel had a few heavy handed attempts to diversify that were almost always too on the nose at times.

I get the desire. As it is always their to expand your market. Particularly with women it makes sense. Why exclude 50% of the population. In my experience women enjoy stories as much as men do, although some do not enjoy superhero comics (my wife loves the movies but is meh about superhero comics. Likes other kinds though).
