I'm not feeling a Black/Latino Spider-Man
Sorry guys, I'm all for diversity and poor white folks don't own the license on radioactive spiders, but I don't like the new Ultimate Spider-Man story line. I want more people of color in the comic book world but I believe that new characters should be made with their own stories. I never wished for a black Wolverine or Cyclops. Conversely, I don't want to see a white Storm character. I just wanted characters like Bishop, Sunfire, Sunspot and others that represented different backgrounds. That is the way to go. I know this is all about marketing and reaching a new audience but I don't like it. Make new diverse characters who are special in their own right and have their own histories.
