Comment Any kind of publicity is good publicity. (Score 1) 608

Just off the top my head I can think of a latino superhero ( Araña ) and two homosexual ones (Apolo and Midnighter from the Authority) and I'm pretty sure that anyone who's more of a comic book enthusiast than me can think of many more. Superheroes who are minorities are nothing new so to me the article is either a) just the typical sensationalist ploy to improve readership from whom ever posted the article or b) Marvel tooting their own horn to sell more copies of the book. All publicity at the end of the day.
