Comic Book.com Interview with Jim Lee talks about Batman V. Superman

DEN OF THE GEEK talks to The Rock about his DC Role.



MY RESPONSE TO ARTICLE ABOVE:

DC has been making strides to become more diverse with the introduction of the new 52.  DC is making strides.  The following are titles which feature diversity.

EARTH 2:  A black SUPERMAN, an Arabic DR. FATE, a Gay Green Lantern, Hawkgirl seems to be a women of color, and many of the supporting characters are people of color.

JUSTICE LEAGUE:  CYBORG, Former Member: ELEMENT WOMAN, New Member: POWER RING.

JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED: Alana Strange is Black, Equinox is Native American.

BATWING....The Dude is Black

TEEN TITANS:  BUNKER is gay.

BATWOMAN: Lesbian

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS:  STARFIRE--yes an alien woman of color counts in my book.

FUTURE'S END: MISTER TERRIFIC, Half of Firestorm, Some Black dude wearing a flag for a cape.

I could go on and on as to where DC has made strides to become more diverse.  The only difference is that DC isn't replacing a major hero, they are expanding it.

And to be honest with you there are more Diverse Heroes that DC has yet to put into the New 52.

The only complaint I have with DC and Marvel is that their are so few Native American heroes.

But the good thing is that the ones who have survived are very memorable.

DC: Dawnstar and Black Condor.  Oh and of Course Super-Chief (someone I would give a better name).  

So I think that people need to do their research when it comes to claiming DC is not diverse enough.  After all they don't seem to know that DC did do some issues with a Black Wonder Woman already... why is it taking Marvel so long to come up with a Black Captain American?

More Soon...

Go Forth and Do Well
