Hey Party People,

I’m back with part two of my look at diversity in superhero comics! As I showed in part 1, superhero comics still suffer from a lack of diversity. In case you missed it, you can check it out here:

So now the question is, what can we- or rather publishers do about it. As I lay out in the video, there are lots of different ways to increase diversity, but only one way to make everyone happy. Check it out!

Hey Party people,

Welcome to another year of Super-hero Pow! I can’t tell you how much I wanted to get this video out before February- but didn’t happen. My goal is to get one video out a month, and I’m behind already. If you’d like to help, encouragement will do it! I’m a fool for anyone telling me how great I am- it happens so rarely (sniff). Subscribing to the YouTube channel helps a lot too. Last year, after Super-Hero Pow’s launch and then YouTube’s rule changes, I wasn’t quite sure what to do. Then a hundred of you subscribed, and well I felt obligated to keep it rolling. So seriously, a simple “atta boy” keeps me from going to bed early.

So this time I tackle the main event of comicbooks these days- diversity! As the exact opposite of diversity myself, I thought do we really need diversity characters anymore? Obviously in the 1940’s, the superhero community was whiter than a news caster’s teeth! But it’s the 21th century now, the Black Panther was the biggest movie, hell a black guy was just President, and the new President dyes himself orange! Clearly white males are the new minority! Or are they??? Check out the video to learn more!
