Excuse me, but, I consider one of the biggest bone headed (I refuse to use the gutter term) moves I ever heard of was when someone launched a post about comic book characters in a conservative forum during a particularly crucial period in American development.
The article sure managed to high light some of the worst writers for the comics of their time.
The idiots whose short-sighted policies and scummy business practices have led to decades of declining sales have done more damage than any supervillains.
You guys should see the horrible Spiderman comic that was made for Children's services in the 80s. Spiderman was molested as a child!! That's not really accurate, Peter Parker was molested as a child. It's still really awful.
Marvel does a lot of custom comics for corporate clients. These take place outside of the Marvel continuity and involve all manner of dubious plot elements. The critical thing is that they sell the client's product or viewpoint.
#7 is already stupid. They make it sound like Asians look like The Simpsons. Also, it's not the color yellow the Green Lanterns don't like. The color yellow is just the color of the Sinestro Corps and it's those members, not the color, the Lanterns dislike. And how is the nickname "Pieface" racist? I can see shovel face but not pie face.
As for #1, what the hell?
