The State of Marvel Comics' Treatment of Indigenous Characters
The State of Marvel Comics' Treatment of Indigenous Characters
With the recent beginning of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze’s Black Panther, and the ongoing success of non-white characters like Kamala Khan, Miles Morales and Sam Wilson at Marvel, the publisher is eager to present itself as a strong supporter of diversity. In fact, Ms. Marvel editor Sana Amanat appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers in January and met with President Barack Obama at a White House event in March in her role as the company's director of content and character development. Ironically, at the same time, I was considering dropping all the publisher’s books from my pull list entirely over the publisher’s current line-wide problems in the representation of indigenous people.

Who are the greatest ever X-Men? We’re going to try to answer that question with your help, by putting the spotlight on different individual X-Men from across the franchise’s long history and pairing up your votes with the votes and opinions of our panel of highly opinionated X-Men fans. Your scores will be added to ours to determine the top 100 X-Men. Today is Dazzler day; we're asking you to rate Dazzler's greatness, and we may be very disappointed in you as a result. But we couldn't just put Dazzler to the vote on her own, as much as she deserves the spotlight, so we've also offered up a few other, less disco-themed X-Men, including the hero who is his own best friend, and another great Guthrie.
