X-Men has been considered woke from its inception. Can't wait to see mouth breathers complain nonstop when they see the anti mutant rallies and rhetoric that mimick some of the rallies some of these chuds head attend and complain that it's somehow woke🤡

@AmazingFILMporg - lol. Just openly admit that these comments infuriate you and you obsess over them.

Nobody is buying into you masquerading your anger with clown and laughing emojis.

Just be honest and admit that you're angry and butthurt. You claim others get mad, but the only one I ever see upset and irritated is you. 🤔

@AmazingFILMporg - No one is going to complain,they are a diverse group of characters, it's when they race swap characters that people complain.

If you put Storm and Bishop on the team no need to race swap any other character.

@AmazingFILMporg - which is why Betsy Braddock should be a white girl who transitions through mutation to Asian. It takes this woke thing to its natural evolution.

@AmazingFILMporg - There was no such thing as 'woke' in 1963 and every progressive snowflake has tried to shoehorn their favorite marginalized group into what 'Stan and Jack were REALLY talking about' when Stan Lee admitted 100s of times he used the idea of Mutants because he was tapped out of radioactive shit to bite people and wanted a baked in excuse for not coming up with origin stories.

Try harder.

@Batmangina -“There was no such thing as “woke” in 1963.” Marcus Garvey from the 1920s and Leadbelly from the 1930s say otherwise. Nice try, though.

@AmazingFILMporg - No, it has not. Woke today are people fighting imaginary battles because they cannot get their own lives in order.

Sometimes I believe the users on this site can be a bit too harsh on you, Josh. But every now and then, I start to see why.

What a terrible and pointless article. I think it’s very probable we see both Psylocke and Thunderbird in the MCU.
ObserverIO

@BreakTheCode - If they're doing Giant Size X-Men, we've gotta have Thunderbird.

And the reason he hasn't appeared in the comics much since the '70s is not because he was a stereotype, but because he died on their second mission against Count Nefaria.

Which you might think would be problematic in the movies, but he has a brother (brothers actually), so his death will just serve as good character fodder.

And we already had an Asian Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse. Okay so she was Chinese instead of Japanese, but they all look the same to Hollywood.

There's no reason that Betsy Braddock can't be a British woman of Japanese descent. I'm pretty sure we'll get both her and Thunderbird, at some point.

@BreakTheCode - Yup, I mean they may not do the white womans mind in the body of an Asian bit but ample times in the comics that wasn't so and ways to do it tastefully anyway IF they wanted. I mean she was a white woman in the body of a white woman for 13yrs before the looking Asian bit (initialy altered to look Asian not in the body of Kwannon).

As is the two were seperated again a while ago so Betsy is back being a white woman and Kwannon being an entirely seperate character in her own rights at the same time with Betsy taking the mantle of Cpt Briton and Kwannon that of Psylocke.

What I COULD see them doing is bringing in both together as a duo, maybe even as a couple with Kwannon going by the hero name Revanche (as that was the title during the period when they were merged). Could then do a short period where some event merges them in a film or show (or switches their minds instead) but seperated again by the end of it, easy. That or they simply make her half sister to Brian with an Asian mother would be fair enough for most I think even if not ideal for some.

Thunderbird is even easier to bring in, they'll just probably consult with actual Native Americans to fine tune his appearance etc to address any percieved issues with stereotypes and tropes. That won't auto mean he changes much at all but hard to call them out if on consultation with actual Apache's they get their nod of approval on his outfit etc.

@ObserverIO - Defo need to see Thunderbird in the x-men for the MCU (maybe with a less generic powerset this time as well too lol).


Rosraf
Rosraf - 2/24/2024, 9:14 PM
@Apophis71 - Didn't Thunderbird's brother (and at times doppleganger) Warpath already appear in the Days of Future Past movie?
Apophis71
Apophis71 - 2/25/2024, 5:16 AM
@Rosraf - Probably but not 100% on that

Well, all I can say thank goodness Soft Serve didn’t make this list because the MCU is in desperate need of a mutant who can shit any flavor ice cream.

4 Xmen storyline that work in the MCU (and 4 that don't).
5 controversial storylines that include the X Men
6 powerful x men the MCU can't have

...
BraxtonHicks
BraxtonHicks - 2/24/2024, 12:31 PM
5 Woke storylines the MCU can't use (and 5 that can).

I always have to roll my eyes anytime an article on here reads “would be problematic” or avoid racial stereotypes.” Most adults can overlook things; understand the past and not let things bother or trigger them, but these new little overgrown children who go into convulsions or write soppy goop like this article trying to tell us how to think versus the populace determining for themselves how they perceive something… that’s the crap I can’t stand and hope that Woke brainwashing will die a swift death soon.

Oh look another hand-picked list by Josh that he’s expecting us all to agree with

Dumb article. Psylocke is one of the most renowned X-men.
Sabre81

@Mother[frick]erJon - I was going to say the same thing. Psylocke?!? WTF, Josh!
Origame
Origame - 2/24/2024, 12:39 PM
Ok, I find it funny Josh used Stacy x as something disney would never adapt because of her pheromone powers even though they're basically the same power as star fox. And he never expressed any issues with Eros being introduced in the mcu.

@Origame - That's a good contradiction you pointed out. They probably don't want a prostitute character but definitely not impossible with an R rated Deadpool

I'm all for Psylocke coming back, especially if fine AF Olivia Munn wants to play her again.

Make psylocke an Asian and her have her own personality, and nothing wrong with Thunderbird. That’s it.
ObserverIO
ObserverIO - 2/24/2024, 1:22 PM
I don't see how Magneto being Xorn is such a problem just because he wasn't a real Asian. It was a disguise! Yellowface, Blackface, Transface (is that even a thing?) whatever, if you're trying to throw someone off the scent, how is that bad?

Does anyone have any recommendations for other sites that focus on CBM news? Something I can check fairly regularly/daily.

Ideally I’m looking for a site that solely focuses on comic movie news but I’d also be down a site that focuses on movies in general but has a strong focus on CBM news.

I follow/subscribe to a few YouTube channels so I’m covered on that end. I gave up social media so I don’t need any recommendations for FB or IG pages. I could be open to Reddit as long as the forums are legit and not just unverified rumors.

Anyone have any recommendations?
