allyourfavesarebi replied to your post:MCU and DC movies are both equally pro white dude…but cass cain existed at one point and babs was disabled *conveniently forgets the erasure of both* and what about batwoman and her girlfriend that she can never marry represenTATION!!!1!1!!
they’ve conveniently forgotten all of this though and more.
it’s laughable to me. like yeah marvel has been just as shitty at times, but they have made huge changes in the past few years. obviously they can still do a lot better but it’s ridiculous that ppl want to disregard what they have done and claim that it doesn’t count bc marvel is ‘just doing it for publicity’ (which like, are they not supposed to promote new series?) especially when those changes are largely the result of marginalized ppl at marvel fighting tooth and nail for progress. meanwhile dc’s creators are jumping ship l o l
Marvel is currently just as shitty is the problem, and yes, they have done some good things.
But currently, DC is giving me a well-adjusted lesbian fighting for justice and Marvel … is giving me evil bisexual stereotypes including an asshole who stole a woman’s body and an asshole who uses his powers to rape people. That’s before we even get into how badly Marvel fucked up and is continually fucking up Xavin.
Yeah DC erased Oracle. Marvel murdered Charles to prop up Scott Summers and let the Red Skull muck about in his brain. (After years of going back and forth about his disability in the first place.)
Yeah, DC erased Cass Cain. Where is Eli Bradley again, these days? Where is his uncle? Where is any indication of the Bradley family history in the promotion of SamCap? You don’t have to reboot an entire universe to participate in the erasure of your character.
Yes, Marvel is giving us female Thor. That does nothing to undo their happy and zealous fridging rampages that they’ve been on lately, re: Sharon, Cassie, Rikki, etc.
Those aren’t in the past. THOSE ARE IN THE PRESENT, and telling people that they have to think that is “better than DC” in any way is what is actually laughable.
Marvel should be congratulated for the good things they are doing - as should DC. But to pretend that either company is a ~friend of diversity~ is utter nonsense. For every shitty thing DC is doing, Marvel is doing something equally shitty. For every good thing Marvel is doing, DC is doing something equally good. If we’re going to give Marvel cookies for SamCap and Female Thor, then by all means, let’s give DC cookies for Wally West.
DC has queer, female, and POC characters. If fandom thought DC meant more than the Batfamily, they might actually know this.
