Hi good people,
So I am a big comic book reader (love X-Men, Superman, Spider-Woman) and was really excited about the new core Avengers NOW title from Marvel.
While I found the title a bit boring issue 2 does the flashback to team gathering and cuts to the recruitment of Manifold who is shown in some form of Aboriginal paint (which isn't the part the bothers me LOL) a few pages later cut to the present Wolverine questions Manifolds capability with the reference to when he was recruited he was in a diaper.
I know there are a million of these references a day but this one killed the title (and anything else by Jonathan Hickman) for me as being both needlessly nasty (from the mouth of a hero no less) and maybe even ignorantly racist.
I appreciate that even in the flashback we don't see a diaper or loin cloth and that Australian Aboriginies didn't wear either traditionally and I maybe being hyper sensitive but this still rankled me to pay for something that I found offensive.
