Recently, the Appendix to the Handbook of the Marvel Universe uploaded an entry on NFL SuperPro. While reading it, I noticed the uproar caused by the Hopi nation about their portrayal by Buzz Dixon in issue #6. They were outraged, and justifiably so.

With that in mind, how have different minority groups reacted to various characters of a given ethnic group? How have, for instance, African-Americans reacted to the Black Panther or James Rhodey as Iron Man? How have Natives reacted to characters like Wyatt Wingfoot and Red Wolf? How have Asians reacted to characters like Sunfire?

I don't know, and that's why I'm asking.
