      Diversity wasn't an issue in the 60's? HUh??? Really? If that were true why was there a civil rights movement?


    The '60s was the START of the civil rights movement. American corporations didn't respond to the changing times until the '80s, which means the issue wasn't on any corporate agenda until then.


The civil rights movement started earlier. It just culminated in important actions being taken in the 60s. Anyway, the point here is that most superheroes from the 60s are white because of historical racism. Using only those heroes today is a reflection of that racism. I'm not saying Marvel should have made these characters a different race, but this cast is clearly not diverse and doesn't reflect the times today.

      Good question, maybe they could start with including some of the non white members in the pic above?


    So then it's Alvaro's that you're accusing of racism?


I hope you're just being facetious and not serious.

    I was just wondering how consistent you were willing to be in the pursuit of diversity in entertainment. You clearly find it offensive to see an Avengers team made up of mostly white people. Are you just as offended to see a basketball team made up mostly of black people?


That analogy is completely ridiculous on the face of it. A basketball team is pulled together mostly based on the merit of the players. The Avengers are fictional characters who can be anything the writers want them to be.
