    Lets be perfectly frank here, they killed of Rhodes because there was no way that they could promote Tony Starks new black friend if his old black friend was still on the block.


I was wondering where Rhodes was, given the Punisher story line currently under way.

    If ever there was a male equivalent of 'women in refridgerators', Rhodes death is that.


Why can't Tony have two black friends? I don't get it. More to the point, Rhodes is in the movies. I never would have dreamed he'd get killed in the comics.

    How diverse is that?


Anti-diverse, if your speculation is accurate.


    Quote:
    Diversity at Marvel has become a marketing tool, not the moral responsibility it should be.


Personally, I would rather diversity be perceived not as a marketing tool, nor even as a moral responsibility, but as an aesthetic preference. Who wants to look at nothing but white males all day long? The Punisher TV series is aesthetically effective for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the inclusion of five prominent female characters, three of whom are white, while the other two are Farsi.
