Agent Carter Panel at San Diego Comic Con

There were exactly four people who got to ask questions during this panel

All four were women

Three of them were dressed as Agent Carter

And they all asked questions surrounding the fact that they loved hearing the story of a strong woman like Agent Carter in a world that seems to exclusively show the stories of strong men

 So if you were wondering why this show is a big deal: That’s why.

Like, let me explain a little bit more about why this upsets me. Recently, we had Kate Bishop, America Chavez, Sif and Valkyrie all in the spotlight. Kate was a relatively new character, America was a very new character, and Sif and Valkyrie have been around for decades.

America had a break out role in Young Avengers. She’s not a legacy anything. She’s wholly her own person, not taking the role of any white person or man. And she’s a Latina lesbian. 

Where is she now? What are they going to do with her?

Kate Bishop has been around a bit longer. She’s kind of a legacy of Clint but she’s also wholly her own person, with her own team, and friends and relations that have nothing to do with Clint. She was in two critically acclaimed books, with writers who talked about how great she was, etc. etc. Young Avengers ended. She’s not in the miniseries. Hawkeye is ending. 

Where is she going to be? What are they going to do with her?

Sif is not a legacy of anybody, but she has been relegated to a supporting role for Thor for decades. She got her own arc, with a fantastic woman writing her, and a great artist. The book was not relaunched with a new #1. And I wasn’t really into comics when Sif launched but as far as I know it did not get very much publicity. It got canceled.

Where is she now? What are they going to do with her?

Valkyrie has been around for ages. She’s been an Avenger. She was leading her own all-woman team. The writer was doing more to explore her sexuality and confirm that she was not straight. For a lot of reasons, the book got canceled.

Where is she now? What are they going to do with her?

I’m not interested in getting attached to a new female character that they’re going to shelve as soon as this particular hype is over. I want them to continue to develop the women they already have. And if they are going to to create new characters, I want more new characters like America Chavez.

What they’re doing with the Asgardian women right now does not impress me. And I don’t expect it to last. Because it hasn’t. Because they don’t value the female characters they have, and thoughtlessly jamming more on the roster is not going to make things better.

So now, in addition to once again falsely accusing these “couple of disgruntled fans” of intentionally distorting the truth or lying, Brevoort’s blaming them for something that he has no evidence whatsoever they had anything to do with.

But it’s the anti-Remender folks who have axes to grind and commit “libel,” right?

Considering such past gems as, “What rights do I have that you don’t?” and the fact that he approved the racist caricature in the first place, this response isn’t remotely surprising, but it’s still pathetic.

I don’t want to go so far as to say that only a white writer would think to have Sam Wilson become Captain America, because that’s not the case. I do, however, think that only a writer who isn’t trying hard enough would come up with that already-been-done story. More important, I think only a writer caught up in existing racial ideologies would think it is a good idea that a black man assumes the identity of a white man, as if that is the pinnacle of identity.

Let me be clear, so there is no misunderstanding, any writer working in comics could have come up with the idea of Falcon taking over for Captain America. It is a no-brainer. What is troubling to me—and is something that I’ve talked about before—is that in his forty-plus year history, Falcon has no truly defining story. Even the best Falcon stories are either mediocre or forgettable, and now, after all this time, the character gets to do something memorable by taking over the job of a white guy. This is the real reason why Marvel’s Diversity & Representation 2014 initiative is such a joke. It is all superficial (not to mention temporary), and it only perpetuates the notion that in order for people of color and women to achieve greatness, they must literally fill the shoes of a white man. Gimme a break.
