Let's just look at the Justice League. Back in the 2000s you had Black Lightning, Vixen and John Stewart added to the roster. Then in the '90s you had characters like Fire, Bloodwynd and the Ray on the team. And even back in the '80s you had a lineup with Vibe, Gypsy and Vixen again.
>>
And what's forced about any of these?
>>
>>120270644
It’s not forced if it’s just a new team anon, like it or not black people exist and like some of the black characters created. The more you childishly mewl about nothing the more successful the ACTUAL forced divirsity hires, like black spiderman and black Batman are pushed by the trannies and faggots here who want to spite specifically YOU.
>>
Dwayne Fucking MacDuffie is on the cover. No shit there's black characters from a black creator. A good creator too. Try harder.
>>
>>120270644
Black Lightning, John Stewart, Fire have been around since the 70s.
Vixen, Vibe, and Gypsy have been around since the 80s.
Bloodwynd has been around since the 90s.
The Ray as a mantle has been around since the fucking 40s.

You're a fucking retarded faggot OP.

John, Vixen, and Black Lightning are cool characters, though. Bloodwynd, Vibe, and Gypsy were not interesting, that’s why it was bad. Totally different situation there.
>>
>>120270719
McDuffie, in addition to being a really good writer, was able to bring in a new roster or group seamlessly. I don’t know why other writers can’t do what he did or why their attempts to bring in characters always feels awkward and forced. What is the McDuffie secret sauce here? Is there something other writers can learn from him?
>>
You're not wrong but the shills are arguing with you because they blow McDuffie because of the justice league cartoon
>>
>>120271235
Yeah, it was a good creative team. McDuffie brings these characters in and makes it work, and Benes makes everything great to look at. I don’t know why DC overcomplicates things.

>>120270644
I miss not every single comic being about white dudes being always presented as losers, immature idiots, effeminate weakling and the butt if every joke who always lose every fight or argument against women / blacks, always get lectured by angry women and just taking it like cucks and always having to be rescued by women at least once.
I miss comics being allowed to have sexy female characters in revealing costumes instead of ugly, feminist power fantasies that look and act like men.
I miss when comics where allowed to be about cool white male heroes who are smart, competent and masculine. People you could relay and who saved the day and the girl.
This new future DC event is exactly what I said it is. Every single white male character either got beaten up or rescued by a woman so far or had the white man be an idiot who gets humiliated for comedy but not a single comic features a female protagonist getting rescued by a white man or a female character being used for comedy.
And while white make characters lose their shirt every issue female characters all have their breast size and cleavage censored

Correct. When was the last time DC created a successful black character that wasn’t a legacy? It can’t be that hard, Tony Isabella did it with Black Lightning back when it was much harder to sell to management. Thinking minority characters need an established IP name to be successful is unbelievably ignorant.

The problem these days isn't selling it to management, but to the actual consumer. Most people do not give a shit about new characters and the multitude of failed launches over the past decade really shows that. Remember Alpha? Guy was touted as THE new hot shit in Amazing Spider-man and never appeared again after his miniseries. Sideways was a great character introduced, but his series died at 12 issues and we haven't seen him since despite seeing Tempus Fuginaut quite a bit. Kenan has barely popped up in the background of random events and the rest of the Justice League of China has been MIA. I doubt anyone cares about Bendis' new OC and she will fade into irrelevancy after he finally leaves.

That's because most new characters suck, because almost all of the people working at Marvel or DC suck.
>>
>>120273726
Alpha was bait. He was promoted as being Peter's sidekick but he was just supposed to be Peter if he got powers but no responsibility and was depowered at the end of the arc and forgotten until he got a random mini years later. Slott had no intention of doing anything else with him. And yet, people were actually very interested in him. I remember a lot of anons being excited.

>1. Black Hammer
The main female character (Golden Gail) is particularly abrasive and bitter while the most prominent male character (Abraham Slam) is presented as competent.

>2. Astro City (2016 revival)
Features a large cast of characters including competent white men.

>3. Supersons
Two young male leads going on adventures.

>4. Grayson
Been a while since I read it but I remember enjoying it and it features Dick Grayson in a leading role.

>5. Superman Year One
Frank Miller's take on Superman's early years. Features competent white male Superman.

>6. Gideon Falls
Main female character is proved wrong by supposedly crazy conspiracy theorist male. I haven't gotten to volume 3 of this one yet, just as a disclaimer.

>7. Animal Man (New 52)
Protagonist is a strong man who wants to protect his family. Wow I read way too many Jeff Lemire comics.

>8. Secret Six
Yes, I know there are lesbians and stuff but it still has Catman, Deadshot, Ragdoll and Bane written as competent leading male roles.

>9. The Flash (Joshua Williamson)
I recently reread the Rogues Reloaded arc and also the Force Quest arc. In the former the only female with a major role was Glider and in the latter while it included characters like that one strong lady, Barry was still written as competent.

>10. Hawkeye by Matt Fraction
I know Kate is heavily featured in the series which you probably don't like, but Clint is still given plenty of badass moments and Kate still ends up in danger fairly often (Like when she gets caught impersonating Madame Masque)

>10. Hawkeye by Matt Fraction
>the flash
All these 3 comics alone feature the male hero regularly getting beaten up and rescued by women
Grayson and Hawkmen are especially prime sjw examples with almost every issue the white male lead being presented as inferior to a women and constantly getting humiliated or ridiculed by her while the white male character just takes it like a cuck.
Every time they fight a female supporting character they always lose. Grayson or Hawkmen never beat women at anything and never are shown in the right.
Neither of these comics ever make any jokes at the expense of anybody else except the white male protagonist.
There was an entire issue about Grayson getting equally harassed for „comedy“ witj him having to run around half naked, meanwhile female characters were never depicted in a sexual way.
I am pretty sure neither comics even once feature the female side characters having to be rescued by the men
The flash run also introduced a new black female characters who literals always beat him up or rescued him with the flask always having to ask them for help
I haven’t read the other comics but I am sure that it is full if sjw garbage like that as well.

1. haven’t read it but that is not what I asked for. I asked for female protagonist who regularly lose against white men, who are weak or who regularly get humiliated for comedy. So basically I asked for a comic that writes females like sjws write white male characters

2. haven’t read it

3. they regularly need help from women. Again unlike female Leads who never need help from whites men

4. that was absolute sjw shit. Interaktiv feature every example of what I don’t want in a comic

5. haven’t read it

6. again, not what I asked for. Judging by your wording she is just another „tough strong wyman“ and he is depicted as crazy, immature and pathetic with every joke being at his expense and her never once getting rescued by a white men

8. female characters are presented as more mature and better then men

9. like you Said yourself the Moment the strong woman shows up Barry Jobs to her. He never defeats her in a fight and even needs her help. She also regularly disrespects him and he takes it like a cuck

10. worst sjw shit there is. Entire point of the comic is too destroy a white najj KH e character so that a female sjw character can steal his title. Female characters never once gets rescued or beaten by the white male lead but he regularly gets beaten or rescued by her
>>
>>120274905
Alright I guess you win this argument. The closest thing I can think of that fits what you'd prefer is the Harley Quinn comics written by Karl Kesel. In those comics Harley's plans constantly leave her in a worst spot before (Up to and including her getting killed and going to hell) and throughout the first story arc her non-powered male henchman Lewis is the most reasonable person in the cast.

Also, for a more recent example, there's I Hate Fairyland. In that series the main character Gert is a horrible person who very often is subjected to slapstick. Although I will concede that her two greatest foes in he comic are a white woman (Queen Cloudia) and a black little girl (Happy).

Plastic Man is a jokey character and also one of the strongest members of the team. Do you want every white guy to be a boring drone that gives Hal a run for his money?

Element Man is white and wasn't a joke.

Tom Strong wasn't a joke nor did he need rescuing every second.

And finally the most bitchy/selfish character was a fucking black guy.

Just admit you want white gary stus already.

>>120270644
Vixen is one of those characters whose continued push is a mystery to me. They try every few years to push her but she's a shitty, boring character with shitty, boring powers and no real personality so she pretty quickly goes away until they try again. I get why they did it at that time because of JLU but not all the others. Fuck even on JLU she was a shitty, boring character with shitty, boring powers except they gave her a hot design that was then copied over to the comics.

McDuffie was a really good TV writer and did a great job on Justice League (I know Ben 10 fans don't like him for killing their incest ship) but he was a pretty middling comic writer. Maybe Static was good, I don't know, but his JLA run wasn't all that great and even ignoring all the problems he had with it Beyond! wasn't particularly good and his Fantastic Four run kind of sucked.
>>
>>120276474
What? She's a bad character. If she makes you coom that's great but don't try to pretend she's a great and interesting character when she's not. She would be (and was) as forgotten as the rest of the Detroiters if McDuffie didn't have a boner for her.
