Did you know that Captain Marvel was once a Black woman? Nope neither did I, but I have to confess I’m more of a DC fan.
IO9 details the evolution of Monica Rambeau, as they call her, “…the captain Marvel comics forgot.” Gee I wonder why she was forgotten?
Anyway, it’s a rather interesting read. The comments are pretty good too, apparently not everyone has forgotten her. Most of the commentators talk about how much they love her character which, considering the fact that the demographics of comic book fans is overwhelmingly white and male, is pretty big. Looks to me like if the writers put a great character out there, the fans will read it, even if it’s a WOC
