I don't think you're in any position to judge what is normal.

@JGoldman10,
Maybe hearing this will mellow you out a bit, from the BBC.

Quote:
Marvel Comics has unveiled a new half-black, half-Latino Spider-Man, who replaces the recently killed-off Peter Parker.

Miles Morales, introduced in Marvel's Ultimate Fallout Issue 4, is a nerdy teenager from New York City.

Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said the new web-slinger "speaks to our rich cultural heritage" in the US.

Parker died in Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160 in June during a fight with his bitter enemy, Green Goblin.

Like Parker, Morales is a geeky, working-class teenager from the boroughs of New York City.

Morales lives with his black and Latino parents in ethnically diverse Brooklyn, while Parker was white and raised by his aunt and uncle in a mainly white neighbourhood in Queens.

"Going into this we knew we wanted to make a statement about the 21st century," said Alonso.

The Marvel editor-in-chief, whose mother was from England and father from Mexico, said he cried when Barack Obama was elected president "partly because he was African-American but largely because of the fact that he was mixed race".

Alonso added that when Morales "peels off his mask now, he's going to have a very different look and he's going to resonate emotionally with all sorts of new readers".

He told AFP news agency Spidey writer Brian Michael Bendis is Jewish and has two adopted children from Africa.

"So I know for him it was definitely personal," Alonso said.

I was just looking at the BBC website fot today, not doing a trawl of DC comics in the UK. They're showing Watchmen on the Telly on Sunday. In your book is Watchmen British?

Most British comics fell by the wayside in the 1990s, the Beano is still going strong though. Here's some pictures of their most famous character, Dennis the Menace.

@izzythepush,
Again, in case you missed it, I apologize if I offended you - when I asked if the English make normal cartoon I WAS JOKING.

The English probably think we Americans are weird.

@izzythepush,
I am more of a DC person, I am more interested in DC Comics-related stuff.

Apparently, DC Comics is somewhat popular in Britian- I Googled BBC and DC Comics:

@izzythepush,
Is that the British version of Dennis the Menace?:

The American version is the only one I know about.

To answer the topic question -

I LIKE ACTION HEROINES or SUPERHEROINES if:

THEY DON'T USE WITCHCRAFT
THEY AREN'T SACRELIGIOUS OR BLASPHEMOUS
THEY ARE MODEST IN APPEARENCE AND AREN'T SLUTTY OR TRAMPY

Too many action heroines and superheroines don't fit theise criteria.

I think most of the people who create these characters are male and aren't Christians.

DC's vertigo line certainly attracted some of the big British born comic authors, Neil Gaiman with The Sandman and Alan Moore withV for Vendetta

Moore created John Constantine during his run on Swamp Thing, Constantine was later spun off to his own series Hellblazer

other British born creators i like are Grant Morrison, Jamie Delano and Peter Milligan

Morrison had a great run with lesser known character Animal Man and a glorious stint on Doom Patrol, he also wrote one of my favourite Vertigo one shots Kill Your Boyfriend
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b4/Kill_Your_Boyfriend_cover.jpg

Delano wrote the first 40 issues of Hellblazer, setting the tone for the comic starring Moore's creation John Constantine

Milligan revived a lesser known DC character Shade, the Changing Man and also wrote my second favourite Vertigo one shot The Eaters

No, Americans stole the name. It's similar to the way that American sparkling wine labled domestic 'champagne' is illegal in the EU. Champagne has to be from the Champagne region of France. The film Dennis the Menace was released here as 'Dennis.'

As I said earlier, most British comics fell into decline in the 1990s. What British DC comics there are in the supermarket, tend to be aimed at young children ( 7 and under). There is a chain of stores called Forbidden Planet that stock all manner of comics, but they're American imports.

I AM ATTACKING THESE CHARACTERS BECAUSE THEY SHOULD BE DRESSED MORE MODESTLY.

Like all the male action heroes or superheroes, in skin-tight body suits, shorts that draw attention to the crotch area, and capes?
