What if I were Romeo in black jeans?
really makes u think
I used to read the occasional What If comic when I was a kid. Lady Captain Britain if not a woke invention. I used to really enjoy them. It was an opportunity for the writers and artist to step outside of canon and just go wild. I'm definitely onboard for this. Any idea when?
Originally scheduled for Spring 2021 but not sure if COVID wrecked those plans or not.
I had a love-hate relationship with Marvel's What If? series. Most of them were interesting takes, but most of them were also "everyone dies horribly."
What if Black Panther was white.
Before anyone complains that could have an interesting take on racism and an alternate history of the world where white people were not the majority of superheroes and whatnot. Don't totally kill me for bringing up that idea when I know it normally would come from a bad place.
My point is while you have the racist and sexist fanbois crying you could toss that in there as a sort of token for them for the ultimate in throwing their own bullshit at them. Look, we gave you a white black panther so all of your points are now invalid because we did it to him also.You might be able to do that with a captain marvel also.
Beyond that, I actually might be somewhat interested in this given my complete boredom and lack of caring about the present MCU. I think this sort of mix mash brings out the real love of the character itself and how it can morph to other diverse perspectives while maintaining it's essence. This one seems like it might actually be interesting and look deep into the characters rather than just being about their powers.
Sounds kind like gender-flipping What Ifs. What if Africa was white and Europe was black kind of thing.
Like Farnham's Freehold.
Or the Sydney Poiter movie “White Man’s Burden”
