It seems like this week, more than most, race/gender have been hot button topics especially when dealing with our fictional heroes of the super hero genre. Headlines such a "Thor's a Babe!" or "Cap: The New Black" are now all the rage but "Why?"

Are their creative artists trying to right the lily white past of our super powered heroes as activists? Sound off below and let's have some fun!
