Each week I'm going to stick up a new topic video designed to spark a little conversation and debate to dig into comic culture and comic related media.

This week's topic is all about race and gender swaps of characters. Or as one lovely individual pointed out to me in a comment thread, the passing of the mantle from a character of one race or gender to another.

Like Steve Rogers passing the mantle of Captain America on to Sam Wilson, or a woman picking up Thor's hammer.

The question is whether or not you support comic publishers and movie studios doing this sort of thing to try being more diverse, or if they should try creating brand new characters all together?

Check out the video for my thoughts and be sure to comment with your opinion!

Also be sure to check out the brand spanking new MetaComix website for more great news, reviews, and other comic related content.
