Cool shouldn't there be more supermen from ethnic minorities?

I think it's a bit lame not having a chinese superman or an Indian superman from Krypton. Are they all carcausian on Kypton? Hmm, I think in the new film there should be a bunch of travellers from Krypton who had gone on a long voyage (star trek ?) when Krypton was destroyed only to come back to find no trace of their planet. This brings them to our universe which they want to conquer!

Now that would make a new superman film cool as he would be out numbered but maybe have other friends who could help him like Thor and the Hulk? HA! What a twist! mad stick out tongue evil face smokin' rolling on floor laughing wink

By the twenty-eight moons of Jupiter, you are not making any sense. Hulk and Thor are from different company. And I think all the Kryptonian's had the same skin color...it was not Earth...

Oh yeaaah, let's be completely political correct and make a chinese superman, a hispanic superman, a black superman, a filipino superman, a native american superman, a gay superman (although Apollo is), a hindu superman, an egyptian superman, a greek superman....

Please!

I understand what dami means...he's essentially saying that most comic book characters..especially the ones that are all powerful..are generally represented as being white males...

...It does say something about our culture if caucasion males are predominantly used to represent the most dominant/powerful heroes....

Most of the times minorities/women in comics are represented as being second teir characters..having lesser abilities...and their stories always are based on some sort of racial/ethnic stereotype. Their names usually contain some sort of silly reference to their respective race...(ie "black" lightning) which usually includes an equally ridiculous catch phrase("Sweet Jesus"<--Luke Cage)

Their definately is more diversity now...but there's still much more that needs to be done to represent other types of people in comic books...

This was done by the way, in one of the old Superman films.

If you want an ethnic Superman, you can always buy a foreign Superman comic and it can give somewhat of a new impression.

Namor was drawned very Asian looking in his earliest comics, especially when they found him in full-fledged beard when he was hiding his identity.

God frobid! Mike Tyson as superman! ESSSH! Who's Steel? Never heard of him! All this names you quoted ! Never heard of them! Are they DC comic heroes cus I'm strictly Marvel! Marvel for life and thats why I stopped reading DC cus it was still catering for kiddish themes. No disrespect but people mature.

I dont know any famous ethnic hero apart from black panter, storm, that funny guy in avengers (his costumes a big joke!) then where are the chinese guys anyway? I thought we'd have a martial arts expert who was American chinese like Michael Chang the tennis player a while ago? Hey, America's changed a lot since 1789.

I just wondered why the man of steel (DC) and Wolverine (Marvel) are both Caucarsian). Where are the Indian or European dudes? Hmmmm
Marvel's International aint it? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
