If you haven't twigged to it yet: Comics are for every race, creed, color, religion, gender & orientation. And everyone deserves a hero. :)

For every creed and religion? Whoa, seriously? By that logic, even Vikings, Vandals, Nazis, Ottoman Empire savages, Spanish invaders who slew the Aztek and Incan empires, Confederates, Communists and Marxists deserve heroes too. And I guess he also thinks Neturei Karta, NAMBLA and the Scientologists deserve heroes. Say, maybe he thinks white supremacists and Islamic homophobes deserve "heroes"! And I thought he was against them! Gee, how much more illogical can Slott get? A great medium should not be abused by approving the notion that barbarian movements should be encouraged to exploit it.
And curious how somebody who writes a tweet like that's never argued in favor of introducing heroes and co-stars for mainstream books inspired by apostates from Islam like Brigitte Gabriel, 9-11 Families members like Tim Sumner, or even right-wingers who aren't depicted one-dimensionally.
Since we're on the subject, a tweet by one of Slott's cultists...
@DanSlott Amazing How can an Xmen fan remain so filled with hate and fear due to a handful of individuals within a minority.

...made me think of a little something originally published in The New Mutants #25 in the mid-80s, featuring a character named David Charles Haller, aka Legion and illegitimate son of Charles Xavier, and the following panel should give an idea what his premise involved:
such chillers as Sahih Muslim 6985 and Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177. Stuff that Slott, in all his obsessive blindness, deliberately turns a blind eye to.
It'll be interesting to see how many of the would-be readers bowing before Slott still want to read Claremont's X-books after they realize he did more or less write something they consider anathema to their narrow beliefs. And one can only wonder what Slott thinks of the same scribes now, no matter what their political standings today.
