Guess Who’s Back

Whats up guys!
Finally after 3 long weeks Battle Geekz is back! Tonight at 830 we will be back to recording the podcast. Its been a long couple of days. I have recently quit my job of ten years and decided to move. I felt like it was time for a change in my daily routine. I wanted to move on with focusing on the show and the things I love.

Its gonna be a good year! More guests, contests and content!

The next couple of shows will not be live since my live setup isn’t completed yet but you will get the audio. Thank you to all those who have supported us and stuck by our sides through out the year. You are AMAZING!

Diversity in Comics

Written by James M. Smith 

@jamesmsmith

The Falcon is now going to be Captain America, Thor is now a lady, Batgirl has gone all Veronica Mars.  Finally, it looks like we are getting some interesting variety in our comic book characters.  And that’s a good thing.  Don’t get me wrong.  My concern is this a genuine change of heart?  Or merely a stunt to get press?

 

To me, the ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation of a character is only as important as the part it plays in the story.  If the character is interesting and the story engaging, than great!  But if you have poor writing or a boring story and try to mask that by saying “She’s gay!” well than, it’s still a crap story.  Look at something like Brian K. Vaugn’s Saga.  It’s full of badass characters and amazing pew-pew super powers.  There are a lot of great female characters including the narrator.  These characters aren’t interesting because they are women, they’re interesting characters who happen to be woman.  Do you see what I’m saying?  Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series isn’t a beloved character because J. K. Rowling wrote with him being gay in mind.  He’s a perfect Obi Wan type leader, who, happens to be gay.

 
I know this is a much, much wider issue than I have time or the intellect to write on with any sort of authority.  And I’m sure there are a hundred and one ways to agree/disagree with me on this subject.  But, as long as these new takes on Marvel and DC’s characters are being taken seriously and have good writers to back them, well then I’m excited for the new world of possibilities the big two are heading in.
