NEW YORK, NY – Looks like these days, comics are getting pretty progressive as they change up a lot of established, mainstream characters.
First we heard about Archie Comics, and its lead character, Archie Andrews. Archie was killed off while saving Kevin Keller, the comics first openly gay character.
Then there was Marvel’s Thor. The Mighty God of Thunder is now a goddess. Yep, he became a she.
Marvel’s not stopping with the changes. The comic book company also announced that the next Captain America will be African American.
The changes to Marvel’s characters are all part of new story lines in the comics. No word when or if we’ll see any of these changes on the big screen.
