On Wednesday July 6 , prolific Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis announced that they will be relaunching the Invincible Iron Man title with Riri, a young black woman, as its groundbreaking new protagonist. Bendis, who's currently writing the title, said that he came to the decision to create the character after realizing how underrepresented young black women were on Marvel's pages. But Riri isn't just filling Stark's shoes; she's reconfiguring them. However, the news highlighted an even larger issue: the fact that Marvel isn't hiring very many women or people of color to pen these diverse titles.

I'll definitely talk with her about my concerns, and will be spending time with her family over the upcoming holidays so that will be a good chance to see how they treat me. Mormon chicks have way damaged views on human intimacy. I couldn't stop thinking about it all day after reading it. I don't want that to happen. Thank you so much for this blog.
My dad was in the bishopric for most of my childhood, and I was never the person you describe here. I tell her there's no pressure and we'll just see how things play out. Mormons are one of the few remaining groups with healthy women. Thanks for adding your experiences. Real love just happens.
