Now, what's all this crazy talk about "Whitewashing"?
Lately, there have been a few complaints in the comics blogosphere about the "whitewashing" of certain ethnic comic characters, particularly the female ones, to hide or downplay their true ethnicity, even in the case of long-standing characters who have been around since the 70's or 80's.
Why, one blogger even came up with her own term for it: "Vixenification."
To which I respond: What the hell are you TALKING about? There's NO SUCH THING.
Why, look at Misty Knight here.
Why, she doesn't look "whitewashed" at all! She looks like a strong, attractive, capable Hispanic woman.
Just as she's always been drawn.
Just as John Byrne drew her back in the 70's...
