....and Fail

Caleb points out that in the in-book advertisement re-purposing of the pretty sweet "real power of the DC universe" poster, DC chose to reconcile the poster with comic book dimensions by cutting out everyone who wasn't straight or white.



I should note that I'm sure they didn't do this on purpose, it's just an unfortunate oversight that doesn't help their current PR issues. Stay classy, DC.

Wow that's pretty clever how they kept all of their minorities together so they could get cut out and display DC's love of their arayan... er... straight... white... well someone really should have thought that one through a little better, hunh?

Oh wait you get to see the lesbian's arm and leg, see they kind of tried, sort of, ok no they did just fail, epic fail.

It's more striking to me that there are three times as many sexy lesbians (or sexy ladies with lesbian subtext) than there are minorities.

Well, Montoya's a minority, so there's one and a half times as many. But yes, I see your point.

Wonder Woman's not straight, although she is "courting" a guy right now...

That's true! But again, it's not a conspiracy theory, just an unfortunate thing, and Wondy would be in the center of the picture no matter what :).
