This is hardly the worst depiction of non-White people in this comic, as you’ll see in a bit. Of course, we know what the American world view was like in 1942, and “it was a different time” can stretch pretty far, but it’s still shocking sometimes to see it rendered so obviously like this.
Okay, here’s another example. I mean… this artist doesn’t have the most realistic style to begin with but… hooooo.
And here, some language straight outta the mists of history… that you can probably still hear today if you look for it.
“They won’t do that, Wonder Woman. This whole show is for charity to begin with, and –“
“Then y’all can just kiss my star-studded ass. This woman don’t work her wonders for FREE.”
You know what, Etta, a TON of people would pay good money to be behind Diana like this. Shut up and enjoy it.
“I enjoy watching you sleep, Steve!”
“What’s that, now?”
“I said nothing.”
More Wonder Woman to come next Monday, because Friday will see episode 3 of Marvel Retold! Be there or lose hair! Or something.
