What race tropes does /co/ love and hate?
Starting with mandatory trend of Black guys getting electric powers.
I like it, Static and Black Lightning are fun characters and the aesthetic is pretty cool.
the japs are the only ones who get characters and their electric powers right
Race trope I hate
>all the black heroes know each other
Casting a different race from what has been established for at least 25+ years is racism. Period.
Race trope I love
>Latino characters that masterfully blend the Spanish and the English language together
>Mi gente...do not worry...
It's beautiful, Ami/co/s!
You want to know what's stupid ? The fact that it took until the late 90's to get any recognition for great characters like The Falcon, Cyborg
This one I kinda find offensive. Like what a white guy thinks is what happens. Black Panther has nothing in common with most of these people. To compare what he goes through and what Luke Cage goes through is fucking stupid.
Latinos/Mexicans tend to have light or fire powers. (Latin heat jokes all around).
Black people and electric powers.
Asians with mystic magic powers/kung fu, science serum, or Powersuits emulating someone's powerset like Iron Man, Spider-Man, etc. Also Asian people, especially girls having a neon-color bang or stripe in their hair.
Occasionally you'll see a few homosexual characters with mind control or sex pheromone powers. The problem with it is that the common trope is that they can act like Purple Man but get away with because they're homosexual, especially if they're lesbians.
Weirdly enough, Jewish people having reality warping powers that easily break the canon or story they're in. People like Scarlet Witch, Billy Kaplan, Mad Jim Jaspers, Legion, Kitty Pryde for a short time, etc. Sure most of them job or become Deus Ex Machina tools but it always bugged me that most of the OP reality hackers always had to bring up or be revealed to be Jewish.
Ray, Aztek. El Diablo, Firebrand. Jessica the GL, Firebrand, and I think Hotstreak from Static.
the Ghost Low Rider, Torro (human torch)
Kyle should only count for half.
Sunspot, Eclipso, and The Darkness doesn't count because they're effectively dark powered.
