PLEASE LET IT BE THE BEGINNING OF THAT SPIDER-WOMAN
—Spidey Super Stories #11 (1975) script by Jean Thomas, art by Win Mortimer & Mike Esposito
A woman of color plays a lead character. There’s a trans character who’s treated respectfully. The white British dude is the immigrant with an accent, not the Asian woman. The cast is diverse. The story is interesting and fun. Moriarty is a powerful, complex female character with diverse motivations. Lucy fucking Liu is in it. There’s kick-ass mystery solving shit going on. There’s a pet turtle. Elementary is a gift to us all.
