Dude, I just now found out that Jubilee was Asian. That's so awesome! It's great to see more people of color in comics.

i like the somewhat allussion to a revolutionary aspect of the storyline.. it sux that both leaders are white men.. same with the matrix...

yeah, x-men is probably more political than many other super-hero comics. "Mutants" are a pretty thinly veiled stand in for several different oppressed social identities. Sometimes, Black, sometimes Jewish, sometimes queer. etc.

And I'm not sure about this 3rd movie, but in previous ones Professor Xavier was "MLK" wanting to live in harmony with non-mutants and Magneto was more "Malcolm X" and even says he'll achieve his goals "by any means necessary"

I luv my sistahs who make me think of the women who paved the way for us. Are u familiar with the Amazon Women? They ran their land without male dominance and lived in peace for 1,500 yrs. Wow! The power of a woman.

Check these warriors out http://www.bigredmediainc.com/warriorsisters.htm Which 1 r u?

I'm Assat Shakur, Legendary Leader of the Black Liberation Army.

Really Smart Talk turned me on to this. It would never come to Cincinnati Ohio, that's why I'm trying to make my way out to Los Angeles or some part of Cali.

I luv your hair I wear mine's like that except it's cold blk.

wow cool.. and def original.. i think i'd have to create my own charcter i don't know what it would encompass completely, but i'd like one of my powers to be the ability to unlock (open doors, gates, break chains, ect..) at will.. why? because i think our brothers and sisters incarcerated will play a part in the revolutionary movement and it would be cool to have someone who could just BOOM open up high security prisons with just a thought!.. i'd prob be a part of playing a role to break you out ;)
