From Let's Be Friends Again

I frequently praise Let's Be Friends Again for their spot on comic book comics. Whether it's something just for laughs or with a real political message, they always get it right.

This week is no different. With the announcement of Miles Morales, a half-Black, half-Latino, Ultimate Spider-Man, the media outlets and the internet have gone wild with praise and/or skepticism and/or racism. But in only 3 panels and 6 word balloons they have captured the true significance of this event or rather super heroes in general.

At their heart, we--whether white, black, yellow, brown, or any other crayon color--love super heroes because they represent the good that we should be striving for each day. To protect and respect our fellow man and do the right thing as frequently as possible. Spider-Man--along with every hero in comics--were created to tap into the good in all of us. Let's remember that and enjoy our funny books.
