all-black lineup avengers marvel

In an interview with Racialicious, Marvel Comics representative Tom Brevoort rejected the idea of an all-Black lineup for an Avengers series, saying it wouldn’t make sense.

The Root reports:

“I think there’s something very specific about what ‘Avengers’ means to the Marvel Universe,” said Brevoort. They’re the varsity. They’re the A-list. They’re the man. They’re not about being superheroes because of demographics or ethnicity. They stand for something specific and occupy a certain role. If you don’t have some degree of that, then it doesn’t feel like Avengers.”

Brevoort took to Twitter to try and clarify the sketchy statements, which seemed to imply that a Black superhero could never be “the man.”

@SonofBaldwin It’s the product of 70 years of publishing, much of which was done in less enlightened times.
