Has this ever happened before? I thought of this character that would be a comment on the phenomenon of black characters who have 'black' in their codenames. This villain would be completely disguised like Snake-Eyes and be a kick ass fighter. He rarely talks except for a some one-liners you'd hear in the movies. After a while some guys would be praising how cool he was for a black villain. Then one of the protagonists would reply,'What are you talking? He was never a black man. He's an android".
Do you prefer a hero who will confirm your deepest fears? Or a hero who will inspire faith in humanity and goodness?
