This is incredibly well-said. I am amazed that this person was able to sum this up so articulately in only five minutes. If you have five minutes to spare, I can’t recommend this video enough - especially if you’ve been infuriated by (or participated in) the controversy surrounding Miles Morales.
"This is what happens when you let someone who isn’t a fan of comics write a book based off a secondary female character just so that little girls out there will have a fictional role model. Lame.

Stupid Bitch."
