In this special episode we take a look at race and Spider-Man. Our friend Donovan Morgan Grant returns for this episode to join in the discussion with Brad and George. There are some several topics we discuss in this episode. Those include:
*Is it racist to want to keep Spider-Man the same race?
*Why Spider-Man? Why not change the race of Superman or Batman?
*Why does changing the race of the Kingpin or Heimdall seem ok, but not Spidey?
*People freaked out about changing the Human Torch’s race. Why?
*Can you change the race of Luke Cage or Black Panther? Why not?
*Why have Miles in the same universe as Spidey?
*Stan Lee says he doesn’t want to change Spidey’s race, who are we to argue?
