Representation matters

My only complaint. No Kate Kane.

Indeed, Kate Kane should totally be here on this photo set of fabulous POC and LGBTQI comics heroes :D

Also maybe Jaime Reyes?

And Kamala Khan, too.

AND COAGULA :D

Because more awesome queer trans ladies are needed

Gorgeous.

Would someone comics-literate please name the pictured characters, one row at a time, preferably with links? A few of the frames have enough dialogue to identify with a search (Ystina was easy enough, and Tremor was only a bit more difficult), but many have no dialogue as pictured.

Thanks!

Jamie: [spoken] Maureen! Melody! I didn’t think you guys were coming!
Maureen: [spoken] Well, I wasn’t planning to, but Melody dragged me out.
Hazel: [spoken] I don’t get it. Why would a deaf person want to go clubbing?

Jamie: [spoken] Neat!
PANEL 3:
Melody: [signed] Let me guess: this song is about a girl he wants to **** and ****.
Maureen: [signed] It’s actually worse!
Thea: [spoken, cupping her hand to her ear] I WISH I’D THOUGHT TO BRING EARPLUGS. [Most of this text is covered by large letters DNND representing the loud music.]
Mimi: [spoken, cupping her hand to her ear] WHAT?
PANEL 4:

PANEL 6:
[outside the club]
Thea: [spoken] Ugh. My head is pounding.
Mimi: [spoken] Mine, too.
Jamie: [spoken] I hope nobody expects me to talk tomorrow.
Hazel: [shouted] WHAAT?
Melody: [signed] I don’t get it. Why would a hearing person want to go clubbing?

Captain America: Communist

When you think about it, we really don’t know much about Steve Rogers before he became Captain America. We know he walked into a recruiting office eager to do something–anything–to help fight the Nazis. We also know that his parents were dead by then (one of the reasons he was accepted as a volunteer was that he had no family.) But beyond that, it feels almost like he wasn’t a real person until the day they gave him the Super-Soldier Serum.

But I think he must have been a very interesting person indeed. Because Steve Rogers has always been socially progressive–his attitude towards Sam Wilson might seem patronizing to modern audiences, but for someone born in 1917, Steve Rogers is pretty damned enlightened. He seems to have been working-class; there’s no real mention of an inheritance anywhere in his background, and he’s had to take jobs to make ends meet on several occasions. And he’s very strongly anti-Fascist; it’s telling that he signed up to fight against Hitler a year before the United States’ entry into the war…and was passionate enough about it that he wouldn’t take 4F for an answer.

All those things add up to a very interesting, potentially shocking, probably fascinating backstory that’s never been touched on. Namely, that Steve Rogers probably grew up in a Communist household….
