- only scarred enough to be manly but not enough to be ‘deformed’
- a really ableist parody of schizophrenia or

Step one: Don’t.
People who are saying they’re going to boycott Agent Carter because of the prevalence of white dudes in casting need to sit down and really think about what the fuck that will accomplish.
Mainly, getting a female-lead show canned.
How about instead of that you get in touch with Marvel through any and all available media outlets and express your interest (politely) in seeing more diversity in the cast?
Or you know, you could boycott any of the half-dozen white-male-lead films coming out and make sure you express that it’s because of the lack of diversity there.
Being frustrated is fine, understandable, and can be important - so long as that frustration is channeled in a productive way. You can support this show while making your voice and preferences heard. It’s closer to a step in the right direction than Ant-Man or Iron Man 934234 or Captain America: The Ladies Don’t Speak To Each Other (also they’re all white) or Thor: The Female Plot Device.
Be realistic, be active, and be supportive. Show Marvel what you love.
So this piece was birthed from the same twitter prompt that Doc Shaner used for his piece, and i wanted to follow suit. If i got to create a 7-person all-female Justice League team, this would be it. I like to think of them as a “blitz” team. hit them hard, hit them fast. no muss, no fuss. that top row coincidently are my favourite dc characters as well. This would also be my dream book if I ever worked for DC. the Zatanna design of course is taken from Jamal’s perfect (in my opinion) design for her.
