Why the new Captain Marvel movie ISN’T breaking the glass ceiling

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

The new Captain Marvel isn’t breaking glass ceilings. The whole industry seems to be making a big stink about how Brie Larson is the next feminist to save womankind, but are we forgetting that the original and female Captain Marvel…was black? And that was back in the 1970s!

This idea that Brie Larson is breaking some kind of glass ceiling is clearly nonsense.

is there no edit on comments or am i blind? in my last one, “movie” should be “name”.

there are two captain marvel ladies in marvel. they are different characters with the same movie. the black lady was in the west coast avengers (i think), and the blond bombshell one had her powers robbed from her by rogue (an xmen villain). i’m just going from memory here, but the blond came first according to my recollection.

Marvel tackled many social issues in their time. Same with the original Star Trek.

Progressives as usual think history started when they were born, except for the cherry picked portions of history like slavery they think modern people should be responsible for.
A bit of a paradox that they are oblivious to parts of history while they hold people who had not yet been born responsible for other parts of history.
