    Wow, this is such a let down. I really enjoyed the Micronauts, it’s a disappointment that Pat Broderick turns out to be yet another racist Marvel prick. Somehow Marvel thought this was ok, but you sure as hell don’t see any character named Cracker man or Woodpecker man.

    WOW!
    Commenters, Pharaoh King and Rockmon, are INCREDIBLY STUPID!
    Just because she happens to be of African Decent, you think this has ANYTHING to do with her turning into a Gorilla?!?! News Flash! Africans (nor anyone else for that matter) are Apes! The simple fact that you claim it does, makes YOU THE RACIST!. Sheesh! What’s next? You’re going to tell me the Black Panther is racist? After all, he is called the “BLACK” Panther and the character IS black! GROW THE FREAK UP, PEOPLE! Just because it involves a black person, it doesn’t automatically make it racist!

    And using “Cracker man or Woodpecker man” are incredibly childish and terrible examples. By the way. Using that “C” makes you a racist.

    ……The irony of those words….the lack of self-awareness…
