What does everyone think of the political correctness / agenda that's in most new comic adaptations?
Sparked by another post of mine, I decided to throw this question out here. Political views aside, what are your thoughts on the recent trend to infuse political agendas into the rebooted adaptations of our favorite superheroes. Do people read comics for the purposes of entertainment or social to be socially informed via the writer's political views? I'm really interested to know what everyone thinks!
Good stories are timeless, which means they would pertain to the social climate in any era they exist in. It's not necessarily an agenda, it's just one representation of what it means to be human.
I think that comics have always adhered to the issues of the day. From the second World War to the drug problems heightened in the 70s and 80s, comics have always adapted to suit the zeitgeist. As for making Thor a woman, I don't see it as political correctness so much as I see it being a new take on an old character. We had Beta Ray Bill... now we have Thor as a woman. I look forward to reading it

PC. Is it good, bad or somewhere in between? How far can PC go before it becomes ridiculous? When does it become offensive and unworkable? Examples are encouraged.Have we lost touch with (what once was called) common sense?

Juan Williams who forks for NPR as a political analyst was fired for expressing a fear on the Bill O'Reilly show. "Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who...

We are not equal, life is not fair, there are winners and losers - Deal with it.Forums of polite discussions. Threads of polemic rhetoric. Well, we can still be polite, but it is time to not be afraid to call a spade a spade. Or would you feel less offended if I did the... "a rose by any other...
