In an effort to be as cloyingly politically correct as humanly fucking possible, Marvel announced that the Hulk is no longer the alter image of Dr. Bruce Banner, but is now the beast within of Amadeus Cho, a super cool Korean-American teen. They're changing the series name to The Totally Awesome Hulk to conform to cool lingo of twenty plus years ago and to give a nod to the fact that this one isn't for the smart people. Watch the excitement as Amadeus turns into the Totally Awesome Hulk to avoid his cram school after school classes. His name is Amadeus, so you know he's going to be up to super hi-jinx. Guy's named Bruce are super square, man.
Last year Marvel introduced Ms. Marvel as a Muslim-Americans who battles bad guys and Islamophobia and announced that Thor was now a chick. The obsession with mutating white male comic characters into a roulette wheel of demographics seems like a particularly poor way to engender diversity. Someday somebody's going to laugh at how early 21st century gaijin used comic book character quotas to dispel myths about superficial bigotry. Not today. Puny humans. Korean Hulk smash StarCraft.
