Can we get an ORIGINAL Latino or Asian Champion?

We have plenty of African American champions including multiple versions of Black Panther...... Where is the Asian or Hispanic champion with his or her own orgin story? In a generation of inclusion and cultural representation.....the Hispanic and Asian communities have been ignored for too long. And no....I don't count Massacre (Deadpool Ripoff) or Miles Morales (half Puerto Rican and Black alternate Spiderman)! A black female Iron Man......do we really need another Iron Man? You made Gulliotine why can't we get a Hispanic or Asian hero...just sayin.....

    I agree with OP, there is a definitely lack of Asian characters, especially males. I don't think there are any Asian male characters in game. I mean they recently added Sorcerer Supreme as an Indian Female, but where the Asian male characters at? I mentioned Amadeus Cho Hulk as a possibility in another post.

    I mean Russia is part of both Europe and Asia so you could say Red Guardian is one by technicality
    David Harbour is Caucasian AF!

    no, Red Guardian not the actor that plays him

    The definition of asian as per google is: "a native of Asia or a person of Asian descent"

    Russia covers Europe and Russia so depending on where he hails from or if the entire country is considered both, he falls into this category

    Russians doesn't called themselves Asians, most those Russians are usually referred to as EASTERN EUROPEANS! Where are all the characters of Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesian heritage? SILVER SAMURAI, make it happen, Kabam!

    I'm talking about Russia as a country, it's in both europe and asia, that means they're as much asian as they are european whether they like it or not.

    EurAsian isn't straight up Asian! Just like another poster saying Sunspot (Brazilian/Portuguese heritage) is Latino when the definition of it is “The terms ‘Hispanic’ or ‘Latino’ refer to persons who trace their origin or descent to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spanish speaking Central and South America countries, and other Spanish cultures."

    I never said he was straight up asian, I said he would technically count as one for reasons above.

    And actually, Sunspot is Latino because the term Latino/Latina refers to those of Latin American descent or heritage, considering Brazil is part of Latin America geographically and organisationally.

    First off Sunspot is Latino because Brazil is a part of Latin America.

    Second, I didn't say anything about EurAsian counting as straight up Asian but enough for it to count as either of the two, by the same logic he isn't straight up European.

    Sunspot doesn't meet the criteria of the OP's request for a HISPANIC character then, since Portugal is not Spain and is Portuguese speaking. Who cares if Red Guardian isn't straight up European, the main thing is having a straight up Asian Champ (male lacking) in the game.

    Man there's a real lack of Disabled characters in the game. We only have one, and that's Aegon who's missing an arm. Where's the diabetic representation, I need to see a champ inject some insulin during their SP3.


    If you read that and think that's stupid, then you'll agree that forcing diversity and inclusion is also stupid. Characters will be added when they're added, nor because specific users feel under represented in a mobile game. If you feel under represented in any capacity while playing the game, just know there is a whole world of Internet out there that can satiate your particular needs.

    If you want to get technical, Red Guardian was born in MOSCOW, MOSCOW IS IN THE EUROPEAN part of Russia. So he DOESN"T COUNT. Are you one of those who are in denial of the fact that people in North American countries only sees Black and White and generally IGNORE Yellow and Brown?

    A majority of the popular characters were created DECADES ago. Marvel specifically is famous for tying in stories to reality; such as Captain America in WW2, or Civil Rights Era X-Men.

    Now, Latino immigration (outside Bracero Program) was consistently minimal. Then, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (1986), Immigration Act (1990), and Immigrant Responsibility Act (1996) were signed. And, as expected, immigration shot through the roof. In fact, if we look at this graph, the 3 acts line up perfectly with the exponential, meteoric rise of Mexican immigration (couldn't find a detailed graph that takes all Latinos into account. Idk why, just Google being Google).

    Why am I mentioning this? Because at the very same year that the Immigrant Responsibility Act was introduced, Marvel files for bankruptcy. Since the massive influx of Latino immigrants was so sudden, I don't believe they had time to "react". So as the demographics were shifting, Marvel was too busy imploding. I mean, for all we know, there was a Latino hero who could've done great, but Marvel was so broke that they couldn't afford to continue it. I believe they could and would have had they not been disintegrating.

    As to why they didn't make more Latino heroes before? I mean, it's probably because the authors were American and had not really thought of it, as there simply weren't a significant number of Latinos. Kinda like why we have a lack of Asian heroes.

    Although technically Psylocke is/was Asian. Then became British. This one is weird, since they change her ethnicity at seemingly random for no reason.
