Probably through the same process that turns Superman into a murderer and Batman into a mass murderer.

If that were the case, more movies would be about the white man going out and conquering and less about the white man being attacked by non white men and needing to defend themselves.


Not quite. The bog standard white supremacy narrative is that whites are under attack by non-whites, and their violence against those people is self-defense.

There are many reason to complain about Justice League. I don't think racism against minorities is one of them.

Eh, sure. It was more noticeable that the female characters did virtually fuck all, than that the minority characters did.

We have an epic saga of war and family reduced to one asshole with an axe looking for some computers. New Genesis doesn't even get a mention. Plus they continue using the darker aesthetics from Man of Steel, instead of using Jack Kirby's designs, which is extremely disappointing.

Personally, I hate the Kirby New Gods designs. But watching the battle with Steppenwolf in Justice League, I did suddenly realize that it was like I was watching a God of War fight. And not a good God of War fight.

Yeah... very shortly into Justice League, I remembered all the shit Batman was doing in BvS:DoJ:WtF:CiA:VtM:MtA:MtG:MtR:HtR:DtF, and... how the fuck are people going to say to the guy who was going around branding common criminals and say "yeah, you seem like a totally reasonable person, I will fight beside you"

Presumably because he's a billionaire who's already invested in his own infrastructure and would be helpful to their cause.

That, or this wasn't really taken into consideration, and the branding thing was part of making everything all dark and edgy and giving Superman and Batman more reason to hate each other, and then it was promptly forgotten.

I've never seen his green outfit before, the toy I had looked like this: http://www.dcuc.info/wave_11/steppenwolf-super-powers-version/

I think he looks more like a demon from Buffy or Angel than anything else.

Haven't seen it, but from the way Movie Bob describes it, Justice League tries to pretend Man of Steel and Batman v Superman didn't quite happen the way they did and were a lot less edgy grimdark.

That's the one I recognize, probably from some animated thing or other. Vaguely genghis khan looking stereotype mother fucker that effectively acts as a herald/harbinger to prove how badass the boss is.
