Given the outcry surrounding the slimming of Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad #1, I’m surprised that I haven’t seen anyone really comment on the “new” Morgan Edge from this week’s Superman #1. He’s also become younger and sexier, but where’s the upset?
It makes me wonder where the line is for internet condemnation in this kind of thing: Is Morgan Edge too minor a character for people to care that much about? What about Perry White, who’s also slimmed down, to a lesser degree? Is it only problematic when it happens to female characters? Has the internet decided to recharge its outrage batteries in light of last week’s Catwoman and Red Hood?
