When has a "snowflake" or a "safespace" done any good, either from themselves or for anyone else?

I guess it's just a matter of time before they come up with "Transgen"and "Antifa" and expect people to get excited over those, too.

Marvel Announces “Snowflake” and “Safespace” SUPERHEROES
March 23, 2020

Marvel Comics, the legendary comic book brand responsible for Spider Man and Iron Man, has done the seemingly impossible and turned far-left talking points into…superheroes.

The comic book company announced a new line up of characters for the “New Warriors” comic book franchise, whose names are “Snowflake” and “Safespace.” The term “snowflake” is a derogatory term for far-left activists who think they are special when, in reality, they are hipster conformists. The phrase “safe space” is used by snowflakes to refer to an area where they cannot be criticized or offended.

Who on earth thought these would make good comic book characters?

The launch was announced on the Marvel website, including a lineup of many other characters in the New Warriors universe. This isn’t a new story, either. New Warriors has been around since the 90s and has typically focused on young characters. You won’t see the usual Marvel superheroes in these books, but they’re no less significant than the major characters you might see on TV.

The move was an explicit attempt from Marvel to mock conservatives and even liberals who criticize social justice warriors, but it hasn’t gone so well. Twitter’s response has been overwhelmingly bad!

They rant about a witch hunt on twitter and that no other superhero has endured this much hardship.

The positive is that they're finally coming up with their own heroes instead of hijacking and ret-conning existing ones. They turned Thor into a girl and the fans hated it. They turned Spiderman into a half-black half-Hispanic teenager, and the fans weren't crazy about it. They turned Iron Man into a black teenage girl and the fans hated it. They turned the Hulk into an Asian guy and the fans hated it. They turned Captain America into a Nazi and the fans were absolutely pissed off. They turned Nick Fury from white to black. They've tried changing races on many other tried and true heroes. In almost all cases, the fans hated it.

Disenfranchised comic book fans like myself have long been saying, "Make your own damn character and stop ruining existing ones." To their credit, they listened. This does actually represent the SJW Neo-Marxist cultists actually coming up with new characters as their ideological standard bearers. I just doubt anyone is going to buy the comics.

You did forget the rest of the new characters. Screen-time has the innate power of Google searching in his head. Traveler is grotesquely obese, I think Hispanic, and has no powers to speak of, but she does have a magic backpack. So wouldn't that make her a really fat version of Dora the Explorer?
