I just saw a corrected version of the cover for the Pulse #11... It's on Marvel's website here: The Pulse #11 (http://www.marvel.com/wallpaper/fetchimage.htm?id=276&size=med)

Apparently there were some fans who felt the need to point out that Luke Cage and Jessica Jones' baby wouldn't be as white as was depicted originally and Joe Q has come and said that it was a coloring mistake.

Coloring mistake my ass. I doubt it ever would have been corrected if there hadn't been a mini-uproar.

Well, we got what we wanted thanks to the bitching.
And that Wolverine is still creepy.

i think it's a silly thing for there to have been an uproar about.

What if they had just made Cage white instead?

That sounds like a "Wha.....Huh?" skit that didn't make the final cut.

Uproar my arse. People pointed it out, Marvel modified a cover with an error. Which part of this is somehow wrong?

Marvel must send you a sack full of doubloons or goats or whatever it is you people use as currency over there to be their unofficial internet PR rep.

It isn't anything to do with Marvel, it's to do with people saying there was an uproar.

You know I just like to gove you shit for towing the company line even when you don't work there. ;)

I don't actually know if there was an uprorar or not since I only come here on a regular basis. Marvel could have well gotten some pissed off emails, I don't know.

I just think its fucking hilarious that people still fucking think if you have a dark skinned parent and a light skinned parent you just have to fucking have a baby with medium colored skin. Dumb assholes.

I think the kid should have stripes like swirl Ice Cream.

To be fair? The kid could be totally lilly white. It is a genetic crap shoot.

I didn't think there was such a coloring error, many mixed race newborns have lower melanin content than they have normaly, later in life

The baby could be any color between Jessica and Luke. I have some swatches if you'd like to see.

Baby still looks white.

The Human Target
07-01-2005, 03:09 PM
The only bitching I would accept is that, while the baby could look white, there is no reason it has to. And I agree with that. But still.

God, I fucking wish it was Scott Lang's baby. That'd be some good stuff.

How groundbreaking is this? Has there ever been an interracial baby in a mainstream super hero comic? On the cover? This is history in the making people. Its right up there with that Extreme Justice cover with Amazing Man kissing Maxima!

Captain America has blue eyes!

Hmmmm and inviting Luke Cage who has never really been an A list heroe to the NA!?

Possibly wanting to keep an eye on his child so keeping Cage and family close by..hmmmmm!

No it doesn't. I think the cover is supposed to be comical, isn't it? It is modeled after an old JLA cover...

I think that cover sucks. Look at Caps left eye, its messed up. He has no pupil.

I wasn't other Ben. I meant his left eye, from his point of view, not the closed one.

Go read an indy book and leave this for the over 18 crowd. :)

Wait...what?
Is that Captain America wiping a fricking tear from his eye?
Baby's eyes are blue, doesn't mean anything though, but anyone recall what color Scott Lang's eyes were just because?

Bill?
07-02-2005, 12:46 AM
that looks much better.
say what you will, but the baby looked really white before. now it looks more like a child of mixed parentage.
kids got a black dad, for crying out loud and i know luke cage aint got no weak motherfucking genes.

TheKraken
07-02-2005, 12:51 AM
Ah, good, they sorted this out. Now there's just the question of why Spider-Man's head is shaped like a bare skull instead of a healthy human head, or why Captain America's whole face seems to be curving to the left as it slopes down, or...

... well, and so on...

Who care's about cover issues when we have Michael Gaydos back drawing Jessica Jones? Don't get me wrong, I love Mayhew's work, but I REALLY love Gaydos' art a hell of a lot. Anyway, I'm just happy to see Gaydos' name on "The Pulse." Best solicit too on that. Couldn't be more true.
Bravo Bendis for getting him back. I couldn't be more excited for September now. :)

Hold on.

Cap has blue eyes.
Baby has blue eyes....so...did they?


Ok, look I know most babies born have blue eyes.
and and and I don't think I'd entirely rule out Bendis taking some twists and turns with Scott Lang. Might not pane out, though. But I remember everyone knew about Wanda and that was funny because it was like a mystery or something. I waited for the trade and it spoiled. hmph.

There's no way no weak ass Ant Man II sperm is going to beat Luke "Power-Man" Cages boys to the egg.

The issue is about the birth of the kid, right? So the kid should be red. I'm serious, I'll show you pictures of Jakita when she was born and she was insanely red colored.

Nick MB

Um, maybe the colourist just saw a white woman holding her baby and doesn't actually read the Pulse. Shit happens. It's not as if Cage on that cover has a big sign saying "Proud Daddy".

most of that is worked out beforehand. they get a color guide or something. that would be how the colorist knows what color to make the uniforms and things like that. mistakes still happen of course. but thats what a editor is for. least they caught it in time. more or less.
