I've seen the drawing of the Thing as a rabbi. (in an issue of Kirby Collector, I think.) It's actually pretty damn funny. As I think Jack meant it to be. :-)

Of course, Marvel's had an "out" Jewish superhero since the late 70s! (Kitty Pryde, who was--and probably is--my favorite X-Man. Er, X-Person. You know what I mean.) ;-)

Vampires aren't impressed by Kitty Pryde's cross
Yeah, but she's not as iconic to Marvel as the Thing. It makes more of a statement if he's outed. Not a great statement, but a larger one. *shrugs*

Re: Vampires aren't impressed by Kitty Pryde's cross
...But Dracula sure as hell was impressed with Kitty's Star of David!

(sorry, had to get the obligatory "obscure X-Men issue reference" in there...)

I see what you mean, it's like the Northstar thing. (Another case of the original creator making the assumption and kind of planting clues, but never coming out and saying anything until another writer years down the line decided to be explicit...) Although, to be fair, after next May Kitty Pryde may be better known to today's kids than the ever lovin' blue eyed Thing...

...which is, of course, not necessarilly a good thing.

going off to read his "Essential Fantastic Four" books now...

That's why I used that reference. :)

Why next May? Next X-movie?

Yup. Apparently Kitty (played by a different actress than in the first film) becomes more of a major player as Shadowcat. (Yay! Does this old Kitty fan's heart proud....)

Kitty's always been one of my favorites, too. Soul of the team, time and again.

The other ambiguous Jew in Marvel Comics has been Magneto; has he been officially "outed" too? The writers have bounced back and forth between "gypsy" and "Jew" for years, and they've probably crossed up the hints pretty good by now.

I don't remember if in the X-Men movie his concentration camp costume had a Star of David. If it did, then he has been outed in the movies. Last I read X-Men, he was Jewish, but I can't say for certain if that has stayed the same.

    Hey, nice to see you! Sorry you're feeling cruddy. :-(

    I've migrated to Dreamwidth, FYI. Same user name.

    I am actually feeling MUCH better but have a lingering hacking cough which is more annoying than anything, except when I'm trying to sleep or hide it (i.e. in professional settings)

    I hope you feel better soon, too. I felt better first thing this morning. Then I must have been turned into Wile E. Coyote, because the Road Runner ran me over with a truck. Bleargh.

    Oh, I'm so sorry you have to be parted from your kitty.
