Marvel NOW! Introduces New Minority Superhero

Marvel NOW! Introduces New Minority Superhero

A bizarre announcement (or one for a new Deadpool title).

Following up on its surprise announcements earlier this week, Marvel has released a new teaser that will focus on an upcoming food item found in Mexican restaraunts across the world: the chimichanga.  The chimichanga is a deep fried burrito with rice, beans, cheese and chicken and is often found in most Tex-Mex restaraunts.  Marvel released the teaser right after Yum! Restaraunts, the parent company of Taco Bell, announced that the popular fast food chain would begin serving chimichangas in fall 2012.  To our knowledge, this is the first comic focused entirely on food, giving Marvel an unheard of level of diversity in their portfolio of characters.

We're sure that Chimichanga: The Series will feature ample amounts of plot, characterization and drama involving everyone's favorite faux-Mexican dish, but we can't help but wonder why they didn't go with shwarma, the dish popularized in May's The Avengers.  Showing shwarma as a fiesty new character in the pantheon of Marvel's superheroes would probably make more sense than a chimichanga, which reeks of trying to force minority diversity into the Marvel Universe. 

Written by comedians Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, the book will be pencilled by Alan Moore, thus guaranteeing that it will sell millions of comics and ample amounts of fish rape scenes.  Marvel has reportedly already worked out a contract with Moore, which Moore promptly didn't read and then complained about how unfair it was.

If we're wrong about this (and we have every other day this week), our second guess is that this is a new Deadpool series, written by Posehn and Duggan, with art by Walking Dead creator Tony Moore.  If that's the case, we look forward to reading the comic on Reddit, since the users there love Deadpool more than they love cats, weed and making fun of religion.
