DC Shocker: Bronze Tiger Now Actual Tiger

DC Shocker: Bronze Tiger Now Actual Tiger

The African-American superhero is now a cat.

DC released yet another installment of Screw You Guys, We Have Our Own Blog What's New in the New 52, this time showing off the new redesign for Bronze Tiger, a longtime member of the Suicide Squad and world class martial artist superhero.  Of course, since it's DC, they managed a way to fuck things up again, this time by turning the African-American superhero into an actual anthropomorphized tiger.

I can only imagine the conversation that went on here. 

Bob Harras: Boss, we need to find a way to make Bronze Tiger more EXTREME!!!  Right now, he's just a kickass black guy, and God knows that doesn't sell comics.

Dan Didio: So are we going to kill him off and replace him with a badass white guy?

Bob Harras: Do you remember nothing from the John Stewart scandal?  The Internet will be pissed if we kill off yet another minority character?

Dan Didio: You're right, we need to come up with a way to sate the Internet on this.  What's the one thing the Internet loves more than bringing up our continued incompetency and gender and race politics?

Bob Harras: ... Pouches?

Dan Didio: No, you fool.  Cats!  The internet loves cats!

Bob Harras: I'll get our design team on it immediately.  [Takes off shoe and puts it to his ear.] Guys, I need a mockup of a cat with sword and leg armor stat!

Dan Didio: You didn't actually call anyone, Bob. That's just your shoe. 

Since James Tynion IV is going to be writing Bronze Tiger in Red Hood and the Outlaws, I remain hopeful that they just gave the kickass black guy tiger powers instead of doing away with yet another minority character.  But then again, this is DC we're talking about, so they probably just didn't care.
