I really thought this was a parody at first, but it’s actually true – Marvel has introduced two woke new superheroes named Snowflake and Safespace as part of their planned ‘New Warriors’ comic series.

Not only that, but one of them (Snowflake) is a non-binary character who vanquishes enemies with “snowflake-shaped projectiles.”
See for yourself:
The first non-binary superhero in Marvel and they named them SNOWFLAKE.

Sounds like they’re trying to be really woke and progressive but it’s ended up looking like they’re just taking the piss? I know he makes out they’re trying to empower the words ‘snowflake’ and ‘safespace’ but it genuinely sounds like what you’d come up with if you wanted to offend those sorts of people, who are presumably the target audience.
Another reason why I’m sure Marvel are taking the mick is that these non-binary twins are dressed in blue and pink – which you would think is the least non-binary thing ever:
I just can’t believe this isn’t a parody but then I guess we are in 2020 and anything goes. I mean if they really wanted to get with the times, why didn’t they come up with Coronavirus Killer or Vaccine Girl or something? Not these two fannies. You know what I would love to see though? Safespace Vs The Hulk. Make it happen, Marvel.
