Did anyone else find Spider-Verse....a bit problematic?

>Growing up, I did not see myself in popular culture. Cyclops, Wolverine, Captain America, Luke Skywalker, Spider-Man — these were my cultural heroes, the characters I wanted desperately to be. The truth is, I could never inhabit their lives. I knew it then, and, as a scholar of race, I know it now. My heroes were in bodies that were different from mine — they were white, I was black — and that ontological chasm was too much to cross.

>Maybe I could be their friend. Or I could support them in their adventures. I could be the sidekick, the comic relief, the beta character, but I would never be the hero. That’s why I was excited for this film.
