I want to ask you what were your thoughts on Thor handing the hammer down to a woman and the Falcon becoming the new Captain America?

It will all depend on how it's done. I'm a big fan of passing torches and taking up legacies in heroic fiction, so if it's handled that way, it can be cool. If the Thor thing is another Beta-Ray Bill, that could be fun for awhile. I especially liked the Falcon in the second Cap movie, but I've always liked the mainstream Marvel U Falcon, too. Not so much the Ultimates version. Sam Wilson, as he's usually been written, would be a good Cap. 

That being said, I worry that these things are done to create publicity and stir up controversy. For me, that's weak tea. Tell a good story with good characters.

I do agree that if it's all for publicity and controversy and nothing else, then things can go wrong and you're right that good stories and good characters can go a long way in the industry. but what's so sad is that the best, iconic characters are the only ones that can always sell the most no matter what, it's either them or bust.

Well, it's always possible that someone has figured out a really cool, interesting story involving a transgendered norse thundergod, but my experience tells me, that's not the way to bet. When you hear hoofbeats, think "horses", not "zebras". When Marvel and/or DC give one of their established characters a race/sex/sexual orientation change, I think "marketing gimmick", rather than "innovative way to revitalize the character!" That way, I'm never disappointed.

Thanks. Two days later, I wrecked my car, so being 51 is not starting out well. Thankfully, no one was injured, but my car is a total loss. I miss her.
