In terms of race do comics offer stereotypes? Yes, comics do offer racial stereotypes.Creating a character that can not be used as a stereotype in some form or another is almost impossible. The early creators of comics drew characters as obvious racial stereotypes. African Americans and Indians were illustrated in a very racist and stereotypical way. These characters were later redesigned to look less stereotypical. The new authors were trying to depict the characters as being equal to all other characters, but they found it difficult to not offend anyone. So even when the authors were being mindful to not make them fulfill stereotypes they did anyway. It is hard to satisfy all readers, and to characterize someone to make them 100% original.
