Spidey’s whole team is well-represented in this giant coloring and activity book, which is cool enough on its own, but what makes this book really great is that characters that basically never show up in Ultimate Spider-Man merch appear.  I found it at Walmart.

Spidey’s teammates and Fury are all well-represented in these coloring pads.  There are 6 in a pack.  I found them at Target.

So, I was pretty happy to see Spirit carrying adult Black Widow costumes, but even more importantly, they’re carrying Black Widow costumes for children.

I saw both kid-size and adult-size Falcon costumes at Spirit Halloween.  I like to picture Anthony Mackie seeing them and crying with happiness.

Just seen this at Target and was thinking how cool it is that a black kid has a Black superhero to look up to

I also remember how last year, when I saw Iron Patriot costumes for Iron Man 3, I would sometimes see white hands peeking out of the costumes.  Idk if this is because they hired a white model or if it’s because they reused an old image and shopped Iron Patriot’s costume onto an Iron Man picture, but either way, there were definitely white hands where there should have been black ones.

This time around, there are actual black people playing a black character, which not only means that kids will see the costumes and pictures and think, “This is for me!” but it means that they created more jobs for black models.
