I don't want to sound like a racist or a debbie downer, but this book is everything i hate about modern G.I.Joe and what i fear from future projects and movies from Hasbro. Your comment about 'brown Flint' was spot in. It is another pathetic attempt to 'modernize' things by making characters a certain race to make the reader feel like they are being inclusive. FYI to the writers of this book, G.I.Joe already has plenty of diversity, pick an existing character from a different culture and do a good story on them, don't create 'brown flint' aka 'Frontier'.

Here are some ideas, how about explore 'Airborne' he is Native American, or Spirit, or mabee Quick Kick, he is a Japanese American Immigrant, hmm, i don't know mabee you could right about Hispanic Shipwreck aka Hector Delgado who grew up in the shipyards of california. It is like a lot of the hacks that IDW hires have never seen or read anything about G.I.Joe at all.

Okay rant over......lol

I don't know anything about the new book other than some varying viewpoints on liking it or hating it. But I would say G.I. Joe was already one of the most progressively diverse books back in the 1980's. Strong male and female characters and specialists of various ethnic heritage backgrounds came together with a common purpose of defeating evil. This is not a zero-sum game where success by members of a certain group diminish the importance of another group.

Attempts to create an alternate or updated timeline, should have a heavy caveat up front. Like Marvel did with the "What if" series. "What if the Punisher Killed Spider-Man?" Then explore a tangential timeline of how events turn out differently because of a hypothetical key occurrence. Once people realize something is a one-off hypothesis, they can give it a thumbs up or thumbs down based on the quality of the story.

And of course at the end of the day, you can go back and say "Well that was just a What-If, good thing that didn't happen for real..." Whew! good thing Spidey is still alive, etc. Or even "That was entertaining, but not part of the main story-line."

For the record...I don't need to know people's bedroom choices to work with them to accomplish a common goal, whether in the real life at work or in the world of fiction. People's choices or proclivities are non-essential to a story about fighting terrorism. So the inclusion of that background info only serves to force a specific world-view agenda onto a reader. Why steer into the oncoming lane to offend a large portion of potential readers?

Catering to the LGBTQ extremely loud minority seems more important than worrying about offending the significantly larger majority potential readership.

From a Twitter perspective, a publisher might garner a few kudos for adherence to the politically correct line. If even that.
From a book sales perspective, a publisher might want to consider their audience.
Does the LGBTQ market share in cash G.I.Joe sales exceed 50% of overall book sales?
How about 25%?
How about 10%?
How about 1%?
How about .01%?

Once again, it is not good to steer out of your way to offend anyone of any background.
But if a publisher fails to ask: "How will the inclusion of this event or background affect sales?" That is a poor business strategy...
