This article analyzes gender and race issues as they appear in the comic book series Amazing Fantasy and Araña, especially pertaining to issues of representation. The author finds that although small steps toward a more varied representation of minority groups are present in this comic book series, the characters are still depicted in gender and race stereotypical ways. The author does, however, find that unlike most minority groups’ portrayals and most heroines’ portrayals, ethnic identity is expressed in many ways but still does not overcome the larger issues of racial stereotyping present in the comic book series.
