She-Hulk Vol 1 # 40 - Artist John Byrne
Confused about the “fans” who are upset that Marvel is trying to push a “politically correct” agenda by having Sam Wilson (The Falcon) take over from Steve Rogers as Captain America. (Captain America is the guy who believes in freedom and fairness and all that.) As Axel Alonso has stated, there are story reasons behind this: “This isn’t about just finding an African-American guy and putting him in the red, white and blue tights. It’s about Sam Wilson. He also says that having a African American dressed in red, white and blue is a "powerful and potent symbol."
It is. It’s a terrific move by Marvel that promotes diversity. Is diversity a bad thing?
And to the people who say “No, Falcon should just be given his own book if Marvel want to promote diversity” you realise that IS promoting diversity by having a prominent African-American superhero be heavily marketed in his own solo.

It’s a heartbreaking story told in just six pictures.
After a fire destroyed nine houses on one block of Garland Street in Detroit, the Detroit News looked back to tell the block’s story. While their reporting went back nearly a century, the images only need to go back seven years to make an impact.
