I get the impression that the racist connotations of the Bloody Lips character have just gone straight over W. Haden Blackman’s head. He talks about this guy as a spiritual successor to Kraven the Hunter — a character who absorbs skills, powers and memories by eating them, and who pursues assassins like Cape Crow and Elektra as the ultimate delicacy. Which is a perfectly valid concept.

Except that when you give that role to an Aboriginal man who wears a “tribal” costume, lives in the wilderness and claims to serve a mythical serpent, you’re playing directly into a racist stereotype of Aboriginal Australians as uncivilised savages and cannibals — a stereotype that has been used to justify persecution, child abduction, wholesale slaughter and genocide.

That’s why the character bothers me so much.
