Hey, thank you so much for your reply.

I definitely think that people should watch whatever makes them happy.

To dive into something you have said about creating superheroes who do not have material resources in capitalism, I think it's possible. They would have to either have their power be the result of an injustice from an oppressor (e.g. think Luke Cage being experimented on by the military), stealing those resources from an oppressor (e.g. Karli if she wasn't coded as a villain), or have that power come from some non-white supremacist source (e.g. the totem in DC's Legends of Tomorrow).

It's narratively possible. "Is it palatable to a conservative entity like Disney?", however, is a completely separate question.
