  I wonder if the backlash to this at the time was as big as it would be if it came out today.

  The most inexplicable thing about this storyline is that not just that it’s ludicrous and out of date — the ridiculous real-life skin-darkening version, Black Like Me, was 30 years earlier; Lois Lane did it 20 years earlier, as did Melvin Van Peebles in Watermelon Man (probably the least offensive of the bunch) and the terrible comedy Soul Man with C. Thomas Howell was 5 years earlier, as was Eddie Murphy’s reverse parody of the whole idea, White Like Me. So this idea had been thoroughly beaten to death and in 1991 was more in recent pop-culture memory than today. This might explain why Mike Baron hated the idea (he claims it was forced on him by Don Daley) and left the book not long after. But the thing I find most baffling is that unlike all the previous examples, there’s almost no attempt in this storyline to “say anything” about skin color or race. Cage and Punisher have one discussion about inner-city violence, and the police pick on Punisher... but that’s it? I guess it was just too much for Baron, but it means the offensive Dolezal-style idea was used without even getting anything out of it. Worse, or better that way?
