Disabled Geeks: Improve Representation of Disability in Wikis

Calling all geeky crips! Do you have a favorite comic book character with a disability?

Do you find wiki posts about disabled comic book characters ableist, inaccurate, or devoid of a disability perspective?

If so, we’re looking for you!

Dominick Evans and I — through the Disability Visibility Project — are looking for volunteers to update various entries in comic book wikis.

How to participate:

1. Select a wiki that has an entry of a comic book character with a disability. Here are a few:

Marvel Comics Wiki

Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki

Marvel Universe Wiki

DC Comics Wiki

DC Movies Wiki

2. Update an entry of your favorite character, adding your perspective and interpretation as a disabled person.

3. Let us know by tweeting us the link of the updated wiki entry: @dominickevans @DisVisibility with the hashtag #FilmDis or email Dominick:
