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 Cinematic Universe 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t know what a wiki is? Check out this link.
