‘New Mutants’ Comics Co-Creator Complains Movie Whitewashes Character, Misspells His Name
“The New Mutants” comics co-creator Bob McLeod made a Facebook post on Friday and complained how the movie apparently whitewashed one of his characters and misspelled his name.“I was very excited when I heard they were making a ‘New Mutants’ movie,” said McLeod.
