Spirit - Sigma 6 Tracker

Spirit is one of my favorite Joe characters so I was glad to see him included in the Sigma 6 reboot, but like his ARAH version, he's a little...problematic.

For some reason, it's hard to include a Native American character without them becoming a stereo-type. It seems to happen more with Native Americans than any other minority that they automatically get certain Indian traits: tracking, archery, mysticism, etc.

I'm not saying it's bad necessarily, but it's easy for the characters to become just caricatures of their culture.

Maybe it's even more obvious a problem since I was able to easily adapt the Warpath Heroclix to be Spirit.

Food for thought.
