But it doesn't work anymore. Which is really weird.

It's still working for videos prior to that too.
So if it was posted prior to the update, it's fine but now it's against the rules?

I'm feeling this. Many of the classic New Mutants stories had the kids in what were basically horror movie scenarios. Pity about Roberto being a white Brazilian, though.
Was he not? It's been many many moons since I read it.

Nah, Afro-Brazilian. His powers first activate when he gets taunted with racist insults.

There is a running complaint that comic arists have made him lighter- and lighter-skinned over the years. I suspect part of that is just that they get art notes saying the guy's "Brazilian".

(Also, seeing a discussion with Brazilians in it elsewhere is weirdly amusing n a fun-of-clashing-social-constructs way. Some American says, Yeah, he's not black, but he's not white, he's Latino, at least and the Brazilians are like, Bro, we don't call it Latino...and guys like that (and me) are white...)
