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 Alice Wong of 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 w/ a disability. Here are a few:

Marvel Comics 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: geekycripswiki@gmail.com
