Well, sure, I’m not going to care that much because for all of my really active comic fandom, all the characters I read were mostly white guys until the X-men came along and even then, they were all still written and drawn by white guys. I think Jim Lee’s X-men may actually have been the first time I read an American comic by someone who wasn’t a white guy and, of course, as far as I knew he was Stan Lee’s grandson. And, like Cebulski, I was really into Manga, too.
However, Marvel is really working hard to appeal to readers who do care about it and want to see a diverse and respectful representation of all different types of people in the pages and behind the scenes of comics today. Honestly, it seems like that was one of the deciding factors bringing in Cebulski as he’s spent all this time actively promoting Marvel in China and, I assume, all around Asia.
So, it would be weird if they don’t get in front of the news and start strongly making that point.
