Subj: ...and so like Bendis and Alonso are the only two people on the planet who can use diverse characters?

Reply Subj: Well, it was nice to have a diverse Marvel for a few years...too bad that's going to change

Axel Alonso is gone. Bendis is gone. Both are big proponents of having diverse characters. Bendis sheparded Miles Morales and Jessica Jones. Axel Alonso sheparded Ms. Marvel, the new Captain Marvel, the Reyes Ghost Rider. Now they're gone and the guy who said that "Diversity doesn't sell" and who argued with Bendis and Alonso in public about it, is still there. Oh yeah, and they hire Ron Richards, a serial abuser and harasser in a VP role. And with CB Cebulski coming in as EIC who wants to bring back old 1980s Marvel, with no real vision...it just strikes me as Marvel hustling to not reach out to new and different voices. Cebulski is an expendable part of Marvel...he's going to rely on marketing to tell him to edit comics. And the guy who said, "Diversity doesn't sell" is going to be throwing out interesting stuff for same old, same old.

Don't get me wrong, plenty of things to not like Axel Alonso and Bendis for: Secret Empire is top on my list of "WTF?" But this strikes me as "We are going to end up fridging and obscuring a lot of minorities and women soon."

Dude: you're not making any sense.

Just 'cause those two are gone doesn't mean it's all KKK and White supremacy here on out. Marvel had Ororo Monroe and the Black Panther and Sam Wilson and so on so on long before Alonso and Bendis were even out of diapers.
