    Nel 2017, Cebulski revealed he had used the pseudonym ‘Akira Yoshidain publishing several Marvel comics back in the early 2000s, most of which used Asian themes and characters, secondo Yahoo! notizia.

    ‘Completely unacceptable. Writing for Marvel is a childhood dream come true. My next issues come out in December,’ DeKnight’s Twitter missive continued.

    Da parte sua, Cebulski expressed regret over his co-opting of a Japanese name, adding that it was ‘never his intentionto cause anyone pain or anger.

    Marvel did provide the outlet a statement from 2017 when the initial controversy first took place.

    ‘I’m truly sorry for the pain, anger, and disappointment I caused over my poor choice of pseudonym,’ Cebulski said.

    ‘That was never my intention. Throughout my career in anime, manga, and comics, I’ve made it a point to listen and learn from my mistakes, which is exactly what I’ve been trying to do with this misstep.

    però, DeKnight was dismissive of Cebulski’s apology, claiming the issue is far more complex than just him adopting a Japanese pseudonym.

    'Personalmente, I’m not looking to destroy the guy’s life. But I also don’t think he’s fit to be the editor-in-chief, o,’ he added on Twitter.

    While DeKnight stopped short of calling Cebulski racist, he tweeted it did show a ‘deep lack of ethicsfor the top editors at Marvel Comics.

    The 57-year-old offered up a suggestion to his now-former boss, saying Cebulski should reach out to the Asian community and have a ‘truly honest discussionabout the controversy.
