Why must there be this push for empty diversity and false p/c. Do not fill a slot in the roster of a team because you are filling an ethnic quota system, but because you have an interesting and well writen story. There ethnicity should not be more important that who they are as a character.

I apologize if this is offensive, as it was not the intention....

Issues regarding race are always a sensitive subject when being introduced into the public community.

However, I would like to remind everybody that Marvel Comics is an inspiring tool that is sold in different languages all over the world, in different countries and different continents. That is something I wanted people to keep an "open-mind" about. Embrace diversity and what you can learn from different cultures and people. Heroes are people that bring diverse human beings together with the optimism to create positive change in the world together. Marvel Comics belongs to the world, not just America. However, keep an "open mind" that even America is supposed to be known as "the mixing pot" and the reason why it is so beautiful in the first place is because it embraces ethnic diversity to increase its ability to think new thoughts, promote teamwork, and see the world in possible new lights. This is Marvel Comics, these characters aren't here to steal your job or anything. Its fictional writing meant to inpire the world and make it a better place.

The US Army that I have served in war overseas is filled with admirable heroes of ethnic diversity, and I believe it is right and just for the world to see it too. Gandolf Gray just said "diversity is empty" CRAP MAN !!! Have you ever left your hometown before? You don't have to freak out because you're not used to seeing people who are different. This is the Year 2009 already, sir. Wake-Up!

I'm going to reword the instructions better. Thank you for letting me know where I have been ignorant in my sensitivity. I have to remember sensitivity.

Sincerely sorry for the misunderstanding,

Let's just simply focus on ranking ten characters, okay?
