    It doesn't say "The neighborhood outside your window," it says "The world outside your window." As in, the whole world, from local to national to international, which is why Marvel stories featured stories about current events and at least implicitly referenced real political leaders.

    Also, the point is that it's not just one person's window. The reason for increasing character diversity is to reflect the audience's diversity -- to recognize that the audience consists of people from diverse ethnic groups and genders and trying not to make them feel left out. White readers might have had a mostly white population outside their window, while black readers might have lived in an area with an overwhelmingly black population. So it's not just one window, it's every reader's window.

    Fair enough, I don't want to knock the push for representation and diversity just that people may have different ideas of what that means.

    Which is why it's important to listen to different people's ideas, rather than limiting oneself to one's own. Which is beyond the capability of the idiots complaining about Sabra or black Ariel or whatever.

    If that's legit, it's not bad.

    Not saying it isn't the case but I notice at no point is there an actual quote attributed.

    Is that really worth a spoiler tag? I mean, his comics fans always knew that.
