 Well, isn't that just like a woman.

Earth goddess, X-men Leader, Morlock champion, rebel punk, and master thief......but we all know what really matters.

Please , let that character be a skrull. I call on the goddess of comics and the saint of fangirls- let that character be a skrull...

It's not a matter of cultural diversity, it's a matter of communication. Cultural references people don't get that don't effect the core story are inconsequential. A reference to someone liking a band, dressing a certain way, having a favourite author, using a colloquial term you can understand by implication etc.

I'm glad you finally agree with me that a two page scene about a black character's hair doesn't need to be explained for the benefit of people who don't understand why it's rude to make personal comments and why the person being commented on is angry about those personal comments.

Well since that was the core of the story of those two pages, I would have liked a hint. Does that make me a bad person?
