Marvel's New Editor-In-Chief Pretended to Be Japanese to Get Work

Here's some Marvel news that actually isn't Infinity War related, but instead falls into its own bizarre category that nobody saw coming. Marvel's new editor-in-chief, C.B. Cebulski, who is a Caucasian man, has just admitted to writing under the Japanese-sounding pseudonym "Akira Yoshida" in the early 2000s while he was an associate editor at Marvel. Many in the industry have believed that Akira Yoshida was a real person of Japanese descent and apparently Marvel Comics bragged about how unusual it was to find a non-Westerner that could write American comics so well. As it turns out, they were bragging about a white dude who was posing as Japanese writer who grew up on Manga.

Bleeding Cool broke the story and now C.B. Cebulski has admitted that he is, indeed, Akira Yoshida. According to the article, Cebulski first adopted the name around 2004, when he was already an associate editor at Marvel.

Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Posed as Japanese Comic Writer, Fans Shocked

  • The Wrap
It turns out a popular comic book writer — who fans had been led to believe is Japanese — is actually a white American guy. New Marvel Comics editor-in-chief C.B. Cebulski has now admitted he posed as “Akira Yoshida,” a popular Japanese manga writer. The revelation comes after years of denials from Cebulski, according to fan site Bleeding Cool, which reported Cebulski even created a phony backstory to explain Yoshida’s origins. “I stopped writing under the pseudonym Akira Yoshida after about a year,” Cebulski told the Bleedingcool.com, which first reported the story on Tuesday. “I was young and naïve and had a.

A Mystery Marvel Hero May Pop-Up In The Punisher

Marvel and Netflix's epic experiment with street-level superheroes is an amazing success, spawning multiple seasons for each show and spinning-off one new series (so far): The Punisher. Beginning in 2015 with Daredevil, and shortly thereafter Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, we've traveled through the greasy underbelly of New York's toughest neighborhoods -- and fans want more, much more! Even though each show's lead hero and primary villains have received all the media attention, it's the secondary and surprise characters -- from Misty Knight to Colleen Wing to Frank Castle to Stick and Elektra -- who've shaped and defined these worlds.

Daredevil Season 2 alone gave us Elektra, Frank Castle, and The Hand! Consequently, when each series is renewed (or a new series is announced), there's understandable excitement and speculation regarding who else might pop-up -- we've certainly written several articles on this topic! The Punisher arrives on Netflix this fall,

The Punisher might introduce another Marvel hero

We just received our first-look at The Punisher in the form of a brief teaser, but beyond that, we are actually fairly in the dark. We don’t know the specifics of the The Punisher’s plot, aside from knowing that it will be very violent, and will not go out of its way to portray Frank Castle as a hero.

However, we may have just received something of note. According to McU Exchange, who attended the recent Asia Pop Comic-Con, C.B. Cebulski — Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Creator and Content Development — dropped a very interesting piece of information:

“… another Marvel hero may be showing up [in The Punisher].”

Who could this be? No way to tell. It’s logical to think that he is simply teasing a member of The Defenders, and that this is just another cross-over. Now, who could that be? It would be pretty interesting to see Luke Cage

Netflix’s The Punisher May Include Another Marvel Hero

By now, most of us will have binge-watched all eight episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders and are left wondering “so, what’s next?” Well, coming up we have a handful of follow-up seasons to all four of the Defenders’ solo shows, as well as a spinoff for The Punisher, who previously appeared on Daredevil.

While those are all well and good, it would be in the studio’s best interests to inject some new blood into this corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to keep it fresh. By the time The Defenders season 2 rolls out – it hasn’t been confirmed just yet, mind you, but it’s surely a cert – we want to see the likes of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage team up with some different heroes.

But which new characters would be perfect fits for the gritty, grounded – but with a mystical edge – world of the Marvel/Netflix series?

Manga-Inspired Captain America: Civil War Poster Art by Fairy Tail’s Hiro Mashima

As a way to celebrate the premiere of Captain America: Civil War in Japan, Rave and Fairy Tail manga creator Hiro Mashima created two cool posters for the film in his art style.

The first poster is a large scale print that features Iron Man and Captain America in the heat of battle. The other poster features characters from Mashima's Fairy Tail manga series divided into two groups in an intense stare off, which is based on the designs of other Civil War posters that have been released. That was a mini poster that was given to audience members who attended opening night of the film.

According to Anime News Network, “Mashima is a self-professed fan of the Avengers series while Marvel's vice president of international business development & brand management C.B. Cebulski is a fan of Mashima's work.”

Attack On Titan Is Everywhere, and It’s Awesome

Attack On Titan Is Everywhere, and It’s Awesome
It’s a good time to be an Attack On Titan fan.

Hajime Isayama‘s manga/anime series, called 進撃の巨人 (Shingeki no Kyoujin, “Advancing Giants”) in Japan, is infiltrating Western popular culture in a way that hasn’t really been accomplished since Cowboy Bebop or Neon Genesis Evangelion. The 25-episode anime aired on Adult Swim, every new volume of the comic series sells in the millions of copies, and the English-language branch of Kodansha publishing can barely put out enough spinoffs to meet demand (so far we’ve gotten Attack On Titan: Before The Fall, Attack On Titan: No Regrets, and Attack On Titan: Junior High). The Colossal Titan (pictured above) has become as iconic as any supervillain and inspired its share of merchandise and visual tributes. And oh, yeah—a live action movie is happening.

We got the first taste of what the live action Titans

New Artwork Teased for Attack On Titan and Avengers Crossover

A bit of new artwork has surfaced for the upcoming Attack on Titan and Avengers comic crossover. The art is being done by Marvel Comics artist Gerardo Sandoval. The art you see here comes from Brutus Magazine, and it’s a comic panel that features Spider-Man violently hitting a female 46-foot tall Titan as Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Captain America look on. The story features the team of heroes battling a Titan that has invaded New York City.

The Marvel’s Attack On Titan issue of Brutus will hit stores in Japan on November 15th. Marvel's C.B. Cebulski revealed the following on Twitter:

"Attack on Titan/Marvel story in @BRUTUS_mag: 1.) it is plotted by Hajime Isayama himself & 2.) it will run in Japanese & English there."

I do love that Attack on Titan creator Hajime Isayama is the one who plotted the story for this. I can't wait to read it!

Attack On Titan and Marvel Crossover Will Feature The Avengers

Some new details have surfaced regarding that Attack on Titan and Marvel Comics crossover that was announced by Marvel Comics talent scout C.B. Cebulski a couple of days ago. A piece of concept art showed Spider-Man swinging away from a couple of Titans chasing after him. It looks like Spider-Man won't be the only one involved, though. The upcoming comic will also feature the Avengers team!

According to Japanese pop culture magazine Brutus, issue #790 will include a "what if" comic that will feature the Avengers battling a giant female Titan in the streets of New York City. Could we see Tony Stark develop some kind of giant Titan fighting armor for this battle? Because that would be badass! 

Unfortunately, as of right now, there are no plans to release the comic crossover in the Us. It's a Japanese exclusive, but I wouldn't worry. I'm sure it will find its way onto the internet.
