Ex-‘Daredevil” Refuses to Work with Marvel Again Over Boss’ Controversial Past

Steven S. DeKnight, the former showrunner for Netflix’s Daredevil and current Marvel Comics author, has announced that he will end all ties to Marvel until the controversial Editor-in-Chief

addresses his past.

It was recently revealed that Marvel Comics’ editor C.B. Cebulski used to pretend to be Japanese to continue writing books under a different title.

Cebulski, who is a white man, used to write under the pseudo-Japanese name Akira Yoshida. He worked on a variety of major Marvel comics, including X-Men and Thor. Cebulski was not content with a pseudonym. He went to great lengths to portray Yoshida, a true Japanese man, in fake interviews where he spoke about his childhood in Japan and how he learned English through comic books.

In 2017, Cebulski was named Marvel’s new Editor in Chief and finally admitted that Yoshida was nothing but a creation.

“I stopped writing under Akira Yoshida’s pseudonym after about one year,” he stated in a statement that he made at the time. It wasn’t transparent but it taught me a lot more about writing, communication, and pressure. It was a young, naive time and I still had much to learn. This is now over, and I am Marvel’s new Editor in Chief. I am thrilled to share my Marvel experiences with the up-and-coming talent across the globe.

This has been known for many years, but the question of Cebulski being Yoshida’s actor has recently been brought up by critics.

DeKnight replied to the outcry on Twitter by confirming that he will not be working with Marvel in the future. “I cannot in good conscience accept any further work until this is resolved.” He wrote, “I hope other creatives follow suit.”
