What can we feasibly do about this? People act like we have some authority over this because we're a part of the comic book "community", but we don't.
We can control our own actions, we can call our friends out when they act like idiots but I cannot do anything to stop the creeps of this world from being creeps.
You said that you don't think Wood will experience any hurt professionally because of this story. Even if there was an organized boycott on Wood's work and it was actually effective the only thing that it would accomplish is that Wood no longer works for Marvel. What would need to happen is that there was a line wide boycott until something is done. And that's just not going to happen.
If any of that sounds like a "stuff happens get over it" to you then that's your problem. My point is "stuff happens educate yourself and don't let it happen to you"
