Based on information obtained from various sources deep inside Marvel Comics, The Outhouse can exclusively report that the announced creative teams behind the all-new female Thor and black Captain America, which happen to consist solely of four white men, are feeling extremely satisfied with their efforts to introduce more diversity to an industry that has catered disproportionately to white men for a long time. "We're really glad that women and African-Americans will finally have more high-profile role models in the realm of mainstream superhero comics, brought to them by some of the same white men who write and draw a vast majority of mainstream comics," the teams reportedly agreed. "We literally cannot think of any other way in which this much diversity could be introduced into the industry, and we hope that Marvel gets the credit they're due for allowing four white men to write and draw comics about a woman and a black guy."
"If we could say anything to all of the black and female readers out there who are probably just as excited as we are to see a bunch of white guys create comics about characters who look more like them," the white writers and artists all added, according to our sources, "it would probably be: you're welcome."
