    Donít you think itís pandering or playing on ethnic stereotypes? Iím Jewish and I like the fact thereís Jewish characters like Moon Knight and Kitty Pryde who are just incidentally Jewish and not trying to uncover ancient rabbinical secrets. I think Korean-American readers would similarly like incidentally Asian characters whose identity is multi-faceted and not trying to discover ďancient Korean magicĒ, whatever that means.

    Anyway, Iíve said my piece about it. You can reply if you want, but Iím done.

    Yeah, why the hostility towards a Korean writer bringing in her culture to the story she's telling? I like consuming media from other countries that bring in their cultures to see new things rather than the same old western centric narratives and concepts. At least don't rule it out just because of the premise and already call it "stereotypical" (which is weird you call it that since I can't think of examples of korean-themed storylines in mainstream superhero comics) without seeing the execution first.

    The whole social media thing does sound kinda iffy. Does anyone know anything about the writer? I'm googling her and I can't find a thing she's done.

    It's her comic writing debut

    Yeah, but what about other things she's done? I hope we don't get another Gabby Rivera situation in which the writer had barely done a thing, let alone their first work on comics, and ultimately killed the character for a while (only for America to be saved by her upcoming movie appearance).

    Googling just leads me to a cook. The interview doesn't highlight anything else she's done.

    The social media thing sounds like it will be continuing to explore Cindy's "woman out of time" aspect due to her decade in the bunker. We've seen her struggling with some of those issues in her previous solo projects--which is how she ended up getting nicknamed "Analog" by Jonah Jameson for her old-school tendencies.
    The social media aspect is giving me bad flashbacks to the last Champions run.

    I completely forgot that that's still happening.

    I figure they were looking for a new writer who fit ethnically and maybe found an unknown whose pitched they like?

    I liked the last Silk miniseries so I'll check it out. I have a soft spot for urban fantasy investigators since Yu Yu Hakusho. So the ancient Korean magic stuff feels right up my alley.

    I'm assuming the upcoming Amazon series is set in the Sonyverse. I don't mind if it's set outside of the MCU.

    Cindy is back not that I'm complaining. "Korean magic" well she fought a devil cat in her last series I'm guessing it will be more like that for this run

    Miyazawa doesn't seem to like drawing bobbed hair. He gave Spider-Gwen longer hair when he drew her book - she promptly reverted to a bob when another writer took over. So I'm certain that Cindy's hair will be long here.

You can be generous and say it’s been a year or two since she was released (more than enough time to catch up), but there was still a ton of social media around in the early 2010s… Facebook, Instagram, YouTube was all around. What’s new since then? TikTok? Seems like the writers are just looking for ANY angle to make her interesting.
    If anything the biggest thing that changed is how people react to stuff, since it's a lot more immediate now, that and influencers.

    We have multiple Spider-women/people who have bigger fanbases but they choose her why?And she's the one whose origin is tied to Peter the most which they will ignore since they can't use him, so again why?
    Probably because she scores a minority point, and hasn't been used in anything yet outside the comics, so gets an use and not Anya.

    Ah yes, that "holy menstruation" shit lol.

    Anyways, guess the "ancient Korean magic" can make Cindy stand out a bit more, either that or it'll be a gimmick she'll deal with lol.

    Oh well, may the new writer not fuck over Cindy.

    Figures, and they will change her a lot as well.The origin w/ Peter won't be a thing, the pheromones which if dealt w/ right could be interesting won't be a thing(def. not the same as comics, which I can't decide is good or bad) so IDK.

    Well, if the Venom movie is any hint, they're really willing to cut off the Peter connection lol.

    I doubt the pheromones thing is ever returning, it was the most widely despised thing about Cindy, and her first solo only vaguely alluded to it in a way that makes it sound like that Peter and Cindy just had a random fling lol.

    Best way it could be implemented is if neither character were into it, but I doubt they'd put such a heavily sexual thing in her again.

    Huh, was thinking she was back in limbo after Last Remains.

    So she was Carol's sidekick that one time in Carol's comic, friends with Sue in her own comic, now Natasha's sidekick, guess that breaks the blonde pattern .

    Yeah, atleast Raimi gave us a solid venom thing.

    Agreed, I think they could make it like a mild version of Drew's pheromones(I read in some (probably fake)early leak) but better dropped.

    Just have other Spiders show up in her solo, sales boost + great chance to interact

    So I googled and found the announcement about SONY working with Amazon Prime for the SILK show.

    I've only encountered Cindy here&there about the Spidey books. Much like my Ghost Spider(Spider-Gwen) familiarity. I did buy the Spider-Gwen Omni to help with that.
    Wonder if we will get a SILK Omni? Surely there is enough material for one now or will be soon.
