    The use of Russia as the story line setting is an aspect that you may want to reconsider to avoid unnecessary political polarization, neo-Cold War politics, etc. The same goes for the ‘CCCP’ moniker on Divinity’s helmet as part of his uniform … Not only is it outdated, and non-existent in contemporary Russia; but it also connotes a failed national experiment; as was the case with the space expedition that Divinity was sent on 50 years earlier. While the acronym does define the abbreviation of the Russian nation at the time of the space quest; it is divisive, and not a necessary aspect of Divinity’s armor going forward. Simple removal of it from the uniform will solve that so easily. The use of the term ‘white’ woman is not descriptive, baseless, and faulty considering our current understanding of how color codes were used to create race-based initiatives in our checkered, insensitive past. Modern customers of comic books, graphic novels and animation are much more knowledgeable and critical of organizations which are not informed and sensitive to issues of fairness, and respect for diversity. It is totally possible to be reality-based, thoughtful and entertaining at once. As an experienced researcher, writer and fan, I would love to assist you in other ways if you are open to that. Please keep up the great work. I look forward to enjoying your successes as a fan of the art form, and your unique brand of superhero development at Valiant.
