Letters from future Marvel alumni Ralph Macchio and William F. "Bill" Wu. Bill says " I can only repeat that no matter how good the intention of comics creators, such roles do act as racial representatives until we also see good Chinese mandarins in contrast to the deviant Fu Manchu and good Asian women in contrast to his - shall we say, weirdo - daughter."
