Just in case you thought Axel Alonso's departure from Marvel was a 100% peaceful transition, you might want to take a look at the "Likes" page of Alonso's Twitter account. The former Marvel Editor-in-Chief has been liking tweets critical of the new and current Marvel Editor-in-Chief, C.B. Cebulski, as well as former colleague, Marvel Director of Content and Character Development Sana Amanat.
Cebulski admitted to Bleeding Cool yesterday that he wrote comics for Marvel and other publishers as a fictional Japanese man named Akira Yoshida, subverting a company policy forbidding editors from writing comics at Marvel. The controversy has been the talk of Twitter ever since, prompting the following tweet which earned a "like" from Alonso:

This morning, Amanat appeared on Channel NewsAsia to defend Cebulski, prompting some disappointed tweets from fans of her work at Marvel, which included the co-creation of Kamala Khan. Alonso has liked three of those tweets today:
Alonso has yet to comment on the story himself, but in this case, perhaps his use of the heart button on Twitter says more than enough. We reached out to Marvel for comment on this story, but they declined.
