Marvel Comics Amend Ardian Syaf's Artwork On X-Men: Gold #1 By Adding A Grocery

They took a little longer than I was expecting. But Marvel Comics has now amended the artwork on the digital version of X-Men: Gold #1 by Ardian Syaf to remove the messages interpreted as being anti-Christian and anti-Jewish, that caused Syaf himself to be removed.

These original panels with these messages…

Have now been amended to this.

The 212 has become "Grocery Store", the "Jewelry" is gone, the references to 51 and 5 have also gone. Pizza restaurant name "Pierre" has also been removed for unknown reasons. Better safe than sorry?

This reference…

Has also gone.

And the verse on Colossus' shirt…

…is also missing.

And this scene, which some have interpreted as the German Christian character Nightcrawler striking the Jewish character Kitty Pryde…

Has been amended so the bat strike is further away from Pryde's face and torso.

If anyone else spies any more changes, do let me know.
