Axel Alonso becomes Marvel's EIC

So finally, after a decade, Joe Quesada is leaving the editor's office and giving the job to Axel Alonso.

But does that mean there's any good news? If this past decade is any indication, I don't think so. In fact, according to the following part:
Alonso joined Marvel in 2000 as a senior editor and helped oversee critically lauded runs of Amazing Spider-Man and the X-Men, along with revisioning western character Rawhide.
They cut that last part foolishly short; it's supposed to be Rawhide KID, and the MAX title they published that "revisioned" that old western hero depicted him so embarrassingly as "flaming gay" that it was reviled by many.

That aside, Alonso's work as an editor on Spidey and X-Men was nothing to write home about either. He was instrumental in the destruction of the Spider-Marriage, and that's one more reason why I realize this change in editors is certainly nothing to crow over.

As a result, I'm not sure if Alonso will even have much of a career as EIC ahead of him, with sales dwindling as they are, thanks in part to his own destruction.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
