Yes, even comics

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

Kevin Feige has been named chief creative officer of Marvel Entertainment, Variety reports, putting him in a position to oversee Marvel Television, Marvel Animation, and Marvel Comics.

Feige will hold the role in addition to serving as president of Marvel Studios. As a part of the restructuring, Marvel Television — the division behind Marvel’s Netflix and Hulu shows, as well as Agents of SHIELD, Legion, and The Gifted — and Marvel Family Entertainment will move under the Marvel Studios umbrella.

According to Variety:

Dan Buckley will remain president of Marvel Entertainment. He will continue to oversee publishing both creative and editorial, reporting to Feige. Buckley will also oversee publishing operations, sales, creative services, games, licensing and events, reporting in those areas to Marvel Entertainment chairman Ike Perlmutter.

Marvel Comics editorial and executive staff, including Joe Quesada, Sana Amanat, C.B. Cebulski, and Stephen Wacker “will continue in their roles reporting to Buckley.”

With Marvel Comics under the sphere of “creative and editorial publishing,” Buckley would now report Marvel Comics concerns to Feige, rather than Perlmutter. The reclusive Perlmutter is the long-time chairman and former CEO of Marvel Entertainment, but made the news recently for the hundreds of thousands of dollars his family has donated to the campaign of President Donald Trump, for which he was allegedly rewarded with unofficial control of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
