Marvel Editor-in-Chief Talks Big 2017 Plans, Netflix & MCU Comic Book Tie-Ins

Marvel Comics just came off a banner 2016, and this year's looking even bigger. Editor-in-chief Axel Alonso stopped by Fuse to speak about the publisher's goals for 2017. His personal biggest hope?

"I think it's to continue what we've been doing, which is to continue diversifying the line, the writers who are working on our books, and the characters who live in our world—while also bringing back some of our classic characters and putting them back center-stage where they belong. For people who think we don't care about them, you're wrong, we've always had our eye on them."

Last summer, Fuse spoke extensively with Alonso about Marvel's changing face, led by characters like Riri Williams (a black teenager who attends MIT and becomes the new Iron Man), Kamala Khan (the Muslim, Pakistani-American successor to the historically blond-haired, blue-eyed Ms. Marvel) and Amadeus Cho, a Korean-American Hulk.
