Career[edit] Tom Brevoort
Tom Brevoort
began working for Marvel Comics
Marvel Comics
as a college intern in 1989,[3] Commenting on his rationale for taking a non-paying entry-level job, Brevoort recalls, "Well, obviously, to get a leg up on getting into the business." Brevoort went on to say, “In the illustration program I attended at the University of Delaware, senior students were required to get and serve an internship at some company or institution related to the field of illustration. In our initial freshman orientation, the head of the department mentioned that they had previously placed one student at Marvel Comics, so I figured that was where I would set my sights."[4] Brevoort worked his way up to an assistant editor and later an editor in his own right. From 2007, he held the title of Executive Editor with Marvel and was responsible for multiple series including New Avengers, Civil War, and Fantastic Four.[3] In July 2010, Brevoort and fellow Marvel editor Axel Alonso
