Tom Brevoort began working for
Marvel Comics as a college intern in
1989, 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."
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.
In July 2010, Brevoort and fellow Marvel editor
Axel Alonso began a
weekly column on
Comic Book Resources
Comic Book Resources called "Marvel T&A", a new
installment of which appears every Friday, along with Joe Quesada's
"Cup O' Joe" column.
On January 4, 2011, Brevoort was promoted to Senior Vice President of
Publishing of Marvel Comics.
