Bleeding Cool reports that Bill Rosemann has been promoted from Editor to Creative Director at Marvel. Rosemann has edited some great books at Marvel, including Dan Abnett and Andy Lannings' very beloved Marvel Cosmic books, but his new role, according to Bleeding Cool, has more to do with his work on Marvel Custom Solutions, the Marvel division that will make a comic about anything if you pay them enough money. In addition to whatever the hell else Rosemann does for those books, he also writes some of the greatest promotional quotes in the history of public relations for them. To celebrate Rosemann's rise to the top, here's a collection of some of his best (completely real) quotes.
About Brian Dawkins:
One is the ferocious leader of the legendary X-Men and world-famous star of comic books, cartoons, video games and movies...the other is a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, a six-time All-Pro and a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team...both are the best they are at what they do.
About Cirque du Soleil:
What’s more jaw-dropping, the majesty of the Imperial Court…the dynamic dance of their martial arts display…the overwhelming might of the invading archer army…the desperate fight for survival in the storm-tossed seas…or the tantalizing glimpses at the future threats that await the Twins?
About fashion superheroine Spygal:
Marvel and Benefit both know that humor and intelligence can be a heroes’ greatest strength, especially when faced with life’s modern problems. SpyGal dispenses justice, beauty tips and witty life advice with an effortless grace, while also grappling with work and dating worries. Can SpyGal ever find Mr. Right…or must she sacrifice romance to the demands of her job helping powerful women spread their influence around the world?
Like the Marvel heroes who pull off last minute victories, Tim Tebow has fans around the world on the edge of their seats and believing that--in our own lives--when time is running out and all looks lost, we can dig deep inside and use our various strengths to triumph over insurmountable odds.
In an uncertain world, understanding how to save and properly budget your hard-earned money is one of the keys to personal success. The Avengers are not only the world's greatest heroes, but they also know a thing or three about financial health. After all, Iron Man hasn't managed his vast wealth of Stark Enterprises by accident, and, as Spider-Man learns in this story, you don't have to be a millionaire to be a saving hero.
Thanks to his armor, Iron Man can fly through the air and fire repulsor rays, but inside that hi-tech suit is Tony Stark, who, like us, is always learning new ways to make healthy decisions. [...] All of us at Marvel are proud to help readers of all ages realize that everyone—even Super Heroes—need to practice positive habits each day. And thanks to the unique mix of the power and relatability of the Marvel characters, we do it via an exciting and entertaining comic book!
While we like to poke fun at these quotes, we love Bill Rosemann, and it's not just because he has actually worked with us to get us interviews with Marvel talent like DnA (and only made us remove one quote from the dynamic duo). He seems to us like the kind of editor who adds to the books he's editing, and we're sure he's gonna knock it out of the park in his new position. In Bill's honor, we'd like to present you with the following quote:
Coca Cola is a delicious soft drink that can also be used to strip the anodizing off of aluminum, but, like Marvel Editor in Chief Bill Rosemann, you can also use it to marinade a pot roast. With Bill Rosemann at the helm of Marvel's Creative Directing, Marvel readers can look forward to a sweet and bubbly experience for years to come!
