Marvel Has One Hell Of A Tea Party As Editors Change Places

It was chaos around the Marvel offices last Monday as Editor-In-Chief Akira Yoshida called the editors into his office for a tea party. As soon as editors Jordan D. White and Mark Paniccia sat down, Yoshida shouted, "Change places!" White and Paniccia both jumped to their feet and looked for the nearest open chair. 

This swap led Yoshida to exclaim, "White! You're on X-Men now! Paniccia! You're on Star Wars now!"

"I guess I'm going to have to learn what an X-Man is," said amateur ukelele player White.

"When I sat down, there was this little mini acoustic guitar on the chair. That's what this thing is right? A little guitar?" Paniccia asked holding up White's ukelele. "I guess I'm going to have to learn this little guitar."

Both editors were forced to take to Twitter to make their new roles known.


These transitions come about as Marvel is gearing up for its "fresh start" initiative which just involves moving creators, and now editors, around titles.
