Ben Morse Leaves Marvel to Become a UNLV Professor

Marvel Editorial Director of Digital Media, podcast host, and man of various other roles Ben Morse announced on Twitter that today was his last day working at Marvel. But the reason for Morse’s departure is no coded message. Morse is leaving the company to become a professor at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. But what happens in Vegas won’t stay in Vegas! Morse invited everyone to continue to follow and comment on his “exploits,” and like any good Marvel character, left the door open for a return in the future.

Check out his tweets below:

If Marvel thought they were going to get any work out of Morse on his last day, they were mistaken. Morse spent the remainder of the afternoon graciously thanking the dozens of comics industry professionals and pretty much anyone else wishing him well. No, we’re not exaggerating. Morse has thanked hundreds of people already and is still thanking them now. Apparently that’s the kind of guy he is.

Good luck to Ben Morse, and we encourage him, when he gets to Vegas, to look up the world famous Professor Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms, who teaches a course in Boxofficeology at a very prestigious community college down the road from UNLV on the second Saturday of every month.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
