Power-Mad X-Editor Jordan White Promoted at Marvel

Ukulele-wearing, fedora-playing X-Men editor Jordan White has been named a Senior Editor at Marvel, White revealed on Twitter Friday. The promotion comes just weeks after White declared “Wow, so Bleeding Cool did an article about my thoughts on Ween. Can I get them to write an article about ANYTHING I tweet on Mondays?”

It’s unknown whether White’s perceived influence over Bleeding Cool articles on Mondays was a factor in his promotion, but White has made clear on Twitter that he believes he can reliably secure a Bleeding Cool article about “anything I want” on Mondays, so long as he does not tweet about the internationally recognized holiday of #XMenMonday.

White, who runs what is objectively the most important comic book franchise in all of comics, has frequently shirked tradition on #XMenMonday, refusing to post the usual previews of upcoming X-Men books in favor of promoting his career as a musical recording artist or celebrating holidays. In fact, the last time White posted any #XMenMonday previews was way back in 2018, which we would like to remind our readers was last year.

After receiving the promotion on Twitter, White touted his accomplishments and quick rise to power, calling his previous appointment to run the X-Office “a huge deal,” and his latest promotion “an absolute thrill.”

White also confirmed that he will continue to rule the X-Men offices under his new title.

With seemingly nothing to stop White’s march toward power, will he soon be Marvel’s next Editor-in-Chief? More importantly, will he actually tweet some damn X-Men previews on #XMenMonday next week? And if he doesn’t, will his claims that he can force Bleeding Cool to produce an article about anything he tweets prove true?

Look! We’ve… we mean, he’s already got you eating out of the palm of his hand.

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.


About News with Benefits

Why let facts get in the way of a good story? News with Benefits is just like the actual news, but more interesting because it’s embellished. Yes, it may feature made-up quotes, wrong assertions, and completely baseless speculation, but in a way, isn’t that more honest than the shameless buttkissing and corporate shillery you often find in the “real” news? Don’t answer that.

News with Benefits was pioneered at toilet-themed comic book news and opinion website TheOuthousers.com, which is sadly now defunct, but its stench lives on thanks to the support of your clicks and outraged comments.
