Canadian comic book luminary and idol to millions, Ed Brisson, may be a successful Marvel Comics superstar who has written the likes of the X-Men, Wolverine, and X-Force, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still take time out of his busy schedule to give back to the community. Or, at least, he used to. According to a Facebook post by Brisson on Monday, he will no longer give talks to school children about his career thanks to one snarky “little turd” purposely spoiled Avengers Endgame for him.
“Today was the last time I give a talk to school kids on what I do,” Brisson said, revealing that potentially hundreds or thousands of Canadian children will grow up directionless without Brisson’s guidance. “Those of you who might have thought about having me in to talk at your kid’s school can thank the little turd who spoiled Avengers Endgame after I told the class that I hadn’t seen it yet and to please not spoil as I was finally seeing it this week.”
How Brisson has managed to go all this time without seeing Avengers: Endgame, or even being spoiled on it when he clearly uses the internet, is unknown at this time. Clearly Brisson has a special set of skills that make him more powerful than most mortals. Unfortunately, it seems that Brisson won’t be passing those skills on to youngsters thanks to one brat who couldn’t keep their mouth shut.
On the bright side, the future of Canada’s loss is our gain, as this surely means Brisson will have more time to write X-Men comics we can all read. Or is it?
This isn’t the first time Brisson has revealed that any little annoyance could have a drastic impact on the world when Brisson is involved. Back in April, Brisson revealed that he decides when he will kill off beloved X-Men characters in comics based on how cute he feels on any given day.
