Marvel Shocker: Joe Quesada Admits Donny Cates is His Secret Love Child

In the biggest Marvel scandal since the time we learned Akira Yoshida wasn’t a real person, or maybe even the time we learned Bill Jemas wasn’t a real person, Marvel executive Joe Quesada has taken to Twitter to admit that he is the father of global entertainment superstar Donny Cates. It all began when Cates complained about a lack of award nominations for his comic books, tweeting:

To which Quesada responded with support, earning gratitude from Cates, along with an old photo of Cates as a boy standing next to Quesada.

But in a shocking twist for the day after Father’s Day, Quesada then responded by dropping a scandalous revelation: Donny Cates is his secret love child!

Cates, for his part, seemed pleased to learn that Quesada was his dad, though Quesada has already begun disciplining the young writer about punctuality.

While giving Cates a chance to get to know his father, who is also his boss, is undoubtedly a good thing, it does raise questions about whether Quesada knew that Cates was his secret son before Cates was hired, and, if not, will Disney investigate allegations of potential nepotism at the House of Ideas?

Bleeding Cool will continue to follow this breaking scandal that has shaken the comic book industry to its core, and we’ll keep you updated on any new developments. In the meantime, we’re just happy that these two have finally been reconnected and can develop the father/son relationship they deserve.

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.
