For more than 70 years, Marvel has been making comics, with writers and illustrators penning fantastic tales of good versus evil. Spider-Man, The Hulk and X-Men are just some of the company's heroes.
Alonso, pointing to characters in the comics, said, "That's' Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman and Magneto. ... I couldn't tell you who any of them were when I got the job."
That's because the latest caretaker of Marvel's famous characters is a guy who got into it by accident.
"Working in comics was never a goal," he said. "I went to Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, I wrote for a bunch of papers, but I actually answered an ad in The New York Times for editors at DC Comics. And I thought 'Oh, I'd kinda like to check that out."'
