Sana Amanat, the editor behind Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel and many other fine Marvel comics, has been promoted to Director of Content and Character Development. This is a new title for Marvel, as far as I can tell, but I could be wrong. Amanat has definitely become a star editor at Marvel over the last few years, so this is a well deserved promotion.
Plus, as I was discussing in an interview the other day, while women creators and readers are well established in comics, female executives are not quite as out in front, so it’s a welcome promotion in many regards.
