Towers led much of the comics coverage at EW and has written for CBR, ComicBook, Paste, Image Comics’ Image+, and Marvel in the past, so she obviously know both the hacks and flacks side of the game.
She’s also a Mets fan, so this is clearly the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
If Marvel ever needed a strong utility player in the PR department, that time is now, so Towers looks like a good bet to fill that need. Since D’Lando left, Marvel’s Secret Empire news has largely been limited to fellow Disney division ABC, which is fairly unorthodox.
