    Because they want the X-Office to be as good as his, which won't happen unless the X-Office becomes his.

    That, calling young Scott Summers 'Kid Hitler' (aka calling Cyclops Hitler) when we clearly know he did nothing to earn that moniker, and the general trolling of the X-books or x-fans whenever her can. That's why we don't care for him.

    Forget Perlmutter, his name always comes up in this and he is irrelevant to this discussion. He looks after the whole of Marvel outside of the movies, he is not worried about editorial concerns. He just happened to have a voice on the old committee that gave notes in the early MCU days alongside people like Bendis. He’s a businessman, not a creative type. He is also a bloody good businessman that doesn’t deserve the ridiculous scorn poured on him by fans.
    When agitated, Perlmutter threatens employees and colleagues with the IDF-issued pistol he keeps strapped to his ankle. He's a lunatic.

    He's also close friends with Donald Trump. That alone says everything that needs to be said about the man.

    If it wasn’t for him WB would probably own Marvel by now.
    If only.

    The weekly Avengers event books have been the most fun comics I've read in a while. I'd love to see the X-Books created by the likes of Mark Waid, Jim Zub, Al Ewing, Paco Medina, Sean Izaakse, and Kim Jacinto.

    Brevoort's hair is beautiful, so that hat is actually a crown that he will pass on to Lowe when he retires after losing to him in the 2064 editorial blood match.

    Ah well everyone who has ever worked for or with him seems to disagree.

    Like I said, this has nothing whatsoever to do with him. Even if he is a maniac, which seems highly unlikely and not verifiable here. He isn’t an editor, he is very unlikely to care one bit what the writers do on X-Men books. He was probably on the MCU committee to make suggestions about what is or isn’t marketable as merchandise or licensing deals because he knows Marvel toys and brand value more than he knows story writing.

    My primary reason is because he bent over backwards to try to erase Polaris from the Magnus family (including having an HoM portrait redrawn to remove her), replace her dynamic with the twins using other characters, and made convoluted excuses for why Lorna "couldn't" be Magneto's daughter but Siryn could somehow be Banshee's. Also a problem that he's been behind terrible events like Secret Empire, or other things that disregarded Lorna's place in things like Axis and her history with Genosha.

    I think I've actually been pretty docile in my complaints concerning him, too.
    I can also be reached on Twitter and WordPress.

    Polaris 50th anniversary minicomic written by me and drawn by Mlad, now complete!

    That's fair enough, thanks for the explanation. Personally, I tend not to judge an editor on their treatment or opinion on fictional characters, but rather on the kind of talent they bring to the books they edit, but to each their own.

    I don't know anything about the man personally, and I'm sure he may be enjoyable to work for, but the damage done under his watch to the X-Line (the "Cyclops is Hitler" claim, the outright admittance that the company isn't pushing the X-Men due to the lack of movie rights [which created the CompleX], etc.) has done to endear me to him professionally. Some of that may have come from higher up, but a good portion undoubtedly came from or was endorsed by him.

    So, yeah, not a fan.
    What can I say but, "I love comics."

    He has nothing to do with the X-Books.
