Meet Marvel’s secret weapon, Ellie Pyle

Marvel Comics' new Executive Director of Digital Content talks working at Marvel, Women of Marvel, and the opportunities in working under Marvel Studios

In her two stints at Marvel, first in publishing and then largely in digital media, editor and producer Ellie Pyle has quietly made a big impact. As an assistant, and then associate, editor from 2010-2014, Pyle edited the Cullen Bunn/Will Sliney run of Fearless Defenders in which Valkyrie first came out as a queer woman.
