In the footsteps of celebrated comic book legend Stan Lee comes Bill Rosemann, who creates superhero stories and characters that resonate with audiences of all ages. Throughout his 20-plus year career in the industry, Rosemann has been a journalist, copywriter, script writer, "Your Man @ Marvel" blogger, marketing director, project manager and editor, a depth of experience that has allowed him to understand all sides of this colorful world.

From Marvel to DC Comics and back to House of Ideas, Rosemann has worked alongside the industry's top creators, while writing and editing titles starring famous characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Batman, Superman and the Avengers. Some of Rosemann's work is being translated in to upcoming movies, including: Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: Winter Soldier.  He now oversees Marvel Custom Solutions publications as well as monthly comics including Avengers Arena, which he describes as "The Hunger Games with superheroes."

The comics that Rosemann creates present metaphors for all those who aspire to unleash their own extra-ordinary abilities. In 2012, Rosemann led a Marvel team that created the new hero "Blue Ear" -- in response to a mom who wrote that her son didn't want to wear his hearing aid to school because "superheroes don't wear hearing aids," -- a testament to the ability of superheroes to touch lives and inspire change.

Inspirational and entertaining, Rosemann gives audiences a rare look inside the world of an iconic brand while dispensing insights into what we can learn from these larger-than-life characters to tap into our own super-human potential in career and life.
