Alex Schlesinger is a Social Worker, social work trainer, and freelance Comics News journalist based out of Seattle, Washington.

As a Comic News writer for Screen Rant, Alex's main focus is on Marvel Comics news, theories, and analysis, although he will also write about anything DC Black Label. Alex also loves to write about exciting new covers, fanart, and cosplay, inspired by beloved Marvel and DC heroes and villains.
