Gerard "Jerry" Calabrese has been President of Marvel Comics, then a division of Marvel Entertainment Group, Inc. from May 1995 to Mid 1996 and President of Marvel Enterprises, Inc. from October to November 1998.
Calabrese first succeded Terry Stewart as Marvel Comics' President in May 1995, later being responsible of launching the Heroes Reborn initiative in 1996. He contacted Shirrel Rhoades in June 1996 to be the acting Publisher of Marvel Comics, replacing Stan Lee. He was later fired by Marvel Entertainment Group's CEO Bill Bevins in mid-1996, replaced by ad interim President Scott C. Marden.
After Toy Biz, Inc. owners Isaac Perlmutter and Avi Arad took control of Marvel Entertainment Group from Ronald Perelman and Carl Icahn in June 1998, merging the company with Toy Biz, creating Marvel Enterprises, Inc. on September 27, 1998, they hired Jerry Calabrese as the new President, who was ordered to "make house-clean". Tired of Perlmutter's mean behavior, Calabrese resigned from his position in November 1998, while his duties passed on Board of Directors executive Eric Ellenbogen.
