No one could be more thrilled then Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. “Mike Marts is a seasoned veteran who’s edited some of the most critically acclaimed and highest-selling series of the last decade,” says Alonso. “I’m overjoyed to see him return home, and I can’t wait to see what he brings to Marvel!”

“It’s amazing to see how Marvel has grown as a company since I worked there last,” says Marts. “I am beyond thrilled to be rejoining this powerhouse at such an exciting time.”

  1. DC and Marvel trading editorial staff back and forth doesn’t seem to be helping the comic industry. I think it’s time for new blood that can see comics in a new and different light. Let them expand on ideas without ruining what’s sacred to the characters. The comic industry could be a much more important part of pop culture instead of just a movie machine. There’s so much great writing out there, but often times there’s a move from editorial that really nixes the skill of a writer and it’s does just one more disservice to the industry.
