He's been easy to hate him since 2000, he and Bendis and Jemas turned Marvel into something I didn't like much.
It's now 2013, talk about 13 years of suffering.

Joe spent too much time creating drama and flame wars....and in some kinds of business like this there is no such thing as bad publicity
For example there was this gem Joe gave
terrible comment by somebody professionally paid to sell toons and books-“What the F**k is DC anyway?” Mr. Quesada said, stoking the fires. “They’d be better off calling it AOL Comics. At least people know what AOL is. I mean, they have Batman and Superman, and they don’t know what to do with them. That’s like being a pornostar with the biggestdick and you can’t get it up. What the F**K?” (Paul Levitz, DC’s president and publisher, declined to comment for this story through a spokesperson.) –
Have been looking up discussions and articles on Queseda's reign as EIC tonight in part due to a discussion about various comic company's bans on smoking and drinking in comics. A (locked I assume, as it had no replies enabled on it) thread expressing outrage at Queseda's Smoking Ban came to my attention, and I had to chuckle at this supposed totalitarian-esque outright ban on smoking in comics during Queseda's reign. I can cite a truckload of different issues published under this so-called mandate that explicitly featured characters - heroes and villains - smoking and drinking themselves into oblivion.
If that was supposedly a top-down editorial mandate, it was sure as hell never enforced to any degree.
