    Guess he didn't want to move to California. He'll be an asset to Marvel, especially since Wacker left.

    F**k, awesome signing by Marvel. DC better have a killer replacement in place for Batman.

    Marts has delivered an exceptional period of success.

    Interesting. Although... whoever gets their hands on Soule, is the true champion!!!

    While Marts seems more poised to do a better job than many, I really hope this isn't an instance of DCs patented editorial interference rearing it's ugly head at Marvel. I'm inclined to believe that Dan Didio and Warner Bros are the perpetrators of that garbage though, his past work at Marvel was very fruitful, it'd be nice if they created a Cosmic editor and gave that to Marts, seems like those jobs have fallen under the purview of a scattershot group of editors instead of having their own cohesive vision and corner of the Marvel U

    He didn't really leave Marvel, he just moved over to animation. The Spider-Man books could use an editor like Marts though.

    Isn't this the guy that told Paul Jenkins "Batman never sits"?

    I wonder if moving to animation is going to stop all his posting.
    Maybe he will in animation threads.

    Interesting news, but not too unexpected. I wonder what role Martz will have going forward. Wouldn't mind seeing him take over the Ultimate books. It's not like those can get much worse.

    He should continue to troll the over reactors in the Spider-boards. They need someone like Wacker in their lives.

    I have the feeling more DC editors who don't want to uproot from the East Coast will be joining Marvel.
