Jessica Jones Creator Brian Michael Bendis Hops From Marvel To DC

"Brian is a great partner and has contributed incredible stories and characters to the Marvel Universe over the years", a representative for Marvel told Newsarama.

You look at the comic book landscape today, for the biggest names cranking out scripts, and you'd think of writers like Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and Mark Millar.

In a stunning move that will affect the comic industry for years to come, Brian Michael Bendis has confirmed his departure from Marvel Comics.

During his time with Marvel, Bendis has co-created a number of fan-favorite characters including Miles Morales, the young black and Latino Spider-Man (with Sara Pichelli), and Jessica Jones, the superhero-turned private investigator (with Michael Gaydos). I am bursting with ideas and inspirations.

So Bendis didn't like that and bailed on Marvel, which also had to do with the fact that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige fired him and Ike Perlmutter's Marvel Comics Creative Committee from being involved with the movies due to causing major interference and problems. Some of note though include Powers, New Avengers, Daredevil, Alias, Jinx, House of M, Secret Invasion, Spider-Woman and All-New X-MenHe also was lead writer on a few video games for Marvel, including Activision's Ultimate Spider-Man, Marvel Heroes, and an Avengers game that never saw release. This is an interesting announcement given that he is now writing Invincible Iron Man, Spider-Man II, Jessica Jones, and Defenders for Marvel. No indication was given as to when he will depart those titles or when he will start work at DC.

So which DC Comics IP would you most like to see Bendis have a hand in? We wish him luck in his future endeavors and, like DC, can't wait to see what he can do with a fresh slate of characters.
