Speaking at Animex Comics
Marv has created more characters that have gone on to television, animation, movies and toys than any other comics creator since Stan Lee. Marv is the writer-creator of Blade, the Vampire Hunter, Bullseye, the prime villain in the 2003 movie, Daredevil and was the writer-creator of the New Teen Titans which was adapted into a runaway hit show on the Cartoon Network. Some of his other characters will soon be seen in the upcoming Man of Steel movie as well as the CW network’s new Arrow TV show.
Marv was Editor-in-Chief at Marvel Comics, senior editor at DC Comics and founding editor of Disney Adventures magazine and created many characters for these companies and others. Marv was also Editorial Director for 15 graphic albums for the educational market, targeting high school students who read with a 3rd - 5th grade level. He was given a special commendation by the White House for his work on three anti-drug comics for the Just Say No programme.
Marv writes video games (most recent: Epic Mickey 2 - will be on sale this November) and has written the video games for Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters, Superman Returns, DCU-MMO, Flash and Dark Knight among many others. He also writes animation and has story-edited many shows including Transformers, Adventures of Superman, Monster Force and more. He is currently writing an animated movie for China.
Marv also writes novels; his adaptation of Superman Returns won the industry's Scribe award. His first non-fiction book, Homeland, The Illustrated History of The State of Israel won the National Jewish Book Award among others.
Marv is married to his lovely wife, Noel, a Director of Production at Blizzard entertainment, and has a wonderful daughter, Jessica, from his first marriage. Marv and Noel also have an obstreperous Keeshond dog named Elle Dee Deux (L.D.) who is currently chewing on everything that is and isn't nailed down.
