He also entered the spotlight (kind of) as an official member of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's ComicBook/SecretAvengers after ''Siege''. In 2014, he got a new ongoing series with the first six issues by WarrenEllis and Declan Shalvey. After them, it became a rotating writer/artist book, with Creator/BrianWood and Greg Smallwood doing #7-13 and Cullen Bunn and Ron Ackins doing #14-17. Declan Shalvey remained on covers for a while and Jordie Bellaire on colours. Each issue was a done-in-one adventure (with some recurring background plots) rather than the more common arc-based structure.

*** Through flashbacks, [[UnreliableNarrator which should be taken with a grain of salt]], it's revealed that Marc has had the separate personalities of Steven Grant and Jake Lockley for most of his life, dating back to even when he was a boy.

* TheHunter: Is known as this for supernatural and street level enemies. His first ever appearance had him battling against Comicbook/WerewolfByNight, and the 2014 series seems to have restored him going after against street level violence as well as supernatural and just strange threats.

* EldritchAbomination: Khonshu, from the 2006 run onward. Originally he liked to appear as Bushman's faceless corpse and regularly goaded Marc to commit murder. Then as a malformed statue, still encouraging violence. Under Ellis he became a much colder figure, appearing mainly as Mister Knight with a terrifying bird skull for a head.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: Marc asks his tech guy to make him a bracelet with Wolverine-like retractable claws. Once it is finished, he asks if the claws are made of adamantium. The tech guy replies that would be pointless, since even with just regular high-tensile steel his arm would break well before the claws do.

* RetCon: Marc's mental illness goes through this back and fourth between Warren Ellis' revamp and later Jeff Lemire's relaunch. Ellis openly disliked Marc apparently 'catching' DID by pretending to be other people and so explained this as the result of Khonshu's influence. Lemire, who found the mental illness aspect interesting, brought it back, explaining that Marc had been suffering DID ''before'' he became Khonshu's avatar, with 'Stephen Grant' first emerging while he was in school (thus, ''not'' the result of him 'catching' it ''or'' the result of Khonshu). Its not quite reached ArmedWithCanon yet, though.
