Matt Fraction is a writer of ComicBooks, mostly known from his works at MarvelComics and {{Comicbook/Casanova}}. While [[BrokenBase having his share of fans and haters]], he is considered one of the most friendly people in the industry.

Notable works by Matt-Fraction:
* ''{{Comicbook/Casanova}}''
* ''Comicbook/FearItself'' event
* ''TheFiveFistsOfScience''
* ''ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist'' #1-16, plus one-shots and annual (with Ed Brubaker)
* ''Invincible IronMan'' #1- ongoing
* ''TheMightyThor'' #1-ongoing, ''Thor'' #615-621, ''Thor: Ages of Thunder'' one-shot.
* ''Uncanny ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' #500 (with Ed Brubaker), #501-529, #530-534 (with Kieron Gillen), including crossover with ''DarkAvengers''.
* ''{{Hawkeye}}'' #1- one of the last series debuted before Marvel NOW!, critically acclaimed.
* ''ComicBook/TheDefenders'' (a new book debuting in late 2011, which will tie off one of the loose ends of ''Fear Itself'').
* ''Sensational SpiderMan'' Annual #1, the only Spider-Man story to be nominated for an Eisner award (note to Marvel: This story celebrated Peter's marraige to Mary Jane rather than approach it as a problem, might want to remember that someday)
* ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' and FF (takes over as part of the "Marvel NOW" restructure. Fantastic Four sees Reed, Sue, Ben, Johnny, Franklin and Val venturing on a family vacation for parts unknown when something goes wrong. FF will revolve around Ant-Man (Scott Lang), She-Hulk (Jen Walters), Medusa and a new character named Miss Thing, who are house sitting while Reed and co. are away. And Scott's plans against Doctor Doom for [[spoiler: killing his daughter, Cassie "Stature" Lang, at the end of Avengers: The Children's Crusade.]]
* ''ComicBook/SatelliteSam'', a {{Noir}} MurderMystery revolving around a television studio during the GoldenAgeOfHollywood that's thrown into turmoil when the star of the titular ''FlashGordon''-esque TV series is killed, leaving his son both stuck with his father's role and investigating his death.
* ''ComicBook/SexCriminals'', critically acclaimed and based on the admittedly ridiculous premise of a young couple who stop time when they orgasm and (naturally) use this ability to rob banks and save their ailing local library.

!Tropes Embodied by Matt Fraction:
* AwesomeMcCoolName: There is no way in hell he is not an actual crime fighter with a name like ''Matt Fraction''.
** He ''isn't'' a real crime fighter - it's a pseudonym. His real last name is Fritchman.
* LyingCreator: While advertising a crossover between ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' and ''DarkAvengers'', Fraction said that [[GentleGiant Colossus]] will have important role, being their major power-up in a fight against a team featuring [[FlyingBrick Sentry]] and [[TheBrute Ares]], strongly suggesting that Colossus will have to fight one of them. He hasn't met either. Fraction also promised interactions between Noh-Varr and girls from ''New X-Men'', but he hasn't appeared anywhere near any of them.
* NiceGuy: In a very short time, he befriended basically everybody at Marvel, from Creator/BrianMichaelBendis to Creator/JephLoeb to WarrenEllis, and many writers admit they enjoy spending time with Fraction and sharing their story ideas with him.
** At San Diego Comic-Con, he apparently bought a fan a copy of ''Batman: Year One'', after hearing that the fan had never read it.
* BrokenBase: His tenure as writer of ''Invincible Iron Man'' firmly divided the fandom into people who loved his writing, and those that despised it.
