Editor-in-Chief at Creator/MarvelComics between 2000-2011, and a very polarising figure indeed. Started off as an artist, probably best known for his work on ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}. He took the editor job in 2000 and, while comic sales have risen since he took over, they are still a shadow of the sales in the UsefulNotes/SilverAge through the 1980s.

Currently holds the position of Marvel's Chief Creative Officer, tasked to "ensure that all portrayals of Marvel's characters and stories remain true to the essence of Marvel history."

'''Some editorial decisions:'''

* ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'s ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'', which attempts to make Peter Parker YoungerAndHipper by dissolving his marriage to Mary Jane Watson.
* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Jean Grey]] coming BackFromTheDead was also "corrected" by having her killed off, despite her massive CharacterDevelopment since then.
* He evidently preferred Emma Frost being altered to more of a HeelFaceTurn and SpoiledBrat than even when she was a villain. So he "rewarded" Emma by sticking her into Jean's place, including being Scott Summers's LoveInterest, which started with them kissing over Jean's grave.
* He and Creator/BrianMichaelBendis had [[ComicBook/TheAvengers The Wasp]] killed off, again claiming that her now widowed husband, Hank Pym, is now "more interesting" without her.
* Forced ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and ComicBook/NickFury to drop their iconic cigars, which they'd had for roughly 30 and 40 years respectively. Killing, maiming and making deals with Satan stand-ins is okay otherwise. [[FridgeLogic Smoking doesn't even harm Wolverine]], due to his HealingFactor. When he temporarily lost it, he had to quit.
* The Decimation of Mutants that happened after ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', which reduced the number of mutants (hundred of thousands, thought obviously only a tiny percentage were named characters) to just 198. Apparently, this was done to counter Quesada's perceived UniquenessDecay of mutants.
* Censoring trade paperbacks.
* He likes big, big, BIG [[CrisisCrossover crossover events]].
