Dan Slott is a prolific and well-known comic book writer, with a ten-year-long run on Spider-Man (the longest of any writer) and well regarded runs on She-Hulk, Silver Surfer, Avengers: The Initiative, and The Thing.

Slott got his start writing children's comics like Mighty Mouse, Ren & Stimpy, Scooby-Doo, Looney Tunes, and Powerpuff Girls. His first real superhero comic series was a mini-series in DC called Arkham Asylum: Living Hell. This, in turn, led to him being hired by Marvel in 2004 for a new She-Hulk series where Slott had her join the Occult Law Firm of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway.

In 2007, he left She-Hulk to become one of the four main writers on Amazing Spider-Man. Beginning in 2010, he would become the sole writer for the book and remain the sole writer all the way until 2018. Slott's run contained a lot of defining moments for Spider-Man, including Spider-Island (where everyone on Manhattan suddenly gained spider powers), Superior Spider-Man (where Doctor Octopus, having switched bodies with Peter and killed him, tries to become a better hero than Spider-Man), and Spider-Verse (where Peter teamed up with a bunch of alternate universe Spider-People and was the basis for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). His last storyline for the webhead was Go Down Swinging.

In 2016, Slott and Mike Allred won an Eisner Award for Silver Surfer #11. Their Silver Surfer series was praised for being fun and new, while also appearing quite similar to a certain time-traveling doctor and his companion.

In 2018, Slott started runs on both Fantastic Four (returning after a couple of years on hiatus) and Tony Stark: Iron Man. He wrapped up his Iron Man run in 2020 with Iron Man 2020.
