Daniel Way (born December 27, 1974) is an American comic book writer.

Career[edit]

Way received the Xeric Foundation's Xeric Grant in 2000 for his first publication, Violent Lifestyle #1. Through Violent Lifestyle, Way was introduced to Marvel Comics editor Axel Alonso, who hired Way for a Deathlok mini-series that was cancelled prior to publication.[citation needed]

Way's first published work for Marvel was the "Heartbreaker" storyline in Spider-Man's Tangled Web #16 & 17. This was followed by Gun Theory, a mini-series with artist Jon Proctor under the revived Epic Comics imprint. The imprint proved to be short-lived, and Gun Theory was cancelled after only two issues. Way continued to work for Marvel; his subsequent work for the publisher includes Agent X #12, Bullseye: Greatest Hits, Ghost Rider, the "Prelude to Planet Hulk" storyline in The Incredible Hulk, Sabretooth: Open Season, Supreme Power: Nighthawk, Venom, What If...? Featuring Wolverine: Enemy of the State, Wolverine, and Wolverine: Origins.

Deadpool appeared briefly in the Wolverine: Origins story and then Way, with artist Paco Medina, launched Deadpool (vol. 2) in September 2008,[1] with Carlo Barberi filling in on the first issue after the Secret Invasion tie-in[2] This was followed by the Dark Reign story "How Low Can You Go?", which also sees the return of Bob, Agent of HYDRA.[3] After this concludes, "Magnum Opus" begins, which is a 4-issue crossover with Thunderbolts.[3]
