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.
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, with Carlo Barberi filling in on the first issue after the Secret Invasion tie-in This was followed by the Dark Reign story "How Low Can You Go?", which also sees the return of Bob, Agent of HYDRA. After this concludes, "Magnum Opus" begins, which is a 4-issue crossover with Thunderbolts.
