Terry Kavanagh was a Marvel Comics editor from 1985 to 1997. Titles he edited during that time included MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS and NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D, and BLACK WIDOW. For the company he wrote such titles as MOON KNIGHT, AVENGERS, FANTASTIC FOUR, and X-MAN.
Terry also wrote for Marvel until the mid 2000s. He was one of the writers on the “Maximum Carnage” storyline which ran through the various SPIDER-MAN titles in 1993. He pitched a storyline involving the return of Spider-Man’s clone, which then formed the basis of the long running Spider-Man maxi-series THE CLONE SAGA.
In 2011, Terry co-founded the internet startup company www.mybeanjar.com. He also wrote and edited comics for Zenescope Entertainment from 2017 to 2019, and consulted on the Marvel Entertainment streaming series, MARVEL'S HERO PROJECT.
Howard Mackie is well known as a writer and editor for Marvel Comics from 1984 through 1991. From the AVENGERS to the X-MEN — with major stops along the way at SPIDER-MAN, GHOST RIDER and many others — Howard has created hundreds of stories and characters which have added to the deep catalogue of the Marvel Universe.
While working on the Avengers titles, Howard helped oversee the creation of characters like NEBULA-- who went on to be a major player in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and AVENGERS movies — and worked side by side with THOR writer and artist Walter Simonson, whose run on the Thor comic book heavily influenced all three of the Thor movies.
Howard’s full time writing career took off with a relaunch of GHOST RIDER and carried over to a 10-year continuous run chronicling the adventures of Peter Parker: SPIDER-MAN and his arch-nemesis, VENOM.
Howard helped writer Terry Kavanagh hone a storyline which came to be known as THE CLONE SAGA. Together, Terry and Howard — through this storyline — created many characters that are still being explored by Marvel across movies, television, animation, video games, and licensed toys.
Howard’s foray into the X-MEN began with a limited series featuring the popular character GAMBIT. That series is rumored to be under consideration for use in a future Gambit movie. He went on to contribute to numerous X-Men projects and characters.
Howard has continued to write a number of series for a variety of comic book companies. From DC Comics to Zenescope Entertainment… they have all availed themselves of Howard’s long-standing skills as a creator of characters and worlds.
