Why do you think that Marvel hired him and continues to keep him on? Why do you think that Marvel extended his mini to an ongoing? Apparently they see some benefit in him being on board, whether it be connections with Hollywood, BET, the urban community or something else. So if his lack in writing skill doesn't change the sales numbers, then one would expect other benefits to take priority.

I never said I expected them to consider firing him for whatever reason. I'm under no illusions that Marvel will keep Hudlin on the title as long as Hudlin wishes to remain, and will likely continue to prop up the title with even more crossovers.

Rather, I was simply stated that if they choose to fire him, then it'd be no great loss ;\)
