Okay, that explains a lot...
It's going to be interesting to see what happens to Riri after Bendis leaves. Will the writers and editors that he leaves behind still want to write and promote his original characters when he moves to their competitor?
Will they even be allowed to use them?
This would all make a great comic book documentary someday.
I suppose their future depends on how Bendis negotiated his contract with DC. The news caught everyone off guard, but was Marvel surprised too? Did Bendis told Marvel about the deal, or did it all behind the company’s back? I'm assuming the latter, because to me it seems impossible that such big news wouldn’t have leaked somehow. If that was the case, Miles and Riri will disappear in no time, if Marvel does the same with them as they did with the changes Grant Morrison made to X-Men after he returned to DC.
