So nothing really changes other than the fact that he gets another title.

It's just like Geoff Johns' position over at DC, he'll have a more direct hand in everything now instead of just being a project advisor like he was prior to this.

Not a big fan of Joe Q, but the guy can market the hell out of properties so it seems like it's the right decision.

No one can't deny his popularity as a creator on Daredevil and Iron Man prior to becoming an EIC. It's just that they add the recent debacle that is "One More Day" to the list...

Anyway, his long-time involvement with everything Marvel is now official. His opposers and haters should realize now that despite their bitching and complaints, Marvel/Walt Disney is supportive of Quesada's management, so deal with it and move on.

Perhaps a case of "Yesterday Marvel comics, today Marvel comics and movies tomorrow... the world!"
