Marvel has issued a statement to CBR on this morning's surprise news that Brian Michael Bendis has left the publisher after more than 17 years to sign exclusively with DC Comics.

Photo The writer Brian Michael Bendis created Miles Morales, a black Hispanic teenager, who became Spider-Man in 2011. And now he's jumped ship to DC.

Announced via DC's social media channels earlier today, the move will see Bendis write exclusively for the Burbank company for a "multiyear, multi-faceted deal". The writer first made his name as a writer of crime comics (and if you haven't read Jinx, Goldfish, or Torso, you're missing out) and has always excelled when telling street level rather than world-shaking stories. "This is real", Mr. Bendis wrote on Twitter.

Bendis confirmed the news shortly after, saying "change is good". I am bursting with ideas and inspiration. A Marvel spokesperson thanked Bendis for his tenure with the company and wished him luck with his future projects. "Details to come! Stay tuned!" he continued.

Bendis is the recipient of multiple Eisner Awards and began his work at Marvel in 2000 with his popular work on Ultimate Spider-Man which helped Marvel launch, the recently defunct "Ultimate" universe.

Bendis has been writing for Marverl for nearly 18 years, with titles like Ultimate Spider-Man, House of M, Daredevil, and Secret Invasion.

Now, fans who have asked "What if?" questions about seeing Bendis work on DC's iconic characters will get the chance to see them answered.

Bendis, now of Portland, Ore., has been Marvel's top writer for more than a decade with stints on nearly every major series including "The Avengers", "Spider-Man", "Iron Man", "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Defenders" to name a few.
