"There's a lot of brainpower here, so it was like 'let's put them to work'," Bendis told SFX. "That's why we've such a strong hit ratio and it's why we're light years ahead of where Warner Bros is right now.

"They should do the same thing with Geoff Johns and their other guys. They might be in better shape if they did that. Fox have hired Mark Millar to do the same thing for them on X-Men and Fantastic Four. It works, so that's exactly what you should do."

He also defended Marvel Studios' forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which will arrive in the same year as Disney's Star Wars Episode 7.

"We first started talking about doing this years ago when it looked like there weren't going to be any more Star Wars films," he said. "It just shows that there must be something in the air. It's one of those zeitgeist moments when everyone is thinking about the same thing.

"Marvel is thinking about how to make their space epic work and here comes the greatest space epic ever, and from the same company. It'll be fun!"
