Overview

Marvel Edge was a short-lived lasting from 1995 to 1996, breaking up right before the Onslaught Saga. It was meant to collect all of Marvel's "edgier" titles together under a common banner.

History

Following an inter-office shake-up in 1994, Tom DeFalco was removed as Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics. Rather than name a successor, Marvel instead appointed five "Editors-in-chief," each of whom woud oversee a certain number of titles and, by extension, a certain portion of the marvel universe. This change was reflected externally by collecting all Marvel monthlies into broad groups: the X-Men titles, the Spider-Man titles, and three new imprints. Bob Harras continued to oversee the X-Men titles, Mark Gruenwald helmed the new Marvel Heroes imprint, Bob Budiansky helmed the Spider-Man titles, Carl Potts oversaw the Licensed Books and Marvel Alterniverse imprint, and Bobbie Chase took over the new “Marvel Edge” imprint.

Marvel Edge collected Marvel's "edgier" (more adult) titles, including titles featuring such characters as Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, the Hulk, Nick Fury, and the Punisher. As such, Marvel Edge can be seen as essentially a precursor to Marvel Knights.
