Paul Cornell isn't the only Doctor Who creator breaking into comics. Joe Ahearne, who's directed some of the new series' first season, is also breaking in — and bringing the future of super-heroes with him.

Marvel's editor-in-chief Joe Quesada has confirmed rumors that Ahearne — who directed "Bad Wolf," "Father's Day" and other episodes from Doctor Who's Christopher Eccleston season, before writing and directing British exorcism-happy drama Apparitions — will be writing the new series Fantastic Force for the publisher. The series features a group of superheroes from the future led by the son of the Incredible Hulk, as introduced by Wanted writer Mark Millar during his Fantastic Four run; Millar, unsurprisingly, is friends with Ahearne and has spoken many times about his love of Ahearne's work.
