Marvel Comics is making the most of the FanExpo Canada convention in Toronto this weekend, releasing the following teaser announcing the return of Brian Wood to the publisher for a 2012 project which may involve a certain Canadian mutant.

Wood, a DC Comics exclusive creator for the past several years, recently found himself on the open market once again following the announcement of the conclusion of his Vertigo title "DMZ" and the cancellation of "Northlanders."

In a recent interview with CBR, Wood discussed his post-DC career saying, "As my two big Vertigo books come to an end, I feel like I accomplished something, that I proved something about being a creator-owned writer. If only to myself, and for myself, I proved that I could do it, I could build a career from scratch doing virtually only creator-owned work, support myself, my family, buy a house, etc, etc. And having done that I now feel like I can relax a bit and take on some work for hire projects and not feel that my identity as a creator-owned guy is compromised. During my exclusive time at DC I produced twenty-two volumes of creator-owned work, something to be proud of."
