The following year, Marz wrote the DC/Marvel: All Access limited series which was an intercompany crossover between DC and Marvel characters.
While writing Green Lantern, Marz wrote the "Emerald Twilight" storyline, in which the character of Hal Jordan, stricken with grief, became a mass murderer, leading to the destruction of the Green Lantern Corps, and Kyle Rayner being chosen at random as the last Green Lantern.

Marz wrote Moonstone Books' 2006 annual featuring The Phantom, and was responsible for getting writers Chuck Dixon, Mike Bullock, Tony Bedard, and Rafael Nieves to participate with chapters for the book.
