Matt Softley (in reality Maureen Softley, borrowing her son's name, as it was thought the editor of a boys' comics should have a man's name) was editor at the London office of Marvel UK from late 1974 until late 1975, succeeding Peta Skingley. Neil Tennant replaced her in late 1975 fresh from finishing a Journalism course. She worked on weekly titles including Spider-Man Comics Weekly, Mighty World of Marvel, Savage Sword of Conan, Planet of the Apes and Avengers, supervising the alteration of art and lettering on American reprints for the British market, dealing with correspondence and the creation of UK specific editorial and advertising material.
