Marcus is a "cool" guy in P.S. 38 . He has a posse that Nate was once in. Before that, Nate had always tried to be as "cool" as Marcus. When Nate left the posse, Marcus beat up Nate, which was Teddy and Francis' entertainment. Marcus used to be envied, but now people seem to loathe him. He is a very big bully as of now in Big Nate.
