Mark Millar is a Scottish comic book writer, best known for his work on The Authority, The Ultimates, Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Civil War, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Wanted, Chrononauts, Superior and Kick-Ass, the latter seven of which have been, or will be, adapted into feature films.
His DC Comics work includes the seminal Superman: Red Son. At Marvel Comics he created The Ultimates, selected by Time magazine as the comic book of the decade, and described by screenwriter Zak Penn as his major inspiration for The Avengers movie. Millar also created Wolverine: Old Man Logan and Civil War, Marvel's two biggest-selling graphic novels. Civil War was the basis of the Captain America: Civil War film and Old Man Logan was the inspiration for Fox's Logan film.
Millar has been an executive producer on all his films, and for four years worked as a creative consultant to Fox Studios on their Marvel slate of films. In 2017, Netflix bought Millarworld, which Millar and his wife Lucy will continue to run to publish new comics and adapt them for other media.
