WEFOUNDUltimate X-Men, Vol. 7 (v. 7)

Ultimate X-Men , a Marvel Comics series, has covered 19 story arcs since the first issue's debut in February 2001. Mark Millar wrote most of the first 33 issues, followed by Brian Michael Bendis for 12 issues, Brian K. Vaughan for 20 issues, and Robert Kirkman for 28 issues. Aron Eli Coleite , known for his work on the television series Heroes , took over the book for the remaining seven issues, concluding with his Requiem story.

Film director Bryan Singer , who directed X-Men and X2: X-Men United , was scheduled to write 12 issues of Ultimate X-Men with Brian K. Vaughan and X2 scripters Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris , [1] but was unable to commit due to working on the Superman Returns film. [ citation needed ]

After Mark Millar's tenure, Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Michael Bendis took over for a year. Bendis was originally slated to write both Ultimate X-Men and Ultimate Spider-Man from their conception, but turned down Ultimate X-Men because of the challenge of writing a team book. [20] He has stated that he was going to plot his story in a more character-driven way–especially concerning Wolverine, who has previously tried to kill his teammate Cyclops. [21]
