Biography

Scottish comic book writer and publisher, known for his work on The Authority (2000-2001), The Ultimates (2002-2007, 2009-2011), Marvel Knights Spider-Man (2004+), Ultimate Fantastic Four (2004+), Civil War (2006-2007), Kingsman: The Secret Service (2012), Wanted (2003-2004), Chrononauts (2015), Superior (2010) and Kick-Ass (2008+), the latter seven of which have been, or are planned to be, adapted into feature films.

His DC Comics work includes Superman: Red Son (2003). 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 a major inspiration for 2012 film The Avengers. Millar also created Wolverine: Old Man Logan (2008) and Civil War, two of Marvel's biggest-selling graphic novels; the Civil War crossover storyline was the basis for the 2016 Captain America: Civil War film and Old Man Logan was the inspiration for Fox's 2017 Logan film.

Millar has been an executive producer on all of his films, and for four years worked as a creative consultant to Fox Studios on their Marvel slate of films. In 2017, Netflix bought Millar's comic line, Millarworld, which Millar and his wife Lucy will continue to run; publishing new comics and adapting them for other media.

Sy Scholfield quotes Millar on Twitter, "I was a Christmas Eve 9pm baby" [1]; "This was live on on ITV the hour I was born, I think - 9pm on Christmas Eve" [2], commenting on an embedded tweet, "Your Daily Dracula - Peter Butterworth, Carry On Christmas (1969)" [3]; "I was born in Thornton St. Know the Gribbens well. Is your Aunt and Uncle Jamie and Marjorie?" [4].

Previously, on 20 December 2017, he tweeted, "I’ve always felt a bond with Milliband Jr, he and I born the exact same hour of Christmas Eve 1969. I’m like his non CIA backed brother" [5]. However, Miliband was born at 2pm according to his biography [6].
