Professional History

In 2001 Morrison left DC to take over Marvel's flagship comic which he retitled New X Men, rebooting the franchise in the process. Morrison's stint on X-Men is considered one of his more controversial runs, as he radically altered many aspects of the book. He introduced many new concepts including the Weapon Plus program, Fantomex, secondary mutations, the drug kick, and portrayed Magneto as a senile genocidal madman. Morrison ended many long established X-Men tropes, including disposing with their superhero costumes, ending the marriage of Scott Summers and Jean Grey by involving Cyclops in a psychic affair with The White Queen, and once again killing Jean Grey, this time by giving her a massive, catastrophic stroke. Despite all the changes, the series was still well received.
