Author has written 20 stories for X-Men, Justice League, and Parks and Recreation.
Greetings, I am MarvelMaster616. I am an experienced writer who has been writing fanfiction for many years, mostly with comics and cartoons. I'm a lifelong fan of comic books, especially Marvel Comics. I read Spider-Man, Justice League, Punisher, Deadpool, and Witchblade. But my favorite has always been X-men. I have dreams of one day becoming an X-men writer for Marvel. But until then, I will be content to craft an X-project of my own.
This account will be the centerpiece for a new X-men continuity that I have personally put together through years of creative planning. I call it X-men Supreme and the universe number is 1015. This continuity will be handled like any other in that I will update it bi-weekly so every two weeks fans will be treated to a new issues of the unfolding saga. The goal is to structure it like a real comic, only in fanfiction format. But if any fans wish to contribute some art, I'll be more than happy to include it on the series's official website. The layout will be similar to that of the Ultimate Universe in that it puts a different twist on the classic X-men characters, but a great many details and backgrounds will be tweaked. Hopefully, it'll be for the better and fans of these characters will appreciate them as much as I do. Think of it as another alternative to Marvel's ongoing 616, Ultimate (albeit cancelled), and X-men Forever line. Only this one is made a by a dedicated fan with hopes of becoming so much more.
Also, I am setting up a blog to allow readers to interact with me personally. I don't want to be cut off and distant from my readers as some of the Marvel writers tend to be with their material, only coming out for Comic-Cons. If you have any feedback for me, good or bad, please post it in a review, post it on my blog, or contact me on the website. I am open to all kinds of criticism and rest assured I will take it seriously. Feel free to contribute ideas as well. And if someone out there wants to do their own fanfiction of this series, I'd be more than happy to allow that and post those stories on my website. I want to make this as open as possible. I've never done something this big so please bear with me as I embark on this creative endeavor.
As of January 1st 2010, X-men Supreme is up and running. I have finished making my website and the first issue of the first volume is posted. For some quick details about this series and how I'm going about it, please check out the about page on my site.
In addition, I've also created a page of bios for each X-character. While many of you may already be familiar with the characters from the comics, please keep in mind that X-men Supreme is a different universe. Some of the details about these characters are very different and I explain as such on my website. I wouldn't say it is required reading, but it would certainly help to know where some of these characters are coming from. If at any point you have any questions about these characters or the series as a whole, please contact me through my website.

Whenever a major, Earth-shaking event unfolds in the X-men Supreme fanfiction series, I take supreme satisfaction, if that’s not too fitting a word, in how it reshapes the narrative. When I started this fanfiction series, I didn’t just want every issue to involve the X-men fighting Sentinels, Magneto, Mr. Sinister, and men like Robert Kelly. I wanted the story to have a sense of direction. I wanted to do the same world-building that has helped make the X-men comics what they are. Part of that process involves building a story around the aftermath of a major event, which can be satisfying in its own right.
The Crimes Against Inhumanity arc was a huge game changer for X-men Supreme Volume 7: United and Divided. This arc was the culmination of numerous tensions that had been building since X-men Supreme Issue 149: Law Abiding Bind demonstrated the strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities of the Mutant Monitoring Initiative. On paper, Charles Xavier’s intent was good. He wanted the X-men to work alongside President Kelly and General Grimshaw to improve the standing of mutants while also gaining valuable allies. It came with risks, but after the damage the Mutant Liberation Front did in X-men Supreme Volume 6: Liberation Decimation, it was a risk he had to take.
It may have paid off at first in arcs like Drug War and Unholy Man, but Romulus effectively changed the cost structure of the Mutant Monitoring Initiative. In many respects, Crimes Against Inhumanity was a worst-case scenario for both Charles Xavier and X-Force. It was one of those conflicts where everything that could’ve been used against the X-men was thrown at them. The divisions the Mutant Monitoring Initiative had created finally caught up to them. The X-men weren’t in a position to do their job. X-Force didn’t have the resources or manpower to end the conflict sooner. As a result, Romulus did untold damage.
That damage goes beyond the X-men and X-Force, though. Unlike Magneto, he didn’t just target mutants with his ultimate plan. He literally attacked the entire world, striking every major defense system he could. From big national armies to local police forces, he used the legacy of Weapon X to wage a war to end all wars. The fact he came so close to succeeding has left everyone, human and mutant alike, in a state of uncertainty and fear.
The aftermath of every major event usually brings added upheavals. It’s one thing to stop the damage. It’s quite another to adapt to the world that emerges. Charles Xavier must now confront a world where the Mutant Monitoring Initiative was exposed and his X-men were unable to do the job. Cyclops and X-Force have to confront the harsh truths that Romulus exposed in his effort to end all war. In both cases, the X-men Supreme fanfiction series faces a new host of challenges and it’s not going to take long for someone to exploit their vulnerabilities.
That’s exactly what the next couple of issues deal with. Many major events in X-men Supreme, going back to Uprising and Overlord, create a situation in which someone exploits the aftermath. The impact of Crimes Against Inhumanity will be no different and the names of those who do the exploiting should be very familiar. Some are fairly new. Others have done plenty of damage to the X-men in the past. In any case, the aftermath will set the stage for the next major conflict. As always, I’ve prepared a brief preview on this site and an extended preview on the X-men Supreme Official Blog.
This fanfiction series is entering uncharted territory, as it so often does after a major event. Certain characters are going to undergo major changes. I know X-men fans are somewhat sensitive to change, especially given how the X-men comics have handled them poorly in the past. I hope to avoid those mistakes with this fanfiction series, but the aftermath of an event like Crimes Against Inhumanity will bring more than a few big moments.
That’s why it’s so critical that I continue getting feedback for this and the rest of this fanfiction series. Please, in the interest of making X-men Supreme as awesome as it can be, take the time to review. Either contact me directly or send post your comments directly in the issue. Either way is fine and I’m always happy to chat. Until next time, take care and best wishes. Xcelsior!
