Author has written 14 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.

The world of X-men Supreme has been devastated. Over 300 million people are dead. Millions more are in a state of shock and horror. The Dark Legacy arc may be over, but the destruction it has wrought is on a scale that’s difficult to imagine. When Sinister unleashed his Legacy Virus, he didn’t care how many died. He didn’t care how many suffered. Humans and mutant alike were all equally vulnerable because they all had something he wanted. In the end, the X-men made sure he didn’t get it. But the damage has been done.
As with the previous volumes of the X-men Supreme fanfiction series, I made sure the final arc is a major event with a major impact. Previous arcs like Overlord and Uprising create upheaval the nature of the conflict that the X-men face in their pursuit of Charles Xavier’s dream. That upheaval is usually caused by the actions of their enemies, like Magneto. However, the X-men have never faced upheaval like the kind Sinister unleashed with the Legacy Virus. This goes beyond Charles Xavier’s dream and strikes at the very foundations of the world they try to protect. It ensures the world of X-men Supreme will be very different moving forward for the X-men.
In moving forward, the X-men will have to deal with one of the few major deaths I’ve carried out in this fanfiction series. Back in X-men Supreme Issue 31: Memory Musings, I told the story of John Proudstar’s role in this fanfiction series. I gave him a role far greater than the one he briefly had in the X-men Comics. He wasn’t just another strong mutant who could add muscle to the team. He was the one who trained the X-men and taught them how to fight. In addition, he was Jean Grey’s first lover. His place in the X-men within this fanfiction series is much more personal. That makes his death at the hands of the Legacy Virus in X-men Supreme Issue 124: Dark Legacy Part 4 much more powerful.
Thunderbird joins the over 300 million other deaths that the Legacy Virus has claimed. While the X-men were able to prevent millions more, thanks to the bold and reckless efforts of Charles Xavier, the world is still traumatized. Humans and mutants alike will need time to heal and time to mourn their dead. When tragedies on such a large scale strike, it has a way of making every superficial difference seem more trivial. In some ways it will bring humans and mutants closer together. But in others, it will make them vulnerable for the next upheaval. From Genosha to the White House, everyone is vulnerable. So what kind of world will emerge from the ashes?
That world will start to take shape in the final issue of X-men Supreme Volume 5: Dark Truths. Like Overlord and Uprising before it, the X-men will work with allies like President Kelly, General Grimshaw, and Wanda Maximoff to chart a course forward. At the same time, they’ll have to contend with the losses they’ve suffered. For a brief moment, they’ll stand together to soak in this tragedy. But don’t expect that moment to last long. As always, I’ve prepared a brief preview on this site and an extended preview on the X-men Supreme Official Blog.
I’m determined to end X-men Supreme Volume 5: Dark Truths on a strong note. I’m treating it as another critical turning point in the unfolding story that is X-men Supreme. At the same time, I’m going to leave room to make it the final entry in this fanfiction series. However, I am not currently leaning towards such a course. There’s still more story I want to tell. And if I do decide to continue X-men Supreme, I’ll make it official after the final issue for X-men Supreme Volume 5: Dark Truths is posted. I’m still somewhat disappointed by the lack of feedback, but I’m still encouraged by the extent to which some have followed this fanfiction series and I hope to continue doing so. To all those who want to see more of X-men Supreme, please feel free to contact me at any time. I’m always happy to chat. Until next time, take care and best wishes. Excelsior!
