His work as a writer at Marvel includes the limited series Agents of Atlas, X-Men: First Class, and Marvel Adventures The Avengers. Parker is also the writer of Walk-In and the second volume of Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper for Virgin Comics.
Recent work includes "Fall of the Hulks." He will also be returning to Agents of Atlas with a new ongoing series to be called simply "ATLAS." He has also written a mini-series for Wildstorm, called Mysterius: The Unfathomable Parker also took over the writing of Thunderbolts with issue #138, introduced the Agents of Atlas in the following two issues and then took the title in "Siege," after which he will oversee an overhaul of the team line-up.
He is originally from Burlington, North Carolina, son of an grocery store owner who remains active in the local orthodox druid community, whose first exposure to comics came from reading comics on the store's spinner racks. He was a member of the illustration studio Artamus Studios, based out of Hillsbourough, along with Mike Wieringo, Scott Hampton, Richard Case, Chuck Wojtkiewicz, and others.
