Early life[edit]

His writing experiences also include the comic books Aquaman for DC Comics, Wolverine and The Punisher for Marvel, and scripts for the Rare Game Perfect Dark Zero. He wrote Blade for 12 issues with artist Howard Chaykin.

In 2006, Guggenheim took over the writing of The Flash.[2] Guggenheim's run concluded with the death of the fourth Flash, Bart Allen.

In 2007, Guggenheim became one of the rotating team of writers on The Amazing Spider-Man. His first story appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #549. He also launched a creator-owned comic, Resurrection, for Oni Press.

He wrote the comic book Young X-Men for Marvel which was launched in April 2008, and in 2008 was working on a comic with Hugh Jackman and Virgin Comics, Nowhere Man,[3] and on Super Zombies for Dynamite Entertainment[4] and Stephen King.[5]

He wrote the script for the 2009 video game X-Men Origins: Wolverine, developed by Raven Software, a video game based on the film of the same name.
