McNiven first came into prominence after he took over as a penciller of CrossGen's Meridian title following the departure of Josh Middleton.

Later, he gained more fame working for Marvel Comics as the penciller of Marvel Knights 4, Ultimate Secret and New Avengers. He was named in August 2005 as one of Marvel's "Young Guns", a group of artists that, according to Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada, have the qualities that make "a future superstar penciller". Other "Young Guns" include Olivier Coipel, David Finch, Trevor Hairsine, Adi Granov and Jim Cheung McNiven was the penciller of the Marvel mini-series Civil War working with Mark Millar. He followed this by provided the art for the Wolverine storyline "Old Man Logan" and the Icon Comics mini-series Nemesis, both with Millar.[2]

In 2011 Marvel relaunched a new volume of Captain America, with McNiven as artist.[3][4] In 2012 he drew Avengers vs. X-Men #2.

In 2013 he drew the Guardians of the Galaxy ongoing series with writer Brian Michael Bendis. McNiven said, "I've been a huge fan of science fiction for most of my life. You can blame my dad for that. He always had a sci-fi book or three around the house. We both still read and pass each other books we've read. It's a bit of a family tradition now. So when the opportunity to explore the sci-fi areas of the Marvel Universe came my way I jumped at the chance."[5][6] McNiven drew the Uncanny Avengers from issue 14 to issue 17.[7] McNiven was the artist for Marvel Comics' Limited series Death of Wolverine , as well as the artist of The ongoing titles Uncanny Inhumans published in October 2015.
