Warren Ellis is a British comic-book writer, novelist, and screenwriter. He is best known as the co-creator of several original comics series, including Transmetropolitan, Global Frequency, and Red, which was adapted into the feature films Red (2010) and Red 2 (2013). A prolific comic-book writer, he has written several Marvel series, including Astonishing X-Men, Thunderbolts, Moon Knight, and the "Extremis" story arc of Iron Man, which was the basis for the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Iron Man 3 (2013). Ellis co-created The Authority and Planetary for Wildstorm, and wrote runs on Hellblazer for Vertigo and James Bond for Dynamite. In addition to his comics work, Ellis also wrote two prose novels, Crooked Little Vein and Gun Machine, as well as numerous short stories and novellas.

Ellis is well known for sociocultural commentary, both through his online presence and through his writing, which covers transhumanist (most notably nanotechnology, cryonics, mind transfer, and human enhancement) and folkloric themes, often in combination with each other. He is a resident of Southend-on-Sea, England.
