Craig Kyle is the creator of Marvel character, X-23 a.k.a. Laura Kinney. He has written stories such as X-23: Innocence Lost, X-23: Target X, X-Force, New X-Men, and Amazing X-Men. Kyle was also the Executive Producer on MCU films Thor, Thor: Dark World and was co-writer of Thor: Ragnarok. He has Executive Producer credits on many animated series including Spectacular Spider-Man, X-Men: Evolution, Wolverine and The X-Men, Hulk VS, Doctor Strange, Planet Hulk, Thor: Tales of Asgard, and Next Avengers. Recently, Kyle was Co-Creator and Co-Showrunner of Pacific Rim: The Black for Legendary Entertainment and Netflix.

Chris Yost began his career in animation and comic books where he wrote for Spider-Man, Batman, the X-Men, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Avengers among others before joining Marvel’s Feature Writers Program in 2009. At Marvel Studios, he worked on the original Thor for director Kenneth Branagh before co-writing the screenplays for Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok. On the TV side, he wrote for and consulted on the first season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian for Lucasfilm and the live action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop for Netflix. Yost is currently working on the upcoming 2D animated series, Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for producer Seth Rogen and a live-action adaptation of his original comic book, Killer of Demons. His next feature is a sci-fi heist movie called How to Steal a Planet. Yost continues to work in comics, having just released Unnatural Order through Vault Comics.

Mike Choi was named one of the 20 best X-Men artists of all time by Kotaku in 2015, and one of the 10 best X-Men artists of all time by Screen Rant in 2021. His work on X-23: Target X in 2006 established the look of the character as she appears today, and his design for the character of Bastion was used in the acclaimed series X-Men ‘97 as the show's main antagonist's climactic final form. He has most recently completed two miniseries for AWA with writer J. Michael Straczynski and is now working on his first creator-owned book, titled Gochugaru.
