IMDb profile

Mark Verheiden is a respected and prolific television, movie, and comic book writer. He joined the production team and writing staff of the Re-imagined Series with the second season, initially as a consulting producer and then becoming a co-executive producer mid-way through the season. He continues to serve as a co-executive producer and writer as of the fourth season.

In addition to working on the Re-imagined Series, Verheiden has also contributed TV scripts for The Mask, Timecop, and Smallville television series.

His film work includes writing the story on which the 1994 The Mask film starring Jim Carrey was based, and the script for the original 1993 Timecop feature film starring Jean Claude Van Damme. [1]

Verheiden’s comic-book writings include the Predator, Aliens and American series for Dark Horse Comics, [2] as well as Superman and Smallville monthly series for DC Comics. As of Spring 2006, he took over the reins of writing the Superman/Batman monthlies. [3]

Interestingly, it was probably his work on the Predator and Aliens comics that got a character (played by Tommy Flanagan) named after him in the 2004 feature film, Alien vs. Predator.

Verheiden has reportedly written a horror comedy film as a vehicle for actor Bruce Campbell entitled My Name is Bruce, which is currently in pre-production and scheduled for release in 2007. [4]

As of Summer 2008, Verheiden has joined the staff of Heroes, where he will work part-time as a consulting producer/writer from the second half of the show's third season on. Meanwhile he is also writing a feature film. [5]
