His first name is Joseph and friends call him Joe, but he has stated that "Joe Straczynski" is a name that would "frighten cats." Professionally, he goes by J. Michael so as to allow people to work up to the "Straczynski." First word: one letter, easy; second word: Michael, two syllables but familiar enough; then...the leap. Fans generally know and refer to him just by his initials, which is how he signs his emails and Usenet posts.

posts. For the record, his last name is supposed to be pronounced ''Stra-TCH-i-nsky'', although it should be noted that his original Polish family name, Straczyński, used to be spelled with an "ń" rather than "n", thus producing a sound slowly related to that of "ñ" (as in ''Espa'''ñ'''ol'').

He then started writing for comic books, and has had somewhat more success, most notably ''ComicBook/BulletPoints'', [[ComicBook/JMSSpiderMan his run on]] ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' (which included the famous 9/11 issue and ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''), ''ComicBook/MidnightNation'', ''ComicBook/RisingStars'', ''ComicBook/SilverSurfer: Requiem'', ''SupremePower'', as well as a return to ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' for Dynamite Comics. More recently, he wrote the screenplay for the Creator/ClintEastwood-directed, Creator/AngelinaJolie-starring ''Film/{{Changeling}}'', and his current projects include writing a script for a Literature/{{Lensman}} movie, the remake of ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet'', and at least one pass at a ''Film/WorldWarZ'' treatment. He handled a revival of one of Marvel's primary series, ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'', as a lead-in to the next CrisisCrossover. He even got to write for the ''Film/{{Thor}}'' movie, even managing a cameo (he's the first guy to find Mjolnir and try to lift it). Truly a PromotedFanboy. He also wrote ''Film/UnderworldAwakening'', the fourth installment of that series. (He also wrote an episode of the ''Series/LogansRun'' TV series, but let's not talk about that.)

He is currently writing the ''ComicBook/SupermanEarthOne'' graphic novels for DC Comics, as well as a number of creator-owned comics under the "Joe's Comics" banner for Image Comics. He previously had a short run in the ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comic book as writer of the story arc ''ComicBook/SupermanGrounded''. However, he stopped working on the book in order to write the ''Superman: Earth One'' books. Since then, Chris Roberson completed the arc. He co-created and co-wrote Creator/{{Netflix}}'s upcoming ''Series/{{Sense8}}'' with [[Film/TheMatrix the Wachowskis]].
