Bio:
In 1991 Marvel hired Madureira, a 16-year-old student at the High School of Art and Design, as an intern. His first published work was an eight-page story for the anthology series Marvel Comics Presents, starring Northstar.

In the next few years, Madureira completed various assignments for Marvel's sprawling X-Men franchise. He became the regular penciler on Uncanny X-Men in 1994 and soon rose to become one of the most popular artists in the industry. As the Uncanny X-Men artist, Madureira designed the "Age of Apocalypse" uniforms, new manga-inspired costumes for the regular title (after Onslaught), as well as the Avengers' brief new designs after The Crossing.

He left Uncanny X-Men in 1997 to work on his own series Battle Chasers for Wildstorm Comics' creator-owned Cliffhanger imprint (before it was sold to DC Comics). Nine issues of the constantly-behind-schedule comic were released. The tenth issue was announced but never published.

Madureira chose to abandon its publication, as it was to be the first part of a new storyline which he would not have been able to finish in light of other work to which he had committed.

Joe then went on to work in the video game industry. Starting with the start-up company Tri-Lunar, he created concept art on a game called Dragonkind which was canceled when Tri-Lunar went out of business.

He then went to work for Realm Interactive, another start-up company, on Trade Wars: Dark Millennium. When Realm Interactive was acquired by NCsoft, he continued to contribute to the game as it evolved into Exarch, and was eventually released as Dungeon Runners. During this time, he would occasionally contribute cover artwork for gaming magazines and comic books.

Madureira returned to the comic book industry as the artist on Marvel's The Ultimates 3, with writer Jeph Loeb.

In late July 2007, the cover done by Joe Mad was featured on IGN.

After leaving NCsoft, Madureira founded Vigil Games with several other ex-NCsoft employees. Vigil was acquired by THQ in March 2006.
