Michael Choi joined Marvel and penciled Uncanny X-Men from issue #495 to issue #499 with writer Ed Brubaker.

In the April 2007 issue of Wizard Magazine (#186) Choi was named number 10 of the "Hot 10 Artists" for his work on X-23: Target X. Said the magazine, "Choi pulls up the rear with his newly popular, vibrant pencils."

In 2010, Choi provided the illustrations in a pictorial featuring comedic actress Olivia Munn in the April/May 2010 issue of Complex magazine, and on its cover. The pictorial featured Munn interacting with illustrated animals in a forest setting, which were drawn by Choi and colored by Sonia Oback.
