The year 2000 saw Quitely and Morrison collaborate again, on JLA:Earth 2. Once again, the graphic novel was met with a hugely positive critical response, and later that year Quitely took over from Bryan Hitch as artist on The Authority, with Mark Millar as writer.

This run proved to be highly controversial, and Quitely's art suffered censorship by DC due mainly to the violent content of Millar's stories.

Quitely abruptly and controversially left The Authority, however, after receiving an offer from Marvel Comics to draw New X-Men, the lure of such a high-profile title and the chance to again team up with Grant Morrison too strong to resist. Marvel Comics is an American comic book company owned by Marvel Publishing Inc New X-Men refers to two Superhero Comic books published by Marvel Comics within the X-Men franchise The pair's first issue saw them dispense with many of the trappings the title was associated with, such as the colourful spandex costumes, and replace them with a more contemporary look and feel. Although provoking an initially hostile response from a section of X-Men fans, the run sold extremely well and brought the title the sort of critical acclaim it had not had for many years. However, Quitely's pace again drew criticism, as a title as high-profile as X-Men could not afford to delay issues while waiting for him to finish, and the three-year run was therefore characterised by the use of many fill-in artists. Despite this, Quitely also managed to find time to illustrate a Neil Gaiman-written story for the hardcover graphic novel, Sandman: Endless Nights.
