Granberg became the 12th editor of Fantomen in 1973, succeeding Per-Anders Jonsson, and continued until 1987, being succeeded by Mats Jönsson. In 2003 he returned as editor, succeeding Petter Sjölund. He did however remain in charge of the Team Fantomen production between his two periods as an editor, serving as editor-in-chief. In addition, Granberg was the editor for the first 16 issues of Fantomen Krönika and for issue 58.

Phantom work by Ulf Granberg
In addition to the stories listed above, Team Fantomen has also produced some odd stories which for different reasons aren't included in the main list. None of these stories have been translated into English.
- In 1984 Fantomen published "A Secret Life", written by Ulf Granberg (under the pen-name Sprucehill), Idi Kharelli and Th. Pelerin, and with art by Kari Leppänen. This was a parody of the Phantom, lasting five pages.
- In 1986 a story of one page, "Revealing Visit", by Ulf Granberg and Hans Lindahl was published. This was another parody, meant to serve as an introduction to a competition.
- The first ten issues of Fantomen Krönika (published 1993-1995) included a short prologue of one to two pages, written by Ulf Granberg and with art by Hans Lindahl. These stories include: "The Arrival", "The Contact", "The Attack", "The Explanation", "The Short Circuit", "The Reboot", "Disconnected", "The Outbreak", "The Finish" and "The Restart".
