King Kirby

August 28, 2014

Today would’ve been Jack Kirby’s 97th birthday, we have Jack to thank for probably the majority of Marvel superheroes you’ve seen on the big screen (plus a hell of a lot you haven’t).

Captain America is Jack’s along with Joe Simon, and with Stan Lee┬áhe created Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Nick Fury, the Avengers, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer, Loki, Galactus, and (a considerably more verbose) Groot. That doesn’t even cover his characters that have appeared on screen, seriously, he helped create a lot of characters.
