the black torches


I had to do something different. The monster stories have their limitations — you can just do so many of them. And then it becomes a monster book month after month, so there had to be a switch because the times weren’t exactly conducive to good sales. So I felt the idea was to come up with new stuff all the time — in other words there had to be a blitz. And I came up with this blitz. I came up with The Fantastic Four, I came up with Thor (I knew the Thor legends very well), and the Hulk, the X-Men, and The Avengers. I revived what I could and came up with what I could. I tried to blitz the stands with new stuff. The new stuff seemed to gain momentum.

Happy 100th Birthday, Jack Kirby, and thank you for ushering in the Marvel Age of Comics with your fantastic creations!

Jack Kirby, co-created Captain America, The Fantastic 4, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, The X-Men, The Inhumans, S.H.I.E.L.D, Silver Surfer, Black Panther & The Avengers. Also hated Nazis.
