Quasar (Don Glut, Roy Thomas and John Buscema); Wendell Vaughn, Born in Fond du Lac! (my stomping grounds), moved to Oshkosh. Marvel

Crossfire (Steven Grant & Jim Craig); CIA interrogation expert William Cross born in Madison (a foe to Hawkeye once). Marvel

Sidewinder (Mark Gruenwald & Ralph Macchio); Seth Voekler, economics professor from Kenosha, started the Serpent Society.

**Also, Mark Gruenwald graduated college from UW-Oshkosh, where I got my art degree.

That's cool.

Man, The Badger  Smiley by Mike Baron, also a state native, yeah? From Madison. I loved the idea of the book. It was okay at times, but could've been soo much more
