This was in the paper last month; I forgot til now to share it!! (and get that paper off my desk and recycled!!)

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.

Very nice Jimmy!  Love that Quasar is from your town!

“If I could go back in time and like tell 11 year old me that like not only do you get to go to Comic Con but you go every year.  So much so that you get greeted by Stan Lee when you show up.  And 11 year old me would be like - How did we get so fat?”- Kevin Smith

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

Avatar mash-up is from Ross Pearsall... and of course those that own the original characters Smiley
