    Happy Birthday to the late GREAT William Blake "Bill" Everett!!!

    Today is the 99th birthday of the late GREAT William Blake "Bill" Everett!

    Bill Everett (center) and two of his creations, the Sub-Mariner (from 1954’s The Human Torch #38) and Daredevil (from 1964’s Daredevil #1).


    When and What He Did at Timely/Atlas/Marvel: Writer and artist off and on from 1939 until 1973.

    Marvel-ous Accomplishments: He’s partially responsible for birthing the Marvel Universe with the creation of Namor, the Sub-Mariner, who appeared in 1939’s Marvel Comics #1, along with the Human Torch (an android that predated the Fantastic Four member of the same name by more than two decades). Namor and the Torch—created by writer-artist Carl Burgos—are considered Marvel’s first superheroes and still play significant roles in the publisher’s comics (a Sub-Mariner movie has been in various stages of development since the late 1990s). Over the years, Everett continued to work on different titles for Timely/Atlas/Marvel, even helping to create Daredevil in the 1960s and draw that character’s first issue.

    Peace to Bill Everett, simply one of the greatest
    What we used to call life has very little worth these days. Welcome to the very edge.

    100th birthday!!!

    So a few months older than The King Jack. 1917 was THE year that gave Marvel its true originators.

    Let's celebrate! (Marvel should too btw...)
