"The Laborer is worthy of his hire."
Luke 10:7



Roy Thomas:

It's a bit hard to believe, when I look back at all the comicbook characters I was fortunate enough to get to co-create or at least co-develop.  But I'd grown up in smalltown Missouri loving comics, so when I got a chance to work in the field in 1965, at the ripe old age of 24, I grabbed it, and soon would be working for Marvel Comics and Stan Lee as his editorial assistant and "staff writer."  I suppose Banshee was the first super-type I dreamed up, although Stan wouldn't let the character be a woman, as he should have been.  I wasn't wild about the idea of making up heroes for Marvel, since I wouldn't own any part of them or be able to control their destinies past a certain point, but I did it anyway in the sense of heroes like Wolverine, Iron Fist, Warlock, the (second) Vision, Morbius, Black Knight, Son of Satan, et al.  Some of them I wrote... others I never (or virtually never) scripted but turned over immediately to other talented people to scribe, and they almost always did me proud.

Of course, I co-created some characters for DC, too, in the 1980s... but my Marvel list is far more extensive, since it involves the period from 1965 to 1980, and then again from the latter 1980s through at least the tail end of the 20th century.  Actually, I just made up a few characters for my story in Marvel's SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN #10-11 released in late 2019, and they are included here.  In other fields, Gerry Conway and I created the black Amazon Zula for the film that became "Conan the Destroyer" (even suggesting Grace Jones for the part, which worked out well)... and maybe I made up one or two for TV animation, as well... but I think I gave my best effort to the comics.  Naturally, John Cimino and I know we probably forgot somebody-or-other that will later occur to us (or to someone else who sees the lists),  and we hope and trust people will let us know if they run across some character or concept that I may have played a part in and simply forgot to list.  I don't want to take any credit away from anyone who deserves it--after all, I nearly always co-created characters with an artist at the very least, since the only characters I ever drew the first picture of as well as wrote were Hyperion, Nighthawk, Dr. Spectrum, and the Whizzer (of the Squadron Sinister/Supreme), 3D Man, and Union Jack (of THE INVADERS), plus audio-describes images of Man-Ape and Red Wolf and a few others that will be listed... but hopefully those folks have their own lists, which I applaud, or this database will encourage them to do so, because the field of comicbook history will be the richer for it.

Finally, I would just like everyone to know that, although I was consulted on this work and made attempts to verify its various entries, all the real work was done by my manager and friend, John Cimino... whose brainstorm this database was.  To say that I'm floored by the work that he put into it would be an understatement; may it lead to many more databases showcasing the talents of my peers.  And meanwhile--dare I say it?--I hope you'll enjoy going over it, since enjoyment is, above everything else, what comics is all about.

One of Roy's greatest achievements in comics wasn't creating a particular character or storyline, it was saving Stan Lee from getting bonked on the head by the Impossible Man back in FANTASTIC FOUR #176 (1976)

John Cimino:
 
As Roy stated above; he didn't like to create comicbook characters because he knew he wouldn't be able to own them.  Well, maybe he should've practiced what he preached because own them or not, Roy Thomas has indeed created or I should say co-created a bunch of comicbook characters (and when we add in all the historical characters he revamped into comicbook form the number gets even more ridiculous).  One thing I can say for certain is that there are probably only a handful of creators in the history of comics that have co-created more (even less if you want to talk about characters known all over the world that have shaped pop culture and brings in billions to Hollywood).  How many in total, we may never know the answer for certain, but from the size of this database--IT'S A HELLUVA LOT!!! 

Yup, this thing is really BIG and was a monumental task to compile.  Roy and I both buckled down and did months of research; we went over Roy's "official" lists, had long phone/email conversations to gather information, dug through all our comics, got some assistance from others including collaborator Jean-Marc Lofficier and scoured the internet so many times we lost count.  What we discovered was there were so many minor and insignificant background characters that didn't have big roles in the stories or just had brief appearances, and there were also a bunch of revamped or alternate-reality versions of characters in stories from NOT BRAND ECHH, WHAT IF, CONAN, pulps, novels, literature and the like.  Same can be said about certain paraphernalia or vehicles Roy co-created that were so minuscule, they found their way into comicbook obscurity.  Things could've gotten pretty monotonous, but we like to be as complete as we can so we tried to get in the more important ones (can anyone say Adam Klink?), especially if someone or something had a few recurring roles or used by other writers in later years.  Hey, Roy has been writing comics waaay longer than I've been alive so there's literally thousands of pages of secondary characters and devices he put into his stories, so we're sorry if  "Rocky," "Sally," "Mr. Calkin," "The Absorbo-Belt" and all the others don't make it in this database because we can only do so much.  Hopefully, if anyone locates a "Roy Thomas co-creation" we didn't list and thinks it should be, let us know and we'll add it.  Roy will even give you a nice shout out online on The Roy Thomas Appreciation Board on Facebook!  So, if you're not already a member, join today.

We think you'll enjoy the fruits of our labor with these comprehensive lists we put into three categories: MARVEL COMICS (split into 2 parts), DC COMICS, and MISCELLANEOUS.  Included with each entry is a picture, listing of first comicbook appearance, who Roy co-created the concept with and any background information he wanted include.  Hopefully all those mistakes on the internet about who created what (that drives Roy and I both crazy) can be put to rest.  We can't save everything in the comicbook world from wannabe historian trolls and fanboy mistakes but when it comes to Roy Thomas, at least we can do our part to give you the correct information straight from the source (so for crying out loud, Roy had nothing to do with the creation of Misty Knight).  But we're not perfect either, so if you spot a mistake we made or have a question, let us know.  This is an ever-evolving database and we appreciate when fans give us more input to expand it further.

In ending, Roy and I hope you'll enjoy this project we put our "blood, sweat and tears" into (and yes, I cried a bunch of tears).  Through all the research and rewrites, I'm honestly very happy with the end result.  And the best part is, despite how much information is jam-packed into this thing, I made it really easy to understand and navigate through, so you can just sit back and enjoy the experience.  So here's to all the readers, researchers and fans; a fun and accurate resource on the comicbook magic of "Rascally" Roy Thomas, one of the greatest writer/creators of popular fiction.

MARVEL COMICS 
CHARACTERS, CONCEPTS AND CREATIONS
PART 1

A

 Adamantium

Avengers #66 (1969)
co-created with Barry Windsor-Smith

I created and named "Adamantium" because I needed a good name for the most powerful, harmproof metal possible in that AVENGERS issue.  I chose the name because of the use of the adjective "adamantine" which I remembered from a book I had (and still have) collecting the plays of the Greek tragedian Aeschylus...  it's used on the first page or so of Richmond Lattimore's translation (late 50s or early 60s) of "Prometheus Bound."  Incidentally, from that same page(s) and play I took the names Kratos and Bia (Force and Might, in some translations), which are the names of the two gods/whatever that, in Zeus' name, chain Prometheus to a mountaintop, and I used that for characters that first appeared in AVENGERS #50 (you can look for them in this database).  I usually have felt that my names for things were inferior to the ones Stan Lee and/or Jack Kirby came up with, but I do think "Adamantium" is even better than "Vibranium"... though both are fine. 


Achilles of Phthia

Mighty Thor Annual #8 (1979)
co-created with John Buscema 
(based on character from the Iliad)


Adam II

What If #4 (1977)

Agent Axis



Hiroyuki Kanegawa
Aldo Malvagio
Berthold Volker

Invaders Annual #1 (1977)
co-created with Frank Robbins

I used the name "Agent Axis" because it was mentioned by Captain America in TALES OF SUSPENSE #82 (1966).  While Stan Lee wrote that dialogue, I suspect that artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby had accidentally written it in his margin notes and Stan just took it from there.

Avengers Quinjet


Avengers #61 (1969)
co-created with John Buscema

While writing fairly early issues of THE AVENGERS, it occurred to me that the group needed a more distinctive type of aircraft.  There was a thing called the twinjet, so I made up the quinjet, which had five rockets.

co-created with Frank Robbins

***character created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby


****Invaders #1 (1993)
public domain character
co-created with Dave Hoover
(Team first appearance)

I originally wanted to say that several of Timely's minor heroes had "gone bad" and joined the Axis, since some people claimed that all super-heroes were fascists anyway.  Marvel nixed that idea, and I understand their point... so I grabbed the Human Meteor from Harvey's old CHAMP/CHAMPION COMICS, Spider-Queen from Fox's EAGLE COMICS created by Elsa Lesau, Strong Man from Tem/Holyoke's CRASH COMICS, Volton from Holyoke's CAT-MAN COMICS created by Irwin Hasen, and changed Ace's Dr. Nemesis from LIGHTNING COMICS & SUPER-MYSTERY COMICS to Dr. Death (I think there was already a Dr. Nemesis somewhere, maybe even at Marvel).

Fantastic Four #164 (1975)
 co-created with George Perez
(rechristened character named "Marvel Boy," first appeared in MARVEL BOY #1 (1950) created by Stan Lee and Russ Heath)

I don't think we know that Stan co-created Marvel Boy, though he was the editor.  Still, as editor, he--or for that matter Martin Goodman--probably came up with the name and vague concept.

Len Wein did the majority of the plotting on the Brother Voodoo origin, so Damballah was just a god-name that he looked up and put in the story.

Defenders (Team)

Marvel Feature #1 (1971)
co-created with Stan Lee and Ross Andru

I had done a two-issue story in SUB-MARINER which teamed up Namor (sea), Silver Surfer (air), and Hulk (land) as "Titans Three"--not particularly with the idea that they would become a regular team, but of course if those issue sold well (and they did), that wasn't impossible.  Stan Lee liked the idea and the sales and decided they should become a new team, which he christened "The Defenders," no doubt remembering the popular but defunct TV show of that name.  But, since he wanted to write all Surfer stories himself, he insisted I replace Surfer with Dr. Strange in the new book.  This turned out to work well, as he became the de facto "leader" (to the extent that non-group grouping ever had one) of two characters neither of whom would ever have willingly followed anybody.  It was Steve Englehart soon who, whether directly or through me, persuaded Stan to let him bring Surfer into the team (as Stan became increasingly reconciled to the fact that he wasn't going to be able to write a revived SILVER SURFER mag), and soon added a new/third version of the Valkyrie character John Buscema and I had introduced.

With Jack Katz and Marie Severin as pencilers, the Stalker doesn't enter till the last part of the story and so was never drawn by Katz, I don't think, but only by Marie first.

Giant-Size Invaders #1 (1975)
co-created with Stan Lee and Frank Robbins

As soon as I left being editor-in-chief and needed additional comics to write, I went looking for a way to write major super-heroes without getting involved in current continuity, since I would be my own editor and didn't especially want to coordinate much with other writers.  Writing stories set in WWII (as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had once set Captain America stories) was that chance.  Writing Captain America, Sub-Mariner, and (the original) Human Torch gave me three recognizable characters to hang that comic on; I knew I could bring in other vintage characters (or make up new ones, like Union Jack) as I went along.  Since Stan had once considered doing a comic titled THE INVADERS co-starring the Hulk and Sub-Mariner (after he and Marie Severin did TALES TO ASTONISH #100), I pitched the WWII/"Big Three" concept with that name, knowing that Stan wouldn't go for "All Winners Squad" as too corny.  Stan said, "I like the name"--probably not remembering that, half a dozen years earlier, he had proposed it himself as a title.  And so the concept was born, giving me a chance to use my interest in WWII (especially the U.S. Home Front, but soon abroad as well) in a comic.  I had Winston Churchill name the group, since he would be more interested in having the Invaders actually invade something--namely, Hitler's Fortress Europe.

It was, perhaps, the first all-female grouping of super-heroines, composed of the Scarlet Witch, the Wasp, Medusa, Black Widow, and Valkyrie--even if that (first) Valkyrie turned out to be Thor's old foe the Enchantress in disguise.  She got them together to defeat the Avengers, but it was a very temporary victory.  Too bad I didn't get the Liberators (dropping that "Lady" bit) together again! Luckily, they reformed with a few new members in the modern age.

The original (Western) Ghost Rider was a 1950s character co-created by Ray Krank and Dick Ayers for the Magazine Enterprises company.  Stan Lee liked the concept, so Marvel picked it up in 1967 as an "abandoned trademark," and I got myself assigned to write it.  However, Stan quickly changed his mind and decided he didn't want me "wasting my time" on a Western comic, so we assigned Gary Friedrich to do the actual script, though we plotted that first story together.  It was only later that he became called, in reprints, Night Rider and/or Phantom Rider.
