Jim Shooter

Appearing 3

I did my first professional comics work at the age of thirteen, selling a Legion of Super-Heroes story to DC Comics and going on to write Superboy, The Legion of Super-Heroes, Superman and other titles. In 1978, I accepted the position of Editor in Chief of Marvel Comics under the condition that I would be allowed to improve things for Marvel’s creators. I introduced royalties and a spectrum of other incentives, rights and benefits, attracting a Who’s Who of talent. Later, I founded VALIANT, DEFIANT and Broadway Comics and was the principal creator of their characters and universes. Today, I’m the Editor in Chief of Illustrated Media, a custom comics company.
