Creator profile: Roy Thomas

South Carolina's The State talks with legendary writer and editor Roy Thomas about the creation of Wolverine, Alter Ego magazine, and his lengthy career:
Thomas would create a place for himself in comics history. He had a part in rejuvenating The Avengers series. However his unexplainable passion was war heroes. He helped develop DC’s All-Star Squadron and Marvel’s Invaders, which he described as “sort of the superheroes of World War II.”

“(They) weren’t big sellers” he said, “but I liked them. I did at least 200 to 300 comics of World War II.”
