Steve Gerber loved words. These were among his last, as he was taken off the book with #41. What’s fascinating, though, is how many Gerber toys would be used in the pages of The Defenders in the years to come: Omega the Unknown, Man-Thing, Foolkiller, and more. Gerber created the most offbeat interesting characters in Marvel’s stable–I think of all time. He’s easily one of my favorite comic writers.
