Roger Stern enjoyed well-regarded runs on Amazing Spider-Man, in which he introduced Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau) and the Hobgoblin; Avengers; and Captain America. He launched West Coast Avengers and wrote numerous tie-in miniseries starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. At DC, he relaunched Atom and co-created Starman (Will Payton) before participating in one of comics’ most shocking events: the 1992 “Death of Superman.” He later returned to Marvel to write Amazing Spider-Man and related titles.

Dwayne McDuffie (1962-2011) proved his writing range by covering both serious subjects in Deathlok and comedy in three Damage Control miniseries. He also wrote Captain Marvel (Monica Rambeau) one-shots and backup stories for Avengers titles. At DC, he co-founded Milestone, co-creating Blood Syndicate, Hardware, Icon and Static — the latter of which was adapted for television in the Static Shock animated series, which won an Emmy and a Humanitas Prize in Children’s Animation. He wrote for DC’s animated Justice League and Teen Titans series, as well as for the Justice League of America comic. He returned to Marvel to revive Deathlok/Collins in the Beyond miniseries, which partially carried over to McDuffie’s stint on Fantastic Four. He wrote Acclaim’s X-O Manowar, as well as Harvey’s multi-media adaptations Back to the Future: Forward to the Future and Monster in My Pocket.

John Romita Jr. is a modern-day comic-art master, following in his legendary father’s footsteps. Timeless runs on Iron Man, Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man and Daredevil established him as his own man artistically, and his work on Wolverine and World War Hulk is among the most explosive comic art of the 21st century. In addition to Eternals with writer Neil Gaiman, JRJR teamed with Mark Millar on the creator-owned Kick-Ass, later developed into a blockbuster feature film starring Nicolas Cage. Spidey fans rejoiced at the artist’s return to Amazing Spider-Man with the “Brand New Day” storylines “New Ways To Die” and “Character Assassination.” He later helped relaunch Avengers with writer Brian Michael Bendis and Captain America with Rick Remender, and contributed to the blockbuster crossover Avengers vs. X-Men. For DC Comics, he has drawn big-name characters such as Superman, Batman and the Suicide Squad.

Formerly a regular artist on Solo Avengers, as well as West Coast, Mark Bright is noted for working with writer Christopher Priest on Falcon, Power Man and Iron Fist, Quantum and Woody and other titles. He has also drawn Marvel’s incarnation of G.I. Joe; and several DC flagship characters in Action Comics Weekly, Batman and Green Lantern.
