He co-created such memorable characters as the Fantastic Four (1961), the Hulk (1962), Doctor Doom (1962), Spider-Man (1962), Thor (1962), Ant-Man (1962), Iron Man (1963), Nick Fury (1963), Doctor Strange (1963), the Avengers (1963), the X-Men (1963), Daredevil (1964), Galactus (1966), Silver Surfer (1966), Black Panther (1966), the Falcon (1969) and She-Hulk (1980).

Dish of the Day #2519: We Like Guys Who Vote


A few thoughts on the election results . . .

I'm very disappointed that Beto O'Rourke (Texas) lost and Ted Cruz was re-elected (but I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Beto). I'm also sad that Andrew Gillum (Florida) and Stacey Abrams (Georgia) did not win - yet (apparently there are still ballots to be counted in both states).

I'm thrilled (and greatly relieved) that the Democrats now control the House and that Scott Walker (Wisconsin) and Kris Kobach (Kansas) lost.

For the most part, it was a pretty good night to be a Democrat. Here's hoping I feel the same way two years from now.

Today's Dish is Jake Parrish.
