Marv’s Early Career

Some argue the relationship between Chris Claremont and the X-Men relates just as well or better to Marv Wolfman and TEEN TITANS. However, the latter’s career got started a good decade earlier.

Don’t get confused, in this Marv Wolfman interview, Marv makes it clear TEEN TITANS never derived inspiration from the X-Men but rather FANTASTIC FOUR comics that Marv previously worked on.

In this Marv Wolfman interview, we discuss his early work with DC Comics in 1968 on BLACKHAWK #242. Marv then discusses working with creator Len Wein. The two co-created the character Jonny Double in 1968’s SHOWCASE #78.
