ComicsVerse welcomes legendary comics creator Marv Wolfman to our podcast. Marv Wolfman wrote TEEN TITANS, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, SPIDER-WOMAN, and FANTASTIC FOUR among many other titles. He worked for both Marvel and DC Comics in a career that spans more than fifty years. Marv video chats us from the west coast to have a discussion about his career and all the incredible characters he created. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have him in this Marv Wolfman interview podcast!
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.
The Marv Wolfman Interview Turns to Characters Marv Created
Marv later went on to work on comics you may have heard of before. He co-created or created characters like Raven, Cyborg, Nova, Bullseye, Blade, Terrax, Terra, Black Cat, and Starfire among many others!
He re-wrote Spider-Woman’s origin, giving her the “Jessica Drew” identity. He also created a backstory for Donna Troy. In conclusion, this Marv Wolfman interview reveals the story behind what we know — Mr. Wolfman is an epic character creator and storyteller.
