    Short summary describing this person.

    More than any other editor, Julie Schwartz helped shape the face of the comic-book medium as we know it today. Hired as a DC editor in 1944, Schwartz's inventive mind and dedication to the craft of storytelling soon made him a legend in his own right. His true legacy, however, came to flower in the 1950s and early 1960s, when together with Fox, John Broome, Carmine Infantino and others, he revived and revitalized the all but abandoned super-hero genre, transforming such nearly forgotten heroes as the Flash and Green Lantern into the super-stars that formed the Justice League. Without that timely infusion of energy, comics books might well have gone the way of the penny postcard, the automat and the drive-in movie - faded icons of a bygone era.
