    Short summary describing this person.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Wally Wood was a popular artist during the Golden and Silver Ages of Comics. The original artist on Marvel's Daredevil, he co-created Daredevil's red costume, and mainstay DD villains like Mister Fear, Stilt-Man and Matador. As the artist on DC's All-Star Comics, Wood introduced Power Girl as a member of the Justice Society of America. There is speculation that Wally increased Power Girl's bustline every issue after her initial introduction to see how long before an editor would stop him. This rumor remains unconfirmed.

    Alone and depressed, Wood committed suicide with a revolver in 1981. Marvel Comics collected some of his Tower of Shadows stories and the Doctor Doom stories he illustrated for Astonishing Tales in a hardcover volume, and he was posthumously inducted into the Eisner Awards' Comic Hall of Fame in 1992.
