  • I n 1966, John got a call from his old boss, Stan Lee, who was now the senior editor at Marvel Comics. Stan wanted Buscema back. Marvel had a number of successes in recent years:

Fantastic Four—1961 This superhero team featured four humans showered with cosmic rays, which gave them fantastic powers. Leader Reed Richards was “Mr. Fantastic,” able to stretch like a rubber band. His future wife, Sue Storm, was “Invisible Woman.” Johnny Storm could burst into ames and y as “The Human Torch.” Ben Grimm became the rock-like being known as “The Thing.”

Spider-Man—1962

As John felt more comfortable producing comics, he began working on many different books in the Marvel library, including The Incredible Hulk and The X-Men. At rst he worked from a pre-written script, but as he became more comfortable with the characters, he began using what was dubbed as “The Marvel Method.” John would talk to Stan Lee and say, “Stan, I’m ready for a plot. What have you got in mind?” From the basic story outline, John would create the pictures. The words would be placed later. Many of the great Marvel artists worked in this manner, but it denitely required an experienced artist who knew how to blend words and pictures. Since John was now such an artist, his work continued to grow.
