The Dorian Gray wiki last edited by kelvinator on 10/09/13 04:48PM View full history

Origin

Dorian Gray was a young man obsessed with youth, opulence, and the decadence of late 19th century Victorian era London - driving him to make what he believed was a futile wish, shouting to the sky that he wished to remain young forever and have a painting created by his closed friend, Basil Howard, age in his stead. When his impulse wish was granted, Gray celebrated the positive and cursed the negative consequences.

Character Evolution

Though dead by the end of the Wilde novel, the character Dorian Gray appears later in Witchblade: Shades of Gray, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Marvel Illustrated: The Picture of Dorian, and has been the subject of several film adaptation including an upcoming movie starring Ben Barnes (as Dorian Gray), and Colin Firth.
