Missouri, the Mighty Marvel Way
As a native of Missouri, I wanted to pay homage to the Show-Me State with a list of Marvel characters and creators from this hive of scum and villainy. I was surprised at some of the legendary names that were born here, like Roy Thomas and Steve Gerber. Ahem! Sorry for the spoilers. Read on, and try not to think about Missouri's mediocre sportsball teams or that Rush Limbaugh and Harry Truman called the state home (unless you're fans). Don't be surprised at the small number of characters; Missouri didn't even rate a team during the Fifty State Initiative. If you think of or no of any other Marvel Missourians, feel free to suggest them.
