Thad Boyd On The Comics-Makers That Created The Avengers
posted May 14, 2012

Hi Tom, great post on the creators/developers of the Avengers (and on Kirby et al in general).

I would add Adi Granov to the list, as that's his version of the Iron Man armor depicted in the films; it originally appeared in his 2005 run on Iron Man (vol 4 #1-#6, "Extremis", written by Warren Ellis).

Of course, unlike most of the rest of the names on your list, Granov was actually hired to do design for the films himself, and as such gets credit and compensation -- maybe that's the reason he's not mentioned in your post, but I still think he belongs in there.

Keep up the good work!
