Ben Grimm - by Eddy Maurice
calamityjon: Happy Hanukkah, folks! This year, I thought I’d take the opportunity over the holiday to showcase eight great Jewish superheroes and comic characters (making up a little illustrated menorah), one debuting each day! Stay tuned!
Starting us off, it’s arguably the most high-profile Jewish superhero in comics, Ben Grimm - the Ever-Lovin’ Blue Eyed THING! Even though he debuted in 1961, it wasn’t until 2002 that Ben was officially revealed in canon to be Jewish, although creator Jack Kirby had always intended for and thought of Grimm as Jewish (for instance, see this great sketch by Kirby dated 1976).
More to come tomorrow!
