Interesting Facts

#Fact
1The only time Kirby regretted his calling was when a military officer recognized him as an illustrator while he was serving in the field as a infantry trooper in World War II. He was then assigned to be a forward scout with the task of heading into hostile territory ahead of the main force to map it out, an extremely dangerous duty.
2His parents, Rose (Bernstein) and Benjamin Kurtzberg, were Austrian Jewish immigrants.
3Created Groot of ''The Guardians of The Galaxy'' fame.
4His favorite of his own works was the ''New Gods'' saga.
5Briefly worked as an animator for Fleischer Studios, the studio that would later make the animated Superman features which gave him flight, but disliked it.
6Was included in one of Mark Waid's ''Fantastic Four'' comics as God or some other powerful deity who was responsible for the creation of the heroes and Their adventures. The character was implied to have been the Ominiscient creator of all Marvel Universes.
7Jack Kirby was famous for being as tough as his characters. For instance, when a gangster was shaking down Kirby's boss, Will Eisner, to take his towel service, Kirby charged in to throw the gangster out. When Kirby created Captain America with Joe Simon, Nazi sympathizers once gathered in the lobby of the office building where the pair worked to threaten them. However, when upon hearing that Kirby was heading down with his sleeves rolled up to physically confront them himself, they fled before he arrived.
8He is the mutual idol of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. In honor of him they made a character called Kirby King for a comic book (Donatello #1, "Kirby and the Warp Crystal").
9Kirby was a veteran of World War II, where he saw combat in the European Theater. He later applied these experiences in his war comics, especially his lesser known work on DC's "The Losers.".
10He based the character of Ben Grimm, aka The Thing in Fantastic Four, on himself.
11His creations have included Captain America, Thor, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Black Panther, Silver Surfer, Doctor Doom and the X-Men.
12The relationship between The Thing and Mr Fantastic was modelled on his own with Stan Lee.
13Kirby created production art for an abandoned film project, based on Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light. The film script and concept art was later used for the "Argo" film project ruse that was part of the successful CIA-Canadian operation that managed to extract six Americans out of revolutionary Iran in 1980.
14Kirby is remembered fondly as not only a prolific artist, but a very considerate man at work. For instance, when he came to DC Comics after his most famous work at Marvel Comics in 1970, he insisted on taking over the minor title, "Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen," because it had no assigned talent at the time so he could work on it without causing anyone to lose his job.
15The character "Dan Turpin" in Superman (1996) (aka Superman: The Animated Series (1996)) was based on Jack Kirby.
16Had a major dispute with Marvel Comics to get back his original artwork (which consisted of well over 9000 pages over his ten year tenure). Marvel asked him to sign a release indemnifying the company for any missing work. Kirby refused. After a massive support campaign within the industry, Marvel eventually returned the remaining art, without conditions; but, much of it was missing, from his peak period.
17While at D.C., Kirby also created the characters OMAC (One Man Army Corps) and Kamandi, the last boy on Earth.
18A dispute with Stan Lee forced Kirby to leave Marvel after several years of writing and illustrating for them. Kirby then returned to Marvel's chief rival D.C. Comics (Simon & Kirby left Timely Comics, in the 1940s to jump to rival National/DC, and Kirby later worked for them in the 1950s), where he introduced his "Fourth World" series which included The New Gods, The Forever People, Mister Miracle as well as one of his greatest creations, the villain Darkseid. Although Kirby's direct involvement with his creations proved short-lived, he was later involved in action figure designs for these characters in the Super Powers toy line by the Kenner Toy Company in the 1980s. As DC Comics was proud to point out, this led to Kirby finally getting direct royalties for his comic book characters for the first time in his career.
19In honor of Jack Kirby, comic strip artist-writer Rick Veitch named his son Kirby.
20He was a major artist in the comic book medium throughout his career, raising standards for illustration and created important and influential characters like Captain America, the Fantastic Four and many other characters for Marvel and DC comics amoung others.
