thick quicker or think quicker?

March 10, 2011

Thomas, Y’s editor-in-chief at the time, described the X’s genesis:

I had made up a character as a villain in ______________ — a very lackluster character — called Stunt-Master… a motorcyclist. Anyway, when Gary Friedrich started writing ___________, he said, “Instead of Stunt-Master, I’d like to make the villain a really weird motorcycle-riding character called X.” He didn’t describe him. I said, “Yeah, Gary, there’s only one thing wrong with it,” and he kind of looked at me weird, because we were old friends from Missouri, and I said, “That’s too good an idea to be just a villain in ____________. He should start out right away in his own book.” When Gary wasn’t there the day we were going to design it, Mike Ploog, who was going to be the artist, and I designed the character. I had this idea for the ______-______ [not tje same blank as above], something like Elvis’ 1968 Special jumpsuit, and so forth, and Ploog put the fire on the _ _ _ _, just because he thought it looked nice. Gary liked it, so they went off and did it.

just ID X.[very distinctly, the question has been removed of most give-aways 😉 ]
