Behind every action-packed, electrifying and sometimes heart-rending stories there are some extraordinary writers.
The superheroes we all love today were created by some of the best writers of the time. These were the people who not only created some fantastic superheroes but also created their stylish costumes, gave them those extra-ordinary superpowers, amazing origins and what not.
