The Breakdown - Marie Severin's contributions to comics

Marie Severn is a big reason why you have many of the super heroes you know and love.

In a world once dominated by men, Marvel artist Marie Severn was a titan.

A comic book artist and colorist, she got into comics because of her older brother who was also a comic book artist. She began coloring for him and eventually made her way to the big leagues.

Severin created the costume for Spider Woman and had a big hand in creating characters like The Incredible Hulk.

Severin's work is considered some of the best in the business.
