Bill Everett was a comic book artist and writer for Timely Comics during the 1940s. He was best known from his chronicling of the real life adventures of the Sub-Mariner.

In the summer of 1942, when his co-worker and friend Carl Burgos was targeted by Nazi spies following a comic Carl had drawn mocking Adolf Hitler, Bill assisted the Human Torch and Toro in capturing the spies. With Carl poisoned by the Nazis, Bill and the two flaming heroes rushed him to the hospital where it was learned the poison was no match for Carl's cast iron stomach.[1]

Bill continued to work for Timely Comics and its successors Atlas Comics and Marvel Comics.[2] He died in 1973.



Bill Everett is, obviously, based on his real life counterpart William Blake Everett, the creator of the Sub-Mariner.
