** Creator/ChrisClaremont, pushing it from a failed [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] idea into the Franchise/MarvelUniverse's biggest cash cow. ComicBook/{{Magneto}} can especially be considered his "baby". While the character existed long before he came along (having been introduced in the very first issue), he was, in his original form, your typical over-the-top villain ''and then some''. It was Claremont who fleshed him out into the WellIntentionedExtremist we know him as today, before bringing him through an affecting HeelFaceTurn (This turned out to be [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor the first of many, though]]). To the fans, he's known as the "Father of X(-men)".

It was also during the Claremont era, that the X-Men came to be seen as an allegory for the Civil Rights Movement and as a metaphor for minority rights.

* While Creator/IanFleming created Franchise/JamesBond, his version was very much an AntiHero (Creator/DanielCraig is very close). Terence Young was really the creator of the suave Creator/SeanConnery Bond we all love. His instruction to Sean was to imitate him.

* Fans are divided on just who Comicbook/SpiderMan's Real Daddy is, both in terms of the artist and the writer. Depending on who you ask, Spidey's definitive artist is either co-creator Creator/SteveDitko or John Romita, Sr., and Spidey's definitive writer is either co-creator Creator/StanLee or J.M. [=DeMatteis=]. And then there's the endless debates over whether Creator/StanLee or his artists (primarily Ditko and Romita) deserve more credit for the original [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] stories. All three debates have a tendency to turn quite vicious.

All three debates have a tendency to turn quite vicious. In any case, Ditko, as per Lee himself, came up with the costumes, design and looks of not only Spider-Man but his supporting cast and RoguesGallery, and did most of the plots near the end. John Romita, Sr. on the other hand redesigned the look of not only Peter Parker (giving him an ArtEvolution that has mostly been Peter's default look across cartoons and other media) but also created Peter's gang (making Harry Osborn his best friend, starting the LoveTriangle between Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane, and designing the classic looks of both characters). Romita's features more or less shows up across many adaptations, with Harry Osborn being retroactively made into Peter's best friend (as can be seen in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy''), relegating many of Ditko's run to EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.

His quality run on other titles is debated, but nearly everyone agrees ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'' was so successful and influential that USM was consistently pitch-perfect.many parts of it became adapted into games, cartoons and the most recent Spider-Man films, with ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' borrowing the Richard Parker backstory from ''Ultimate Venom'' and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' including via CompositeCharacter and SettingUpdate many parts of his Ultimate run. He's also the co-creator and writer of the very popular ''ComicBook/MilesMorales''.

* Creator/WaltSimonson's [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]. It's telling that any list of the greatest Thor stories of all time will be largely populated by stories by Simonson, who injected a sense of myth and epic (particularly the battle between Thor and Jormungandr, when the entire issue was written in epic verse) to a previously forgettable series, making Loki far more complex and interesting than his previous incarnations.

Basically, he did for Thor what Claremont did for the X-Men.
** The question of who Thor's modern dad is remains open, though some posit Straczynski, who brought Thor back after Ragnarok, while others posit Jason Aaron's Thor run - even fans who dislike the new Thors (first [[spoiler: Jane Foster]], now the new 'War Thor' in [[spoiler: Volstagg]]) admit that his initial Thor run, which explored the Nine Realms more, created new antagonists in the spectacularly creepy Gorr the God Butcher and the deceptively dangerous Roxxon CEO Dario Agger [[spoiler: (who can transform into the Minotaur, though he's actually less dangerous like this, since Thor can beat the crap out of him with impunity)]], and explored Thor's insecurities and personal doubts over his worthiness and the worthiness of gods in general, as well as bringing Malekith the Accursed back after over a decade of being PutOnABus (aside from a brief, comical appearance in the ''Incredible Hercules'') as an AxCrazy MagnificentBastard and making him the central villain of the series going forward.
* James Robinson has taken the position of the Scarlet Witch's Real Daddy, after writing a well-received solo series and pointing out that if you ask people to define Wanda's personality, it's either 'aloof and quiet' or 'completely batshit insane'.

* Joe Simon and Creator/JackKirby created the ComicBook/CaptainAmerica character, but it wasn't until Creator/StanLee (also working with Kirby) brought him back from obscurity and created his signature "Man Out of Time" story that Cap really became a character people could relate to. Modern Cap writer Creator/EdBrubaker is credited with reinventing Captain America again for the modern comics world the same way Lee reinvented him for UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}. Typically, this isn't universal, and others might give that status to Mark Gruenwald or Creator/MarkWaid for their own lengthy runs on the character.
** Creator/EdBrubaker is credited for making ComicBook/BuckyBarnes popular, turning him from a JokeCharacter who was a blatant attempt at copying the success of ComicBook/{{Robin}} to a darker, and more serious and complex character who went on to become a BreakoutCharacter under Brubaker's pen.

** However, with the near-univeral positive reception of Books 3 and 4 of ''Korra'', fans have called into question whether or not so much credit can be given to Ehasz for ''The Last Airbender''. Some fans also argue that while Ehasz is a good writer, many of his unused ideas were logically inconsistent with the overall direction for the series, and instead his writing complemented Bryke's ideas. Add to that the fact that many talented people (like Joaquim Dos Santos) contributed to both series, all under the creative vision of Bryke, and many fans will argue that it was thanks to Bryke that ''The Last Airbender'' was so good.

* Creator/{{Christopher Priest|Comics}} is this for ComicBook/BlackPanther, to the point that it's made it nearly impossible for any other writer to have success with the character. Creator/ReginaldHudlin's series did OK... right up until he stopped copying Priest and started trying to do his own thing, at which point sales immediately tanked. This is an odd case, because Priest's run didn't sell particularly well, but has nonetheless become the go-to interpretation of the character.

* Superboy-Prime has Creator/GeoffJohns. During the ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar, Superboy-Prime was one of the scariest, most sympathetic and yet unforgivable villains. He actually came across as a person who was so lost he might never be found. He was also the villain who you WANTED to see killed by the real Superman. Notably, he's actually considered damn near unreadable whenever anyone else is writing him.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino in 1959, but they had little to do with the character afterwards.
** Jerry Siegel made sure to set her apart from Superman and created her first enemies, love interests and most of her initial supporting cast. Jim Mooney was her main artist during that period.
** Paul Kupperberg wrote Pre-Crisis Supergirl's best stories, making her step out of her cousin's shadow for good.
** Creator/MarkWaid and later Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle rehabilitated Post-Crisis Supergirl after a dreadful DorkAge and created one of the definite runs of the character. Sterling Gates also came up with her "Hope, Compassion and Help for all" motto.



* [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Dick Grayson]] was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger shortly after his mentor in 1940, and he was well-defined in his "Comicbook/{{Robin}}" persona until he was turned into ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} during Marv Wolfman and Creator/GeorgePerez's successful run on ''Teen Titans'' in 1984. He struggled to find a niche after that, but it is Creator/ChuckDixon's run on the 1996 ''Nightwing'' series, that is considered to be the defining run that codified the character ever since.
