Walt Simonson is a comic book writer and artist, perhaps best known for his defining 1983-1987 run both writing and drawing ''[[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]''. During this time, he introduced ComicBook/BetaRayBill and [[ComicBook/TheFightForAsgard frog Thor]], as well as writing many of the series' most memorable moments ''ever''. (Check out Awesome/TheMightyThor - the first fifteen or so are all from his run, and the page picture is possibly ''the'' Simonson Thor moment) It's even a meme amongst the fandom that Simonson is "just another guise of Odin".
