80 years old.

Guess that shows how old we're getting as I've always thought of him as the younger generation that took over after Stan Lee.

His biggest impact on comics for me will always be the Vision.  I had the Marvel Super Action reprint of Avengers 57 since childhood.  I love that ish.

I also really liked Avengers Annual 23 and Thor Annual 19, a Thomas 2-parter featuring Thor, Loki and Pluto.

What are your Roy Thomas classics or forgotten favorites?

I always appreciated Roy the Boy's love for the Golden Age characters, and, if that meant I read a lot of his World War II stories because of it, then so be it. I never much enjoyed war comics on their own, but throw some superheroes or supernatural threats of time-travel into the fray, and I'm joyfully on board for the ride.
