But when he was working at Marvel Comics, he went through a burst of creativity on the FANTASTIC FOUR title that is hard to grasp, creating a wealth of characters for the company that are still being utilized and capitalized today, decades after they appeared as supposedly secondary supporting cast.
During this time he created The Inhumans; Galactus; the Silver Surfer; the Black Panther; Wyatt Wingfoot; and HIM (aka Adam Warlock). This roughly two-year explosion of creativity only stopped when his editor intentionally wrecked the dialog for his two-story "HIM" arc in FF 66-67. Thereafter, Kirby pretty much stopped creating new characters for the company and stuck to the ones he'd already done.
