Comments: Created by Stan "The Man" Lee, Jack "King" Kirby, and Chick "...the brick?" Stone.
Favorsham was the last member of the group summoned by Gideon, but he appeared first (farthest left) in the order on the screen. Did that mean Favorsham was the most wealthy, powerful, and/or respected? Or was he just the last to respond and given the spot alphabetically (unlikely, as Van Vroot came next, before Tamiroff)? These and no other questions will most likely be answered never.
These images are from the original comic, but the characters were only shown in gray colors.
