The Bangor Brothers

Stephen King and his son Owen created the G.I. Joe/Cobra character Crystal Ball!!!!!!!!!!!!

 “It was his [Owen’s] idea! He had all the G.I. Joes and we watched it on TV, and we read the comic books.  He said, ‘Dad, it would be great if there was a G.I. Joe who could read minds.’ And I said, ‘Oh, yeah, that would be really great. What would you call a character like that?’ And Owen said, ‘Crystal Ball!’

Stephen King, who pitched the idea to Hasbro, who then made it a reality, and even had King write the file card bio for the character!

 

Hasbro returned the favor by giving the character/figure Sneak Peek the civilian name Owen King, from… Bangor Maine!

yo Joe!  and yo Kings too!
