Rob's Room: KISS' Gene Simmons Costume Inspired by Jack Kirby's Black Bolt Design

I always liked the band KISS (perhaps because my born again Christian grandma used to try to try to scare me away from them - after all, KISS stood for "Knights In Satan's Service").  Even though Gene Simmons strikes me as kind of a jerk, his stage persona still fascinates me.  I probably appreciate it more now that I know The Demon was partly based on Jack Kirby's Black Bolt design.
