Doc Savage married his cousin Patricia in 1949 and disappeared from public view in the mid-50s when his twin sons were born. In 1975 Patricia and other associates created an organization called the Savage Company which sponsors investigations and explorations. The couple's fraternal twin children disappeared with their parents and reappeared to go to college in the early 70s. They are fairly prominent adventurers. Clark Savage III formed the New York supergroup known as the Guardians in the late 70s under the name Hunter, and seemingly disappeared about 15 years ago. Old associates such as Marksman and Icestar do not seem unduly worried about him, though. Steven Savage has a distinguished career as a criminologist and scientist and is now the managing director of the Kansas City Gladiators, a supergroup with internationalist pretensions.
