Ron Wilson started drawing for Marvel in the early1970s, doing cover illustrations and interior artwork. During the 1970s, he was a regular artist of 'Marvel Two-In-One' and 'Power Man', and he also did fill-ins on 'Hulk' and 'Captain Britain'. In the 1980s, Wilson illustrated titles like 'The Thing' (1983-1986), 'Masters of the Universe' (1986-1988), 'Wolfpack' (1988-1989) and did contributions to the 'What If' series.
In 1990, he illustrated an issue of 'Urth4' with Continuity comics, and then returned to Marvel to do 'WCW World Championship Wrestling' in 1992-1993. He subsequently appeared on a regular base in Marvel Comics Presents before joining DC's Milestone Media imprint in the mid 1990s. He was mainly involved in character design, but also illustrated the mini-series 'Arion the Immortal'. In 2012 he announced to be working on a new creator-owned project called 'Battle Rappers'.
