This is good then. I don't mean to come off as cynical, but realistically if Clark gains all this knowledge about the human race from traveling the world and he sees problems such as war and famine and world hunger it would be hard to have an optimistic Superman. Someone or something needs to ground him.
Jerry and Joe were gentlemen. Bob Kane was a thief and a glory-hound who was more concerned about profit and prestige. I cannot bring myself to believe the same things about Stan Lee in regards to his two main contributors, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. I'm inclined to believe Stan's version of events as he has usually been very willing to credit his co-conspirators, but the truth is because different versions of credit exists, we will never truly know.
