It just shows you how puerile, juvenile, simplistic and innocent things were back then. Superman since the middle bronze age as Clark Kent has been a kick-ass superhero with lots of character development, but when you imagine that as a boy he jumped dimensions and had a superdog and a super horse and on and on... it becomes farcical and you wonder why anyone would read that ****.

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.
