Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
Does anyone know what Byrne meant when he compared his revamped Superman to the Fleischer Superman? I'm not seeing any references in his issues. He claimed "I'm going back to the basics. My Superman is basically the Seigel/Shuster version mixed with the Fleischer Superman set in 1986."
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.
