I remember that if Fox hadn't made FF or Silver Surfer by a certain time they would have LOST the franchise and owed Marvel money (I forgot how much). Just didn't know about the damage to the characters

Responsibility, Duty, Honor these are not
mere virtues to which we must aspire
they're every soldier every King.
