I know what you mean as Kane was a glory hog and attention whore among many other things, but on his death bed he was asked who was your favorite Batman in the movies. He said Val Kilmer and his 2nd favorite was Lewis Wilson from the 1st movie serial!
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.
