The fact that the Fleischer cartoons didn't use much of the mythos is actually a streght IMO, it shows that you don't need to use superpowered villains in order to tell a compelling story.
I do agree with you here.

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.
