it gives the impression that writers today are just lazy, because rather than find a legit way of attempting to show a conflicted hero, they just make Ollie this careless and halfway irresponsible person.

Sadly, there is a lot of lazy writing in comic books today!

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.
