Stan Lee is stealing credit from the grave

Stan Lee has a certain reputation among a section of comic fans in that, basically, he nicked credit where he could for decades refusing to give creators the credit they deserved. Lee started creating a certain myth for himself back in the 60’s and it more or less stuck with much of the general public til his death.

So considering how controversial creative ownership is with Lee, you’d think a comic that came out today, in February 2020 would get it right?

Nah.

Stan Lee had nothing to do with the creation of Captain America. That was a Joe Simon and Jack Kirby creation which is easily discovered if one has access to the internet, but whoever put that credit together is either so stupid you wonder how they can walk without shitting themselves, or they did it deliberately. Either isn’t good.

But this is only a multinational professional publishing company we’re talking about…
