“The creators of Spider-Man, Storm, and Power Man are unknown”?
We thought this was settled by now. Certainly Marvel Comics should know it. But apparently not. In the recent trade paperback, Spider-Man Fights Substance Abuse, we find this blurb on the credits page:
The creators of Spider-Man, Storm, and Power Man are unknown.
Apparently, Marvel is having some substance abuse problems of their own over there, or this is the latest salvo in the Disneyfication of Marvel where they decide they own everything, and it was all created by nameless workers.
Since some people at Marvel appear to be on drugs themselves, let us make this perfectly clear:
- Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
- Storm was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum.
- Power Man was created by Archie Goodwin and John Romita Sr.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject:
Hopefully, we won’t have to repeat this. But knowing Marvel of late, we probably will have to repeat it. A lot.
