Thats not a correction. Someone originally created every single hero, but neither Stan Lee or Steve Ditko created Spidy independent of Marvel though. Both did so as part of their contractual obligations to Marvel to create new content. So there is no reason to mention them in this context nor does it in anyway change the dynamics of my post, not sure why you thought it would, or considered it a correction.

Comments like this are why I question the knowledge of people on subjects like this, you make it sound as if you didnt know Marvel is a comic book company and created these character 40 to 50 years ago.

instead, you talk like stan lee or Steve Ditko created the character in their basement, published the comics, and then Marvel bought them out.

The USDOJ knocked dock the classical Hollywood studio system over 70 years and the Edison Trust over 100 years ago as both had unfair competition and monopoly-related concerns. However, they were fine with the AT&T/WarnerMedia and Disney/Fox mergers.

FB, Google, Amazon, AT&T, Comcast, Disney, Verizon, Microsoft, Apple, Walmart, and various other media or telecommunications or retail giants certainly need some serious downsizing (11-digits at least).

The film industry seems to have devoured not only the comic book industry but also literature in general, (see how many books are made into movies).

Even if you look at theater, they're too dominated by certain castes & classes.

I think during the New Deal there was an attempt to have local theater groups, but then again Uta Hagen was one of the few that I have come across in my research to allude & hint about what was going down during the Red Scare from 1919 to the McCarthy era (roughy ending around late 1960's).

Challenge For The Actor, p.17-19

I believe Ms. Hagen was also a colleague of the scientific socialist Robeson, something that would not have helped her during this particular ideological time period.

Opportunity, Volumes 21-22; p.28.
