I wasn't there, so I probably shouldn't be inadvertently starting an Internet myth, but I wonder if part of this story was a light rebuttal to conversations Lee had with Steve Ditko.

Excuse me. I just realized that Lee's brother scripted this, not Lee himself. Interesting.

If Stan Lee wanted to take a dig at Steve Ditko and get away with it, this would be a great way to do it. Provide a thumbnail plot, and get someone else to write and draw it. This was around the same time as "How Stan Lee and Steve Ditko Created Spider-man," in one of the early annuals (S-M 2?), which gently (actually not so gently) parodied their working relationship.

I don't know about a dig at Ditko but I personally think Ayn Rand was full of hooey.

I'm disappointed the cigar-chomping proto-Claremont in the final scan didn't throw a "body and soul" or a "bang, you dead" in there.

Dear lord, Stan Lee & Larry Lieber predicted the election of Trump! :P
