ALAN MOORE GETS IT COMPLETELY WRONG - AGAIN...
Remember a while back (in this post) when I said someone should stick a sock in ALAN MOORE's gob to stop him making a total t*t of himself almost every time he opens his mouth? Well, listen to him accuse STAN LEE of claiming, in one of his ORIGINS books, to have created CAPTAIN AMERICA with JACK KIRBY.
I've got those Origins volumes - Stan never says he created the shield-slinger in any of them. In fact, although he's been mistakenly credited as having done so by lazy reporters who don't know their comicbook history, he himself , as far as I'm aware, has never made such a claim in his life. (Unlike Jack, who once claimed to have created SUPERMAN, and designed SPIDER-MAN's costume.)
Furthermore, to add insult to injury, Mr. Moore totally misrepresents the conversation between JONATHAN ROSS and Stan in the TV programme IN SEARCH OF STEVE DITKO, completely distorting what the two of them actually said and painting Stan in a bad light in the process.
Mr. Moore would do well to remember that, without Stan Lee, there might not have been a comicbook industry in which to carve out a lucrative career for himself - largely using the creations of others who preceded him.
