There`s been evolution at DC. Interesting developments. Cool and awful ones. Of course he`s not as praised as Superman, but it hasn`t stopped Marvels from being used.
Besides, superman became a pseudo Billy Batson.
Kirby woulda gone to some other company, so I wouldn`t mind. ( Especially since I hate Marvel. )
They prolly wouldn`t have had been more fair, though. Which I would mind.
