The company's first true editor, writer-artist Joe Simon , teamed with artist Jack Kirby to create one of the first patriotically themed superheroes, [9] Captain America , in Captain America Comics 1 March It, too, proved a hit, with sales of nearly one million.

Timely also published one of humor cartoonist Basil Wolverton 's best-known features, " Powerhouse Pepper ", [11] [12] as well as a line of children's funny-animal comics featuring characters like Super Rabbit and the duo Ziggy Pig and Silly Seal.

Goodman hired his wife's cousin, [13] Stanley Lieber, as a general office assistant in Lee wrote extensively for Timely, contributing to a number of different titles.

Goodman's business strategy involved having his various magazines and comic books published by a number of corporations all operating out of the same office and with the same staff. As well, some comics' covers, such as All Surprise Comics 12 Winter —47 , were labeled "A Marvel Magazine" many years before Goodman would formally adopt the name in Goodman began using the globe logo of the Atlas News Company, the newsstand-distribution company he owned, [18] on comics cover-dated November even though another company, Kable News, continued to distribute his comics through the August issues.

Atlas did not achieve any breakout hits and, according to Stan Lee, Atlas survived chiefly because it produced work quickly, cheaply, and at a passable quality.

Subsequently, Marvel comics developed a reputation for focusing on characterization and adult issues to a greater extent than most superhero comics before them, a quality which the new generation of older readers appreciated. Its young hero suffered from self-doubt and mundane problems like any other teenager, something with which many readers could identify. Lee and freelance artist and eventual co-plotter Jack Kirby 's Fantastic Four originated in a Cold War culture that led their creators to revise the superhero conventions of previous eras to better reflect the psychological spirit of their age.

Some Marvel heroes looked like villains and monsters such as the Hulk and the Thing. This naturalistic approach even extended into topical politics.

Superman rarely crossed national borders or involved himself in political disputes. Communist agents attack Ant-Man in his laboratory, red henchmen jump the Fantastic Four on the moon, and Viet Cong guerrillas take potshots at Iron Man.

In , Spider-Man and the Hulk were both featured in Esquire magazine's list of 28 college campus heroes, alongside John F. Kennedy and Bob Dylan. It was Kirby's artwork with its tension and psychedelia that made it perfect for the times—or was it Lee's bravado and melodrama, which was somehow insecure and brash at the same time?

Cadence Industries ownership[ edit ] In , while selling 50 million comic books a year, company founder Goodman revised the constraining distribution arrangement with Independent News he had reached under duress during the Atlas years, allowing him now to release as many titles as demand warranted.

Lee agreed and wrote a three-part Spider-Man story portraying drug use as dangerous and unglamorous. However, the industry's self-censorship board, the Comics Code Authority , refused to approve the story because of the presence of narcotics, deeming the context of the story irrelevant.

The market reacted well to the storyline, and the CCA subsequently revised the Code the same year. Thomas added "Stan Lee Presents" to the opening page of each comic book. Some of these were published in larger-format black and white magazines, under its Curtis Magazines imprint.

Marvel was able to capitalize on its successful superhero comics of the previous decade by acquiring a new newsstand distributor and greatly expanding its comics line. Marvel pulled ahead of rival DC Comics in , during a time when the price and format of the standard newsstand comic were in flux. DC followed suit, but Marvel the following month dropped its comics to 20 cents for 36 pages, offering a lower-priced product with a higher distributor discount.

Cult hits such as Howard the Duck fell victim to the distribution problems, with some titles reporting low sales when in fact the first specialty comic book stores resold them at a later date.

Marvel ventured into audio in with a radio series and a record, both had Stan Lee as narrator. The radio series was Fantastic Four. Cover art by Mike Zeck. At the event, Stan Lee used a Fantastic Four panel discussion to announce that Jack Kirby , the artist co-creator of most of Marvel's signature characters, was returning to Marvel after having left in to work for rival DC Comics.Kitty Pryde, Agent of S.
