    I’m glad that u brought up the Malcolm X analogy. On my other blog… I don’t remember if I was speaking 2 u or some1 else, but the subject of the X-men & Dr. King came up, and I was like; “oh, here we go” The only thing that went thru my head was…somewhere down the line, Stan pioked up on this corellation between King & The X-men & ran w/ it. Marvel, even back then, being the oppurtunists that they were..weren’t gonna let something that they hadn’t thought of get in the way of their hype, so the house of ideas exsploited the situation & made out like that was the intent from the beginning. Funny how the more things change, the more they remain the same.

      My thing is it wasn’t Stan or Roy Thomas who picked up on it, it was writers ten years later, but some folks believe that’s the way it always was.

      To Stan’s credit he dealt directly with race by using actual black people in certain issues of the Avengers, Daredevil, Spiderman and probably others I’m aware not of. Some stories were good and some were bad, but he wasn’t afraid to address the issue head on.
