„To make the [reader] happy was not my objective, but to make the [reader] say, Yeah, that’s what would happen.“

—  Jack Kirby American comic book artist, writer and editor 1917 - 1994

You take the Thing, he’d knock out 50 guys at a time and win — then maybe he’d sit down and kind of reflect on it: “Maybe I hurt somebody or maybe we could have done it some other way” like a human being would think, not like a monster. In other books the guy would knock out the gangs and that would be the end of it. You would see the guys in jail, and that’s it. Or it would say, “Wait until next week.”
