At that point, the general visibility’s of funnies had taken a downturn, and a debilitated Lee considered leaving the business until the point when his better half encouraged him to think of one story he “extremely loved” before stopping, he reviewed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2016.

In any case, in contrast to a group of costumed supervillains, they can’t be ended with a punch in the snoot or a zap from a beam firearm. The best way to pulverize them, is to uncover them — to uncover from the tricky insidiousness they truly are.”
