For me, the most amazing thing about him by ObviousTroll (4.00 / 1) #1 Thu Nov 15, 2018 at 08:55:36 AM EST
was his ability to slip concepts like racism and the idea that everyone is flawed into his stories without rubbing people's faces in it.

Again, for me, it's what made Marvel so much more amazing than DC. The idea that Iron Man was an alcoholic jerk but still a hero, that the original Ant Man/Giant Man was his own worst enemy (and the Wasp's...), the idea that being an oppressed minority doesn't automatically confer sainthood and you still have to make serious moral choices about how to react to your oppressors, and so much more that showed that even fantasy doesn't have to be black and white.
