    No, there is absolutely no doubt that Stan Lee & Marvel Comics did everything in their power to prevent their pencillers from getting any intellectual property right.

    After all, Stan Lee was the editor-in-chief, then the publisher, chairman, chairman emeritus and member of the editorial board.


Stan has never been in he position to grant rights to creators. As you say, he's been EIC, President and Publisher, but he's never OWNED the company.

From 1939 to 1968 the only man with the power to give creators their copyrights - or a portion of them - back was Martin Goodman. When Goodman sold his business to Cadence in '68 the copyrights passed to them, and to their successors. Even as President, Stan always had a board of directors above him and it was they who dictated company policy.
