This is a question that I have been pondering for a while – maybe I have too much time on my hands -However, if you listen to Paul Simon’s hit song from the 1970s – It goes like this: Slip out the back Jack ( JACK KIRBY? ) make a new plan Stan ( STAN LEE? ) no need to be coy Roy ( ROY THOMAS?) Hop on the bus Gus ( PAUL GUSTAVSON ? ) drop off the key Lee ( once again STAN LEE? ) Paul Simon has never mentioned anything about this himself , but it seems to me that he may have intended these lyrics partly as a homage to the writers and artists of Marvel Comics. What do you think?
