It is stories such as the lead one here that are among the many proofs of who was doing the writing at Marvel. It was not the editor who was claiming to be the "writer", but was in fact that various artists who were plotting, penciling, and in some cases inking the stories all on their own. Witness the wild swings in writing styles between stories that were supposedly only illustrated by Kirby, Ditko, and Ayers. You can tell by reading the work of these three men that three different men were writing them. Not one writer, but three. Not the editor, but the artist/writers.
Jack Kirby wrote.
Steve Ditko wrote.
Dick Ayers wrote.
The editor edited (but did not write).
