Stan's Soapbox...

One of the things we try to demonstrate in our yarns is that nobody is all good, or all bad. Even a shoddy supervillain can have a redeeming trait, just as any howlin' hero might have his nutty hangups. One of the greatest barriers to real peace and justice in this troubled world is the feeling that everyone on the other side of the idealogical fence is a "bad guy". We don't know if you're a far out radical, or Mr. Establishment himself - if you're a black militant or a white liberal - if you're a pantin' protest marcher or a jolly John Bircher - but, whatever you are, don't get bogged down by kindergarten labels! It's time we learned how fruitless it is to think in terms of us and them - of black and white. Maybe, just maybe, the other side isn't all bad. MAybe your own point of view isn't the only one that's divinely inspired. Maybe we'll never find true understanding until we listen to the other guy; and until we realize that we can never marche across the Rainbow Bridge to true Nirvana - unless we do it side-by-side.
