“Wood gave up, left, and never forgave Stan as long as he lived. “He despised Stan,” recalls Wood’s former assistant Ralph Reese. “He was always on, he was always being Stan Lee. He was just a relentless self-promoter. He was kind of a phony, in Wood’s opinion.” Years later, according to Reese, Wood and Ditko would spend time together and kvetch about Stan. “They said that Stan’s a blowhard and took credit for a lot of stuff he didn’t really create,” Reese recalls. “Even more than that, they resented the fact that Stan was making millions of dollars and they were still struggling, living in rented apartments.”
Abraham Riesman, True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee

“Men who had been doctors and lawyers in the Old Country were reduced to roving as street peddlers. “This was the boasted American freedom and opportunity,” said Ravage, “the freedom for respectable citizens to sell cabbages from hideous carts, the opportunity to live in those monstrous, dirty caves that shut out the sunshine.”
Abraham Riesman, True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee

“Stan had, in a way, fulfilled the wish he’d harbored since at least the end of World War II: He was finally free from the world of comic books. The time had come to try his hand in showbiz. Like a wish on the monkey’s paw, the results ended up being as much curse as blessing.”
Abraham Riesman, True Believer: The Rise and Fall of Stan Lee
