We all love to speculate here.

But some fan theories are just ridiculous (though nothing can top the actual ending of Lost). Well, it's Saturday night and it's time to let your inner weirdo loose! What's the most BIZARRE Marvel fan theory you can come up with? Bonus points for being totally batsh!t

@MichaelOgg Well back in the day, Stan screwed Jack out of money (supposedly) Jack slept with Stan's wife (supposedly ) it's all hearsay at this point

The Wikipedia article pretty succinctly sums up kirby's professional life and struggles with Marvel and DC, a lot of fans argue that kirby should have had as much fame and popularity as stan, he helped to create most of the modern cape genre of comics. As for the personal stuff, that's unconfirmed and I doubt we'll know the whole story, it's one of those rumors that has spread and stan has gone on record as saying that all of that stuff is between him and jack, and Jack is already dead.

@RamonPizarro makes sense. I definitely see Kirby getting a lot of posthumus credit (the Smithsonian did a class about comics and they focused really heavily on his contributions) but of course if we weren't there, there's only so much we can do to find out what was really going on I guess. I know Siegel and Shuster really went through a lot of grief over their claims to the profitable characters they created so I wouldn't be surprised if Marvel had similar issues
