Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man, dies at 90

The co-creator of Spider-Man (Jack Kirby drew the first cover but was quickly replaced with Ditko) has died at age 90.
He worked along with Stan Lee on the popular character until he had a final disagreement with Stan and left the book, though coming back to Marvel nearly a decade later.

He was strong willed with his beliefs, specifically with those of Ayn Rand.

His own character, Mr. A, showcases Ditko's beliefs best.

Ditko also drew many, many great Sci Fi and Strange short stories as well.
