    Even though the Spider-Man cartoon, by Ralph Bakshi, was actually pretty good and didn't rip off either Ditko or Kirby.

    I'm pretty sure that Joe Simon and Jack Kirby had to sue Marvel to be credited as the actual creators of Captain America, pretty much the way that Siegel & Shuster had to sue to get their back royalties for creating Superman.  Makes me really glad that Joe Simon lived long enough to see the 2011 movie; reportedly he actually sat shiva when the character was (temporarily) killed off a few years earlier, which may seem excessive until you remember that Cap had been part of his life for something like 65 years at that point.....
