OK, so, being in an environment like Fawcett, surely Steve Ditko's views must have taken a change or several, right?
 
That will depend upon any of his Fawcett characters receives any mainstream success like Spiderman did
My bet is either on The Question, Hawk and Dove or Speedball. And even then, only if Fawcett promotes any of these characters. Having cartoons and merchandise might help, but in my mind, that would only work if Fawcett is bought. I've mentioned Viacom several times. I'm not sure who else could be interested. Maybe Paramount?

well IOTL CBS purchased Fawcett publication in 77 if this still goes happens ITTL it would certainly affect the Wonder Woman and Incredible Hulk TV shows
also I'm working on an idea that would mean that Speedball would not be part of Fawcett

Personally, I think he should. Same for Squirrel Girl. As I said, I'm for Fawcett to realistically survive as a comic company, they need to build their universe. That means more characters, more heroes more villains to work with, etc. That's why I was disapointed about the Daleks. Also, I suggested Paramount or Viacom for one reason. For one, it'd mean better quality +m when the 90s roll around and MTV and Liquid Television and Nickelodeon (provided they don't stay with Warner and MTV makes their own kids channel ITTL) come to prominence, You could have animated kid shows in a similar style and quality to say....these adult cartoons.




Maybe even a Fawcett counterpart to the Marvel Action and Dc Animated Universes. And in my mind, it'd be so cool to see Saturday Morning/Afternoon shows done up with the same Quality of 90s MTV at night.

on January 28, 1971 The Comic book Code authority relaxed sanctions to allow for, among other things, the sometimes "sympathetic depiction of criminal behavior and corruption among public officials" ("as long as it is portrayed as exceptional and the culprit is punished") as well as permitting some criminal activities to kill law-enforcement officers and the "suggestion but not portrayal of seduction. Also newly allowed were "vampires, ghouls and werewolves... when handled in the classic tradition such as Frankenstein, Dracula, and other high calibre literary works written by Edgar Allan Poe, Saki, Conan Doyle and other respected authors whose works are read in schools around the world". This allowed the Monster Society of Evil reappear at Fawcett for the first time since the late 40s

This could be a good chance for the two earths thing to happen at Fawcett. Like, maybe the Monster Society of The Golden Earth emerges after nearly 30 years, brought back together by an aged Dr. Sivana and his family. After using Black Magic of some kind to Resurrect the long-dead Mr Mind of that Earth as a super-Intelligent Zombie, Sivana reveals that he has discovered the Alternate Silver Earth and believes that since the heroes there are still young and inexperienced, compared to the ''Crusaders Club'' on their Earth, they should be able to take it over with relative ease. Mr Mind immediately retakes control and instructs the Society to create a gateway to the other Earth using his designs. Somehow, their secret meeting is infiltrated by a 30-something-year-old Fred Freeman who relays the info to the now 42-year-old William Batson and Mary Batson of that Earth, who're still operating as Captain and Mary Marvel, while Freddy decided to Retire after feeling as if he'd become too old to be Captain Marvel Jr and became a cop instead. They gather up the Crusaders Club and manage to head into the portal ahead of the monster society. After Reaching Silver Earth they quickly find themselves meeting up with the Crusaders Squadron. After a misunderstanding leads to a fight, the two teams join forces and beat the Monster Society back to Golden Earth.

2 things
  1. Zombies still don't get the Comic book code approval until the late 70s-early 80s and then IOTL Marvel was quick to copyright the name for comics (I was thinking of making Dracula the new leader the MSE)
  2. I counter the idea that Golden-Earths Fred Freeman instead takes up the name Marvelman instead...That being said William Batson & Mary Freeman still call him Junior
 
In 1971, the Schanes brothers (Steve Schanes, age 17, and Bill Schanes, age 13) co-founded Pacific Comics, which started out as a mail-order company, selling to consumers via ads in the Comics Buyer's Guide. This led to advertisements inside some Atlas comics, and ultimately to tangible retail stores. The first Pacific Comics store opened in Pacific Beach, California, in 1974, and business was soon doing so well that the brothers realized they "couldn't get merchandise" for the stores, and so set up a distribution system, which was soon supplying neighboring stores.

The New Gods grew to prominence when Superman the movie introduced Steppenwolf (Terrance Stamp) Lashra (Sarah Douglas) & Kalibak (Jack O'harrlen) in the opening scene of the Richard Donner movie
