18 year-old Nas

Hey, you know Steve Ditko, the guy who co-created Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Squirrel Girl, the Creeper, the Question, and the Ted Kord Blue Beetle? Well, at some point Ditko took a headfirst dive into the philosophy of Ayn Rand - and the Objectivism-spouting vigilante Mr. A is that particular passion of his given ultimate comic book form.
I’ve never expended much effort trying to track the stories down, but a friend of mine did, and… well, they’re about as subtle as a packet of Chick tracts, except they star a guy wearing a Destro mask and a matching pair of oversized steel mittens. Still, I can’t fault the sense of graphic design on display here; if ever there was an artist born to draw men in business suits punching the hell out of gangsters and/or abstract philosophical concepts, it was Steve Ditko.
(Amusingly, this exact page was later parodied in an issue of DC’s Ambush Bug, but “Corrupt” was replaced with “Pittsburgh.”)
(Also amusingly, spell-check thinks “Objectivism” is a typo.)
