"Comics: For the Connoisseur, No Laughing Matter." Martin Flusser Jr., Newsday, September 15, 1971
There was a rebirth in the interest for comic books, this interest was revitalized by characters like Captain America, Batman, Superman, and many others. The interest peaked as people could see themselves in the characters, the average appearing person being able to miracles. Stan Lee and other comic book writers were making characters that connected to the average person, and these characters began to have a following from people from all walks of life.
