The Ditkophile: "The Destroyer of Heroes" from Blue Beetle #5, 1968

Blue Beetle #5 (1968) - "Blue Beetle Faces the Destroyer of Heroes"

Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) must put an end to the crusade of Our Man, a delusional defeatist who believes that heroes are evil and all heroic artwork must be destroyed. Steve Ditko gives us a great cover and art in this issue, and he even injects some Objectivist philosophy into the story that give insight into his views of the nature of art and man.
