What the hell imdb for years people like Bill Finger and Steve Ditko have gone un noticed in the comic book world whilst rich people like Bob Kane and Stan Lee (rip) have enjoyed sucess. People like me go along and try to correct history by saying who created what characters and suddenly its no good for you.

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your post.

Can you please provide a submission reference for the contributions you've made and an editor can look into this further for you.

Please also keep in mind our recently updated policy here:

https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/filmography-credits/writers/GPLAT3NTCGA67A6R

Which now states:

"We will no longer be accepting any uncredited "characters created by" credits on any title adapted from an existing source. The complexities and ambiguities in the creative process across writers involved in the genesis and the specific version of a character that appears in any adaptation means that it is not feasible to accurately represent their individual input. Please note that this policy does not impact credited "characters created by" credits, we will continue to list any "characters created by" credits that are credited on screen."

Thanks for understanding. 

Joel
