Randians Will Be Randians

Steve Skeates once wrote a comic featuring The Question (a character created by Randian Steve Ditko), in which the hero, asked by the villain “Don’t you remember me?” replies “Now listen, my friend, you weren’t important enough for me to remember!” Ditko had no problem with the last part of the line (after all it sounds a bit like Roark’s one line to Toohey), but he sent Skeates a six-page rant – “a rather daunting and even rather scary letter,” as Skeates recalls – explaining why his hero would never call a criminal “friend” even in jest.
