    Infollowing a dispute over creator's rights, McFarlane left Marvel. The publisher avoided genres like superheroes, which publisher Chris Oliveros saw as stifling comics' growth. The multitude of Canadian comics heroes vanished, becoming a fond, but increasingly faint, memory for those who had grown up during the war years. I got Mark Millar's Saviour a really rare book from them. Nelvana drew her superpowers—which included flight, invisibility, and super speed—from the lights themselves, and used them to ward off everything from mammoth men to Nazis.

    Why not? Anglo-American published a large number of titles, including Freelance, Grand Slam, Three Aces, Whiz, Captain Marvel and Atom Smasher, but relied less on serials, and was less patriotically Canadian than its rival publishers. And the population difference is of course important because the higher cover price copies were the kind sent to Canada, priced for Canadian currency. Since the mids these same trends have continued.
