I've read about that before. At the same time, just because the creator had an idea for a long running character doesn't mean it was a good idea.
See, e.g., George Lucas and the prequels.
He wasn't a long-running character when they considered doing it...he was only a couple of years old....
As noted here
, way back in Superman 45, Jerry Seigel wrote a story where he inexplicably decided that Superman was no also a telepath and a shapeshifter.
It was quickly forgotten. Should even more powers, and especially those powers, have become "a traditional aspect of the mythos in the decades to follow...like the Daily Planet, Perry White, Jimmy Olsen, bald Luthor, and Kryptonite"?
I'd say no. I suspect most people would say no.
But it was written by his creator.
Thereby proving that just because the creator came up with the idea doesn't mean it was necessarily a good one.
