'Twas Steve's idea.



" The first story is nothing great, but perhaps we can make something of him.
'Twas Steve's idea. "
Stan Lee is quoted in 1963 as saying this:  "Steve Ditko is gonna draw him. Sort of a black magic theme. The first story is nothing great, but perhaps we can make something of him—'twas Steve's idea, and I figgered we'd give it a chance, although again, we had to rush the first one too much."  The first appearance of Doctor Strange was Strange Tales #110 as just a five page filler.  As editor in chief Stan would have had a say in any new character's development but he didn't co-create the character by any means.
