    At the New York Creation Con in 1971, Gerry Conway promised an upcoming Sub-Mariner story in which the hero “meets up with a New Orleans hooker, goes into a New Orleans cathouse, and does the whole routine with the pimp there. We felt that that was a little strong, so we changed that into something that’s cleaner … they’re all drug addicts now. The Comics Code accepted that.”
