historical perspectives reshuffle

The cover story of Strange Adventures #60… circa 1955

begins with a splash page where Napoleon Bonaparte looks on at a street parade in Christopher Columbus’s honor and thinks…

“So Columbus thinks he’s more popular here in the twentieth century than I — Napoleon Bonaparte!  Well, I’m going to prove he’s wrong!”

Indeed.  Columbus was more popular in the twentieth century than Napoleon.  Now in the twenty-first century — it’s maybe a coin toss.
