Like Kirby or not, he created the characters as an employee of Marvel. His work product would be the property of Marvel, unless his contract stated otherwise. This would be like the designer of the Corvette claiming that he is entitled to the proceeds from the sale of the car. Might suck for his estate, but Kirby has no claim to the character.
