Yes we know Atlas became Marvel. At the time they were not in the same class as Archie, DC/National, and EC. I don't recall Martin Goodman of Atlas being part of the Comics Magazine Association of America or writing any of the code. John Goldwater of Archie was the president and Jack Liebowitz of DC was the vice president. The code hurt Atlas, at the time they followed trends and were into horror comics too. Stan Lee said they got by producing passable quality books quickly and cheaply. Atlas certainly became the most relevant publisher, but I don't think they could be considered involved with writing the code. Archie isn't relevant anymore, as in if they went away tomorrow it wouldn't effect the direct market. So I don't get what you're trying to say?
