A young Jim Shooter needed money so he carefully researched the comicbook market and when he was satified he understood it wrote a script and submitted it to DC. DC bought the script and asked for a few more, then more still.

Eventually Jim gets a phone call from a DC editor asking him to come over to New York to discuss a book. Jim hesitates on the phone and it suddenly dawns on the DC editor.

The DC editor suddenly "Erm.. how old are you?"
Jim replies "14, sir."
The DC Editor pauses. "Can I speak with you mom, son."

And that is how Marvel famous editor in-chief career in comics started.

Not certain what the confusion is...

...unless it's the fact that they skip the part about having a threesome with the clone before dumping her?
But but why the clone? I mean what's the point?

But..but.. the style of the art... the content of the text... the comics is used to read that looked like that didn't express those kind of concepts... not overtly at any rate.

That was just one storyline in Captain America, "Man & Wolf," that ran for about 6 issues. Probably would have been better received if it wasn't for the bog standard house style of the day. As it was, people at the time seemed to really hate it. It guest-starred just about every wolfy character extant, including Man-Wolf, but iirc Cap was the only one who got werewolfed. It all harkens back to a story from the early 70s where Cap's buddy Falcon is the one that gets lycanized.

Yeah I remember capwolf from that time, but the art was too much of a turn-off for me

Same. I pretty much gave up on comics altogether at that point. What's funny, though, is that Capwolf has apparently gained a new life in the past few years. Just google "capwolf" and click the "images" tab to see what I mean. Hell, he even got freakin' action figure recently!

People like to insert absurd dialogue into old romance comics so I wouldn’t be surprised that is where that panel is from.

That is so disappointing. I prefer to think this was panel sneakily slipped past the Comic Code Authority by a rebel comicbook writer who just happened to have a thing about clones before Star Wars ruined it for him.
