I'm sure that in 1964 the Beatles were seen as basically four Fabians, who would soon fade when the next big thing came along.
That was also the concern of the Beatles themselves. They didn't actually start to feel "secure" in their position in the rock hierarchy until well into 1966 if not later.

I also remember precisely such a phone-in poll in 1964 on our local rock station CHLO in which the Beatles were a less than overwhelming choice over the Dave Clark Five.
Many present day music fans don't realize that it was actually the Dave Clark Five who were seen here in North America as the biggest rivals to the Beatles until sometime in the spring of 1965. While the Rolling Stones were already challenging the Beatles in popularity in the U.K. in 1964, they didn't hit it really big in North America until the release of Satisfaction in 1965.

But it went beyond that too; Paul and John wrote, and John was the acknowledged "chief Beatle". But I have thought about Mort's putting words into Superman's mouth regards Ringo.....
Point being, I was moving DVDs around and seeing the latest edition of A Hard Day's Night, I recalled the spotlight on Ringo as the "little tramp- like" loner was the longest such segment in the movie. Was Mort being perceptive? Or was Ringo just the only Beatle he could recall at the time?
Oh well, enough of this music stuff, let's get back to funny books shall we?

Interesting that I don't remember ever seeing a Dobie Gillis comic on the newsstand even though they were still being published at such a late date in my comic buying days.

This cover satirizing Spider-Man constitutes proof positive that DC was at this early date already beginning to feel the bite from Marvel's growing sales.
