In King Kirby's defense, I must point out that there really isn't that much resemblance at all between Jack's costumed monster and the famous Creature. I mean, just look at them. Jack's monster has MUCH bigger scales (silver dollar sized) than the movie monster!



Someone at Marvel must have taken a second look at Triton and said "Hey, this guy's got a point", because he certainly doesn't look like that anymore. Fear of lawsuits is a strong incentive for creativity.

I see that Reggie made the same mistake I did; thinking that Triton was the orange-skinned guy. Actually I always thought Triton himself looked like the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
