Stan Lee Biography

Editor Writer 
Name at birth: Stanley Martin Lieber

The man behind the “Marvel Universe,” Stan Lee is revered by comic book fans for creating Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and other fresh comic superheroes of the 1960s.

Stan Lee became editor of Marvel Comics (then called Timely Comics) shortly after his service in the U.S. Army during World War II. T

His company was at that time overshadowed by rival D.C. Comics but in the 1960s Lee made Marvel into a comics powerhouse by introducing conflicted, wisecracking superheroes who were decidedly different from Superman’s prim persona.

Marvel Comics is often credited with revitalizing the superhero genre in general; the label’s many creations before and during Lee’s tenure included the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Captain America, and the melancholy Silver Surfer.

Spider-Man, perhaps the most enduring of all Marvel characters, was created by Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko in 1962.

In later years Marvel Comics became Marvel Entertainment Group and Lee expanded into movies, TV, and the Internet with mixed success and some financial troubles.

In the 21st Century, superhero movies came back into vogue, and Marvel comics characters were the basis of a long string of lucrative blockbusters — so many that the series and settings became known as the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” — often called MCU.

Among the many feature films from the MCU are Spider-ManThe X-Men, The HulkIron ManThor, The Avengers, and its sequels, Guardians of the GalaxyDr. Strange, and Black Panther.

Anyone who has watched a superhero movie knows about Stan Lee. Besides being a creator of many Marvel characters, he has a wonderful sense of humor and would make a cameo appearance in all of the movies. Sometimes as a bus driver and sometimes as a FedEx delivery man. His movies made cinema-going fun for millions around the world
