Someone has passed recently who have affected many of our lives. He was the editor of Marvel and was labeled as everyone’s real-life superhero.
Stan Lee was born on December 28th, 1922 in Manhattan, New York City. In 2006, he said as a child he was influenced by books and movies, particularly with Errol Flynn playing heroic roles.
His revolution extended beyond comics and storylines to the way in which he engaged his readership and built a sense of community between fans and creators.
After graduating early from high school, he joined the WPA Federal Theatre Project and was hired as an assistant at the new Timely Comics in 1939.
In the late 1950s, the company where he worked was known as Atlas Comics. Lee had written a variety of romance, western, humor, science fiction, horror, medieval adventure, and suspense.
When Marvel was in progress, he co-created The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and the X-Men with Bill Everett, and with co-author Steve Ditko, he created DareDevil, Doctor Strange, and their most successful character, Spider-Man.
Lee and Jack Kirby gathered several of their characters together and formed The Avengers. They all lived in a thoroughly shared universe.
Stan Lee was noted as the creator of Marvel and everybody’s real-life superhero. He will forever rest in our hearts.
