Stan Lee’s death was very unfortunate for his fans across the globe. Whether it was one of his famous cameos in the Marvel movies or his fantastically creative superhero comics, he touched a lot of people’s lives. He is responsible for so many of the superheroes that we know and love today. Just a few of these heroes include, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “The Invincible Iron Man,” and so many more.
Born in Manhattan, New york, December 28, 1922, Stan Lee, who was born Stanley Martin Lieber, always worked hard for his fill. He graduated high school at 16 and even got an assistant job at Timely Comics. This is where he changed his name to how we know him today, and where he got his start with creating his first character. Stan went on to serve our country in 1942 up until 1945. He then returned to Timely Comics and made his way through the ranks up until the 1950s. He then lost interest in staying with the company, and went on to create the beloved Marvel Comics.
Marvel Comics was started by Stan Lee and his friend Jack Kirby; it was here that The Fantastic Four, Spiderman, and the Hulk were created. Stan not only created new pioneering comics, but he pioneered many other things things like including all contributors to the comic on the splash page.
Because of Lee’s and Kirby’s hard work and creativity, they have been awarded many awards. In fact they have achieved 16 awards. Some of which include the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame, Bill Finger Award, and multiple Lifetime Achievement Award.
Stan Lee’s imagination and enthusiasm will be missed. Although he has passed away, his legacy will remain.
