Stan Lee Biography brought to you by Lore in a Minute!
Before he was Stan Lee, he was your friendly neighborhood teenager, Stanley Lieber, who dreamt of writing the next Great American Novel. Stan Lee held various earthly jobs in his youth that included writing obituaries, delivering sandwiches, and selling newspaper subscriptions before he became an assistant at Timely Comics. There, he made his comic book debut as a text filler for Captain America No. 3 under the name “Stan Lee.”
Stan quickly bolted up through the ranks, going from text-filling to story-writing, then being appointed as editor-in-chief. From there, Stan’s spectacular rise to power knew no limits as he transformed Timely Comics into Marvel Comics and ushered in the Marvel Revolution becoming arguably the comic book creator of our time. With Jack Kirby, Stan created their first superhero group, the Fantastic Four. The Fantastic Four achieved astonishing success and led Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko to create some of Marvel’s finest heroes: Iron Man, The Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, and the X-Men.
After revolutionizing comic books, Stan launched an iron-fisted invasion of the cinema world and spearheaded the Marvel assault on Hollywood. With Stan developing and producing, Marvel enjoyed another staggering victory on the silver screen as Hollywood fell in love with the flawed superhero archetype. But the work of producing films while presiding over a multi-million dollar company began to wear, and Stan decided it was time to step down as president of Marvel.
