Synonymous with Marvel comics (and their films due to his various, hilarious cameos), Stanley Martin Lieber - known as Stan Lee - was born on 28 December, 1922. Growing up in the Great Depression, Stan dreamt of one day writing the Great American Novel and worked as a writer and illustrator in the army during the Second World War.
Working with talented artists including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, Stan Lee created the likes of Spider-Man, the Hulk, Thor and the X-Men during his writing career with Marvel. His first co-creation was the Destroyer in 1941 and this was followed by many other including The Fantastic Four in 1961. Lauded for his storytelling which brought important real-life issues into comic books (many by way of metaphors), he created characters that have become cultural icons. Stan has been married to his Joan B. Lee since 1947.
