Stan was born Stanley Martin Lieber on December 28th, 1922, in New York City. He was the son of Romanian Jewish immigrants who came to the US in 1903.
Stanley was a shy child who loved to read Sherlock Holmes novels as a form of escapism.
His family was not wealthy and fell into poverty when his father lost his job. But despite all the obstacles that life put in his way Stan still managed to graduate from high school at the age of 16.
He quickly found his path working as an office boy at Timely Comics.
Timely Comics was the company that would eventually go on to become Marvel Comics.
Stan rose quickly in the company and at just 19 became an editor. Stanley Martin Lieber changed his name to Stan Lee, a name that he thought would help make it easier for readers to identify with him.
Comic books became big business. They were relatively cheap to buy and offered their readers an escape from everyday life giving them heroes to look up to. They became popular with adults and children of all ages.
During this Golden Age of Comic Books, Stan Lee co-created some of Marvel’s most iconic characters. These include The Amazing Spider-Man, Steve Rogers’s Captain America, The God of Thunder Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, all the mutant X-Men, and the Fantastic Four.
By 1960, Marvel had become the No1 comic company having taken the top spot from DC Comics.
Unfortunately for Stan Lee, the Golden Age of Comic Books didn’t last forever.
In the 1950s, negative sentiment around comic books began to rise claiming that they were not good and damaging to children. Sales began to slow with many comic book publishers going out of business.
Stan Lee was forced to leave Marvel in 1972 over creative differences with new owners. Stan returned to Marvel in 1975, where he remained until his retirement in 2018.
On his return, he went back to what he loved most, writing comics full-time.
As his imaginative stories started to hit the big screen Stan started making cameo appearances in many of Marvel’s films, a tradition that continued up until his sad passing.
