Lee, who reportedly died Monday at the age of 95, launched his comic book career at Timely Comics as a teenager in 1939, Marvel notes on its website.

Right away, Lee got to work providing “filler text” for “Captain America,”

written by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. It was at Timely Comics, which later turned into the famous Marvel Comics, his career in comics truly began.

Fantastic Four

The first issue of “The Fantastic Four,” was released in 1960. The characters, plot, and text were created by Lee and illustrations were done by famed Marvel artist Jack Kirby.

In the original comic, the Fantastic Four became powerful after becoming exposed to cosmic rays in outer space, per the New York Post.

“Rejecting the notion that super heroics were juvenile, Lee redefined comics by founding a team that struggled with recognizable issues.

In their first year, the FF dealt with the Cold War and bankruptcy!” Marvel said.

The Incredible Hulk

“Tortured Bruce Banner would resonate deeply with readers, particularly adults.

Lee and Kirby present another Silver Age wonder – the irradiated monster Hulk,

” Marvel describes on its website, noting the Hulk was released in 1962.

CBS turned the Hulk into a successful TV series, with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno portraying the doomed scientist from 1978-82.

Marvel says. “Finding spiders ‘spooky’, Stan and artist Steve Ditko created Marvel’s most globally recognized hero.”

A Spider-Man TV series ran briefly in 1978. The character was also featured in an animated TV series.

The “Spider-Man” film took in more than $400 million when it was released in 2002.

X-Men

when he was named publisher of the year by the Periodical and Book Association of America.
