Stan Lee, Marvel Comics co-creator, career highlights:
Spider-Man, Hulk, X-Men and beyond
In some comic book lovers’ eyes, Stan Lee was their very own superhero.
The Marvel Comics co-creator gave the world some of its most iconic superheroes, including the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk — just to name a few.
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.
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.
