Think of some of your superhero favorites…Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, Hulk, the X-Men, Thor and so many other legends in the superhero realm—Stan-Lee revolutionized the comic book world and entertainment industry with his lineup of pulp-fiction heroes that has come to define much of popular culture in the early 21st century.
At 17, Lee landed a job at a publishing company owned by his relative Martin Goodman. During this time, he wrote scripts for superhero and mystery comics. Two years later, Lee was promoted to editor-in-chief at just 19 years old. Within a few short years, he evolved a once small publishing company into what we know as Marvel Comics.
He transformed the comic book world by imbuing its characters with human qualities that many can relate to—from self-doubt and insecurities to a sense of humor and need for love. Lee tried “to make them real flesh-and-blood characters with personality,” he told The Washington Post in 1992.
