In 1939, a 16-year-old boy named Stanley Lieber started working as an assistant at Timely Comics, and the world of superheroes would never be the same.
As he swiftly rose through the ranks, Lieber adapted the pen name Stan Lee. By the time he was 19, Lee was interim editor of the publishing company’s comic division, and before long, he was the editor-in-chief.
Over the years, Timely Comics would eventually become Marvel Comics, and Stan Lee would go on to become editor-in-chief, publisher, president, and chairman. The rest, as they say, is history.
Today, Stan Lee is one of the most famous names in the comic industry, and one of his signatures moves is making a cameo in every Marvel movie. These cameos are hilarious nods that keep the comic mastermind present and popular among his fans.
