Happy birthday to Stan Lee, who co-created many of Marvel Comics’ mainstays, including Spider-Man, X-Men, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four and many many more.  It’s safe to say that without Stan Lee, modern comics wouldn’t be what they are today.

Stan turns 88 today.  On his 85th birthday I made a list of 85 Stan Lee comic books you should read.

Let me add three more issues for the three years since then:

86. Avengers #8 — introducing the time-traveling villain Kang.

87.Fantastic Four #2 – introduction of the Skrulls

88. Amazing Spider-Man #28 – Peter Parker graduates high school, and the Molten Man is introduced.
