Happy 90th Birthday, Stan Lee!
Spider-Man. Hulk. Iron Man. Thor. X-Men. Fantastic Four. The Avengers! The man who created or co-created all these legendary Marvel Comics superheroes – and pretty much helped to shape the comic books we love today -- turns 90 years young today. Happy Birthday, Stan Lee!
Born Stanley Lieber on December 28, 1922 and raised in the Bronx, NY, Lee started out as a comics proofreader before he and creative partner Jack Kirby started to conjure up epic superheroes for Timely Comics in New York, which would evolve into Marvel Comics by the 1960s.
