Stan Lee (91) was born in New York City on December 28, 1922 to Celia (née Solomon) and Jack Lieber. Stanley Martin Lieber is a writer, editor, publisher, producer and author of Marvel and some DC comics. During the Great Depression, Lee's family moved to Washington Heights, Manhattan. At the age of 9, Stan's only sibling was born: Larry Lieber. As a child Lee was always influenced by books and movies. When he got to his teens, his family was living in a 1 bedroom apartment. Lee and his brother shared the bedroom, while their parents slept on a foldout couch. In Stan's youth he enjoyed writing, hoping that one day he would be writing for "The Great American Novel."
Stanley is a writer, editor, publisher, producer, actor, television host, voice actor, and author. Lee's first published work was "Captain America: Foils the Traitor's Revenge" (May 1941). Stan Lieber later shortened his last name to "Lee" as a writer. He went on to be hired as an office assistant at Timely Comics in 1939 and became an interim editor for the company in the early 1940s. Lee also served in the Army during World War II, working as a writer, writing manuals, training film scripts, and slogans.

Stan 'The Man' Lee - Stanley Martin Lieber
From the original Spider man, X-Men, Iron Man, and Fantastic Four Series.

When he was a young man, he loved the movies, and Errol Flynn was his hero, his inspiration because of the roles he played. When Stan began writing stories, he thought about the heroes, that Errol Flynn played and how he portrayed them.
Lee idolized a man who, in his eyes, was nothing short of a superhero saying "When I was a kid, my favorite superhero was Errol Flynn, the actor. He played Robin Hood, he played Captain Blood… He was the best guy in the world with two guns, but he was always smiling and cheerful and rescuing women. I can think of nothing more fun than spending your life rescuing women."

Stanley Martin Lieber is a comic book creator. He's well known for his making of Fantastic Four, Spider-man, Doctor Strange and the X-men. He had launched Fantastic Four in 1961. He is still alive to this day at aged 91. An interesting fact is that he can't draw, but is a visionary and writer. His partner (for illustrating the characters) was Jack Kirby.
Stan Lee graduated high school at the age of 16.
Marvel Comics was previously named Atlas Comics, and before that, Timely Comics. Lee was with the company officially for nearly six decades.

Stan Lee is married to Joan Clayton Boocock. In her early years, she was a red-headed model. Lee married Joan Clayton Boocock on December 5, 1947, and in 1949, the couple bought a two-story, three-bedroom home at 1084 West Broadway in NY, on Long Island, living there through 1952. By this time, the couple had daughter Joan Celia “J.C.” Lee.She advised him to give his heroes more human being qualities, such as uncertainty, which was a huge break away from the standard at that time.

Why did we chose Stanley?
We chose Stan Lee because we thought it was really cool how he was able to create famous characters out of thin air. We think his way of thinking, writing and drawing is amazing and really creative. Comics are what most people read these days, so we thought it would be fun to research the person who actually created the characters and the stories that have been told over and over again and is well known world-wide. Lee would sometimes put his personal life into his comics. For example: his wife, Joan Clayton Boocock was his inspiration for Mary Jane (Spider-Man's girlfriend). Stan inspires little kids around the world. Once Stan created a superhero who couldn't hear for a little boy who couldn't hear. Lee showed us that even superheroes have weaknesses. Inspired by his daughter, that he should add more human qualities like uncertainty. He changed our perspective forever, he changed history forever...
Stan Lee usually gives his creations name that are alliteration. Ex: Peter Parker, Sue Storm, Happy Hogan, Green Goblin, Pepper Potts, and Dum Dum Dugan.
