  • On April 1st, 2008, Stan Lee was the Featured Article on the DC Database Project. As part of an April Fools Day prank, a supplementary "false" article was produced which included the following text:
Stan "The Man" Lee has been a pioneer in the comic book industry for over seventy-five years. While he is also known for creating characters for a few lesser-known publishing houses, Stan's biggest contribution to the comic field is the creation of the character Superman. "Yeah, I created Superman. It's a funny thing..." says Lee, "I pitched the idea of Superman to DC Comics in 1938 (then known as National Periodical Publications). They thought it seemed kind of neat and they told me to run with it. On the day I was scheduled to trademark the Superman character at the registry office however, two guys named Jerry and Joe jumped me from behind a dark alley and ran off with my pages. They were pretty scrawny guys, and I probably could've taken them out with a friendly neighborhood sleeper-hold, but I've always believed that with great power must also come great responsibility. So these two schmucks patented the character and have been taking credit for my genius ever since. Jerks." In addition to creating the most famous super-hero of all time, Stan Lee also lent his talent to the Superman film franchise where he acted as stunt double to the late Superman actor Christopher Reeve.

Stan Lee, coated with Baby Skeeter's webbing

Stan Lee (b. 1922) is a famed comic book writer, editor, and the long-time face of Marvel Comics. Lee, in collaboration with such artists as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, was responsible for the creation of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and most of the other superheroes popularized by Marvel Comics. His distinctive promotional patter, in editorials and comic covers, exhorted readers ("true believers") to look inside, and often ended with the phrase "Excelsior!" In later years, he frequently narrated, hosted, or made cameo appearances in television and film adaptations of Marvel comics.

Lee appeared in the 1989 Muppet Babies episode "Comic Capers." After Baby Rowlf and Skeeter enter the Spider-Man newspaper strip, Lee appears, hovering over a drawing desk, and takes the kids to task: "Don't you know there's only one Spider-Man?" Rowlf is apologetic ("Sorry, Mr. Lee"), but Skeeter accidentally releases a stream of webbing at Stan, coating his head with it.

Stan Lee
Biographical information

December 28, 1922




Writer, editor


Marvel Comics

Stan Lee (born Stanley Martin Lieber in New York City, New York, on December 28, 1922) is arguably the world's most famous comic book writer, having co-created the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, and literally thousands of other heroes, villains, and supporting cast members. He joined Marvel Comics in 1941 as a gofer, but soon was allowed to write (his first work was a two-page text story in Captain America Comics #3). The vast majority of his work has been for Marvel, though he has written a few stories for other companies (namely DC and their Stan Lee's Just Imagine... series, where Stan would reimagine iconic DC heroes such as Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel, and Wonder Woman).

From writer, Stan progressed to editor, then editor-in-chief before he was even 20. During World War II, he joined the U.S. Army and was sent to the Signal Corps, where he wrote and drew training manuals and cartoons; he was one of only nine men in the entire Army to be given the military classification of "playwright."

After the war, he returned to Marvel, where he would remain as editor-in-chief until 1972. Thereafter, he became publisher. For a brief period, he was president of the entire company, but found it boring as it was too much about numbers and not enough about creativity. He returned to being publisher, a title he would hold for many years. He currently holds the lifetime title of "Chairman Emeritus," lives in California with Joan, his wife of more than 50 years, and still does occasional stories for Marvel, or writing columns and introductions, always ending with his trademarked phrase "Excelsior!" Despite occasional disputes over royalties from the tie-in products based on his creations, he remains the public face of Marvel and, indeed, of comic books in general.

His involvement with Marvel Star Wars is limited but significant. He originally planned to decline making a series on the movie, believing it to be just another science-fiction film; however, after learning Sir Alec Guinness was involved, he was intrigued. This allowed Roy Thomas to talk him into it, a decision credited by many with saving Marvel Comics from financial bankruptcy. He later wrote the introduction to The Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Star Wars.
