  • He was awarded the 2008 American National Medal of the Arts for his services to comic books and production.
  • Brother of 'Larry Lieber' (qv).
  • Disliked the 1970s live-action Spiderman TV series (for which he was a script consultant), deeming it "too juvenile." He also felt that Spiderman was being treated on the show as a "cardboard character."
  • Admitted he'd always hoped to play the character of J. Jonah Jameson in a film adaptation of Spider-Man, though he conceded he was too old to even be considered by the time the film was actually made and praised 'J.K. Simmons' (qv) for his performance in the role.
  • He first began to work on comics in 1941 on the 3rd issue of Captain America.
  • Has it written into his contract that he appears in any movie based upon a Marvel character that he is credited with.

The only one he has not appeared in was _X2 (2003)_ (qv).
  • He ended his weekly "Stan's Soapbox" column (which appeared in every Marvel comic book) with the phrase "Excelsior."
