[Complete List]


  • His 3 most famous comic book creations are: Fantastic Four (Debut November 1961), the Incredible Hulk (Debut May 1962) and the Amazing Spiderman (Debut August 1962 in 'Amazing Fantasy' # 15).
  • He is credited as creating the Marvel Comics characters in the 1960s which introduced more complex characterizations for super-heroes. He also is credited for popularizing continuity to give the various series a sense of narrative flow and an interrelated common world for the characters.
  • 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."
  • He ended his weekly "Stan's Soapbox" column (which appeared in every Marvel comic book) with the phrase "Excelsior."
  • He was awarded the 2008 American National Medal of the Arts for his services to comic books and production.
  • Judy Garland's daughter Lorna Luft lived with Lee and his family for a period of time while her mother was in rehab in the 1960s. Stan's daughter and Luft were friends and Lorna stayed with the family for about a month until she went to California to live with her father.
  • Apart from his participation in the creation of the classic Marvel Comics characters, he also helped weaken censorship in the mainstream comics field. This happened when he decided to do a story about the problem of drug abuse. The story he wrote in 1971 for "The Amazing Spider-Man" concerned Peter Parker's friend Harry Osborne having a bad trip on LSD and nearly dying from it. The Comics Code Authority declared that they would not give their seal of approval to the three-issue arc on the grounds that the code, which was notorious for being draconian, would not allow the depiction of drug use even when it is portrayed negatively. Lee decided to defy the CCA and published the story as is without the seal and received healthy sales and a positive public reaction for his efforts in portraying the social problem. Soon after, the CCA changed their rules to allow for anti-drug messages in comics.
  • 1972 becomes publisher and editorial director of Marvel
