The way we see our superhero world today has all been shaped from the revolutionary work of Stan Lee. Stanley Martin Lieber was born New York City. Throughout his life, he created many stories to share with the world. He watched them thrive as he had found his target audience. Marvel Universe has created 20 films that have made over $17 billion dollars worldwide. Sadly, he fell ill in October and passed away November 12, 2018. He was an editor, producer, and a comic book author. He shared, created, and reinvented many of the superheroes that we grew up with.

Our parents grew up with the comic books but Stan made them into something our generation to grow up with too. He created the Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and the X-Men. Now almost all of these characters have had their turn in the spotlight starring in their own movies an tv shows.

Besides finding a new way to bring out the life in superheroes, he was also known for his cameos in various Marvel movies. He made a cameo most recently in the DC movie “Teen Titans Go To The Movies”. Although it is a DC movie it was taken well and people loved it. You can see him as the bus driver in “Avengers: Infinity Wars”.

Apart from the movies, Stan wrote comics too. A lot of his comics were based on our real-life heroes from the civil rights act. The best example of that idea was the X-Men. Beginning September 1963, the X-Men were a team of teenage mutants, led by their Professor Charles Xavier. The team leader was Magneto. These stories were all based on the battles we faced as a nation. The battles were more good and evil, rather than black and white.  Their problem was that mutants were hated by the people they defend.

Because of Lee, our superhero world will never be the same.
