Personal History

Quote1 I'm no prophet, but I'm guessing that comic books will always be strong. I don't think anything can really beat the pure fun and pleasure of holding a magazine in your hand, reading the story on paper, being able to roll it up and put it in your pocket, reread again later, show it to a friend, carry it with you, toss it on a shelf, collect them, have a lot of magazines lined up and read them again as a series. I think young people have always loved that. I think they always will. Quote2
--Stan Lee (Brandweek, May 2000)
Stan Lee e Lou Ferrigno

Lou Ferrigno & Stan Lee

Stanley Martin Lieber (he would later change his name to Stan Lee) was born on December 28, 1922, to Celia and Jack Lieber. His ancestry is Ashkenazic Jewish. The first issue that Stan Lee ever wrote was Captain America Comics #3.

He wanted to leave around the time he wrote the Fantastic Four. The only reason that he wrote the book was because his wife told him "Do it your way. The worst they can do is fire you. And you want to quit anyways!"[1]
