Stan Lee, 1925 Stan Lee was born in 1925. He joined Marvel Comics in the early 1940's and has remained there for 60 years. He is the creator of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, and has more than 2 billion comics books featuring these well known characters in print. While employed at Marvel Comics, Lee signed a contract that prohibited him from working for any company besides Marvel.

Lee also signed a deal with DC Comics to revamp some of their signature characters, including Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.
