Comments: Prologue: Dawn of the Fantastic
Stan Lee almost quit the comics business but thanks to some advice from his wife gave it one last try. He created the Fantastic Four a comic as he wanted it to be and comics have never been the same since.
1. Stanley Lieber, New Yorker
Stan did have a hard upbringing. His family was poor so he would keep busy using his imagination and drawing his own comics. He would spend lots of time reading. He yearned for something larger than life that would lead to fame and wealth.
2. Teenage Editor
Stan started working at Timely Comics as an assistant to Joe Simon and Jack Kirby it paid eight dollars a week.
Lee first wrote Captain America in 1941 and here is were he started going by Stan Lee.
Lee co-created the Destroyer a highly successful character, his first of many creations.
3. Army Playwright
In 1942 Lee joined the Signal Corps of the United States military. He got to work with some other great artists and writers. While serving Lee still worked for Timely writing comics.
4. Return to Marvel
5. Public Enemy Number One
6. Birth of the New Hero: The Fantastic Four
7. Spidey Saves the Day!
8. Horde of Superheroes
9. Marketing the Marvel Universe
10. Creating an Icon
11. Marvel's Multitude of Maladies
12. Lure of Hollywood
13. Marvel Manipulations
14. Rise and Fall of Stan Lee Media
15. Mwanwhile...
16. Larger Than Life
Conclusion: American Icon
