As Marvel Studios approaches the 10th anniversary of their first film (Iron Man), there will be plenty of reflection on how the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to be. There is no Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, without the Marvel Age of Comics, for which we can thank a select few, including the greatest cameo actor of all time, Stan Lee. Today is as good a day as any to show our appreciation to “The Man,” as it is his 95th birthday!
Stan Lee, as you well know, is the co-creator of several characters that not only populate the MCU, but have also made superhero movies the most dominant genre at the box office. Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and many more can be counted among Lee’s co-creations. The same is true for characters that may soon (or within a few years at least) make their way into the MCU, like the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.
