About Stan Lee
Stan Lee, real name Stanley Martin Lieber, is a comic book writer, publisher, editor, chairman and former president of Marvel Comics, comic book and relative media publishing company. During his years as the head of this company Stan has grown the Marvel Comics from small division into huge multimedia corporation. Stan is a co-creator of such widely known characters like Hulk, X-Man, Spiderman, the Fantastic Four, Thor, Ironman and many other our childhood superheroes. Stan Lee net worth is currently estimated at $200 million.
Stanley was born in New York over 90 year ago. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Romania. His father, a tailor by profession, could barely find a job after the Great Depression and the family lived in constant deprivation. The Liebers lived in a one room apartment, his parents used to sleep on the caught and Stan shared the bed with his brother, Larry Lieber. Just as his older brother Larry is a comic book artist and writer, although his capital is much smaller than Stan Lee net worth. For many years Larry used to work at Marvel Comics, headed by Larry and draw Rawhide Kid, The Amazing Spider-Man and other characters. In 70s he was offered an editor position in a rival company Atlas/Seaboard Comics and took the job.
He started his professional career in Timely Comics in 1939, but it was long before Stan Lee net worth started to grow. At the beginning his job was not drawing comics, but rather serving the artists who drew them. As Stan recalls, back in the day his job was to fill their inkwells, to erase the pencil marks from their drawings after these were finished and even run to the store to bring lunch for the painters, if that was what they required. Lee’s first art work was printed in 1941. It was a comic Captain America Foils the Traitor’s Revenge.
The edition was evaluated positively by both readers and Stan’s employers and soon he got more opportunities to show his talent. At the time Stanley used a nickname Stan Lee to sign his comic because he wanted his real name Stanley M. Lieber to be associated with more serious works. Eventually he decided to stick with it and even got this name written into his personal documents.
By the 70s Stan has built his career and carved his name into the history of comic books. To mention a few, his creations include Savage She-Hulk, Fantastic Four, Epic Illustrated, Daredevil, Avengers, Wonderwoman, Sandman, Robin, Flash, Catwoman and Aquamen, For the sake of truth it must be said that Stan created most of these books in cooperation with other artists, but it does not make his work any less impressive. Sadly, even fortunes as great as Stan Lee net worth can’t buy the youth. Due to his old age Stan already had to limit his work to absolute minimum.
