Stan Lee was a comic book God. Along with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, he helped change the face of comics during the 1960s and after the other two had departed, he continued to grow the brand of Marvel for the next thirty years before stepping away in the 1990s.
The next twenty years saw the company he helped found grow into an unstoppable juggernaut that became one of the shining jewels in the Disney crown, before he finally passed away last November at the age of ninety-five.
The last few months of Stan's life don't appear to have been fun in any way shape or form, with former manager Keya Morgan having now been charged with elder abuse, but this should not take away from the fact that Stan Lee was one of the most important people to ever work in the industry.
With such a rich and varied life there are quite a few things about Stan that you may not know, so in celebration of his genius this list takes a look at some things about the writer/creator that you may not know.
