By the 60s, Marvel Comics and the entire comic book industry were on the brink of extinction. But Stan Lee has managed to compete with DC, having come up with a superhero team - "Justice League of America", led by Steel Man. Stan's boss, Goodman, demanded new ideas and was very happy with the new superhero team. Thus, Stan Lee's creativity began to flourish.
The 1961 debut of Fantastic Four # 1 was a huge leap forward in comic book development. Like Justice League of America, it was also a superhero team. What made his comics attractive was the combination of the reader's anger and pity for the comics. Stan Lee gave a huge boost to the comic book industry compared to his contemporaries. Soon the demand for comics began to grow.
Stan Lee continued to create superheroes. Adding more and more new heroes, he continued to improve the old ones.
In 1963, Lee published his most famous work, the hero of which was Spider-Man.
By the early 70s, Marvel had become the dominant comic book publisher. Lee has lectured in colleges.
In 1972, Lee became a publisher. He began to write less and now all the comics of the publishing house began to flaunt the inscription "Stan Lee presents".
In 2006, Walt Disney Studios announced a deal with Stan Lee's Purveyors of Wonder (POW). Under the agreement, POW will develop "entertainment products" based on its franchises, which will include books, documentaries, TV shows and games. Disney does not hide its joy at the partnership with the veteran of the comics industry - the company is confident that everything Stan touches will turn into big profits.
