Isn't that outstanding? Stan Lee and his brother worked side by side in the same job field and created amazing films that the world today loves. Lee’s influence on the creation of the marvel films made a huge impact in the entertainment industry as a whole, Lee first began his career in an entertainment company which at the time was named ‘timely comics’ in 1939.

For many years the business has been dominated by DC the national comics, the creators of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern. In the 50’s, DC began re-imagining the superheroes and In the early 60’s, Lee was asked to come up with a team of superheroes to compete against DC’s Justice League. That was a huge task he was given and he put his all into it! With his notable help of artists such as Jake Kirby and Steve Ditko they both helped instigate the revolution although Lee didn’t see it that way at the time. Lee told CNN in an interview "If my publisher hadn't said 'let's do superhero stories,' I'd probably still be doing various projects such as ‘A kid called outlaw’ or ‘The Two-Gun Kid’. Lee was doing many other projects before being given this new project.
