Some of you might know Stan Lee as the guy that’s made a cameo in every single Marvel movie to date. But he was much more than that. He helped create many of the characters that we see in those movies, like Black Panther, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Ant-Man. Lee led Marvel Comics for nearly twenty years, spearheading the studio’s rise from a small division of a publishing house to a corporation producing way more than just comic books. He was a huge influence on not only Marvel Comics but also the formats of comics and the way they were written. Before the 1970s, superheroes were flawless people. When you read about them in the comics, they were angelic, “Boy Scout” types whom could do no wrong. Lee, in collaboration with Jack Kirby created flawed superheroes like Iron Man to make the characters more complex, and maybe even more relatable.

 

Even after leaving Marvel in the 1990s, his influence on the industry continued on. The characters that he created were developed for movies and television and since 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has become a dominant force in the film industry, with all of the films in total exceeding a box office gross of more than $16 billion. And none of that would have been possible without Stan Lee. He may be famous for his cameos in movies, but his best cameo was the small role he played in millions of people’s lives.
