"With great power there must also come ... great responsibility!"Face front, true believers!Stan "The Man" Lee (born Stanley Martin Lieber in 1922) is a Comic Book creator, writer, editor, "Chairman Emeritus" of Marvel Comics and (co-)creator of just about every significant Marvel character who doesn't carry a shield, wear a skull on his chest, or have metal bones. However, how much credit he deserves for creating them — as opposed to his artist/co-writer collaborators, especially Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko — is a matter of debate.To say he's still active today, both in comics and other media, is kind of a mammoth of an understatement. Among his recent projects, he hosted the Reality Show Who Wants to Be a Superhero? and the documentary series Stan Lee's Superhumans, and has a cameo in almost every Marvel movie adaptation. He has also gotten into the anime and manga business, and is now working on two series, Karakuridouji Ultimo with Shaman King creator, Hiroyuki Takei, and Heroman with Studio BONES. He also worked on The Governator with Arnold Schwarzenegger.You might not be entirely aware of it, but he has had a YouTube Channel for quite some time now, and frankly you have no excuse to not check it out.For an examination of his writing methods, see Be The Next Stan Lee.EXCELSIOR!!
