Marvel Day is celebrated on the birthday of Stan Lee. It is the day to get your geek on and show your Marvel Fandom!
Most people know Stan Lee as the creator of some of Marvel Comics' most iconic superheroes, but his influence on the comic book industry reaches far beyond the pages of his own comics.
Lee got his start in the comics industry in 1939, when he was hired by Timely Comics (a predecessor to Marvel) as an assistant editor. He would go on to co-create some of the most famous comic book characters of all time, including Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, and Black Widow.
In addition to his work as a writer and editor, Stan Lee was also a prolific promoter of Marvel Comics. He was instrumental in the creation of the Marvel Universe, a shared universe in which all of Marvel's characters existed. He also helped to create some of Marvel's most iconic marketing campaigns, including the "Marvel Method" and the now-famous "Stan Lee Presents" credit.
Stan Lee's contributions to the world of comics are immeasurable. He was a true pioneer in the industry, and his influence is still felt today. In honor of his birthday, let's celebrate Marvel and the best moments in Stan Lee's career.
