Happy 91st Birthday To Stan Lee


My childhood hero Stan Lee turns 91 today.

Born Stanley Martin Lieber, he is best known as an American comic book writer, editor, actor, producer, publisher, television personality, former president/chairman of Marvel Comics and fan favorite at comic conventions.

On December 5, 1947, Lee married Joan Clayton. Joan Lee gave birth to Stan’s two daughters: Joan Celia ‘J.C.’ Lee in 1950 and Jan Lee, who died three days after delivery in 1953.


At the end of September 2012, Lee underwent a surgical operation to have a pacemaker installed, telling the media he did this “to insure that he would live for 90 more years.”
