Disney Commemorates Stan Lee’s 75 Years at Marvel

1

The Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, recently presented Stan “The Man” Lee with a one-of-a-kind bronze statue to commemorate the legendary comic book writer’s 75-year career at Marvel.

The bronze features Spider-Man, one of Lee’s most famous co-creations (in collaboration with Steve Ditko), alongside Mickey Mouse, a nod to Marvel’s acquisition by Disney in 2009.

Since Disney’s purchase of Marvel, the two entities have found plenty of shared box-office success with record-setting films like “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Many of the characters in these Marvel Studios’ films were co-created by Lee, including Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Stan Lee has worked in the comics industry since he was a teenager, where he got his start as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939. He is primarily known for his foundational work at Marvel, alongside artists Jacky Kirby and Steve Ditko. With these collaborators, he had a hand in creating the X-Men, Fantastic Four and other staples of Marvel’s IP stable. For his achievements, he received a National Medal of Arts in 2008, and was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.
