Follow by Email
STAN LEE is the famous for being the architect behind the MARVEL UNIVERSE. IRON MAN, THE HULK, THE AVENGERS, THE X-MEN, and SPIDERMAN are some of his better known characters; however, his very first superhero is forgotten. This is a short documentary about Stan Lee's start at TIMELY COMICS through the start of THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.


Marty Calhoun : In the name of Odin, may the doors to Valhalla be opened and led by valkyries, the Nine Realms mourn at the passing of the real-life superhero, Stan Lee. #Excelsior!

Anonymous Anonymous : RIP STAN, GREAT VID BTW

James Cusimano : Rip Stan lee

Josh Draws : Rip Stan Lee.. You will be missed 😢 The True Legend..

Tony Eckman : They should bring back The Destroyer. Hype him as Stan Lee's first creation. His costume looks really bad ass.

Paul Schmick : Almost 80 years at the forefront of American pop culture. What an unbelievable life. When the man who created superheroes is as famous as the creations it's not hype to say he is legendary.

Elliot Potter : R.I.P Stan Lee 1922-2018 :(

Renshen1957 : Not to steal any of Stan Lee's thunder, however it would be of interest (especially in this history) to mention that Stan Lee with Jack Kirby co-created the Fantastic Four, the original X-Men, the HulkmThor, Iron Man, Doctor Doom, Galactus, Uatu the Watcher, (the Silver Surfer was Kirby's idea), Magneto, the Inhumans and their hidden city of Attilan, and the Black Panther, comics' first known black superhero—and his African nation of Wakanda. Lee and Kirby also created The Avengers. Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko (although Kirby drew Spider-man cover art for Fantasy #15, Ditko drew the original appearance). I have great admiration for Stan Lee, however, he didn't get his portion of fame without surrounding himself with talented people.

peter blood : Nicely done. The bit at the end was hilarious. =D My first character was a robot made from old automobile license plates. His name was CARTAG. Okay it was stupid but I was only 11 at the time. Later, at 17, I came up with a dynamic duo of my own, "Dung Beetle and Stinkbug!" At one point, in the only story ever written, the villain says: "I'll beat the crap out of you Dung Beetle!" to which DB, as he was affectionately(?) known, replied: "I hope you brought your lunch because crap is my first name!"...(crickets chirping)...You can see why I was never published.

Raccoon 64 : Stan lee the closest a man will ever becoming god

dead pool : Stan Lee's first superhero was Chuck Norris. That's how the magical marvel universe was born. Each character in the marvel universe sums up the powers Chuck Norris has.

Dnice Allday : May stan Lee enjoy his success! Excelsior!

Mont Gee : Marvel should revamp The Destroyer ,and have him team up with the Marvel Knights .

Angel Maldonado : The pantheon of comic gods, Simon, Kirby, Burgos, and Lee. We may never see their like again. The majority comic hero's came from those creative minds.

George : My grand father fought in world war 2 yeara back.My dad was also in the military but drew comics now i draw comics.

Mrv V : 22 pages of content in one comic...That same content today would be used for the whole year.

Michael McLaughlin : I see shades of The Destroyer in the 1970's version of the Marvel character "Drax the Destroyer". ;)

kyokogodai : CAn you imagine how much that book rack (at 10:09) would be worth, today? To be a time traveler *dreams the big dreams*!!!

Ram story wala : Stan - Lee created a Good indian super hero "Chakra "

Sub With Twitch Prime : Rip Stan Lee T-T

Alex Phillips : I still remember The Destroyer thanks to Spider-Man The Animated Series "Six Forgotten Warriors".

Dale Baker : Wow marvel comics in 1939. Amazing.

Aaron Aiuta : Actually in my heart, Stan Lee was the first superhero

Kenny Beaumont : This is cool I love marvel

SuperPigMark Does Everything : You know, the Destroyer's design looks like the design of Drax the Destroyer in the Infinity Gauntlet story line. Maybe Stan's Destroyer evolved into Drax?

loveistruth 5*7* : Thank you for this great biography. A true American hero and icon. It shows what hard work determination and Imagination can do.F

Gia Princess : First hero To last breath R.I.P Stan lee

BUSHCRAFT SURVIVAL : I miss the legend

Kicked in the nuts : I cant wait till i be someone as big as stan Lee with my story. I just need to be known.

jjgLatin : This is great informative clip.At least,there is an Eaglemoss lead figure of Keen Marlow.There is also too many Marvel characters with the name Destroyer.

Josh Benton : Stan Lee should be a marvel hero

Anthony Anthony : Rip stan the man he has done alot for us

LarryC213 : At some point in this video you say that Stan just knew that his future was certainly not in comics. That reminds me of one of my most favorite sayings: "if you want to make God, laugh, just tell him your plans for the future."


Hayden Ysidro : Weird young stan Lee looks like Tom Holland

Jokerz 79 : To be fair in when Stan was hired 8 bucks was about 140 now so for a 16 year old in the depression era that wasn't bad. Also great vid.

Calvin Barrett : when the weirdest things in comics I ever saw which one one of the godlings or barbaric Heroes would say something like gird thy loins. it took me many years to actually learn what that actually meant.
