About Stan Lee
Stanley Martin Lieber (Manhattan, Nueva York; 28 de diciembre de 1922 - Los Ángeles, California; 12 de noviembre de 2018), más conocido como Stan Lee, fue un escritor y editor de cómics estadounidense, además de productor y ocasional actor de cine. Es principalmente conocido por haber creado personajes icónicos del mundo del cómic tales como Spiderman, Hulk, Ironman, los 4 Fantásticos, Thor, los Vengadores, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, X-Men y Bruja escarlata, entre otros muchos superhéroes, casi siempre acompañado de los dibujantes Steve Ditko y Jack Kirby. El trabajo de Stan Lee fue fundamental para expandir Marvel Comics, llevándola de ser una pequeña casa publicitaria a una gran corporación multimedia. Todavía hoy, los cómics de Marvel se distinguen por indicar siempre «Stan Lee presenta» en los rótulos de presentación. También tuvo un programa televisivo en History Channel en donde buscaba superhumanos "reales".

Stan Lee called it "the World's Greatest Comic Magazine," and he wasn't kidding. If Lee and Jack Kirby set the comics world on fire in 1961 with the debut of the Fantastic Four, in 1965 they burned it down. Letting loose an unmatched burst of rapid-fire creativity, they gave birth to the Frightful Four, the Inhumans, Galactus and the Silver Surfer — and even pulled off the first super-hero wedding! There are also monster menaces galore, including Dragon Man — and out-of-this-world villains, from the shape-shifting Skrulls to the undersea warlord Attuma. But it's not just the panel-bursting action that makes FANTASTIC FOUR great. It's the drama of a family, united to explore all the wonders of the Marvel Universe side by side!

But adventures in the microscopic world weren't enough for one of the Marvel Age's first super heroes. Soon, Ant-Man became the biggest Avenger there ever was -- Giant-Man!
