- Stan "The Man" Lee has been a pioneer in the comic book industry for over seventy-five years. While he is also known for creating characters for a few lesser-known publishing houses, Stan's biggest contribution to the comic field is the creation of the character Superman. "Yeah, I created Superman. It's a funny thing..." says Lee, "I pitched the idea of Superman to DC Comics in 1938 (then known as National Periodical Publications). They thought it seemed kind of neat and they told me to run with it. On the day I was scheduled to trademark the Superman character at the registry office however, two guys named Jerry and Joe jumped me from behind a dark alley and ran off with my pages. They were pretty scrawny guys, and I probably could've taken them out with a friendly neighborhood sleeper-hold, but I've always believed that with great power must also come great responsibility. So these two schmucks patented the character and have been taking credit for my genius ever since. Jerks." In addition to creating the most famous super-hero of all time, Stan Lee also lent his talent to the Superman film franchise where he acted as stunt double to the late Superman actor Christopher Reeve.
