Everybody knows Stan Lee as the adorable old grandpa of the Marvel universe. He appeared in the normal film cameos that have made him one of the highest grossing screen actors ever. However, that is just the most recent period of a comic profession that began in 1939. Over those eight decades, Lee’s gathered a striking list of accomplishments and changed comics forever. Nevertheless, here are some untold truths about him that many Marvel fans won’t know about. Here goes……
1. Changed His Name Because Of Embarrassment
Lee initially began his career as a gofer and filled inkwells. However, he soon began writing for the company. At the time, he expected his profession in comics would be fleeting and didn’t want his name to be connected with such a lowbrow fine art, since it would’ve damaged his aspiration to wind up a novelist. Subsequently, he adopted “Stan Lee” as a nom de plume. Ironically, his comic writing made him a big name under his alias. Thereafter, he legitimately embraced it as his genuine name.
2. Relative Of Marvel’s Founder
Stan Lee was born as Stanley Martin Lieber in 1922, which was the ideal time to enter the workforce amid the Great Depression. He was constantly intrigued by writing and made some cash in school by drafting pre-emptive obituaries for well-known individuals the papers thought may die soon. When he turned 18, he landed a job with Timely Comics, which later changed its name to Marvel. At the time, Martin Goodman was the owner of the company. He was married to Lee’s cousin. However, Lee assured that Goodman had no clue he worked there until they had a chance meeting in the hall, despite the fact that Simon says that can’t be true, since they didn’t have a hall.
