Happy 89th birthday to one of Marvel’s founding fathers, “The Man” himself, Stan Lee!

Without Stan, the Marvel Universe as we know it would not exist, and thus neither would any of us. So from the bottom of our ever-lovin’ hearts, thank you sir for boundless creativity, enthusiasm and spirit in making sure True Believers the world over had heroes to cheer, villains to jeer and countless adventures to enjoy.

Celebrate Stan’s big day with our full library of digital comics featuring his most famous work, including…

CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS #3: Stan’s first published comics work, the text back-up “Captain America Foils the Traitor’s Revenge”

FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #1: First appearance of the Fantastic Four

AMAZING FANTASY #15: First appearance of Spider-Man

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #96: Stan tackles the issue of drug addiction

STAN LEE MEETS THE THING #1: 45 years after helping to create The Thing, Stan revisits Ben Grimm

Strange. The comment by decobody reminds me how differently each of perceives the world. For me. Stan Lee has always been the voice of the spirit of marvel. Whatever the forum, be it a bullpen bulletin, his soapbox, or even a comment in a panel, he consistently appealed to the best in me. His stories always affirmed what it is that makes human beings truly human, and heroes genuinely heroic. And that voice was always more than ready and able to praise his co-creators. And that he did & does. So, Happy Birthday Stan!!!

Why is this bum being celebrated? He should be dragged into the street and beaten for what he did to Steve Ditko (real creator of spiderman). Mr. Ditko suffers, living in alleys in New York City due to the greed of Stan Lee. I sincerely hope that karma kicks in before he ruins another great artists life.

Happy Birthday Mr. Lee!!! Thank you for all your work. The Universe you created is just as captivating to this 31 year old as when he was 11 and picked up his first Spidey comic. So Until we find out that Thing is made of Peanut Brittle, Make Mine Marvel!!!
