Happy Birthday, Stan

On his birthday, Marvel celebrates the life and legacy of Stan "The Man" Lee.

One of the greatest origin stories in comic book history began on December 28, 1922. Born in New York City, Stan Lee became the architect of a universe that started with the world outside of his Manhattan window and then extended across space and time forever.

Happy birthday, Stan.
