Stan Lee, born Stanley Martin Lieber joined the business in 1939 as an assistant at newly-established Timely Comics and joined the army in early-1942, serving as a member of the signal corps, repairing communications equipment. He was soon transferred to the Training Film Division and worked on writing manuals, training films, slogans and cartooning.

By the 1960s, Timely had evolved into Marvel Comics and the creative collaborations between Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others managed to catapult Marvel into the minds of the young boys and girls.
