Stan Lee (1922 – 2018) was for many years the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics (and later its publisher and chairman). In the early '60s, he was charged with creating a new type of superhero to compete with those belonging to DC Comics. Under his helm, Marvel expanded from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation. Lee is best known as the co-creator of such Marvel Comics series such as X-Men, Fantastic Four, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Avengers, Daredevil and Spider-Man, many of which have been parlayed into highly successful movie and television franchises.
October 2, 2009 was declared "Stan Lee Day" by County of Los Angeles and The City of Long Beach.
His acting roles were usually just cameos, especially in the film versions of various Marvel titles. (Besides playing himself, roles include Mailman, Hotdog Stand Vendor, Security Guard, Librarian, Beauty Pageant Judge, Mental wWard patient, and Pickup Truck Driver.) He guest starred in Nikita as Hank Excelsior.
