Birth of Stan Lee

スタン・リー

引用:Rich Polk/Getty Images for Entertainment Weekly

Stan Lee, former chairman and chairman of Marvel Comics, has died at the age of 95.

Born in West End, Manhattan in 1922. As a boy, he enjoyed many movies and books regardless of genre. He liked to write, and in 1937 he entered the New York Herald Tribune essay contest, where he won two honorable mentions.

He was living in New York when he started doing comics at the age of 17. In 1939, he joined Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics). He started working for the president, Martin Goodman (his uncle), where he ran errands and helped around the office. He was appointed as an assistant editor, and he soon began working on original comics.

In 1940, at the tender age of 18, he was promoted to editor-in-chief by showing his fertile imagination.

In 1942, he served in the U.S. Army for three years, and when he became known as a comic writer (though still unknown at the time) to the military, he was assigned to the screenwriting department of educational films, training manuals, current affairs comics, and posters. I made

After being discharged from the military, while his colleague Joe Simon and others were recruited by DC Comics, he was asked by his uncle’s president, “I want you to edit until a replacement is found.” We mass-produced a wide variety of works such as melodramas.

In 1961, the horror, horror, and sci-fi comics released in the 1950s were sluggish, so he decided to change direction, and decided to go bankrupt and put as much realistic elements into superhero comics as possible.

In 1961, “Fantastic Four” was launched.

This gained popularity, and over the next few years, he released numerous superhero comics that became Marvel Comics’ masterpieces in rapid succession with artists such as Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.

Stan Lee and Kirby created iconic characters such as Hulk, Thor, and the X-Men to form The Avengers, while Lee and Steve Ditko created Spider-Man.

1962, Hulk, Thor

1963, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, X-Men, Avengers

In 1964, the revival of “Daredevil” and “Captain America”!

 

Marvel surpassed DC Comics as the top comic company by 1967, and Stan Lee became Marvel Comics’ publishing director (president) in 1972. I decided that there was a need, and immediately declined.

Marvel Studios begins

Stan Lee traveled to California to serve as president of Marvel briefly, hoping to bring more American heroes to the big screen.

Stan Lee faced skepticism at first, but he didn’t give up.

Originally called Marvel Films, Marvel Studios had a rough start, but found success with the hits “X-Men” and “Spider-Man” in the early 2000s. 2008’s “Iron Man” set Marvel Studios on the path to success. The following year, Disney acquired Marvel Studios and turned it into a multi-billion dollar movie series.

 

Outsourcing = Marvel Method

At one point, Stan was almost the only writer for Marvel Comics, and at times he was in charge of writing 82 comics a month. The “Marvel Method” was born by chance from such a situation.

This is the so-called outsourcing policy. community.

In order to share the work seamlessly with the artists, Stan first handed over only the plot of the story, and when the drawings were completed, he put in specific dialogue.

The quality of the work has improved compared to before, and the sales of comics have increased since the introduction of this outsourcing.

The charm of Marvel works

After all, various heroes are in the same world. exist at the same time.

Marvel’s American heroes live in real cities.

This is the complete opposite of rival publisher DC’s heroes, with Batman living in Gotham City and Superman living in a fictional city called Metropolis.

Also, Marvel heroes are often weaker in character and status than DC heroes.

To give an example of the humanity of Marvel heroes, Iron Man, for example, is a millionaire, a super genius, and a playboy.

Peter Parker, the content of Spider-Man, is also troubled by love and relationships, and sometimes he is troubled by work.

I think that even in the movie, the charm of the human characters drawn in the original work comes out.

lastly

American heroes born in the 1960s. Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, X-Men, Avengers, Daredevil, Captain America.

Heroes who do not fade even in the present age of 2022. More than 50 years have already passed, but it is loved by people all over the world!

Many successful people who have made great achievements agree. “I was able to continue because I liked it. 』

If you are only looking for money, fame, and glory, you will quickly give up after failing in just one business or job.

I believe that it is precisely because we are able to continue with enthusiasm that we are able to achieve such success.

Of course, how you perceive this is up to you.

I would be happy if you could refer to it even a little.

Thank you for reading to the end.
