Marvel Legend Stan Lee on His ‘Amazing Fantastic Incredible' Life

With Stan Lee's 93rd birthday near, the man behind Marvel comics released a comic memoir on his life titled "Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir," NBC News reported. 

His humble origin story begins in Manhattan during the Great Depression, when he was known as Stanley Martin Lieber.

Lee has spent his career creating an entire universe of heroes and villains, and while his creations now are ubiquitous throughout conventions and fan gatherings around the world, there was a time long ago when he was embarrassed to tell people he wrote comics for a living.

"When I got into comics, they were on the bottom of the cultural totem pole," Lee said.
