Stanley Martin Lieber (born on December 28th, 1922), better known by his pen name "Stan Lee," is an American cartoonist, reality show host, producer, voice-artist, and actor, best known for co-creating such popular comic-book characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Daredevil, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Thor, The Avengers, and more.

Spider-Man

Stan and his fellow cartoonist, Steve Ditko, conceived the character as an orphan being raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and as a teenager, having to deal with the normal struggles of adolescence in addition to those of a costumed crimefighter. Spider-Man's creators gave him super strength and agility, the ability to cling to most surfaces, shoot spider-webs using devices of his own invention which he called "web-shooters," and react to danger quickly with his "spider-sense," enabling him to combat his foes.
