Stan Lee interview: "The world always needs heroes"

Some of the world’s most recognisable names, faces and outfits belong to the likes of Spider-Man, Iron Man, the Hulk and the X-Men. These pop culture icons – and legions more – come from the imagination of one man, Stan Lee. Stanley Martin Lieber was born in New York in 1922 to Romanian-Jewish immigrants. At 16 he joined Timely Comics (which evolved into Marvel) and by the age of 18 he was editor. During the Second World War he was a member of the Training Film Division based in Queens (pictured below), a group of nine men who created posters, films and other propaganda material. After the war Stan Lee created characters like the Fantastic Four and X-Men through the 1960s, and revolutionised comic books. Having just turned 93, he shows no signs of slowing down.

You have long believed being lucky would be the best superpower to have. A costume does help when it comes to Halloween. Why is luck the ultimate superpower? Does he always have to win? L'histoire secrète de la rivalité entre Marvel et DC Comics. L'HISTOIRE SECRÈTE DE LA POP CULTURE 2/22 - Les deux maisons d'édition s'affrontent farouchement depuis les années 1930.

L'histoire secrète de la rivalité entre Marvel et DC Comics

Longtemps cantonné aux albums, ce duel a récemment débarqué au cinéma. D'un côté Marvel: Captain America, Daredevil, Hulk, Iron Man, les Quatre Fantastiques, Spider-Man, Wolverine. De l'autre DC Comics: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, The Flash, Aquaman. Deux équipes, toujours aucun vainqueur. Depuis les années 1930, les deux maisons d'édition s'affrontent farouchement et rivalisent d'ingéniosité pour séduire des milliers de lecteurs. Contrairement au milliardaire Batman, à l'extraterrestre Superman ou à la princesse Wonder Woman, les héros de Marvel sont profondément humains. Ils partagent ces caractéristiques avec d'autres héros Marvel comme Ant-Man, qui sera successivement schizophrène, voleur, égoïste et menteur, le marchand d'armes Tony Stark/Iron Man ou Bruce Banner, devenu le géant vert colérique Hulk à la suite d'un accident.

Pop Culture Propaganda – Captain American History!

The great depression was a time of unprecedented poverty. Starvation struck Americans struggled to survive very harsh times in any way they could. This bred desperately enduring working class civilians under the emerging war clouds, grim and gloomy, over Europe. The economy imploded. The iron fist of the Nazi party was starting to pummel their way through country boundaries. Don't be a sauerkraut! You didn’t need psychic mutant power to sense the brink of world war; you just had to have common sense. The Golden Age first ever appearance of the Gestapo-smasher! Jewish writer Joe Simon predicted his country needed a hero in shining golden back-light. First appearing in 1941’s self-titled Captain America Comics #1, Steve Rogers was a sickly wannabe soldier selected to be a rousing emblem – on and off the page! In a rather anticlimactic process, Roger’s was originally injected with the Super-Soldier Serum.
