Throwing back a little, Lee created The Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics, and went on to create titles including Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk in 1961. He began working at the comics section of Timely Publications and became comics editor there at age 18. Not long after that, Timely Publications was renamed Marvel and the golden age of comic books had begun. In its heyday, Marvel sold 50 million copies a year. Until he retired from editing in 1971, Lee wrote all the copy for Marvel’s covers.

So long, Capt!
