The Creative Mind That Took The Marvel Universe To Billion Dollar Movies!!

With the passing of Stan Lee on Monday at the age of 95, we don't just say goodbye to the face of the Marvel brand, but also the man of 1,000 cameos. The former president and chairman of Marvel Comics is known by many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as the guy who shows up in the majority of the movies released by Marvel Studios since 2008's "Iron Man." But he started doing cameos long before there were superhero movies.  Going as far back as the 1960s, Lee's likeness would be inserted occasionally in covers and inside the pages of the Marvel comics he was overseeing. And from what Lee told Business Insider back in 2015, it was never his intention to pop up in all things Marvel.  "The artists back then would draw me in as a joke or just to have fun," Lee told Business Insider then. "And I would put some dialogue balloons there and it looked as if I intended it. I didn't try to do cameos in those days."
