Marvel Comics Marvel Comics is an American comic book company owned by Marvel Publishing, Inc., a subsidary of Marvel Entertainment, Inc. Marvel counts among its characters such well-known properties as Captain America, Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Blade, the Punisher, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Ghost Rider and many others. Most of Marvel's fictional characters are depicted as inhabitants of a single shared reality; this continuity is known as the Marvel Universe. The comic book arm of the company was founded in 1939 as Timely Publications and was generally known as Atlas Comics in the 1950s. Marvel's modern incarnation dates from the early 1960s, with the launching of Fantastic Four and other superhero titles created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and others. Marvel has since become one of the largest American comics companies, along with DC Comics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Comics Stan Lee, Founder, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of POW! Entertainment(Pinksheets: POWN.PK) Stan Lee's famous co-creations include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, The Avengers, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange among many others. Lee, known to millions as the man whose Super Heroes propelled Marvel Comics to its preeminent position in the comicbook industry, first became publisher of Marvel Comics in 1972 and is presently the Chairman Emeritus of Marvel Enterprises, Inc. In 1977, he introduced Spider-Man as a syndicated newspaper strip that went on to become the most successful of all syndicated adventure strips. Spider-Man now appears in more than 500 newspapers worldwide, still written by Stan -- making it the longest running of all Super Hero strips. Without question, Stan 'the Man' Lee has exerted more influence over the comicbook industry than anyone in history. He created or co-created 90 percent of Marvel's recognized characters, which have been successfully licensed and marketed since 1965. The numbers are staggering -- more than 2 billion of his comic books have been published in 75 countries and in 25 languages. In Europe alone, Stan Lee's name appears on over 35 million comics annually. Each year, X-Men sells more than 13 million copies. Stan Lee has successfully established himself as the creator of the modern day Superhero. In 1981 Stan Lee transformed his Spider-Man and Hulk creations into Saturday morning and syndicated television cartoons. When Marvel Comics and Marvel Productions were acquired by New World Entertainment in 1986, Stan's horizons expanded even further, giving him the opportunity to become more deeply involved in the creation and development of filmed projects for both the big and small screen. He supervised such diverse animated series as X-Men, Spider-Man and The Hulk. To date, Stan's characters have populated over 24 separate television series, all of which continue in syndication around the world. Movies based on a Marvel character, such as Blade ($70 million), Blade 2 ($82 million), X-Men ($157 million), X2 ($214 million), The Incredible Hulk ($132 million), and Daredevil ($102 million) have all become mega hits at the box office. Additionally, many of Stan’s other creations, such as Iron Man, Fantastic Four, Dr. Strange, The Mighty Thor and Silver Surfer are in development for motion pictures and TV series.
