Batchelor offers an eye-opening look at the life of Stan Lee, the man who created (with talented artists) many of history's most legendary characters. Becoming the editor of Marvel Comics as a teenager, and toiling in the industry for decades, Lee threw caution to the wind and went for broke, co-creating the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, and others in a creative flurry that revolutionized comic books for generations of readers.
