“Stan Lee” was actually a pen name for Stanley Martin Lieber, who who wanted to preserve his real name for more serious stuff rather than comics for kids, and while serving in WWII, listed his occupation as a “playwright.”

Today, while fans flood the internet with tributes to Lee and his decades of lasting work, the comic book icon is best remembered  not only for his contributions to the Marvel Universe, but also all the times he joined the stories on screen.
