In 1961, Stan Lee teamed up with artist Jack Kirby to create the humanly flawed super-hero team 'The Fantastic Four', changing the face of comic books forever. Stan and Jack followed up by going on a creative rampage, introducing mega franchise characters like: 'The Incredible Hulk', 'The Mighty Thor' and 'The Uncanny X-Men'. Then, in 1964, Stan teamed with artist Steve Ditko to create a teenage super hero, who had real teenager problems - a hero who would lose as much as he would win. 'The Amazing Spider-Man' soon became, and would remain, the most popular comic book character in the world.
