Stan Lee's Greatest Creations IMHO
Hello, everyone. I have been doing a lot of thinking and I have come with my opinion of what Stan Lee's greatest creations are...
Stan Lee did not create the best selling superheroes of all time (Superman and Batman) but he did create a wide variety of massively popular characters including Daredevil, The Hulk, Ironman and many more. In the 60's Lee set out to create a new brand of superheroes quite on the contrary to the hugely popular boy scouts like Superman, Captain America, Captain Marvel etc. Stan Lee created a new breed of characters that the public could relate to. These are the five Stan Lee creations that I believe stand above the others. Please enjoy, and leave your feedback in the comment box.
Daredevil, the blind vigilante who uses his super senses to stop some of the darkest crime in New York. Now, the number 5 spot came down to Daredevil or Ironman, and I had to pick Daredevil. Daredevil is one of Lee's best creations because of his Batman-esque darkness and his relatability. He is quite relatable in many ways especially to the people who have a setback or disability. They can see like the man without fear that having a curse can be turned into a blessing. Like Daredevil's blindness resulting in his other senses being super powerful. Daredevil is one of Lee's best in my opinion, and one of my favorites.
4. The Fantastic Four
The Fantastic Four, the "family" that was hit with cosmic rays transforming them into superheroes, they became known as The Fantastic Four. The Fantastic Four have been one of the most recognizable superhero team ups right up there with Justice League and the X-Men. I find the Fantastic Four to be somewhat cheesy, but extremely enjoyable. It's great to see a team with only a few members and if any one of those members is absent the team pretty much falls apart. I like all of the characters, but particularily the Thing. Thing has been one of my favorite for a long time, I really related to the character as I was growing up because as a young teenager I was larger (taller and thicker, not fatter) than all the other children. While I was bigger and stronger I wasn't coordinated enough to make any sports teams. I was called "misfit" and my long standing nickname was "chunk" I know I'm sounding like a baby, but I was like 10 years old. Anyways I related to Thing because of that and I began to love the entire Fantastic Four.
3. The Hulk
The Hulk, the massive green monster, generally (though it's debatable) Hulk is regarded as Marvel's physically strongest hero. The Hulk is my favorite individual comic book character, I think he is one of the best because people can really relate to his anger management problems. He is easily one of Marvel's most recognizable characters, I liked him for similar reasons as to why I like the Thing. But Hulk to a greater extent because I also could feel his inner rage. Hulk is one of Lee's greatest.
Spider-Man, the web slinging teen hero. Spider-Man is probably the most popular Marvel character of all time, and definitely in the top 3 superheroes of all time. Spidey is widely recognized and loved by the general public as a relatable superhero that goes through everyday problems just like every normal person. Spider-Man is awesome for his abilities, strength and skills. Spidey has shown capable of bringing down beasts like the Hulk, he is one of the most capable and relatable superheroes of all time and that's why I (and many, many others) love him so much.
1. The X-Men
The X-Men, the team of mutants that fight to be accepted in modern society. The X-Men get first place in my opinion because they have a massively wide variety of totally unique characters. Wolverine, Cyclops, Iceman, Storm, Magneto, Jean Grey, Colossus, Shadowcat and Angel to name a few are all long standing X-Men who are all totally unique and awesome in their own way. Also the biggest reason for me is that the X-Men fight the same battle we fight everyday. The fight to be accepted by society. They fight for equality and rights along with battling against those who have hatred toward them simply because they are different. The X-Men are my favorite superhero team and Stan Lee's greatest creation in my opinion.
That is all. Ant-Man, Ironman and Silver Surfer are a few other notable ones. I can't exactly say Thor was created by Lee because Thor has been around for centuries. Keep in mind that this is simply my opinion, if you disagree then voice your own opinion. Thank you for reading and as always feedback and red glove is appreciated. (though not required)
