Before landing his first writing assignments, Lee worked as a teenage sandwich delivery boy, theatre usher, and office boy. His father was a garment cutter. There were also promotional materials for the National Tuberculosis Center and advance obituaries for a news service.
He started working as an editorial assistant at Timely in 1939, which later changed its name to Atlas Comics and then Marvel. In 1941, he received his first writing credit for an early Captain America issue. In this issue, the author took on a pen name and Cap used his shield as a weapon for the first time. This action has since become a defining one for the hero.
Since the 1930s, there have been superheroes, and DC Comics took the early lead by publishing Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. However, the genre had become stale by the early 1960s.
Marvel’s staples at the period were sci-fi and horror anthologies. Marvel anthology Amazing (Adult) Fantasy’s final issue included a new character created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Steve Ditko called Spider-Man. The superhero genre was “an instant success” because to the character.
