Stan Lee was embarrassed by writing comics at first because of observing the people around him who were doctors, engineers, “proper writers”, etc. That’s why he went by the name “Stan Lee” as a pen name so he could keep his actual name for writing what he thought were proper books, though he discovered over time that his profession as a comic writer was just as profound a job as anyone else’s. I think we all can attest to that. Excelsior.
I saw a fly crawling on the wall, and I said, “Wow! Suppose a person had the power to stick to a wall like an insect.” So I was often running and I thought, “What do I call him?” I tried Mosquito Man—that didn’t have any glamour. Insect Man—that was even worse. I went down the line and I got to Spider-Man! It sounded mysterious and dramatic. And lo, a legend was born!
Rest in peace, Stan Lee (December 28, 1922–November 12, 2018)
“You know, my motto is ‘Excelsior.’ That’s an old word that means ‘upward and onward to greater glory’. It’s on the seal of the state of New York. Keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time. Nothing lasts forever.” – Stan Lee
