Captain Marvel

Stanley Martin Lieber changed the face of American pop culture. Don’t recognize the name? Chop off the last syllable.

As Stan Lee -- he was saving his full name for later, when he planned to write the Great American Novel -- he created or co-created the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and – oh, yeah, Spiderman -- not to mention X-Men, Daredevil, Dr. Strange, and Thor. (Well, okay, he didn’t create Thor; Thor is the hammer-wielding Thunder God of Asgard in the Norse tradition. But Lee made him a comic-book star.)

The Marvel Comics mastermind is scheduled to appear at noon Saturday, May 2, at Dave’s Comics, Cards & Games, 963 West Elliot Road in Chandler, in conjunction with International Free Comic Book Day, not to mention the upcoming release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Lee will sign autographs and pose for pictures until 6 p.m.


Sat., May 2, 12-6 p.m., 2009
