As a lifelong comic book fan here at the PiercingMetal Command HQ, I just wanted to take a quick moment to send a shout out of “Happy Birthday” to Stan “The Man” Lee who is 90 years old today.
Stan Lee’s real name is Stanley Martin Lieber and he is most famously known for being one of the founding fathers of the Marvel Comics universe and along with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko helped to co-create Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The X-Men, The Fantastic Four and far too many more others to list right here. It’s without question that I am a fan of his creations and love that he still holds the banner high for the industry. The photo above was actually taken at the 2011 NY Comic Con at the Javits Center and it was better than the one I snared of him at the 2012 event based on my proximity to where he was. When Stan hits the convention, it is like a visit from the president and I think he deserves it all.

PS: If you are a fan of Stan “The Man” Lee, feel free to post some well wishes in our comments section below and I will try and get this posting over to his publicity team so he can see it. Maybe we will have some luck and he gets it. In any case, I raise a glass and yell “Excelsior” in his direction. Congrats Mr. Lee.
