Creativity in Characters

"It's a tremendous challenge because there have been so many characters created over the years. Every time you think you come up with a great name, you find out somebody has already done it. Dreaming up the stories isn't that hard, but coming up with a good title is the toughest part." - Esquire

Lee on Success

To tell you the truth, I never thought of myself much of a success.



Lee told The Washington Post in 2010

“In never thought that Spider-Man would become the world wide icon that he is,” Lee said in an interview with The Washington Post  in 2010. 

"I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: Entertainment is one of the most important things in people’s lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you’re able to entertain people, you’re doing a good thing. When you’re seeing how happy the fans are — as they [see up-close] the people who tell the stories, who illustrated them, the TV personalities — I realize: It’s a great thing to entertain people." 


Definition of Hero in Lee's Words

"Another definition of a hero is someone who is concerned about other people’s well-being, and will go out of his or her way to help them — even if there is no chance of a reward. That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero." - Cyberspacers.
