DC's superheroes have always been godlike, especially the big three - Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Stan Lee wanted to do something different. He wanted to create superheroes who were vulnerable, who bled, got hurt, and had everyday problems.
Stan Lee, the creative dynamo who revolutionized the comic book and helped make billions for Hollywood by introducing human frailties in Marvel superheroes such as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the Incredible Hulk, died Monday. He was 95.
