Parting Shot: Happy Birthday Stan Lee and Chris Ware

Stan Lee, the co-creator of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Thor, The X-Men, and nearly every Marvel character your friends who don’t read comics are actually familiar with, is 90 years old today. Despite a recent health scare or two, Stan “The Man” continues to go strong. He is currently Marvel’s chairman emeritus, and is heavily involved in POW! Entertainment, the media production company he co-founded in 2001.

Coincidentally, December 28th is also Chris Ware’s 45th birthday, meaning the celebrated and influential indie creator — whose Building Stories is one of, if not the, most impressive works the industry produced in 2012 — is exactly half Stan Lee’s age today.

ComicsAlliance wishes both men a very happy birthday and best wishes for the new year.

Here’s a charming self-portrait of Ware:

And here’s Lee on the set of 2012’s The Avengers:
