After years as the co-creator behind Marvel’s greatest creations, Stan Lee finally got to offer his own take on rival publisher DC Comics’ legendary heroes.
Why It’s Special:
Lee brought his love of alliteration to a masked wrestler Batman Wayne Williams, activist Wonder Woman Maria Mendoza and female, humming-bird powered Flash Mary Maxwell.
It also boasted some top artistic talent, teaming Lee with Dave Gibbons, John Cassaday, John Byrne and Chris Bachalo.
Classic Lee Quote:
“And I said, ‘Hell, of course it would be interesting to do, but I have as much chance of doing those characters as a snowball in hell.’"
