I feel like Stan Lee had achieved his life's goal because he's been working for the last 70 years and he always has been the head of his company. Now he's at the very top of Marvel Cinema and making millions of dollars per year and he's famous. His life goal was to reach the top and STAY there. So I think he achieved that.
Stan Lee started off in an apartment in Bronx,New York when he was born. He lived there with his parents and his brother. Little did he know that he had a long journey ahead of him.
In the 1960's, Stan Lee told his wife was thinking about leaving his job as editor in chief for Marvel Comics. That's when he lost faith and interest in himself. But then, his wife said just before he quits, write a story that he really liked. He didn't quit.
