See how Marvel became the top super hero storyteller in special interviews.

But in 1961, after a decade of decline, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the modern super hero team with the Fantastic Four, helping to revive these stories and ushering in “The Marvel Age.” Features exclusive interviews with Lee, and Kirby’s son, Neal Kirby.
