"I knew for years that Stan had served in the Army, it’s a matter of public record," said Jones. "But in December I was reading an article, it was about Stan Lee, they specifically mentioned that he served in the Signal Corps. I reached out to ask if Stan was already a member, and they said that he wasn’t so I proposed that we make him one."

Lee is a former publisher of Marvel Comics, and he is the co-creator of the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Daredevil and the X-Men.
