4. Stan Lee was in the army
Stan Lee didn't have his editor position at Timely Comics long before he headed off to join the war efforts in 1942. His first assignment was with the US signal Corps, where he repaired telegraph poles and other communication equipment.
Later he would utilize some of his creative talents, joining the training film department where he wrote training manuals, slogans and cartooned occasionally.
His military classification was that of "Playwright," which was only given to nine men in the service at the time.
