The month of August 1961 is a time frame steeped in comic book publishing lore. According to Marvel legend, the publication of Fantastic Four #1, which arrived in August 1961, was the result of Stan Lee's wife, Joan, convincing him to create one more comic before he considered leaving the business. This led to the birth of the Silver Age of the MCU, and the rest is history.
