Who is Stan Lee's favorite superhero?

Stan Lee’s favorite character was actually Jack Kirby’s Silver Surfer. At first, Jack Kirby created Norrin Radd as a miscellaneous cosmic figure beside the giant Galactus in Fantastic Four #48. Eventually, with Jack Kirby’s help, Lee turned Silver Surfer into a herald for the Devourer of Worlds.

He earned a spot in the Cardinals’ bullpen in Spring 1980, but got off to a horrible start to the regular season (11.57 ERA & 1 blown save in April). He then entered the starting rotation, and made the finest start of his major league career on May 14 against the Padres. In seven innings, he surrendered five hits and one earned run to earn the win. On May 30, after returning to the bullpen, he struck Montreal Expos outfielder Ellis Valentine in the face with a pitch, shattering his cheekbone. He remained in the Cards’ bullpen another month until he was optioned down to Springfield to make room for Silvio Martinez’s return from the disabled list. After the season, he was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 1980 rule 5 draft.

In 1981, Thomas went 12-8 with a 3.05 ERA and 111 strikeouts for Oakland’s triple A affiliate, the Tacoma Tigers, but did not see any major league experience. After the season, he was dealt to the Seattle Mariners for minor leaguers Tim Hallgren and Rusty McNealy.

He spent his first Spring with his new club in the majors, but was shipped to the triple A Salt Lake City Gulls just as the 1982 season was set to begin. He successfully made the club the following Spring, and spent his first full season in the majors in 1983, when he went 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA and 77 strikeouts in 43 appearances. His 88.2 innings pitched was tops for a right hander on the club.
