An anonymous reader writes "Congratulatory tweets and missives pour in to honor @theRealStanLee (nee Stanley Lieber), the Romanian immigrant who created or co-created most of Marvel Comics' memorable heroes. Lee celebrated his 90th birthday on Friday. Earlier this year, someone posted a collection of Lee's cameo appearances in Marvel Comics movies, often playing an older gentleman in the crowd ('Superheroes in New York? Give me a break!'), but watch for the time he plays himself, trying to get past a club bouncer ('I'm Stan Lee. I should be on that list!')."

    @theRealStanLee (nee Stanley Lieber), the Romanian immigrant who created or co-created most of Marvel Comics' memorable heroes.

    While Stan Lee has Jewish-Romanian ancestry, he is definitely not an immigrant. He was born in 1922 on American soil, in New York City.

    I thought the definition of an immigrant was someone who had moved from their country of birth to some other country with the intention of living in the other country. It is also a legal status you attain when your application for immigrant status is approved. If you were born in a country then your are not an immigrant to that country, you are a native, depending on legalities you might not be a citizen. You could be an immigrant to several countries as you travel from place to place over the years. If you travel fast enough you aren't an immigrant, you are a tourist.
