In fact, Stan Lee is the only creator of the Avengers mentioned. Nothing for Jack Kirby, Larry Lieber, Don Heck, or any of the other original contributors.
There is one other creator credit though…
Nothing for Don Heck who co-created Hawkeye with Stan Lee, though.
It’s hardly like Marvel are alone in this however. DC seem to only provide creator credits when legally obliged to, and more DC creators have been able to negotiate such credit. But given the choice, they don’t credit.
In film and TV, it’s common for the original creators of a series to be credited, thanks to union bargaining. Right now Alan Moore seems to be manning that particular picket line alone.
