There’s a new a virtual reality app named Hindsight VR that currently allows people to “join” Stan Lee at Comic-Con, no matter where they happen to be. It’s all fine and dandy, but there’s been an even bigger breakthrough as a result: Technically, Virtual Stan can attend every single Comic-Con from now until the end…
Or so wonders Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, who says the actor’s performance as Peter Parker has blown him away in a manner that neither Tobey Maguire not Andrew Garfield managed. “I can’t believe it,” Lee gushed at the recent Denver Comic Con. “It’s as if we created a living being to be Spider-Man, and it turned…
Stan Lee es una de las personas más importantes en el mundo de los superhéroes y los cómics en general. Es responsable de la creación de tantos personajes que es imposible no conozcas su nombre. Ahora, a sus 93 años de edad, ha confesado cuál es su película favorita basada en un cómic, y no podría haber elegido mejor.
Even after Stan Lee left Marvel, he never stopped creating superheroes and now one of those newer creations is coming to the big-screen. The animated superhero Chakra the Invincible is turning into a live-action Bollywood movie.
Comic Con is headed to Tokyo, courtesy of Steve Wozniak. It’s the first time the convention will ever be held in Japan, and it’s planned for December 2016. It’s going to be a sister event to the Apple co-founder’s Silicon Valley Comic Con, and the Woz himself appeared in Tokyo last weekend to get people excited. In…
This is the point we’ve reached now. Hot Toys has made so many eerily accurate replices of Marvel’s movie superheroes, they’re now turning to a man who played a role in some of their creation stories for toy inspiration. Yes, now even Stan Lee is getting immortalized in plastic. Excelsior!
Hey, folks! Sorry to dispense with my normal nonsense, but I got a really important letter that I‘m very excited to share. I don’t get a ton of letters dealing with real issues, but I’m always happy to try to help. If you only read this for silliness, don’t worry—there’s still an insane Mad Max theory and the world’s…
The Fantastic Four is one of my favorite teams in comic books. That is because, essentially, they aren’t a team, they are a family. Two of them are siblings, two of them are married, two of them have been best friends for years. They bicker, they squabble, but at the end of the day, they have each other’s backs and…
Los fans de los cómics llevan años debatiendo sobre quien ganaría en un combate entre Batman y Superman. Ambos héroes se han medido el lomo más de una vez, y la próxima película de Batman V.

Hace algunos días se dio a conocer, gracias a las filtraciones de contratos entre Sony Pictures y Marvel, que Spider-Man no puede ser ni negro, ni mujer ni gay en las películas. En una entrevista, Stan Lee aclara por qué, según él, esto tiene sentido, y no tiene nada que ver con racismo ni nada por el estilo.
After many years helping to create superhero icons alongside the likes of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and many other creators, Stan Lee is getting the honour many of his characters have had for decades: An action figure! It is, of course, as wonderful and as weird as a Stan Lee figure should be.
Let’s all be glad Stan Lee is still alive. Let’s all be sad that the words “Stan Lee” are still appearing in front of new things.
How have Stan Lee's ideas about superpowers changed as he's gotten older? In this sketch from Key & Peele, the Marvel Comics creator pitches several new characters based on his more recent frustrations and desires.
What do you get as a present for Stan Lee, the man who has a cameo in every Marvel movie? How about a sculpture of his face fashioned into a cameo jewel? Someone commissioned this Stan Lee cameo as a gift for Lee and you can buy one for yourself.
There's a rumor going around that Stan Lee, who has managed to cameo in almost every Marvel movie including those made by Sony and Fox, is not just playing random characters but is instead Uatu, the cosmic alien known as The Watcher. This rumor is dumb, and this compilation of Lee's cameos proves why.
Updated! Apparently Disney didn't forbid the scene, because they never saw it. Director James Gunn took to Instagram to clear up the story. It boils down to this: He shot it with a double (seen in the pic below) but before the real Stan could film it, decided it was too similar to Star-Lord's finger gag. Good call!
The answer depends on how much you think Stan Lee knows about Marvel's movie plans. But he said it was happening at Fan Expo Canada.
In 1963, George R. Martin (who, at that age, had yet to earn his second "R") wrote to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in feigned praise of Fantastic Four #17, an issue he refers to, dryly, as "greater than great... absolutely stupendous, the ultimate, utmost!" Proving that even as a boy, GRRM was an acerbic, 65-year-old man.
We've seen numerous western superheroes drawn in the styles of Japanese manga artists, but what if famous Japanese characters had been designed by American artists? Jack Kirby's take on Akira might have been an American version worth looking at.
