Tag Archives: Stan Lee
Ask any true believer and they will tell you that Stan Lee is one of our nation's most precious resources. Hell, ask Stan and he'll be very happy to tell you that himself. And as hard as it is to believe given how spry and witty he still is, Stan "The Man" just celebrated his 90th birthday.
So what better time than now to look back as Lee's greatest contribution to American culture: His movie cameos.
Oh, sure, some people might argue that Lee co-creating characters like Spider-Man, Daredevil, The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and The Avengers is more of a contribution than a bunch of brief inside jokes. But for many fans, Stan's short, random appearances in Marvel superhero movies are the main reason to head to the theater. Want proof? "Iron Man 3" is expected to be one of the biggest hits of 2013 and almost all the speculation about it has centered on what Lee's cameo might be.
Okay, so we made that up. Whatever. The point is, we've got a cool viral YouTube clip right here featuring every one of Stan's Marvel cameos, all the way back to the 1989 TV movie "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk." So check it out, and join us in wishing Stan another 90 years of walk-on wonderment.

Stan the Man (as it is impossible not to call him) is not only the principal creator of all the characters in the forthcoming motion picture "The Avengers" (perhaps you heard of it) but he is also the STAR of his own movie.
"With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story" is making its debut on Epix this Friday. It is a fun and intimate look at the legendary comic creator's life and career. And it's like hanging out with that awesome Great Uncle who tells loud jokes at family functions.
