Stan is still the man...a living legend. Nuff said.

I think he should be giving washed-up has-been tips. When was the last time Stan produced anything of significance? Ravage 2099? Yeah, that was a winner.

Um, being a bit hard on the guy who created, along with Kirby, some of the most memorable and profitable characters of any generation. Rag on him if you will, but this guy is an icon in the comics, and now, mainstream world. He was an innovator and a genius in his field. I think you are speaking out of turn. Washed up has been? Reminds me of a song I once heard...better to be a has been than a never will be. Have you contributed on the scale of a Lee or Kirby?

Why yes. I created Captain America. Never-the-less, can you tell me something in say...the last twenty years he did that warrants such adulation for his movie making skills? I find Stan to be whoring his creations from 40 years ago into any medium he can to attempt to stay relevant. It would be like if Mark McGuire were writing a book about how to play football in the NFL or how to make Baseball movies so that you dont forget he was big almost a decade ago. It gets tired, sad and pathetic.

I agree that Stan hasn't done anything relevant in a long time, but he is now and will always be "The Man." Is he shilling his work these days? Yes, but he deserves any and all attention he gets. Stan has carried the Marvel torch for so many years and the terms "legend' and "icon" are too shallow to fit what he means to the comic book genre. Just look at his body of work, the characters he created and the stories he told; he's a god among men when it comes to the comic book universe.

"Who Want's to be a Superhero". Nuff Said! Just kidding, Stan is now and forever THE MAN.

Hmm, Boombatty. Either you are Joe Simon or the ghost of Jack Kirby. It's an honor in either case.

As an elderly comic book geek I love and respect The Man greatly! But it does pain me to see him out and about nowadays. Stripperella? WTF? And now I heard he’s behind a similar vehicle for Paris Hilton!?!? Lately he seems to be the Old Guy trying to show the kids how hip he is and I gotta admit it kinda makes me sad. I am also sad to admit that my girl & I watched the whole season of So You Want To Be A Superhero and enjoyed the hell out of it. In no way does this diminish how important Stan is to the history of comic books, and bear in mind I still love the ol’coot, but for the younger folk who only know Stan as the creator of Stripperella and the guy who talked about boners with Brody in Mall Rats.. well… yeah.

I don't know to much about Stan Lee except what I've read in terms of his comics. All I have to say is that if you actually go back and read the work he's "famous" for you'll want to hang yourself. It's like going back and watching old black and white comedies. For the most part they're awful. Sure a scene here or there will move you or you'll see a flash of a brilliant character developing moment, but for the most part it's all ham fisted stuff you'd expect from 50's and 60's. I'm not saying he's not important, but I am saying the stuff we remember Spider-man for now was mainly done by guys who weren't named Kirby and Lee. So singing the praises of Stan Lee does get a little old, because seriously his stuff has gone the way of the dinosaur.
