At the D23 Expo, Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, put both Jack Kirby and Stan Lee into the Disney Legends Hall of Fame with some touching tributes.
Joan Lee, wife of Marvel Comics guru Stan Lee has passed away, aged 93. The British born former hat model had been married to the comics writer and publisher for 69 years.
I’m not sure when it was exactly. Or where for that matter. Some coastal town where the family retreated for a holiday. Ramsgate, Broadstairs or Margate? Maybe Portsmouth? There was a pub that provided an element of shelter on a rainy evening with a family room that provided a joyful step back in time.
The second series of Stan Lee’s Lucky Man came to a close on Sky One the other week. The British superhero show is a fun romp that has James Nesbitt’s DI Harry Clayton gain a luck-themed power through a mystic Chinese bracelet. Except sometimes his good fortune means bad luck for somebody else.
If you have been watching commercial tv in the UK this holiday season you might have noticed the odd advertisement for cat food, energy drinks and furniture cut away to breaking news of an alien incursion. All of which was a prelude to this cautionary tale of alien invasion.
The Marvel Universe has a problem and they are called the Inhumans. Okay, that’s slightly drastic — it’s not a huge problem, but it’s one that Marvel should fix: they are currently trying to put forward a slate of Inhumans comics, similar to their slate of Avengers comics or X-Men comics. Except most readers still…
When Captain America Comics #1 was released in December of 1940, America had not yet entered World War II, but patriotism and jingoism were part of the zeitgeist of America. Cap wasn’t the first patriotic superhero — he was preceded by the Shield of MLJ Comics (who would later become Archie Comics) and Cap was similar…
Born in 1922. Is there a bigger geek star out there? I mean, this guy is a marvel.
I don’t make it a habit to post these regularly but seeing the combatants I thought thenO-Deck community might find it interesting.
Do you want to know the real reason that Josh Trank was given control of the Fantastic Four movie? Why all the executive meddling? I shall show you the real reason, the truth behind all the obfuscation.
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…
So recently, I’ve been looking into comic book writers and artists who had incredibly long, unbroken runs on books. Normally, a writer may stay on for a year or two and then decide to move to another book — or an artist may be assigned another book, depending on whether one book is cancelled or put as a higher…
You’ve had your coffee. You’ve had your delicious morning pastry, which you did not offer to share with me. That’s fine, that’s fine. I’ll still give you your fact and be happy with my Cheerios, I didn’t want that doughnut anyway.
It’s no secret that the “Bullpen Bulletins,” written by Stan Lee for decades in the back pages of comic books, were filled with more hype than reality of the inner workings of the offices of Marvel Comics. Still, it stings a little for this fan to learn just how far from Lee’s rosey-tinted sunglasses things actually…
Not sure if this got posted already but its new to me! Talking to TooFab, Stan Lee talked about Marvel Films creating Inhumans film and a Black Panther film. Great news right?! I am not familiar with the Inhumans but I am excited for Black Panther. But then on the subject of a film with a female lead,
Stan "The Man" Lee might just be a walk-on in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes but, boy, he gets to rock on with unimaginable power. It's like Molecule Man and the Beyonder had a baby, and that baby was Mimic but looked like Stan Lee. I could have explained that better.
Oh thank goodness, it's just a shadow :phew:
