Is Stan Lee The Watcher Of The Marvel Universe? No, Dammit. Here's Why

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.

Good call! » 9/02/14 6:42am 9/02/14 6:42am

Read George R. R. Martin's 1963 Letter To Stan Lee and Jack Kirby

New Marvel Game Gives Stan Lee Eleven Super-Powers. And Immortality.

No one likes to think about it but there will be a day when Stan Lee’s cameos will end. He may be an indefatigable 90-year-old but the co-creator of The Fantastic Four, Hulk and Spider-Man is still only human.

Here's Stan Lee's latest sad superhero-based project

Some people get annoyed at Stan Lee's cameos in all the Marvel movies, but not me. Because I know that when Lee is filming those appearances, he's prevented from making the irrelevant, depressing, terrible, generic superhero-based projects with which he's filled the last 20 or so years of his life. Like his latest,… » 11/30/12 9:00am 11/30/12 9:00am

As part of his 1992 Comic Book Greats VHS series — which featured (deep breath) such luminaries as Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Jim Lee, Whilce Portacio, Will Eisner, the Romitas, Sergio Aragones, and Jack Davis and Harvey Kurtzman — Smiling Stan Lee asked Rob "X-Force" Liefeld and Todd "Spawn" McFarlane to invent a… » 12/10/11 9:45am 12/10/11 9:45am
