Vulture: "Stan Lee came more than" – "& Hey, did you ever give me the best to think how powerful a scriptwriter can be?" Stan Lee asked in his 2002 Excelsior record: The Amazing Life of Stan Lee. And I could create people, erase people, transform people – do anything I wanted in my own small comic book context. With such power, I'm really incredible that I've been able to stay the same shy, humble, self-touched person I had ever been. & # 39;
"In these words, we see the best known comics rockers history in full spectrum. There are incredible facts of genius for writing and dialogue, for words that could waltz, jitterbug, and tango. The co-created fictional universe, which is the cornucopia of concepts and the reconstruction of the entire entertainment economy in the long run, and then it's getting complicated. "

Vulture: "The Stan Lee Universe" – "People are almost always surprised when I tell them that Stan Lee is 93. It does not scan just like a young man, but it's frozen in a while a few decades younger than him, still embodied the image more than life he created for himself in the 1970s – silver hair, tinting shades, musty caterpillars, fish crew, tied bouncing, frog Noo Yawk ancient. We expect to spread his arms along himself when describing the magic of the supermarket's fiction, or put a gap up when watching his trademark that does not follow, Excelsior! His pop culture is A lively, vigorous, 70-something grandpa, joins in movies that are cozy in films about the co-created Marvel Comics characters (well, he often says he had created , But we'll get that in a minute) 1960.

Perhaps the most important thing for Hollywood today, crafted the shared and shared concept of & # 39; between them, where characters of individual importance are franchises interacting with a fictional tape that turn to and affect each other – a blueprint that Marvel built his cinematic empire, driving almost every other studio to do the same thing weak. And that enabled comics to rise from something like cultural bankruptcy to the rough sacred status they enjoy now, such as an American kitsch legend. "

"The popular abstention is, without Lee, that Marvel's superheroes would never have been so excited about a popular culture, but in the comic book industry there is a more seasonal version of that abstention: that Lee, a long time, take most of the credit and usually leave very little spas for the co-crew, partners and artists who worked with them along the way .
