‘NUFF SAID: THE LEGENDARY STAN LEE ON ANT-MAN, BOSTON, AND CAMEOS
July 26, 2015 By
92 years young, Stanley Martin Lieber never did quite get to write that Great American Novel.
He did something far more impactful to generations of people: After changing his name to Stan Lee, he created the Marvel Universe. All praise its name.
Before I could make out the letters, I could understand fantastic cars whizzing through the sky in the comic books he’s been behind since the Marvel Universe big-banged its way into my life and the lives of countless other fans.
The Generalissimo himself continues to reign supreme in Hollywood thanks to the blockbusters emerging from his canon of work, and he still teaches online courses, writes and creates brand new comic characters, maintains his role as chairman and chief creative officer of POW! Entertainment, Inc, and of course remains chairman emeritus of Marvel Comics. On top of that, he is a certified movie star (just don’t call them cameos anymore).
Since the man behind Spider-Man and Thor and all the rest is coming to Boston Comic Con 2015, I had roughly 10 minutes to keep a tidal wave of geek freak out in check and chat with him over the phone.
So, how are you doing?
I guess that depends on how you treat me! I’m feeling fine and looking forward to coming to Boston and meeting my friend Ken. [Ed note: Ken Bold is Guinness World Records title holder of the world’s oldest comic artist, born Aug 1, 1920, and is celebrating a birthday at Comic Con].
What, if any, are some of your memories of Boston?
When were we in Boston last? Two years ago. I have great memories of it; we went to a convention and had a wonderful time. People were terrific.
How did you feel Ant-Man went? Was it great to see it come alive on the screen?
Ant-Man was terrific: The critics loved it, the fans loved it.
THIS IS AN EXCERPT!
