Who’s Stan Lee?
Since Rush just sales Tea and kids’ Books these days, they figured Stan Lee sales more comic books than Rush’s Tea and Books combined. Maybe.
He’s a Kung Fu actor.
stan lee? paaaaaaleeeeze what a fake.
he is just about the money and even sold the rights to his name. lost all his lawsuits and only makes money from lame cameos.
Like you I have never heard of him.
Yeah. I never heard of him.
I’ve never heard of Stan Lee.
I used to read Lee’s comic books as a kid but his movies don’t interest me, seems like kid stuff.
Ironically its similar with Rush,
Have you heard of Spider-Man?
I actually think that’s fair. Rush shouldn’t even be on the list; labeling him as a celeb rather than a political commentator and influencer diminishes his work over the last 20+ years.
Lee? Isn’t he the guy that used to write the one-page text stories in “Marvel Mystery Comics” in the days before World War 2?
A comic book writer. Created Spiderman and a whole host of others.
Stan Lee has been on the public scene thirty years longer than Rush has.
Ha! I just rescued a little old Maltese dog on Saturday, we named him Stan Lee after this guy because we like Big Bang Theory and those guys revere this writer of comics.
