In before the Kirbybots who don't realize that without a good co-creator like Lee or Joe Simon, Kirby's work was shiat.

Reddit's Ask-Me-Anything feature is a fantastic idea.

Too bad their format is sh*t and utterly unreadable.

I just want Lee to STFU and go away. His shameless self-promotion is tiring.

Every time I see him doing something all I can think is "He used to be someone! And now look at him, all he is is this.". And, to be honest, I kind of think that's the saddest fate of them all.

Stan Lee is a national treasure. I don't care what the haters say, he created some of the most recognizable fictional characters today and is making millions of people happy with his work.

Oh, bollocks.

Forever People number 3 is one of the best comics of all time and it contains one of the best single pages ever.

But I am the revelation!

Am I reading the headline wrong or is it all kinds of farked up?

So is uproxx just a Reddit aggregator? It seems like every uproxx link that get's posted to Fark is sourced from Reddit.

Took some getting used to but I like it way more than fark. It's much more compact. Even just the ability to click the tiny little minus icon on someone's post and collapse it and all the replies to it is a vast improvement over fark's vertical scrolling, non-threadedness.

You can follow a reddit post that has 3000 replies easily. With fark submission of that size, it's all the replies mixed together serially and pagedown after pagedown after pagedown...

The karma thing is useful only because the crappy replies are automatically collapsed. With fark, you have to ignore the user.

Stan lee is a perfect example of being famous without being jaded. He sincerely enjoys every second of it. Call him a self promoter if you want, I call him awesome.

Did anyone ask him why he claims to have created all of these superheroes when in all actuality all he did was spout off some idea and have someone else do the work only to have him get the credit? I could spout off tons of ideas to incredibly creative talent and have one stick too. Sorry, Stan Lee, you aren't as important as you would like to believe. Facts are facts. See, I'm not trying to hate on the guy. Every creative person needs an editor. It's just that you don't say you created this person and that person. You say "Myself and____ created" You don't say "When I____" you say "When myself and____" Nobody likes a credit hog. It's even annoying when Don Draper does it. I will give the man his credit. Without him comic books today would not exist as we know it. Thing is, who is to say that the superheroes wouldn't have been created eventually? It isn't that original if you stop and think about it. Yes, Stan Lee, you are an American Icon. You just need to be a little more honest and humble.
