Stan Lee will be gone in a few months he's been pretty sick lately and at that age you don't really recover.

But then he'll be cloned, Phoenixed, ret-conned into not having died, or something.

As many fans as he has, I'm sure he's got access to top secret government gamma ray radiation and mutant spiders and anything else he needs to live past 100. He'll be just fine.

EXCELSIOR!!!!!

Happy birthday, big guy.

In before the Kirbyites come to say how Stan Lee stole the concept of birthdays from the only person who ever created anything, ever: Jack Kirby

/Without Lee (or Joe Simon) Kirby wasn't worth shiat.
//Surely Marvel will have a Life Model Decoy of Stan at the ready to replace him when the time comes. Hell, Marvel is owned by Disney now... are their Animatronics that far off from LMDs?

He'll just switch bodies with Rob Liefeld, and then when his body dies it will take Liefeld's soul with it, while Stan lives on in the younger body.

Happy 90th, Stan!

/Excelsior!
 
2012-12-28 02:43:53 PM
Not gonna lie, I hope he keeps going, at least until Denver Comic Con in about 6 months. I was stoked when they announced him but got really worried when I heard he cancelled appearances earlier this year due to illness. Hang in there Stan!

Happy Birthday!
 
2012-12-28 02:47:08 PM
I happened to be front row at a panel this year at the New York Comic Con where Stan made a surprise appearance and spoke briefly, and it almost unreal. This man transcends mere comic book and should be rightfully recognized for his role in influencing modern storytelling as we know it. When he passes on, his funeral is going to be something else, they'll need to host it at a stadium for all the nerds and cosplayers that will come out for it.

Is that from the Mask of the Phantasm? It's probably been a decade since I've seen that. Used to watch it all the time.

On my local FOX affiliate they do a Celebrity Birthday segment every morning and guess the celeb's age. Stan Lee came up and only the traffic guy knew who he was. The female anchor was just clueless as to how he's a celebrity.

The new weathergirl would have guessed correctly. Hot geeky redheads ftw.
 
2012-12-28 02:55:16 PM
I think so, Stan, but why would anyone want to see Snow White and The Fantastic Four?

Marine1: Am I the only guy who said "He's 90???" when reading that headline?


Consider... he wrote his first story for Timely/Atlas/Marvel in 1941's Captain America Comics #3. And he was over 18 at the time.
 
2012-12-28 02:57:16 PM
I heard he actually store the last ten years of his life from Ditko and Kirby.

My death pool money this year, as always, is on Brian Dennehy.

nope. He's moving around pretty well, and sounds surprisingly sharp.

His appearance on Comic Book Men was pretty fun. The guy is basically the human personification of nerd joy.

He was already 48 when he was in Dark Shadows. I'm not sure Abe can die.
 
2012-12-28 03:42:51 PM
Wait a minute. You mean to tell me Abe Vigoda's not dead?
 
2012-12-28 03:55:39 PM
Is Stan ever going to tell us if The Thing's thing is made of orange rock like the rest of him?

Mytch: Is that from the Mask of the Phantasm? It's probably been a decade since I've seen that. Used to watch it all the time.


Yes. I loved it too, as it was the best Batman movie prior to The Dark Knight in my opinion.

/In case anyone was wondering, Abe was the voice of main mobster that the Phantasm was targeting

I was pretty amazed, too. I knew he was old, but he definitely doesn't look 90.

I like the Abe Vigoda reference, too. Can't believe that guy's still alive, especially since he looked like a corpse when he did Barney Miller...

Great character actor. Even in his interviews his Tuco character came through. I was surprised he played Mr. Freeze in the Batman TV series but you could see the same character even in his interviews.

He discussed violence in movies in 1976. Some things never change.
