Sold my entire collection in the late 1990s. Mostly Marvel runs of X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Fantastic Four, The Avengers, The Defenders, Daredevil, Conan, Amazing Spiderman, and many more titles. Stan Lee was a childhood hero, long before there were any big budget movies. Still have a couple boxes here at the home office, some random books, a few collectors issues and 3 “Giant-Size” issues.

Still have a few books in the office….

1940s: Stan Lee in World War II – Assignment: “Playwright”

Beginning in the 1960s, Stan “The Man” Lee wrote a monthly column “Stan’s Soapbox” in Marvel’s Bullpen Bulletins. He ended each column with the catchphrase “Excelsior!” and it became his trademark motto. Written in 1968:

Money To Burn at Marvel Comics!

“He’s a comics legend, with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When Marvel sold to Disney in 2010 for $4 billion, he personally pocketed a cool $10 million, and tours the world as its ambassador emeritus.” – Mark Ebner, Daily Beast

It was well known that Stan Lee has made a cameo appearance in every Marvel production (film, television, animation, etc.):

Stan Lee’s favorite appearance was as himself in Kevin Smith’s film “Mallrats”:

[Upon meeting Stan Lee]
Brodie : The Thing! Is his dork made out of orange rock like the rest of his body?
Stan Lee : I don’t know. It’s a superhero secret.

“Mallrats” starring Stan Lee!

Stan Lee’s final published essay appeared as the introduction to the book We Spoke Out: Comic Books and the Holocaust, by Neal Adams, Rafael Medoff, and Craig Yoe (IDW / Yoe Books, 2018). We Spoke Out features Holocaust-related comic book stories, with superheroes from Marvel: Captain America, the X-Men and Captain Marvel.
