Stan Lee Wanted Us To Forget About These Comics Forever

  • Published on Jan 19, 2019
  • Stan Lee may be a comic book legend, but even he had his share of epic misfires over the decades. As fans around the world commemorate his life's work, there are a few comics getting attention that he'd probably wish had stayed forgotten.

      I said HI! at his last Phoenix, AZ comic convention, and he smiled back!

      Being the 1st person out of millions at a convention to Ignore the "Don't speak to Stan Lee" sign at his signature booth, i said softly "Thank You Mr Lee" nothing more., He looked up clearly tired (was 1 of his last conventions he did & later found out they really had been working him like a dog) he gave a small smile, the look in his eyes I think he was genuinely touched at some humanity...... funnily enough the queue behind me started saying thank you. Good thing I did, since I was supposed to meet Stan Lee face to face, but the Convention had treat him so badly, he according to his agent basically had a break down (behind scenes) and so the meet and greet we'd paid for was basically cancelled.

    Stan Lee didnt create any of the comics so of course theyre terrible ideas! That's why he had Jack Kirby for. He drew, wrote, etc the entire comics with little to no input from Stan. Stan just thought up the idea of "To Be Continued" and getting rid of one shot comics. Back in the day that alone changed comics forever and he started a comic book company. Jack Kirby was the idea guy/ artist/ writer along with Ditko. Stan made sure he got all the money and stole half the credit when he did nothing to create the characters or comics and gave no royalties. He was also a fantastic promo guy and people thought he created everything at marvel since he loved the spotlight. Kirby was too busy drawing and creating universes. Stan also created the idea that all the different comics would be part of the same universe. So, He stole credit from everyone and didnt pay them right leaving many poor and suffering while he lived it up, but he also promoted comics and did his best to make people take comics seriously. He was a great salesman/ promoter and cut-throat businessman. It took many years after their deaths before Stan would allow Jack or Ditko to get any real credit or paid the way they/their families, should. He's the Thomas Edison of comics.

    Paste pot pete in 1966(marvel super heros tv show)helped iron man solve baron zemo,s adhesive x... this character was more along the lines of a regular human not just some evil super genius or alien... perhaps more boring from a comic character but great name,fantastic artwork... marvel at its hight and best

      And if a stripper actually pitched this idea to Lee then that's even cooler. Striperella wasn't bad I liked how they incorporated WWE's Vince McMahon as a regular on that shoe and a few other wrestlers I think as well.

    Well Spider-Woman & Stripperella Got the shaft, while DC-Stan Lee Batman version got fisted, Does any body remember MOSAIC 2006 voiced by Anna Paquin or THE CONDOR, 2007 voiced by WILMER Valderrama, for two minutes Stan Lee had the Midas touch , Nothing last forever, Next most likely the MARVEL publishing Company.

    I love Stan Lee, but he was, for the large part, a terrible writer. He'll be remembered for his pioneer creations (most of which were made better by other writers and artists), but for every good idea he had, there were a dozen awful ones.
    Not that there's anything wrong with that - in fact, it's very healthy. If you don't keep trying, you won't get the good stuff.

    The best Trapster story is in the novel _Ultimate Super-Villains_ where he sells his glue on TV, makes a fortune, finds love, and lives happily ever after.
    ps... _Stripperella_ is awesome and should be remembered fondly since the cartoon is really fun as an R-rated Adam West Batman show.

    I'm sorry but you can't rip off something you originally made or own..What a stupid comment.
    Also just because one of stans dc reimaging books wasn't so good it doesn't mean the others he did were or he even regretted making them.

  • apex2000

    Hay having your race changed in exchanged for super powers..... there much more undesirable things that could happen to you in the acquisition of super powers. Also yeah sudden unexpected physical metamorphosis of any kind even on a small scale gonna be alarming to a person. Also because they are surprised doesn't mean they are a racist. Just means they caught off guard by suddenly having a different body. (Most of us are pretty used to how our body works and looks, given that we ain't Polymorphs)

    I could see (hyper) Glue as a great weapon for a villan who doesn't necessarily wanna murder people, just incapcitate..... but does give the option, ya know smothering, drowning etc. it can have lot of utilities much like how comics depict ice powers.

    First off, this lady character might not of been a huge hit when she first originally appeared, and to add when she appeared a second time.
    But that doesn’t mean that she can’t be any good for this generation, and to add with a new twist to a brand new story telling of her; Well this female hero might just surprise everyone, and to add might become a big hit with all of the potential young girl fans as another new female hero to admire & respect as well.
    So hopefully someday somewhere down the line the female character hero (SPIDER-WOMAN) might be possibly make her appearance in a movie of her own which would be an origin story, and then much later hopefully she could make her appearance in a (SPIDER-MAN)movie, or maybe she might be able to make her appearance in a future movie project of a future new chapter of an (AVENGERS) movie.
    Plus to add maybe the ComicBook story of the science-project mutant female character hero (SPIDER-WOMAN) might be sold to some unknown other ComicBook entertainment movies industry someday down the line to some people who might be really interested in it.

    Wolverine was also supposed to be a wolverine evolved by the High Evolutionary, but that got nixed as a direct result of Spider-Woman.

    So, Stripperella is bad because it's about a stripper? I mean, I'm no fan of it, but can you give some actual reasons why it is bad, other than your apparent bias toward strippers? Also, the idea that Stan Lee's "BatMan" was a rip off of spider Man because they both may have been wrestlers at one point is also assuming that Spider Man is a rip off of Super Man because they are both reporters.
    I can see your bias all over this video. Please do more research,and write more than one script before your next video

      @Jacob Walraven Fair enough. I suppose i meant to say that he also worked for a news paper. I don't follow Super Man because he (although was the inspiration for most super heroes) is an extremely generic one.

      Spider Man would be a rip off of Jimmy Olsen in your comparison because theyre both photographers. Spidey was never a reporter.

      @Poison I prefer women, actually.
      But it's been fun watching you flail about like a toddler throwing a temper tantrum over a comic book, though. Sorry you had to be corrected by a stranger in a RU-clip comment but if you can't handle know it alls, you might consider not being one yourself. But I'm certain you won't take that to heart and will probably come back with some juvenile sexual wish fulfillment rather than simply acknowledging that you didn't know what the other person was talking about...

    I always wanted to know who came up with the NAME of Paste-Pot Pete, and why the character himself thought it was a good idea. Today, the heroes and villains (especially Spider-Man) STILL keep finding a reason to mock Trapster for his original name.
    And, as for Just Imagine, well, I did like Stan's versions of Batman and Wonder Woman (or was it the COSTUME that I liked about his Wonder Woman :-) ). But, when it was first announced, what I was thinking we were going to get was a vision if Stan had been at DC in the beginning instead of Marvel, and HE had created Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest. That's not what we got - it was just Stan creating the characters today as if they had never existed before - and, so, of course, they all came across as retreads of other ideas.
    Still, when I saw the Just Imagine Batman, I had become a fan of the El Santo and Blue Demon movies (thanks a LOT, MST3K!), and it looked like Stan had created a lucha libre version of Batman. It wasn't bad, but Bats is no El Santo. Maybe Stan should have thrown a couple of werewolves and mummies into the plot. :-)
