Stan Lee Gets His Star on the Walk of Fame Today!

CNN reports that Stan Lee will get his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame on Tuesday, a week after his 88th birthday. Here are some clips from the article:

Lee jokingly asked why he had to wait 50 years after the first star was awarded and 70 years after his comic book career began.

"I’ll talk to somebody about that," Lee told CNN.

Lee’s characters include Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, The Avengers, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange.

"I’m pretty proud of the fact that some of the stories I wrote so many years ago are still being read and hopefully enjoyed by the public and people are making motion pictures based on them, and television series and even a Broadway show," Lee said.

His favorite creation is Spider-Man "because he’s the most popular and he’s known and loved worldwide," he said. "But I really loved them all and whichever one I was writing at the moment, that was my favorite."

The movies based on Lee’s comic books "have done so much for the characters" by giving them glamour and prestige, he said.

"When they were in comic books, they were still read all over the world and pretty well-known all over the world, but they didn’t have, you might say, the respect that they have now because of movies," he said.
