Listen I’m not gonna try to pretend the stereotype of old creepy men who try to get nurses to jack them off during sponge baths isn’t a real thing. Stan Lee and that age group grew up in a time where that shit was common place. The reason it kills me a little deep inside is because I know how much he loved his wife. I mean read this shit and try to not drum up thoughts of a perfect romance story.
“When I was young, there was one girl I drew; one body and face and hair. It was my idea of what a girl should be. The perfect woman. And when I got out of the Army, somebody, a cousin of mine, knew a model, a hat model at a place called Laden Hats. He said, ‘Stan, there’s this really pretty girl named Betty. I think you’d like her. She might like you. Why don’t you go over and ask her to lunch.’ Blah, blah, blah.
“So I went up to this place. Betty didn’t answer the door. But Joan answered, and she was the head model. I took one look at her — and she was the girl I had been drawing all my life. And then I heard the English accent. And I’m a nut for English accents! She said, ‘May I help you?’ And I took a look at her, and I think I said something crazy like, ‘I love you.’ I don’t remember exactly. But anyway, I took her to lunch. I never met Betty, the other girl. I think I proposed to [Joan] at lunch.”
his wife was his muse and the guy didn’t even know it till he accidentally ran into her! I tear up thinking about running into a the girl you’d been dreaming about all your life but then i tear up more thinking that image is tarnished by the idea of Stan Lee asking nurses to jerk him off while he touches up on The Amazing Spider-man Issue #121. What ever happens happens, hope he stops sexually harassing nurses. Not like I’m a comic book artist so I’m not personally offended but I damn sure do love every single marvel movie and this world he helped create. Which brings me to my last point.
You gotta kill Stan Lee’s cameo in Infinity Wars right? Like not kill it as in “yea we crushed it, great scene!” I mean I want to see Stan Lee die in it. You can’t talk about how Thanos is the big bad in a movie thats a culmination of 10 years and not stick a shocking dagger in every person in the audience. I mean people already assume Thanos is gonna wipe out half the universe, Key characters potentially dying. Why not really make Thanos one of the most iconic villains by at least on screen killing one of the most iconic cameos/character of all time. There doesn’t need to be any continuity issues, the guy showed up in space in GotG2. Not like its some crazy plot hole if he shows up in movies after. But the fact is this is suppose to be one of the craziest Marvel movie to date, he’s 95 years old. At that age you never know whats gonna happen. Do we want his last memory to be a 95 year old sexual harassing old man who yelled at Peter Parker in Spider-man Homecoming 2? No. We want to have our heart strings ripped out when he gets vaporized by Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.
