Quotes

Stan Lee: I don't know what the universal conception of creator is. Steve definitely felt that he was the co-creator of Spider-man. That was really, and once he said it I realized that it meant a lot to him, that was fine with me. So I said, "Fine, I'll tell everybody that you're the co-creator." But that didn't quite satisfy him. So I sent him a letter, I put it in writing, To whom it may concern: This is to state that I consider Steve Ditko to be the co-creator of Spider-man, or something like that. ...

Very disjointed and disappointing documentary
9 September 2013 | by tehickmanSee all my reviews

I suspect that the rating this documentary has received so far is based on the love for the subject, Mr Stan Lee. The fan-base for Mr Lee and his many character creations have made him an iconic name in our culture today. As a longtime fan myself, I have heard or read many of the stories and incidents recounted in this film before. My problem is with the quality of the film itself. Much of the history of the the comics industry and the life of Mr Lee were told out of order, clips of Mr Lee being interviewed about a topic, would be shown at the same time that the narrator was describing something that happened years before. If not known previously, a viewer would think that the Seduction of the Innocents book came out in the 70's instead of the 50's. Mr Lee deserves a better recounting of his contributions to the comic book and movie industries.
