My Stan Lee Story

My favorite Stan Lee story is when he accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2011 Harvey Award Banquet in Baltimore.

2011 comic books marvel

He totally fooled the crowd by walking up to the stage looking like a feeble old man guided by his lady nursemaid. Once he reached the stage though, he transformed into a younger man by standing up straight and tall, then strutting across the stage with that girl on his arm like she was his date. He launched into a hilarious acceptance speech where he poked fun at a few other award recipients and had everyone in the room laughing. After all these years, he’s still got it!

Here’s a video from that night (sorry for the quality).
