The Big Bang Theory, Stan LeeIt's gotta be a major thrill for Sheldon to hang with Stan Lee on 'The Big Bang Theory' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on CBS). Especially since the last time they were supposed to meet, Sheldon ended up in jail.

Still, dude. Crashing your hero's pad when he's in his pajamas? Thirty lashes with a wet Spider-Man comic book.

Watch the video after the jump.

'The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Excelsior Acquisition' Recap

(S03E16) I've got to say, I would have enjoyed a little bit more of Stan Lee in this episode. He didn't really get to interact with anyone except for Penny. Even though Sheldon was in the scene, he just kind of hung back before dashing into Stan Lee's house. Instead of seeing another, "what crazy situation can we put Sheldon in" scene, I would have much preferred seeing the events that transpired that ended up leading to Wolowitz and Leonard having gelato with the comic book legend.

In fact, the episode left me with more questions about Stan Lee than it answered. Namely, would he really answer his own door, and do he and Hugh Hefner go pajama shopping together? Because that is a reality show I would be interested in watching.

Stan Lee's New Comic Already Being Developed for TV

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 10th 2010 7:01PM
It must be awesome to be Stan Lee. Women adore him. Men want to be him. And superheroes bow to his every beck and call. It's a good thing he's using his powers for good instead of evil because if it were the other way around, we would all be screwed.

The comic book legend is working on yet another comic book property. This time, however, A Squared Entertainment and Archie Comics have already started optioning the title for television before the ink and paint on the pages have even had a chance to dry.

His new creation, 'Super Seven,' is about a group of aliens who crash land on Earth and are befriended by Lee who takes them under their wing and helps them regain their work as superheroes.

Mad Men? Meet the X-Men

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 11th 2009 9:30PM
Are you a fan of Mad Men? Are you a fan of X-Men? Have you been hoping that Matt Weiner and Stan Lee would somehow meet up at an exclusive Hollywood party and eventually create a series that combines your two favorite television franchises?

If so, please get out of your house more.

And that hasn't exactly happened but the funny folks at Madatoms have done that for you with their new line of Mad Men/X-Men mash-ups. The shows are actually eerily similar when you think about it. Both of them feature ruthless characters who will stop at nothing for ultimate power. Both deal with the changing intolerance of their respective ages. The only thing missing are the tight fitting spandex outfits, but hey, a man can dream, right?

Marvel's Super Hero Squad teaser site now live

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 30th 2009 8:04AM
marvel super hero squadBeing a big fan of Cartoon Network's goofy Batman: The Brave and the Bold, I'm really looking forward to the debut of Marvel's Super Hero Squad. The show premieres Sept. 19 on Cartoon Network, and Marvel has already launched a teaser site featuring a fun video preview that could turn out to be the show's opening montage.

Super Hero Squad is based on the toy line and video game of the same name. It features cute and cuddly versions of Marvel heroes, like Wolverine, Iron Man, and the Hulk, protecting Super Hero City from a pint-sized Dr. Doom and other baby baddies. Judging by the preview video, the show will even make room for kid-sized versions of more obscure characters like Fing Fang Foom and MODOK.

Marvel brings out the funny side of superheroes in the animated Hero Up!

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 26th 2009 8:25AM
Super Hero SquadIf you've been reading Marvel Comics, you've probably seen the little gag strips they've put in the back of a lot of them. Super Hero Squad takes all the Marvel heroes and villains and makes them basically parodies of themselves.

Now they're taking that same style to the masses. Hero Up! The Super Hero Squad Show is the new cartoon headed to Saturday mornings. The premise is simple. The heroes hang out in Hero City. The mayor is voiced by Stan "The Man" Lee, who created most of the Marvel Universe ("Excelsior!"). That's right up there with Mayor West on Family Guy in sheer coolness.

Meanwhile, over in Villainville, Dr. Doom and the Lethal Legion are plotting to take over the world. To give you an idea of what kinds of villainy we're dealing with, they did a special cast reading at the convention. It's plot: Dr. Doom's quest to acquire an exclusive My Little Pony collectible. The series kicks off with a four-episode marathon on Cartoon Network September 19, and I'm strangely very excited about it.

BET gets its own Marvel cartoon

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 19th 2008 10:25AM
Marvel Comics' Black PantherThe Marvel Comics character Black Panther is getting his own animated show on the BET network. This was announced during the BET upfront presentation in New York for the 2008-2009 season.

The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (who co-created most of the classic Marvel Comics line up) and first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966. The character's real name is T'Challa and he is the ruler of a fictional African country called Wakanda. His name predates the existence of the Black Panther Party.

There have been a few attempts to bring the character to the movie screen, one in particular in the early 1990's starring Wesley Snipes. In 2007, Marvel announced that a film based on the character was on its movie development slate.

He's a minor character as far as the Marvel universe goes, but he is the most visible black superhero they have. He has appeared in several other animated Marvel television shows before, but not in a main role.

Who Wants To Be A Superhero? season two -- An early look

by Brett Love, posted Jul 20th 2007 9:09AM
Basura - Who Wants To Be A SuperheroThe fine folks over at the Sci Fi channel sent over a copy of the WWTBAS? premiere and, for better or worse, it's much of the same. One thing I've noticed, among my friends anyway, is that this show is kind of polarizing. People either love its campy humor and look forward to the new episodes, or they despise it and wonder what it is doing on the Sci Fi channel. It's topped only by the ECW in that regard.

While there is a whole new crop of potential superheroes, the basics of the show remain the same. So, if you didn't like it before, I don't think season two is going to do anything to change your mind. On the other hand, fans should look forward to another fun season. I'm not convinced that they managed to get the best group of potential heroes they could have, as some of those that we see in the very brief casting segment looked rather interesting. However, it is a pretty solid group overall.

Identity: Premiere

by Brett Love, posted Dec 19th 2006 11:34AM
Penn Jillette(S01E01) The latest in the ever increasing line of game shows is upon us. With Penn Jillette hosting, NBC unveiled Identity last night. After one episode, the show has a lot going for it. To start, Jillette was a great choice for the host. He's good with the guests, manages to keep the show moving along, and a pretty funny guy. The line of the night came when he said of the shark attack victim, "If she didn't have that top on our ratings would be a lot better."

The game itself is rather simple. The contestant is presented with 12 strangers and a list of twelve identities. For each correct guess they move up the money ladder. Correctly identifying all twelve strangers is a $500,000 payoff. They have one mistaken identity in their pocket, so the first miss is a freebie. But a second miss sends them home with no cash.

To aid them in their quest there are two helper options. With "tridentity" they can pick one of the identities and the field will be narrowed down to three potential correct answers. There is also a panel of experts that includes a body language expert, a psychologist, and an fbi agent.

Here's that Guiding Light superhero

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 27th 2006 4:12PM

Guiding Light Remember that crossover between Marvel Comics and the CBS soap Guiding Light that I told you about recently? The episode airs next Wednesday, November 1, and CBS.com has a sneak peek video.

Of course, I can't get the video to work at all. Can anyone else get it to work? I've tried both IE and Firefox and it doesn't load for some reason.

Anyway, the superhero is actually regular GL character Harley Cooper, who is zapped by lightning (oh, original) and gets superpowers. But will she will good or evil? Not sure, but it looks like her superhero-ness is comprised of colored contact lenses and the kind of hat that newsboys used to wear in the 1940s.

Marvel will have a special comic book featuring the superhero inserted into several other comic books in the coming weeks (a full list is at the site above).

Feedback from Who Wants To Be A SuperheroRest easy, true believers. You can sleep safe in your beds knowing that Feedback is on the job. Software engineer Matthew Atherton beat out the last remaining contestant, Fat Momma, to win the inaugural edition of Sci-Fi's Who Wants To Be A Superhero. His alter-ego, Feedback, will now be featured in a Stan Lee comic, disrupting electronics while fighting for justice and fair play. If you would like to see how it all went down, the final episode is available to watch on the Sci-Fi Pulse.

Who Wants to be a Superhero: Episode 1 (series premiere)

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 27th 2006 11:14PM

Who Wants to be a Superhero(S01E01) Uhm, yea.

Look, I admire Stan Lee. Back in the early 1960's he took Marvel Comics, which was in its death throes at the time, and turned it completely around by introducing a whole new group of superheroes, including such mainstays as Spider-man, The Hulk, The X-Men, and The Fantastic Four. These people didn't just have abilities beyond those of mortal men: they had feelings and hearts and realized that their powers came with a price. As Uncle Ben said to Peter Parker 'With great power comes great responsibility'. So, Mr. Lee had every right to become the icon that he is today.

But Stan . . . Stan, Stan, Stan. What the heck were you thinking when you created Who Wants to be a Superhero? Don't get me wrong, the concept is good: enlist normal people to dress up as original comic book heroes (with self-made costumes) and compete in an elimination tournament where the winner would get their own comic book and an original movie on the Sci-Fi Channel. However, the outcome that premiered was, well, not very good at all.

This looks like a job for ... Cell Phone Girl?

by Richard Keller, posted Jul 14th 2006 7:11PM

Cell Phone Girl of Who Wants to be a SuperheroWe've been reporting on-and-off for several months now about Spider-Man creator Stan Lee's new series called Who Wants to be a Superhero, which will be appearing on the Sci-Fi Channel. Well, the premiere of the series is a mere two weeks away and the 11 superheroes that will be competing for a chance to appear in their own comic book and a Sci-Fi Channel movie have been chosen.

You can see the chosen heroes at Sci-Fi Channel's website. Some of the contestants take their hero personas seriously. For example, Matthew Atherton's alter ego, Feedback, absorbs powers and abilities from video games that he plays. That's a pretty decent concept. On the other hand, Chelsea Weld's Cell Phone Girl doesn't seem to be taking to whole thing seriously (well, seriously enough for a contest involving real life superheroes).

Maybe it's the name Cell Phone Girl that causes problems. I mean, would you really pick up an issue of Cell Phone Girl number one hundred, or watch a movie entitled The Further Adventures of Cell Phone Girl? Maybe the producers of Superhero will ask her to change her name to something like Free Minutes, or Roaming.

Animated Fantastic FourNo, we're not talking about a return of the old Beatles cartoons; that would be the Fab Four. We're talking about the long-running Marvel Comics series created by Stan "The Man" Lee that became a popular movie last year. Starting in the fall, Cartoon Network will air 26 new half-hour episodes of the Fantastic Four animated series.

Produced in cooperation between Marvel Studios and Moonscoop, the animated series will incorporate both 2D and 3D animation styles. According to Marvel Chief Operating Officer Michael Helfant, the animated series will be part of an aggressive strategy to promote their comic book characters through a number of different media outlets.
