Stan Lee: A life in review

Saturday, June 17, 2023

‘He has a heroic moment when he invents Spider-Man.’ Variety’s Owen Gleiberman reviews a new Disney+ documentary about the late Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee
… a movie that Looper’s Reuben Baron says skips “many stranger and sadder chapters” in Lee’s life.
Not a Disney+ subscriber? You’re in luck, because …

I got a lot of the story straight from Lee himself over the decades, and you can revisit my encounters with him in 1975, 1976, 1998, 2017 … and a postmortem with two of his biographers in 2021.

Bonus, from 1997, on the occasion of Lee’s 75th birthday. Ten things I learned from Marvel Comics written by Stan Lee.
