If Stan Lee is reborn in his next life as one of his superhero's, which one do you think it would be?

Observe asks;
If Stan Lee is reborn in his next life ... would be?

He was on record as saying Spiderman was his favorite character. I'd like to thing he's up there practicing his web slinging and wall crawling...

Before Stan Lee overshadows everything else ....

RIP Douglas Rain, the voice of HAL 9000 in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey

Sorry to hear about Douglas Rain.

I looked him up on Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Rain

Quite a filography. Was the compter voices in Woody Allen's "Sleeper" too.

Godspeed, Stan. "Excelsior," always. As a boy, there was a tired wire rack full of dreams that I selected from every weekend. I am ever so thankful that I found yours.

And, Douglas Rain, your voice will never fail, never grow old, and never tire. Thank you for being the perfect HAL and reminding us of the power of the human voice. And, thanks for lending me your voice so I could replace all my system trigger sounds... Nothing says "Science Fiction Fan" like a "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that" critical error message.

Just read about Stan Lee's passing. The Marvel films will never be the same without him making his cameo appearances in them.

R.I.P. Stan
I'm not saying he is a Russian asset, I'm saying he sat on his asset when he was supposed to be confronting Putin.
He will not be re-elected. Without a wall, he will only be remembered as a small cartoon figure who briefly inflamed and amused the rabble.

Goodbye Stan.
You're comics were staples of my youth and movies staples of my present age. I'll miss your cameos. :cry:
He was half a dozen cameo's ahead a while back as he knew he could swing off into the sunset at any time, so you'll see him a few more times.

Sad about Stan but also what a great life, he lived his work to the end, despite the nasty crap with the attempted con on his money.

I'm not an angler, but John Wilson was such an engaging presenter that I was a regular watcher of his show Go Fishing.

Rest in peace John.

That's a shame. As an angler I used to like his show until our PBS station dropped it. Heard he was in Thailand. When I was there in the service I flyfished there and locals thought I was whipping the water. :roll:

Can't be sad about Stan Lee passing - he's made it to 95 years old, left his mark on the world in a positive way, and had a right old time. Quality - that's what you call a life!
