Stan Lee (b. 1922) is an American comic book writer, editor, actor, producer, publisher, television personality, and the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. In collaboration with several artists he co-created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, and many other fictional characters, introducing complex, naturalistic characters and a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books.
In April 2012, Lee was interviewed for Ain't It Cool by the puppet version of Harry Knowles on the red carpet for the LA premiere of the film Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. During the interview, Stan Lee states to Harry that the next time he comes to Comic-Con, he wants a puppet version of himself or else he won't have another talk with Harry again. Stan also commented that a Stan Lee puppet talking to Harry Knowles would be great. Harry tells Stan that he will talk to his people at The Jim Henson Company and see what he can do.
