Five Things We Learned About Stan Lee At Wizard World Philly

The X-Men Turn 50 in 2013
The golden anniversary of Marvel’s band of mutants takes place next year. To commemorate the occassion, the various X-titles will have variant covers that will take you back to a time when the franchise wasn’t yet a mainstream Hollywood property. Case in point are the covers to All-New X-Men #6 with the cast of Generation X by Chris Bachalo and X-Factor #250 with every person that’s been on the roster (wearing their late 80s/early 90s uniforms) by Clay Mann.

For The Ladies: Here’s A Naked Picture Of Stan Lee. You’re Quite Welcome.
This picture of a suave-looking Stan Lee circa 1983 is from Sean Howe's upcoming book Marvel Comics: The Untold Story and it’s glorious.
Here’s an excerpt from the book:
STAN LEE, CENTERFOLD (photograph by Eliot R. Brown)
When Stan Lee visited New York in January 1983, the editorial staff was at the peak of its yuk-yuk, hand-buzzer giddiness. They’d been shooting photos of each other in superhero costumes for some of the covers—several staff members appeared on the cover of the last issue of SPIDER-WOMAN—and now they were putting together a comic that consisted wholly of photos of intra-office hijinks. They wanted to include Stan the Man. Lee, the original ringmaster, jumped at the chance to pose for a nude centerfold. Marvel staffers photographed Lee with an oversize comic book covering his private parts; soon after, they received a call from his assistant in L.A. “Stan is wild,” said the assistant. “He should not have been naked for your centerfold. Please. Don’t.” (A Hulk costume was later superimposed over Lee’s body in postproduction.)
Notice how the comic had to be oversize. Get it, Stan!
