The Godfather of the Marvel Universe, Stan Lee, came up with oodles of amazing superpowers over the decades when he co-created superheroes like Spider-Man, The Hulk, X-Men and Fantastic Four. But what is the greatest superpower of all?
"I always say that luck is the greatest superpower, because if you have good luck then everything goes your way," Lee told Radio Times while promoting Lucky Man, a new show based on one of his original ideas. "For example, if a villain shoots you and you’ve got luck, he will miss. It’s perfect. After I explain this to people, I’m often asked, ‘So why don’t you have a superhero who’s got the power of luck?’ Well, it’s an idea that’s been percolating for a few years now and we’ve finally worked it out for this new TV show."
"Luck is something that affects everybody, and everybody can relate to it," he added. "I feel very lucky to be sitting here chatting to you about it because this show is very different to anything I’ve done before. Each episode looks beautiful and it’s a thrilling story with a surprise in almost every scene. I think it’s going to be a major hit. At least, I hope so."
