Stan Lee turned 95 this week and he celebrated with his latest cameo, this time in Jeopardy.
Jeopardy dedicated an entire category on last night's episode to Stan "The Man" Lee. Lee himself delivered several of the clues via video, as seen above.
The first of Lee's clues was, "In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, I revealed that the superhero I would most like to be is this one, because he's rich, handsome, glamorous, the women love him & he's got boats & planes & an iron costume--man!" The question was, of course, "Who is Iron Man?"
His second was, "In my first published comic book story back in 1941, I introduced this character's famous shield throw, which he still employs today." The question: "Who is Captain America?"
Lee's final video clue was, "In 1961, I teamed up with Jack Kirby & told the story of this group of astronauts who gained superpowers after being bombarded by cosmic rays." The quest was, "Who is the Fantastic Four?"
Lee is currently investigating $300,000 that went missing from his bank account.
Stan Lee is concluding an eventful year. He, unfortunately, lost his wife Joan Lee not long before he and former collaborator Jack Kirby were both honored Disney Legends awards at this year's D23 Expo, and Lee delivered an emotional speech.
“I’ll go back a few years to a teenage boy. Not even a teenager, a kid around eight or ten who loved to read everything he could get his hands on,” Lee began. “In those days he read The Hardy Boys, Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes, little books he could buy inexpensively.
“One day in a bookstore, he saw a book that was an expensive book. It was what they would have called a ‘coffee table book’ to him. It was called The Art of Walt Disney. I was that boy and I couldn’t afford the book and it drove me crazy. I wanted that book so badly.
"I saved my pennies and after a few months, I bought The Art of Walt Disney. I loved that book so. I loved Walt Disney so. To me, he was more than a man. He was an inspiration. He was something to reach for, to be like him, and to think that today, I’m standing in the house that Disney built and we’ve paid tribute to Jack and now we’re talking about all the things of Disney’s it so thrilling I can’t tell."
Fans can likely expect to see Lee in cameos in all three of Marvel Studios' upcoming 2018 films: Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
