While Hollywood actors find themselves in an increasing amount of comic book films throughout their careers, there will always be one resume they can’t beat: Stan Lee’s.
The Marvel Comics Godfather has appeared in almost every Marvel adaptation since the 1980’s, sporting a brief cameo that makes about a quarter of every movie theater squeel with geek-affirming glee. In honor Lee’s latest cameo in Disney’s Big Hero 6, an adaptation of a Marvel Manga series, Yahoo! Movies complied a supercut of every Stan Lee cameo since 1989’s The Trial of The Incredible Hulk. So far, the tally includes:
1)The Trial Of The Incredible Hulk
8)X-Men: The Last Stand
10)Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
12)The Incredible Hulk
13)Iron Man 2
15)Captain America: The First Avengers
17)The Amazing Spider-Man
18)Iron Man 3

Check out the video below for two and a half decades of cinematic Stan Lee.
Stan’s 25th acting appearance will most likely be May 1st, 2015, when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters. After that, we only hope that Marvel finds a way to stuff him in the next 10 films to follow the Avengers sequel.
