Legendary Marvel writer, Stan “The Man” Lee, is finally coming to Manila. The celebrated comicbook creator was revealed as a special guest in the first ever Comic-Con Asia 2018 which will be held from March 24 to 25 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Other guests from the comicbook industry include Harvey M. Tolibao (Marvel, DC), Carlo Pagulayan (Marvel, DC), Ian Sta. Maria (Lego), and Armand Serrano (Walt Disney).
Aside from comics, the event also promises to bring the best of Pinoy pop-culture interests like anime, cosplay, games and toys.
Needless to say, Marvel’s Chairman Emeritus instantly became the main attraction of the event as Filipino fans were stoked with the mere idea of seeing the MCU cameo king in action.
We don’t know about you, but this event will probably be the best time to bombard the energetic 95-year-old with various superhero queries. Below are a handful of geeky questions Pinoy fans can’t wait to ask Stan Lee during Comic-Con Asia.
1) Who’s your favorite superhero?
Stan Lee is considered the father of many of Marvel’s most-loved heroes including Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Panther, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four to name a few. We know favoritism isn’t an easy thing to admit (especially for someone who has fathered so many superheroes) but we couldn’t help but ask just who among his creations Stan Lee likes the most.
2) What power would you want?
With all the characters he created, which of their powers would he want in real life? Spider-Man’s agility? Thor’s mastery of lightning? Or perhaps Tony Stark’s multiple “powers” that apparently include being a genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist, minus the Iron Man suit, of course.
3) Who would win between Hulk, Wolverine, and Superman?
The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine and Superman share one special trait: they’re nearly invincible. At this point, both Marvel and DC fans are tired of debating who would come out on top if these three superheroes were pitted against each other in a three-way deathmatch so we’d like to know what one of the creators actually think.
4) Will the Fantastic Four or X-Men ever make a crossover with the Avengers?
The MCU’s largest project so far is the upcoming Infinity Wars film that features the Avengers and other Marvel superheroes coming together in an epic battle to stop Thanos. It’s a bit too late to expect any surprise additions from the Fantastic Four or X-Men but perhaps Stan Lee knows something about future plans to include these titles in a crossover movie of sorts.
5) What was your most fun movie cameo?
Stan Lee has continuously appeared in multiple Marvel movie cameos since the X-Men film released way back in 2000. He’s played various roles—a hotdog vendor, a security guard, and even an astronaut. With more than 30 cameos under his belt, which of these did he have the most memorable time with?
