Stan Lee was at Oz Comic con this weekend in Melbourne Australia. The room was at full capacity with everyone wanting to get a glimpse of Stan Lee and what he had to say .
He spoke about how he created the idea of Spiderman and was told Spiderman will never work ,no one likes spiders , nor hear about a week teenage boy as a hero. Yet after the first week of record sales ,he knew there was going to be allot more to be told about the Adventures of Spiderman.
He was asked many questions by fans one as young as 5 ,who asked” Who is your favourite character” ? To that he replied "All of them I created them so they are all my favourite ", with a big smile and chuckle .”
Stan Lee had a bit of a stumble and fall as he left the stage and like the true hero he is to his fans , got straight back up and appeared to be unhurt going on to sign 100′s of Autographs.
