Stan Lee wins at life forever

Welcome, true believers. I will go ahead and assume that most or at least some or at least one of you is familiar with the great Stan Lee. For those of you who don’t, here’s a quick rundown. Stan Lee is a prolific Marvel Comics writer, and he’s the guy who created people like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and the Hulk. He’s also worked with Japanese artists in creating properties like Ultimo and Heroman. Now, the thing about Stan Lee is that he tends to make cameos in movie adaptations of his work. And by tends, I mean always does. Always. Exhibit A (Sorry, I can’t embed it properly):

Now let’s go back to Lee’s Japanese creations, Ultimo and Heroman. Now, in the Ultimo manga, Lee appears as the scientist creator of Ultimo. In fact, in the Shonen Jump FCBD featuring Ultimo, Stan Lee’s character appears as the focus of a kickass poster in the middle. But I digress from the key point here.

The anime adaptation of Heroman premiered yesterday. I started watching it a few minutes ago, and I noticed this:

Movie cameos? Awesome. Manga cameo? Awesome. Anime cameo? You’ve taken this to a whole new level, Mr. Lee. I applaud you, good sir.
