Saturday Runaround – Stan Lee, DC Nation And The Daily Mail

StanWatch: Steve Bissette talks Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

Forgive my being blunt: As a corporate shill, Stan has behaved as shills should at all times. As a human being, Stan has at times behaved abominably and shamefully toward his former friend and frequent collaborator, and that man's heirs, while tending to his own selfishly and always adhering to the Marvel line to protect his own.

No one is perfect, it is not up to any one of us to judge anyone else.

StripWatch: Street pastors in Peterborough now have their own comic strip to promote their work for a local newspaper.

That was really spectacular, so there's sort of an expectation that we're going to take the suit to another level. With the Mark VII, there were a couple of elements that were already written into the script. The design always starts from the script. [Director] Joss Whedon was looking for something that had the "cool" factor of the suitcase suit, while still being a fully-armored, heavy duty suit that could take on an army in the final battle.
