Stan Lee wasn’t built in a day, people!
The 92-year-old legend made the audience go wild (I mean… like, insane) when he surprised them at the taping of a special ‘Nerds Rule’ episode of Let’s Make a Deal, airing in January 2016.
“I got such a kick out of it,” Stan told ETonline of the appearance. “The enthusiasm of all the kids in the audience, it was wonderful, it really was.”
While we now know him as the legendary comic book writer responsible for co-creating characters like Spider-Man, The Hulk, Iron Man, the X-Men and plenty more (we’d be here for hours) -- Stan revealed he didn’t always get the warm welcome he deserved.
"When I was originally writing these stories, nobody seemed to care,” said Stan. “I was sort of dismissed."
Yes, people would write off STAN LEE at parties. So much so, he would attempt to hide what he did for a living.
"Somebody would say, 'What do you do?' and I knew it was coming, so I'd say, 'Oh, I'm a writer,' and I'd walk away."
But any attempt to leave would often prove to be difficult. Lee recalled that he would invariably be asked, “What do you write?” and he would simply reply with "stories for kids" before trying to escape the conversation yet again, only to be pulled back in with the question, “What stories?”
