The great Stan Lee who created such masterpiece characters as The Fantastic Four,Iron Man,X-men,and Doctor Strange and has his cameos in his creations movies will be the 2,428 celebrity to recieve a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

He will officially recieve his star on Tuesday January 4th in front of the Live Nation Building at 11:30.



Walk of Fame press has released this as to why Lee is getting a star since comics is not one of their categories and that Stan Lee is the first person ever from the comics industry to get a star:

In 1981 Stan Lee transformed his Spider-Man and Hulk creations into Saturday morning and syndicated television cartoons. When Marvel Comics and Marvel Productions were acquired by New World Entertainment in 1986, Stan’s horizons expanded even further, giving him the opportunity to become more deeply involved in the creation and development of filmed projects for both the big and small screen. He supervised such diverse animated series as X-Men, Spider-Man and The Hulk. To date, Stan’s characters have populated over 24 separate television series, all of which continue in syndication around the world.


Personally he had this a long time coming.

P.s. He's getting a star because he's done so much for HOLLYWOOD and rightly so! ; )

I'm sorry but no disrespect, but why?

He's not an actor or Director, he just has cameos in films (which some of you are annoyed of). Dont get me wrong, I love Stan, its just that it doesnt make sense. I dont see other comic creators on the walk of fame.

But anyways congratulations Stan, more or less, you kind of do deserve this.

Way to go Stan. Seriously if It wasn't for Marvel Comics characters a lot of these would be actors wouldn't be where they are today.

Guys, You don't GET a star on the walk of fame you BUY a star. It costs money. You have to pay for that piece of real estate. Anyway, he deserves the whole block.

CONGRATS!!! FINALLY! This award is WAAAY over due. Much respect to the one & only who's been a HUGE part of my childhood & now adulthood. Thank you for creating such awesome unique characters. X-Men will ALWAYS be my favorite btw lol

Way to go Stan! The bid for the Oscar for Best Cameo Artist may have fallen through, but this (IMHO) is far better.

Excelsior!

Hey guys, been reading on here since x-men 3 was in production, finally decided to join. I think it's great that Stan the Man is getting a star, maybe a little odd, but still pretty awesome!

Congrats to Stan the Man. He's brought happiness to so many. This is really well deserved.

why is so hard to understand stan lee getting a star? whole point of getting one of these is because of their contribution to entertainment i.e. movies,music,t.v.,and comic books or C.B.M.'s. congrats stan.

He should get 2 starz

The Adam West batman was a joke and a complete phony(no offense to the fans out there)but Bob Kane wanted a dark superhero, and that corn puff movie and TV series did absolutely no justice whatsoever.If any for Batman it's Chris Nolan. I believe he gave the world the batman that Bob Kane would have wanted in the future.
