CBM Rewind: The Time George R.R. Martin Wrote A Letter To Stan Lee
George R.R. Martin of Game of Thrones fame wrote a letter to Stan Lee back in the '60s about Fantastic Four #32 and Avengers #9. He recommended getting rid of Puppet Master and Mole Man.
Well looks like once upon a time, ol' GRRM was a fan of Marvel comics and even wrote to the comic publisher and had a letter published in Avengers #12. Martin stated that the only characters worthy of becoming regular Fantastic Four villains were "Namor, Doc Doom, Hulk, and the Red Ghost." He goes on to call the Thinker, Mole Man, Puppet Master, and Diablo, "the poorest villains Marvel has ever introduced". Check out the letter in full below.
George R. R. Martin (born September 20, 1948), sometimes referred to as GRRM, is an American author and screenwriter of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. He is best known for his A Song of Ice and Fire series of epic fantasy novels, which HBO adapted into the dramatic series Game of Thrones. Martin was selected by Time magazine as one of the "2011 Time 100," a list of the "most influential people in the world."
