10 Quotes By Stan Lee That The Fans Cannot Forget

“[Being a ‘geek’] has become a badge of honour. It’s geeks who really make or break a TV show or movie or video game.

A geek is really somebody interested in communication and entertainment and [finding] the best way to avail himself or herself to it..” – Stan Lee, The Washington Post.

10 Quotes By Stan Lee That The Fans Cannot Forget

“Everybody has Doctor Doom misunderstood. Everybody thinks he’s a criminal, but all he wants is to rule the world. Now, if you really think about it objectively, you could walk up to a policeman, and you could say, ‘Excuse me, officer, I want to tell you something: I want to rule the world.’ He can’t arrest you; it’s not a crime to want to rule the world. So […] it’s unfair that he’s considered a villain because he just wants to rule the world. Then maybe he could do a better job of it. So I’m very interested in Doctor Doom, and I’d like to clear his name.”– Stan Lee, Cat Country 98.1.

“The more you read, the better you’re going to become as a storyteller.” – Stan Lee, IGN.com.

“I don’t know where the hell I’ll be in five years. Maybe I’ll be producing movies maybe I’ll be on a corner selling apples. I don’t know, but I’m having a hell of a lot of fun.” – Stan Lee, IGN.com.
