Stan Lee Assembles His "Mighty 7"
Wed, May 16th, 2012 at 12:30pm PDT | Updated: 18 hours ago

These days, Stan Lee is unavoidable. The legendary writer behind Marvel Comics biggest icons (alongside artists Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby) has spent the past few months on another of his media-saturated stints traveling the country to talk up everything from the box office juggernaut "The Avengers" to a documentary about his life, and along the way he's filmed commercials for Dr. Pepper and more.

Of course, aside from being the elder statesman/promotional spokesman for comics on the national level, Lee also continues to create new concepts via his POW! Entertainment company. On top of recent launches from BOOM! Studios, Viz and 1821 Entertainment, the writer's most recent series is "Stan Lee's Mighty 7" - a new bi-monthly superhero series published by Archie Comics under a new Stan Lee Comics imprint.

Billed as "the world's first reality comic book," the "Mighty 7" series stars a comic version of Lee himself. As the comic writer within the comic struggles to create new superheroes for Archie, a team of both good guys (two Star Marshalls Asoara and Vallor) and bad guys (prisoners Blastok, Mercuria, Faidout, Ovalax and Telepan) crash land into his life. The particulars of that setup were unveiled recently in "Mighty 7" #1, and next week on May 23, issue #2 arrives in shops to further complicate matters with the addition of the villain Frightmask to the mix. CBR News spoke with Lee about the series creation, his history with non-superhero comics from romance to teen comedy, how he's poking fun at himself in the book, how the collaboration with "Mighty 7" script writers Tony Blake and Paul Jackson and artist Alex Saviuk has gone to date and more.




Stan Lee is on a role! Lionsgate has acquired a new and original superhero property from Stan Lee and his POW! Entertainment.
Smallville's Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will write, direct and produce the movie through their Millar/Gough Ink production company.
Just yesterday Lee locked down Dan Gilroy (Real Steel) to adapt an original treatment of his called The Annihilator.

Of course no details have been revealed for the project yet, but it's being described as a "multigenerational superhero movie that
spans several decades." Now that sounds like it could be interesting, I would really love to learn more about it! This could be a
cool movie.


According to Variety, "The comicbook vet approached Gough and Millar with the superhero concept after becoming a fan of Smallville
and collaborating with the two scribes on Spider-Man 2." The two writers are currently in the middle of producing the new Sylvester
Stallone action film Bullet to the Head,  which is based on the French graphic novel "Du Plomb Dans La Tete," for Warner Bros.

Stan Lee sets three with Disney

Apr. 3, 2008 11:48 AM

Comic book legend Stan Lee has set up three projects at Disney, which houses his production shingle POW! Entertainment. The projects have attracted Oscar nominee Richard LaGravenese, scribe Gary Goldman and Robert Teitel and George Tillman Jr. of State Street Pictures.

The projects are based on stories and ideas from Lee, who will executive produce with his POW! partner Gill Champion.

Lee and Champion said the projects are intended to be films with franchise potential, with the first installments intended to serve as an origin story that lays out the mythology of the plot and characters.

"I only hope Disney will have room at the theme park once they become the tentpole franchises that we envision them to be," Lee joked.

LaGravenese is attached to write and direct "Nick Ratchet," revolving around the exploits of a private eye.

LaGravenese last wrote and directed "P.S. I Love You." He was nominated for an Oscar for writing "The Fisher King."

The action-adventure project "Blaze" is being written by Goldman ("Next").

"Tigress" ( working title ) follows a woman who starts getting tiger-like instincts. It's being written by relative newcomer Zoe Green.

Green, a Cambridge undergrad who attended UCLA's directing program, wrote for BBC's "Wolverine & the X-Men" cartoon series.

Lee's POW! entered a multiyear first-look deal with Disney in June.
