Stand Lee Interveiw
Recently I had heard of an interveiw going on that featured Stan-Lee, so being the guy that I am decided to watch the interview at spiderman.sonypicture.com. So I watched it and learned some stuff about spider man that I didnt really know. So after watching the videos I decided to write a summary of the interview for you. So enjoy .. and here it is: The first quesiton that was asked was when did Spider-Man first come out and why. Stan Lee replied by saying (and I dont remember exactly) that Spider-Man came out some time after The Hulk, and the reason why they came up with Spider-Man was because of the fact that they were doing good with the hulk and decided to try to make another series. The next question that was asked was how did he come up with the Idea for Spider-Man, and Stan Lee replied by saying: The Idea of Spider-Man came when he was trying to figure out a new set of powers for the new super hero and since most of them can fly and such already he decided it would be nice if a super hero could have powers like an insect. Then after the super hero came the name and thou he thought of many names nothing sounded more serious than Spider-Man so then Spider-Man was born! Stan Lee tried to create as much as normal human being as possible. facing everyday problems that were as stunning and mind blowing at he would face in his suit. Problems such as, girls, homework, school, getting a job, and all sorts of things that everyone would deal with. As Stan Lee puts it "I think teenagers saw this and said Hey! That could be me." And over the years people still love Spider-man.
