Comic book industry legend Stan Lee is at it again!
On the eve of Comic Con 2016, the man who helped create some of the world's most iconic superheroes, such as The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, and The Fantastic Four, has unveiled his latest creation, the streaming animated series Stan Lee's Cosmic Crusaders.
The series is produced by Lee's POW! Entertainment in association with brand management firm Genius Brand International, and The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by comic book scribe Fabian Nicieza based on a concept by Lee, Cosmic Crusaders tells the story of seven extraterrestrials who are befriended by Lee (who voices himself) after their starship crashes on earth.
Lee vows to mold the aliens into a sensational superteam - but his motives are not entirely altruistic.
What I enjoyed most about the debut episode of Cosmic Crusaders is its satirical, comedic tone.
With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Lee riffs on many common comic book tropes, as well as his own storied reputation as a brilliant promoter and marketer. A reputation garnered during the course of a momentous 75-year career in the comic book industry.
To coincide with its salute of Lee's extraordinary career in its special Comic Con 2016 edition, The Hollywood Reporter is streaming all episodes of Cosmic Crusaders on its website: www.thr.com/cosmic.
