)-- PR.com is fast becoming known as a journalistic juggernaut with celebrity and personality interviews
and stories that are in-depth, revealing and offer their readership exclusive content. PR.com’s latest interview is with Marvel Comics Icon Stan Lee
. Stan Lee is the creator of such world famous characters as Spider-Man, The Hulk, The Fantastic Four and X-Men.
Stan Lee has seen his beloved characters go on to gross hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and evolve into hugely successful movie franchises. Lee now talks to PR.com’s Allison Kugel about his decision to establish his own production company, POW! Entertainment. P-O-W! is an acronym for “Purveyors of Wonder,” which certainly describes the body of work of Stan Lee. In this humorous and revealing interview, Lee recounts memories from his childhood, his early career with Marvel Comics and the development of some of the world’s most beloved comic book characters. He also goes into detail about the new onslaught of television and film projects that POW! Entertainment currently has in development. Adding to the interview are some quotes from POW! Entertainment COO, Gill Champion about the company’s decision to bring POW! Entertainment public (Symbol: POWN), and how they plan to build their stock.
POW!’s television and film projects will include such show business powerhouses as: Ringo Starr, Hugh Hefner, Michelle Rodriguez (ABC’s Lost), The Sci-fi Channel, Paramount Pictures, and legendary film producer Robert Evans. Stan Lee and POW! Entertainment COO, Gill Champion are also getting into the reality show arena with a series called Who Wants to be a Superhero?, which is slated to air on the Sci-fi Channel later this year.
Some memorable quotes from Stan Lee’s interview:
“My publisher said, ‘How about dreaming up another superhero?’ So I said, ‘Okay.’ I was sitting at my desk trying to think of one and I saw a fly crawling on a wall, and I said ‘Gee, wouldn't it be cool if I could get a hero who could crawl on walls like an insect?’ But I think I'm not telling you the truth, because I couldn't have said, ‘Wouldn't it be cool,’ because that word wasn't in common usage back then. So I probably said, ‘Wouldn't it be groovy?’” – On coming up with the character of Spider-Man
“I told him I would do my best to make him famous… It will be an animated DVD starring Ringo Starr. We're going to make him a superhero, but an unusual type of superhero. And he, of course, will do his own voice and he'll do the music.” – On teaming up with Ringo Starr to make Ringo into an animated superhero
"See what we're doing is, we're going to tell the world the truth about you, Hefner. Everybody thinks of you as a pleasure seeking, hedonistic, sybaritic type of character. You know, interested in partying and women. But they don't know the real you, Hef." – Stan Lee’s tongue-in-cheek explanation on collaborating with Hugh Hefner on a television series called Hef’s Super Bunnies
