You, uh, looking at that couple inside ? 

Actually, I was just looking at this little pink number over here. 

Oh, yeah, that's kinda nice. 

They look happy, don't they ? What, the bras ? 

No, the couple. They look happy. 

I guess, as far as couples go. 

You know, it reminds me of an issue of spiderman I did. 

When peter parker and gwen stacy went lingerie shopping. 

Of course, the green goblin showed up and pumpkin-bombed the hell 
out of the place. 

But aside from that, it's pretty much the same thing. 

Oh, my god ! 

Holy shit ! 

Aren't you-- oh. Stan lee. Hi. 
 
The fantastic four. Reed richards. Can his whole body stretch ? 

Every part, like his-- 

[ Chuckles ] I know what you mean. 

We never really tackled stuff like that in the old days. 

I mean, what with the comic book code and all. 

I can't believe I'm standing here talking to you. You're 
responsible for the greats. 

Let's do the list. Spiderman ? Guilty. 

The incredible hulk ? 'Fraid so. 

Oh, man, this is so cool. The x-men ? Now that you mention it. 

Shit, man, you are a god ! 

Hey, look at that couple. Boy, they sure seem to be in love, huh ? 

What's with that ? That's the second time you've commented on 
couples in love. 

I like that sort of thing. Tell me, do you have a girlfriend, 
brodie ? 

Had one. We just broke up. 

The thing ! Is his dork made of orange rock like the rest of his 
body ? 

[ Chuckles ] it's a superhero's secret. Tell me, brodie. 

Why did you and your girlfriend break up ? She was a pain in the 
ass. 

She wanted me to be this typical boyfriend guy. 

Said I was too into my own world of comics and all. Yeah, I can 
relate. 

There was a time when it was all about comics for me. 

I had a girl, probably the same as yours. 

She always complained that I spent too much time with my own 
comics. 

And, eventually, we broke up. 

See ? What did she know ? Here you are now, a legend in the field. 

Probably had a slew of women since her. Am I right ? Oh, lots of 
women. 

Jagger and me, we had a running contest to see who had the most. 

Matter of fact, last time I looked, I was way ahead. 

Damn, that's hot ! But I never forgot that girl. 

Did you ever get back together ? One day, I found out she got 
married. 

I had blown it. I had, uh... Missed my window. 

No way. Well, what'd you do ? 

I went on with my life. 

I created some special new superheroes. 

They were characters that reflected my own heartbreak and my own 
regrets. 

How so ? Doctor doom wears body armor... 

To conceal his own mangled form, right ? Yeah. 

Okay. That was me beneath the armor. 

The hulk-- a normal guy one minute, a rage of emotions the next. 

Just like me when I thought about what I'd given up. 

So you created each character as a way to deal with your one big 
regret. 

Yeah. The girl that got away. 

Look, do yourself a favor, brodie. 

Don't wait. Because all the money, all the women, 

[ Chuckles ] even all the comic books in the world, 

They can't substitute for that one person. 

I don't know. All the comics in the world ? Trust me, true 
believer. 

Well, good talking to you. Keep up all the good work. 

You keep reading 'em, I'll keep writing 'em. 

- Hey, stan. - Yeah ? 

- She really meant 

I'd give it all up, all of it, 

For just one more day with her. 

Take care. 

Stan. Hi. 

I think he bought it. What kind of story'd you give him ? 

Oh, it was the vulture's soliloquy, you know, from the spiderman 
anniversary issue. 

"Love be a vulture tonight." 

[ Laughs ] 

I can't thank you enough. Oh, forget it. 

But, you know, I think you ought to get him some help. 

He seems to be really hung up on superhero sex organs. 

But he'll outgrow it. Okay.

- Oh, Mr Lee. 

- "Excelsior"

- You got that right.
