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.
- You got that right.
