The father of the Amazing Spider-Man is still pretty amazing himself -- at NYCC, Stan Lee not surprisingly packed the house during his Saturday appearance, and managed to have journalists lining up afterward to speak with him.

I was one of those lucky enough to get a few minutes with Stan, and was able to get some insight into his newest project, the web video channel "Stan Lee's World of Heroes," as well as a benchmark on how he regards his side-career as a big-screen actor. (I was also able to restrain myself from asking Stan to shout, "Excelsior!" but I don't guarantee it won't happen the next time.)
