A hagiographic valentine constructed by overly excited fanboys. Lee's imprint on popular culture deserves better and deeper than this.

Lee recognized that character was more interesting than any superpower - that Peter Parker was far more interesting than Superman.

Audience Reviews for With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story

While we see him making cameo appearances in shows of his Marvel-ous creations, we now see him in his own movie that circulates on his life and his creative mind behind his creations. "The Stan Lee Story" is full of optimism with a little of awesomeness, including the cast and crews of the Marvel films showing their appreciation of Stan Lee's mind being similar to Walt Disney in comics and on-screen entertainment. Even though it's a documentary, it's one of the best Marvel films of all time at an A-rating. (A-) (Full review coming soon)

I'd take Peter Parker over Superman any day! This movie is the genius behind all those comic books that are still loved decades later. The best parts were the tender moments with his wife.
