Modern Marvels

stanlee.jpegBush is still a douchebag, but he at least honored Stan The Man Lee, the YHWH of the Marvel Universe.

Stan Lee, who helped create hundreds of comic book superheroes, including "Spider-Man," and Olivia de Havilland, 92, who won an Academy Award in 1939 for her portrayal of Melanie Hamilton in "Gone With the Wind," were among the recipients of the National Medal of Arts and the National Humanities Medal at the White House today.

"I wonder what took so long," said Lee, 85, in an interview Sunday. "Say ‘He said it with a laugh’ or I’ll shoot you."

Congratulations, Stan! Can’t wait to see your cameo in Punisher War Journal. A posthumous Presidential Medal of Freedom should be awarded to Jack "King" Kirby.
