Thanksgiving Special: Stan Lee Tells MTV What He's Thankful For This Year

Talking with Stan Lee is always a treat, and our recent conversation about his old-school approach to Twitter, his "Thor" cameo and various other topics was no exception. However, near the end of my conversation with the co-creator of some of comics' most popular characters, I had to ask: With Thanksgiving approaching, what was Stan Lee thankful for this year?


Lee's answer offered a much quieter, contemplative side of the man who helped bring Spider-Man, the X-Men, and so many other superheroes to life.


"Oh, golly, so many things," said Lee. "I’m thankful to still be involved in the things I really care about and still be able to be working on them. I’m thankful that the fans still seem to enjoy the things I’m doing."

"I’m thankful that my wife lets me do all these things I’m doing, and she doesn’t say, 'How come we don’t go out more?'" he laughed. "I’m a pretty luck guy, I think — and I’m pretty thankful for that."
