Stan Lee has been an exceptionally popular guy since Comic-Con a few weeks ago — or so his many photo-posts would have us believe. Most recently, it seems he's been buddying up with Jim Carrey.
"Captain America: The First Avenger" is still making friends too. Paul Cornell, I think, hit the nail on the head with his assessment of how the film represented World War II in the Marvel Universe. See what he thought, what Mark Sable wondered about the film and what Pete Woods thinks might help him sell a few more comics. Brainstorming and retirement proposals await you after the jump.
