    Default Stan Lee Cancels Megacon Appearance



    Stan Lee pulled out of the Amazing Arizona Comic Con over illness.

    It has just been announced that he has also pulled out of Megacon, based in Orlando Florida running from the 15th to the 17th of March.

    The Megacon Facebook account states;
    I regret to announce that Stan Lee has canceled his appearance at MegaCon 2013. We received the call late last night. He is okay, but is taking a small break from doing convention appearances.

    Sucks that he can't make it, but in the bigger picture, for some one that is in his 90's and get around at conventions hats off to him. I have been able to meet him twice at Mega Con in 2011 and 2012 and I value those moments.

    Get well soon, Stan the Man!

    Stan Lee is 90 years old. While I'm sure all this conventioneering and fan adoration has probably done wonders for his well being, there is a point where it just becomes impossible to go on. It's time to let "The Man" relax and enjoy his final years with his family. Skype it in, Stan.

    Anyone wanting to get upset with Stan over this, please raise your hand.


    ....PUT THAT HAND DOWN!!!!!
    ~Hah... HAH, I SAY!!! The only way I'll even start to believe any attempt that he makes to pay what he owes is sincere and genuine is if he pawns the damn Porsche and uses that as collateral.

    This is like me shooting a baby in the head, and trying to sound all repentative pleading my case, WHILE CHEWING ON IT'S CORPSE.~


    My opinion of Pat Lee.

    I have never been a fan of Stan Lee, but I admire his entire demeanor. It is obvious that he truly loves this industry that he worked so hard to create. But more importantly, he conveys a true sense of wonder and enjoyment for it. It's a real shame that there is so much negativity being expressed these days. More creators and fans should be like Stan Lee. His upbeat spirit is a standard to which any company should aspire.

    He's gonna to things closer to home if he does anything at all. He owes fans nothing else. He's done all he can. Fuck it, Stan. Go to Maui or something.

    Fun fact. MegaCon holds the record for the most overpriced/mediocre comic convention in the country

    I hope Stan's better in time for Fan Expo Vancouver.
    Vancouver finally has a con that isn't a complete bag of turds and his presence will help to keep that moving forward.

    At the same time, I hope he takes care of himself first.
