Mix Up Star: STAN LEE

born December 28th 1922 - November 12th 2018

Stan Lee was an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, and producer. He rose through the ranks of a family-run business called Timely Comics which would later become Marvel Comics. He was the primary creative leader for two decades, leading its expansion from a small division of a publishing house to a multimedia corporation that dominated the comics and film industries.

In collaboration with others at Marvel—particularly co-writers/artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko—he co-created iconic characters, including superheroes Spider-Man, the X-Men, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Scarlet Witch, and Black Widow. These and other characters' introductions in the 1960s pioneered a more naturalistic approach in superhero comics, and in the 1970s Lee challenged the restrictions of the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to changes in its policies. In the 1980s he pursued the development of Marvel properties in other media, with mixed results.

Following his retirement from Marvel in the 1990s, Lee remained a public figurehead for the company, and frequently made cameo appearances in films and television shows based on Marvel characters on which he received an executive producer credit, which allowed him to become the highest-grossing person in film of all time. He continued independent creative ventures into his 90s until his death in 2018.

'Spider Man No Way Home was a great film!

The action scenes were awesome and creative.

I loved seeing all the villains from the other spider man films and seeing the other spider men.

The storyline was gripping and exciting with the perfect balance between action and character development. The ending had an awesome fight scene with everybody in it and the very end was interesting and didn't do what you expected it to do.

All and all it was a great film with great action and a great storyline.'

Jan (Age 10) - ★★★★

"It was a pretty good movie. I enjoyed it. It was a little bit dramatic though (that's probably the only reason it's four stars not five stars.)

"I watched end game it was sooo good It was like back to the future because there was a lot of time travel in it. I listen to a podcast called Brains On and it tells you about time travel and multiverse, so I recommend that as well.

Plot: after Thanos snaps his fingers and wipes out half the universe the avengers all have to work together to save all the people that have been snapped into nothing. I think it’s all about being respectful of the planet and the universe and helping people when they need it.

Characters: my favourite is Thor because he's really funny. I also really liked black panther because he is so cool.

I rate this movie 5 stars because it's funny and action packed.

Favourite quote: "And I am Iron Man""

Daniel (Age 12) - ★★★

"I thought that it was cool seeing Natalie Portman with thor armor on but apart from that it was kind of boring with some ok action scenes and a mediocre story that wasn't very exciting to watch. My favourite character was korg.

Overall it was a mediocre movie that I would maybe recommend little kids but no-one else."
