Quotes

Stan Lee: I don't know what the universal conception of creator is. Steve definitely felt that he was the co-creator of Spider-man. That was really, and once he said it I realized that it meant a lot to him, that was fine with me. So I said, "Fine, I'll tell everybody that you're the co-creator." But that didn't quite satisfy him. So I sent him a letter, I put it in writing, To whom it may concern: This is to state that I consider Steve Ditko to be the co-creator of Spider-man, or something like that. ...

A Great Story of A Great Man with Great Power
29 April 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Behind every great man there's a great woman.... That's my shortest summary of this documentary film. My favorite parts were the ones with Stan and his wife Joan. Their interactions were priceless!

The film sincerely showed many aspects of Stan's life, including some hardships he's gone through and also a lot about his personal life. It takes you to his study where he writes, and you even get to see his kitchen! Stan is so humble and always smiling, but he has gone through some very tough times, too. I learned a great deal of life lessons from watching this film, such as "work hard to accomplish your dream", "keep on working", "always be kind to people", "be honest", etc...

I thought it was a very well done movie!
