Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment sent out a press release detailing an Atlantic Monthly article that has named THE MAN as the 26th most Influential Living American. Stan i s tied with Bill Cosby and more influential than Henry Kissinger, Chuck Berry, Bill Clinton, Martha Stewart, Clint Eastwood, Tiger Woods and Hugh Hefner. We’re not sure that “Excelsior!” is really more important than “Roll over, Beethoven” but it’s all a talking point, right?
The Atlantic describes Stan Lee as the founder of Marvel Comics, and the inventor of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and numerous other superheroes.
What the article didn’t say is that his past stellar achievements may ultimately prove to be the lesser of his accomplishment. Lee, who still maintains his status as Marvel’s Chairman Emeritus, has gone on to form his own new company called POW! Entertainment (OTC:POWN.PK), where he is creating a host of contemporary material at an unprecedented rate. In fact, POW! has over 40 breakthrough “Stan Lee Presents” projects currently in various stages of development. The POW! premiere of hit reality series Who Wants to be a Superhero, along with the SCI FI Channel’s co-production of Lightspeed, have already earned Lee’s new POW! Entertainment a firm place in the households of millions of Americans. Additionally, Stan Lee’s new POW! Sprint Mobile Channel promises to further solidify Lee’s new company’s position in the worldwide entertainment marketplace. POW! Entertainment is fast becoming a major player in the entertainment industry and with its line up of new projects could very well catapult Stan Lee’s status to even greater heights.
