Stan the Man, Stan the Man, Does Whatever a Spider-Man Can

CBR has the first footage of Stan Lee as a playable character in the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man, and oh my god it is glorious. Watching Stan’s 90-year-old frame leap, twirl and launch through the air is sublime, and having him utter such such horribly lame things while doing so only adds to its ridiculous majesty. I don’t even care about the Spider-Man portion of the game any more. Fuck it, I just want to play this. Man, if you can’t find joy in making Stan Lee perch on the ledge of a building, then delivering a flying leg lock to a bunch of criminals, then I don’t know if you can ever truly know joy.
