This 1991 Video of Stan Lee, Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld Creating Overt-Kill Is Amazing



From Todd going on and on about what “the kids” want (while mispronouncing “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”), to Rob promising the biggest shoulderpads ever and arguing with Todd over who draws hands better, to Stan cracking extremely lame jokes, this is the single best caricature all three of them could have conceived of each other if they tried.

I must admit I never knew that Stan Lee was the impetus behind the creation of Overtkill back in the day. Todd didn’t exactly trumpet that fact once he integrated him into the Spawn universe, nor the fact that Rob Liefeld basically created the look.

Kudos to ComicsAlliance for digging this up.
