Amazing Spider-Man Wiki

Stanley Martin Lieber, known by his given name Stan Lee, (December 28, 1922 – November 12, 2018) was an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, TV producer/host, and former U.S. Army soldier, and the co-founder of Marvel Comics Inc., as well as the other comic companies such as POW! Entertainment. He was the co-creator of the fictional character Spider-Man, alongside Steve Dikto. He was also the executive producer of the film The Amazing Spider-Man. Lee played as the fictional character Stan as a librarian in the film and as a non-canon DLC character and a canon side character its video game adaption.

Lee stated he wished to have a bigger cameo in the second film than he did in the first.[1]


  • Outside of The Amazing Spider-Man film series, Lee has cameoed in nearly every Marvel live-action and animated project, starting from the 1994 cartoon Spider-Man: The Animated Series and the original 2002 Spider-Man live-action movie by Sam Raimi.
  • Lee mentioned that his cameo in the first film and video game are the best cameos he's had in Marvel media.
  • Lee appears non-canonly in the game as a playable DLC character, voiced by himself. His mission is to collect all his lost comic book pages using the web-slinging powers of Spider-Man.
    • Although Stan uses Spidey's powers, he wears regular clothes. It is implied that he hides Spider-Man's Web-Shooters under his suit's sleeves, or just doesn't have them at all.
    • While Stan swings around the city searching for his pages, he makes humorous remarks about the younger generation.
  • Lee plays a canon character also, however, in the video game. His character's name is Stan (with an unknown last name), and is an obvious reference to himself. Stan is a close friend to May Parker, Peter Parker's aunt, and asks Peter to house-sit his apartment while he is away. Soon, his apartment gets destroyed by the evil Alistair Smythe and his Spider-Slayers, but it is rebuilt after the game's events.
