    As an Australian I can denounce Andy as much more than a B grade radio disc jockey who together with another guy called Hamish do a lot of horsing around shit, that's about it, some of it is funny a lot of it is try hard, he's more on Howard Stern level fame than Colbert. And I've never heard of Hugh's wife either maybe before my time but I wouldn't have called her famous exactly.

    Fans love Stan Lee because they actually know very little about him and how he treated talented artists.. he takes credit for so much more than he actually created... and the real creators remained penniless, so this is why Stan Lee actually sucks.
    I've known this for years but oh well.

    Jackman's research on wolves actually wasn't completely wasted. Wolverine has spent spent some time with wolves in the comics, but yeah he should've actually looked up the character's namesake.

    Stan Lee was a legend... but there's one thing people forget about him, it's his hatred of the lima bean. Stan Lee was a large proprietor of the Anti-Lima bean agenda, and lobbied against Lima beans being added to chiptloes menu. While pinto and black beans reign supreme, you can thank Stan Lee for all the hard work he put in on the front lines of the Bean Wars of 1987.

      Yeah ,they think because he cameod in every film he created every character.
      Yeah Len died last year (as did his co creator for swamp thing Bernie Wrightson)
      He cameod in X-Men days of future past along with Chris Claremont in the Senate scene.

      It's a shame Stan Lee eclipsed all the Marvel creators.
      Millennials and Marvel "fanboys" think Stan Lee created all the Marvel characters.
      By the way I didn't know Len Wein passed away last year. :(
