Stan Lee takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (well, sort of)


Even at 91 years old, a spry Stan Lee is willing to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

During his weekend appearance at Wizard World Comic Con, the legendary creator happily agreed to the challenge from Wizard World CEO John Macaluso, and braced himself for the shock of cold water. However, Macaluso had other plans: He instead drenched a Stan Lee Funko POP! vinyl figure (which, judging from the reaction in the video below, Lee had never seen).

“I really thought you were going to do this,” Lee said. “I was scared stiff!”

It turn, Lee challenged President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. You can see other creators who have taken the Ice Bucket Challenge on Comic Book Resources.



you are my hero

Wow, that was gracious of Mr. Lee to accept the challenge, and even wiser to dump the water on the bobble head. Don’t know what ice water shock to a91year old will do. Disaster averted!!!

Stan, You are an amazing man that I personally know. Love your style and your presents. Thank You Sir.

No need to give the old guy a heart attack.

Very cool. Where can you get the Uncle Stan figurine?

The funny part is that Ivy Doomkitty challenged him about a week ago

Stan is THE MAN! Had the extreme pleasure to meet him years ago at an autograph session, and he could not possibly have been more friendly, genuine, and down to earth. Thanks for decades of joy and magic, Stan!!

Just awesome!!! Stan Lee is really a great guy at 91 to accept the challenge!!! Bravo!
