Stan Lee Came Up With Every Marvel Character We Love, And That's Why He Is The Real Hero Here

Stan Lee Came Up With Every Marvel Character We Love, And That's Why He Is The Real Hero Here

“Face front, true believers!”

It's finally opening week for the new Avengers movie! "Avengers: Infinity War" is expected to be one of the top movies of 2018 and that's definitely not a surprise since Marvel's "Black Panther" reached $1.3 billion for the global box office which surpassed "Titanic" as the third top-grossing film of all time.

It's being said that the new movie is on its way to box office history as well; opening weekend could make up to $200 million! But who is behind all the magic of the Marvel series? The one and only Stan Lee of course! I used to not care one single bit about these movies because I thought they weren't my thing, but after my boyfriend forced me to watch "Iron Man" and "Thor: Ragnarok," I ended up really enjoying them and now we're planning on going on opening day to see the new movie!

My boyfriend and I also have a little game we always do while watching one of the movies, and that is looking for Stan Lee's cameo in the movie. Stan Lee is a big wig with the Marvel comics. He is former editor-in-chief of the comic book series, but now he helps run the movies. And like I stated before, he gets his own cameo in almost every single one.

Why does he get his own little part in the movies? Because Stan Lee is basically the backbone of Marvel.

Every time he's featured, it's a little tribute to how much work he has done for the series and adds a laugh every time he's on screen. In my opinion, the movies simply wouldn't be the same without his cameo. It's a tradition that he's in them, his first cameo dates back to 1989 in the TV "Hulk" spin-off movies.

Stan Lee explains why he loves doing these cameo's so much, "It's fun. For about 12 seconds, I feel like I'm an actor. Every kid wants to be an actor. When I was a kid, I thought, 'Oh, it'd be great to be like Errol Flynn. I want to be an actor.' So I do my cameo. For that brief period, I'm an actor." He may be 95 years old, but that doesn't stop him from living his dream of being an actor for a brief moment.

With all that being said, if you're heading to the movie theaters anytime this weekend to check out the new "Avengers" movie like me, make sure to keep an eye out for Mr. Lee's couple of seconds of fame.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History

Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year


Gear Up

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)

If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.
