Stan Lee has always been a draw at San Diego Comic-Con, even before Hollywood came calling.
This year, Lee was busier than ever at the age of 87, promoting his new partnership with BOOM! Studios, signing autographs on the convention floor and speaking on a panel following the world premiere of the documentary, "With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story."
When Lee was told that there would be a documentary made about him, he said, "I thought they were kidding. When they finally convinced me, I thought, 'Well, it will be a little 12 minute thing.' It's incredible, they've been filming it for over two years."
Lee continues to keep busy with his company, POW! Entertainment, including a motion comic with Disney and several projects in Japan.
The panel on the upcoming trio of Marvel "Avengers" movies was extremely well-received at Comic-Con, and, as usual, Lee will be making appearances in them.
"I have a cameo in 'Thor,' and I haven't done my cameo for 'Captain America' yet," he said. "They're shooting it in England, but they said they'll probably shoot something in L.A. so that I can have a cameo."
Regarding his acting work in previous movies like "Iron Man," he joked, "I'm amazed that there wasn't some award given out."
