Monkey Woman -- No More!

I'm sorry, I'm inconsolable.

The very idea that Stan Lee might be offended that one of his "superheroes" is *gasp* an actor. I mean, really. You hold an open casting call for a television series, and an actor shows up. In Los Angeles. What are the odds?

I'm also tickled that, at least once in each episode, Stan says something that proves beyond doubt that he doesn't read comics, not even characters he created.

"Heroes don't kill people."
"Disco is dead."
"Can you imagine Clark Kent or Peter Parker revealing his identity?"

It's OK, Stan. This show's target audience doesn't read them either.
