One of my favorite things about watching a movie based on a Marvel property is seeing how the director manages to fit in a Stan Lee cameo. Stan usually gets in a good one liner or reaction shot. My favorite by far was his role as Willie Lumpkin the Mail Man in the first Fantastic Four film. In a film that certainly had its share of flaws, that little moment was perfect! Hmmm, maybe it would have been fun to have Stan as one of the shadowed figures that Nick Fury was taking orders from in The Avengers.
George Perez had a short but fantastic run on Justice League of America. As much as I loved his work on New Teen Titans, it always bummed me out that he left the title and never got a chance to return. His JLA/Avengers was a nice tease of what could have been, but I would love for him to get another chance at the main title.
