This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Stan Lee page.


  • I felt someday I'd write "The Great American Novel" and I didn't want to use my real name on these silly little comics.
    • On why he began using the name "Stan Lee".
  • If a character had the same first initial in both names, I could at least remember one of the names.
  • I have no idea when the Golden Age was, but as far as I'm concerned, wherever I am is the Golden Age!

With great power comes great responsibility, Voltaire[edit]

Where is the evidence that Voltaire said this? It's all very well and good to point to a 500-page book in French, but without the actual quote it doesn't really count as evidence. It's more likely that the attribution to Voltaire is just some misinformation that some random person on the Internet made up.

Found on Yahoo! Answers, UK and Ireland: Who said "with great power comes great responsibility" first?:
Although commonly attributed to Franklin D. Roosevelt or Stan Lee via Ben "uncle of Peter" Parker, we can attribute the earliest usage of this phrase to Voltaire.
Voltaire. Jean, Adrien. Beuchot, Quentin and Miger, Pierre, Auguste. "Œuvres de Voltaire, Volume 48". Lefèvre, 1832

Which, I see, someone has added to this page since you (whoever you are) asked. I wish they'd give a page.
