During the weekend, even Ars takes an occasional break from reminiscing about early computer advertising (http://arstechnica.com/business/2012/05/make-mainframes-not-war-how-mad-men-sold-computers-in-the-1960s-and-1970s/) or analyzing the [/URL]Oracle v. Google results. Weekend Ar(t)s is a chance to share what we're watching/listening to/reading or otherwise consuming this week.
[URL="http://arstechnica.com/"]Stan Lee talks with Jane Espenson. (http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2012/05/google-v-oracle-no-patent-infringement-found/) Not many octogenarians remain active enough to host a talkshow, but not many octogenarians have Stan Lee's resume.

Lee's a name that needs no identifiers. Along with Jack Kirby (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_kirby), he co-created an unreal number of iconic superheroes for Marvel Comics: X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Thor, the Hulk, superspy Nick Fury, and currently in-vogue villain Loki. (Editor's note: by no means is that list complete). Lee served as a head editor at Marvel and became the brand's primary ambassador over the years. He was one of the first individuals pushing comics to movie studios. Without Lee, it's safe to say The Avengers wouldn't be smashing box office (http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/06/showbiz/avengers-breaks-record/index.html) records. It wouldn't even exist.

His legacy is what makes this most recent project interesting‚??going on 90-years-old, Stan Lee still does regular work. His latest project,¬*****tails with Stan, is a weekly Web series in which Mr. Marvel (along with cohost Jenna Busch) interviews notable names from the world of pop culture. The series premiered two weeks ago with Jane Espenson (writer for Battlestar¬*Galactica,¬*Buffy,¬*and more) and Colin Ferguson (star of Eureka) joined Lee last week. New episodes appear each Friday.
