Stan Lee Once Again Creating New Superhero Universe

Stan Lee is at it again, creating a new comic book universe. According to an article on Newsarama, Lee has joined forces with publisher Arcana and Sean Patrick O'Reilly to bring us yet another comic book universe in partnership with POW! Entertainment. It all begins with a new comic book series and animated show called The Unknowns, which "follows two teens who are part of a touring rock band that are chasing down alien invaders; the catch is that some members of their band are also aliens, but good guys." Great news for anyone who was hoping to get some insight on what the hip young kids are doing with their rock n' roll music from a geriatric.

Stan Lee, of course, was the co-creator of most of what we know as the Marvel Universe. If course, he had a lot of help from guys like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, but to hear Lee tell it, he magnanimously allows them to have credit because he's just such a nice guy. According to the article, Lee is very excited to bring these new characters to life with Arcana, and it's an idea he's had for a long time. "I'll put my name on anything for money," said Lee.

Look for more about this to be revealed at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Con later this year. Look for the project to immediately fade into obscurity or be buried in legal strife like just about everything else Lee has done in the last three decades.
