Stan Lee Outsources Superheroes to China

Stan Lee Outsources Superheroes to China

Stan Lee prepares to demolish China with his almighty rage!



Following a worrying trend of outsourcing of American jobs overseas, Stan Lee announced that his newest superhero creation, the Annihilator, will be a Chinese-owned franchise.  The so-called "grandfather of comics" announced that the prospect of cheap labor and a market filled with people who don't know that he hasn't written a viable creation in over thirty years was too good to pass up.

The Annihilator, whose powers probably have something to do with annihilating basic human rights, will debut in a 2014 movie with a $100 million budget (that's about 50 billion child labor hours for those keeping track!).  It's rumored that the Chinese-made movie will be cheaply produced, heavily reliant on spices, and popular with Jews on Christmas.  The studio also hopes to increase profits in conjunction with theaters, as the movie will make consumers hungry for more popcorn 30 minutes after eating some.

Asked for comment, Lee would only tell The Outhouse that "me Chinese, me play joke, me put pee pee in your coke."
