Superhero landing!

Greetings, heroes of Azeroth! Many MMO and other multiplayer titles mourned the much-missed and many-storied media mogul Stan Lee when he passed away in November 2018. But don’t despair, for the developers and designers dreaming of delighting players in World of Warcraft found a way to fix Stan Lee’s stupendous spot in the supreme cinematic tradition… because now Stan Lee himself is striding through Stormwind, surprising and supporting players with his smile and stalwart suitability as a surreptitious cameo!

Those of you who have enjoyed the exciting and energetic empire of movies built from Marvel Comics will no doubt express familiar emotions at the thought of Stan Lee having one last cameo, shouting his evergreen catchphrase of “Excelsior” as he explores the city walkways. While players cannot partake of wearing Stan’s particular preferred eyewear in this game, it seems like a poignant and powerful tribute to a writer of regular and rigorous imagination, who routinely relayed his reverence for the other writers and artists inspired by his own work. And you can bet that the team at Blizzard are among those Stan inspired!

‘Nuff said!

I must be missing something. Whats with all the alliteration?

I really don’t give a rip about WoW post BarF, but good on them for recognizing Stan Lee! I certainly wouldn’t classify myself as an avid comic book reader, but I’ve read my fair share of Marvel Comics. I’ve watched an even larger share of cartoons and have thoroughly enjoyed the majority of the MCU movies. Stan Lee’s creations have encompassed much of my childhood as well as my adulthood. He definitely deserves that memorial.

I’ve gotten to the point where I can pretty much clock an Eliot article without even looking at the byline just based on the title. =D

Christ on a Cracker. This great alliteration is glorious.

Too much of a “good” thing makes reading it a chore for me.

That could never have been said of Stan Lee’s tales in the 1960’s and 1970’s though ;)

Too much of a good thing was never a chore for me then .

A little alliteration lends laughter but lots a ‘literation largely leads to lunacy.
