Hulk creator biffs Marvel for millions: Thwack! With one mighty blow the comic-book creator Stan Lee took a swipe at Marvel comics this week. Ugh! A judge in the United States awarded the 82-year-old deviser of Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk and X-Men a 10% share of the profits from films and television productions based on his characters. Kapow! Lee now stands to receive royalties of at least $10m (£5.4m).

Good for Stan Lee. Marvel comics seemed to have a more humanistic approach than the DC alternatives.

I've not seen either of the Spiderman films, but the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Marvel comics were always my favourites.
