Are you Stan Lee’s Biggest Fan? The search is on!

Stan Lee's ComikazeStan Lee is one of those people who pretty much everyone should have heard of. I mean, even my parents know who he is, and I only just got them to sit down and watch Phase I of the MCU recently. He’s beloved, he’s cherished, and he is the coolest 90-something in the world (sorry Betty White). He’s also got a lot of fans, and I’d bet at least 1/4 of those fans think they’re his “biggest” fan.

After years of hearing it, Stan has decided it’s time to find a definitive answer to the question “Who is Stan Lee’s biggest fan” (and he’s promised he won’t just pick himself, so there’s one bullet dodged). The contest was announced on Saturday at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in Los Angeles, and is in partnership with Livejournal.

You have until December 31st, 2014 to submit a Livejournal post on why you think you’re Stan’s greatest fan. Then Stan and his team do the rest, and a winner will be announced in early 2015. That winner will get an all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles to meet Stan. All details are on Stan’s LJ here.

So do you have what it takes to become Stan Lee’s #1 fan? Good luck!
