Fantastic Four
Stan The Man is: Willie Lumpkin

What Happens? The thought of a million fanboys creaming their shorts is not a pretty one, but that�s pretty much what happened when it was announced that Lee was going to cameo as Willie Lumpkin in the first Fantastic Four movie. Lumpkin, the FF�s kindly old postman, was not only a Lee creation, but would also mark the first time that Lee would play an actual Marvel character. The scene itself is short and sweet, as Lee staggers up to Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd) and Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), blabs some guff and then off he goes, presumably to go postal on his colleagues.

Wink-Wink Rating It�s another Lee cameo that�s played relatively straight, with director Tim Story insisting on little fanfare. Whether we�ll ever see Lee as Lumpkin again is in doubt, with the Fantastic Four franchise idling in the Negative Zone. That may be a good thing: Lumpkin briefly dated Spider-Man�s Aunt May in the comics.
