New World Of Heroes YouTube channel features tons of geek names and entertaining shows about sci-fi fans
If you call yourself a geek but you’re not yet subscribed to Stan Lee’s World Of Heroes channel then something’s wrong.
The new YouTube channel from Stan The Man features a range of programmes like animated superhero parody Bad Days , America Young’s Geek Therapy , Adrianne Curry’s documentary Super Fans and loads more including (big cheer) Geek DIY with our own Bonnie Burton .
The 89-year-old comics legend Lee (who has his own Stan’s Rants regular slot) spoke about the new channel to a packed audience of Comic-Con attendees on the first day: “What we are giving you is such a gift, such a wonderful thing, I don’t think we should have to pay taxes. Could you speak to somebody about that?” ( Your chums on SFX queued for 45 minutes to get into that panel, where the likes of Peter David and Jace Hall also spoke.)
Other highlights include Cocktails With Stan , a talk show which has already had Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day as guests. And coming up soon there’ll be a regular podcast with Star Wars legend Mark “Luke Skywalker” Hamill. We spoke to Mark at Comic-Con in San Diego last week and here are some clips as he talks about the anonymous beauty of Twitter, jokes about how we likes to stay at home in his basement dressed in pyjamas (“like a mental patient”), the reasons why his podcast for Stan Lee is audio only and how he thinks about fame these days now he’s dropped off the radar (“I don’t crave the limelight like I did when I was a kid”):[VAMS]
