Comic Book Legend Creating Online

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, March 29, 2000

Spider-Man's co-creator is caught in the Web. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a ThirdAge.com report on computers and technology. Stan Lee is a super hero to comic book fans of all ages. Fans of the Amazing Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk and Uncanny X-Men. There have been comic books, TV shows and movies... .and now... .the Web. You can find him drawing upon his talents at StanLee.net. His online ambitions are modest... .

"Well what we're trying to do is have the biggest, most entertaining Web site in the world. And we're starting out by doing what we call webisodes of super hero stories."

The site uses animation and sound and some top notch technology, with IBM as a partner, to deliver the entertainment...

"I'm trying to do on the Internet what I did years ago at Marvel Comics. I'm trying to create characters which will have a long life, which will mean something to the fans."

Stan Lee is 77 years young and not the least bit intimidated working in this new digital world...

"It's not that difficult. My God, I mean anybody who can drive a car or operate a radio ought to be able to find his way around the Internet. All you need is a mouse and know how to click."

Again the site... s-t-a-n-l-e-e dot net. You can find us at ThirdAge.com. Bootcamp, I'm Fred Fishkin, for CBS News.
