Marvel’s founder and notorious superhero enthusiasts Stan Lee made headlines this week after making statements about his Spiderman character and questions surrounding his likeness. Lee was quoted as saying that he thinks his web slinging superhero should stay Caucasian and heterosexual. Lee’s remarks were made plain after numerous emails between himself and Sony executives got leaked this week. Stan Lee was not bashing homosexual individuals or individuals of a different ethnicity, he just doesn’t see why anyone would want to change something that has already been established. Resident360.com spoke to folks at The Aspire New Brunswick who understand where Lee is coming from. Had Peter Parker been originally created as a Latino, Native American, or African American character Lee would not see a problem keeping them within their original ethnicity. Since creators originally made Spiderman Caucasian, Lee does not see a good enough reason to change the character’s ethnicity. Lee also agreed when it came to changing the characters sexuality. While he hopes to keep Peter Parker and Spiderman originally heterosexual, the controversy surrounding his sexuality has made Lee open to the idea of having a homosexual character in his superhero lineup. The world is a much different place decades after Lee created his original characters. Lee truly believes that gay and lesbian couples have made progress in the world and should have a superhero lineup that represents that. The creator drove home the point that no part of him is anti-anything. Even his characters that were originally other ethnicities than Caucasian should stay what they originally were. For Stan Lee, it is much easier to create new characters as opposed to changing the originality of a character to silence controversy.
