Stan Lee is more than, or equally, beloved than the iconic characters he created for Marvel Comics. A visionary artist, writer, myth-maker and publisher, he stands toe-to-toe as a formidable legend, and is admired by legions of geeks who love the Hulk, Spider-Man, The Avengers and The X-Men.
Now, with the reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, scheduled for relaunch on June 26, fans of the verbose New Yorker will get an incredible opportunity: a chance to play Lee as a character alongside his creations in the new Amazing Spider-Man if you pre-order it from Amazon.com, have a PS3 and an Xbox 360.
There are limited quantities of the download code so it’s best to act fast. Forget all the other platforms, too: they get zilch even though The Amazing Spider-Man is a multi-platform game.
If you abhor the idea of online only purchase and elect to pre-order off-line, you can do so through GameStop. Do that and you can only play as the villain, Rhino.
