It was Father’s Day in Washington D.C. and the line of fans, some young, some old, many of them dressed as their favorite comicbook or screen heroes, stretched over more than half of the huge main exhibit hall at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

They were all waiting to spend less than a minute with their real-life idol Stan Lee and have a professional photographer snap their picture with him. Each photo would cost $120. It would cost another $120 to collect an autograph.

It was fitting that Lee was making an appearance on Father’s Day since you can rightfully claim he is responsible for creating more than 50 children of his own, some of them good, some of them very bad. In fact, even if you don’t recognize Lee’s name, you’ve probably heard of at least some of his creations.
