Stan Lee gets all excelsior up in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2

Known for making cameos in Marvel’s films — oh, and being a comic book legend — Stan Lee will make his first appearance in a videogame starting with Activision’s Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. Lee, who is the most excited man on the planet, is pumped. 

“I am thrilled to be making my first onscreen videogame cameo in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2,” he said. “It’s such a kick to see characters that I’ve helped create come to life in the game and now I’m a part of the Marvel videogame universe!”

We’d imagine it’s probably a kick collecting the checks, too.

Lee will be lending his voice and likeness to the game, for a role that’s “pivotal” to the game’s “Civil War-inspired” storyline. What that means is unclear; we’ll have to wait until September when Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 ships for every platform imaginable.
