Oh, it certainly sounded like she did know and she was trying to be kind about it. Hence J. August Richards yelling "Friend Zone!" with such glee.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

What if Stan Lee's character from The Avengers is the same guy from "T.R.A.C.K.S."? And maybe Iron Man 3?

Oh it's all the same guy. He keeps getting fired from all of his jobs.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

He doesn't need a job, he just works for fun and switches jobs whenever he gets bored ever since he won his lawsuit from the tainted drink he had (in The Incredible Hulk). Before that, he spent years as a Hugh Hefner/Larry King impersonator (as seen in Iron Man 1 & 2). He also might have been a hot dog vendor (X-Men), a security guard (Hulk) and a school librarian (Amazing Spider-Man), but those three may actually be the alternate reality version of the guy, from Earth-1610. There are also rumors that the character went into witness protection and used the identity of "Willie Lumpkin" for awhile and worked for the United States Postal service, but that has never been confirmed.

^ There was also that snafu with Kang the Conqueror, after which he spent time in 1943 as an Army General.

I'm thinking it's not the same guy.

Clone army.

Probably the Time Variance Authority.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

There's an interesting question. Should the TVA consist of all clones of MarK Gruenwald, or of Stan Lee?

Anyway, we need to consider that the guy showing up in all these movies really is Willie Lumpkin. He's posing as Stan Lee so he can infiltrate Marvel and seize ultimate power. He never was the same after The Fantastic Four Roast, you know.

She could have been basing it on the final. Who knows, we'll have to see.

If they made Stan Lee the Watcher (or at least his human disguise) that would be awesome.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

^I just finished reading Marvel 1602 and all I can picture now is the sequence where Strange can't understand Uatu's chronobabble. "Please, the terms you're using, they make no sense. They're just words.
"I promise you, I am a true believer no matter what lies James has told. And how does 'Excelsior' fit into all this?"

I'm guessing that they have not started filming the new season yet. So she doesn't know how it will play out going forward.

I really don't know though, that's just an assumption on my part.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I think Stan's proper title is The Man, so whenever somebody says something like "working for The Man" he's their boss. That's how he can be everywhere and run everything.
