STAN LEE GETS HIS OWN STAR
"He is that American dream that we all look for," said comics creator Todd McFarlane at the event. "He comes up with the ideas that we all look for to move us forward."
Lee shouted his trademark "Excelsior!" to the cheers of fans and friends, as his star, the 2,428th along the famous sidewalk at 7072 Hollywood Boulevard, joined celebrities of the film, television and music worlds.
Lee worked as a movie-house usher and a sandwich-delivery kid before joining Timely Comics, where in 1941, as a teenager, he worked on Captain America comics.
