We Have Achieved the Technology to Keep Stan Lee Attending Comic-Con for All Eternity

There’s a new a virtual reality app named Hindsight VR that currently allows people to “join” Stan Lee at Comic-Con, no matter where they happen to be. It’s all fine and dandy, but there’s been an even bigger breakthrough as a result: Technically, Virtual Stan can attend every single Comic-Con from now until the end of time.

The app lets people “join” Stan in a virtual living room, where they can watch the first episode of Cosmic Crusaders, his new superhero project, just as Stan bring a new superhero project that no one ever cares about to every Comic-Con.


That’s all well and good, but now that Stan Lee has excelsiored himself into virtual reality, there’s nothing stopping his digital doppleganger from showing up at every Comic-Con. People could take a seat in his virtual living room and watch TV with Stan every year. Hell, if someone wants to write a program to randomly generate superhero TV series once a year that fail to capture the public interest, we’d be all set.
