    Default CBR's Top 100 Stan Lee Stories

    CBR asked readers for their favorite Stan Lee written stories, and used it to compile a Top 100.

    The lowest ten were submitted.

    https://www.cbr.com/stan-lee-greates...told-100-91/3/

    It includes Stan Lee's parody of Frederich Werthem from Tales of Suspense, and a back-up from ASM 600 by Marcos Martin.

    I think it's pretty cool that Lee had some material in the last decade that had enough of an impact on readers to make a "Best Of"- even an exhaustive one.
    Sincerely,

    Thanks for the link.
    Looking forward to read which were the other stories.
    I am quite impressed that such a well written story as the Tales of Suspense story was only in the lowest ten.
    And the Not Brand Echh#1 being there is great, one of the things that I like from the Marvel stories is exactly those funny takes, and that's something that was in the early Marvel stories of the modern era of Marvel that started with Fantastic Four:1.

    When suggesting someone who has passed away doesn't merit the current praise, tread carefully, and don't put words in anyone else's mouth.

    Two more entries.

    https://www.cbr.com/stan-lee-greates...er-told-90-81/
    90. "Spider-Man/Spider-Man vs. the Chameleon!" Amazing Spider-Man #1 (1962)
    87. “The Living Prison” Daredevil #35-38, Fantastic Four #73 (1968)
    85. "The Spider or the Man?" Amazing Spider-Man #100 (1971)
    81. "Lo, This Monster" Spectacular Spider-Man #1 (1968)

    https://www.cbr.com/stan-lee-greates...er-told-80-71/

    76. "The Grotesque Adventure of the Green Goblin!" Amazing Spider-Man #14 (1964)
    73. "The Horns of the Rhino" Amazing Spider-Man #41-43 (1966)
    71. "Turning Point" Amazing Spider-Man #10-12 (1963-64)

    An underrated one might be Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #1. There were some odd changes in adapting it for Amazing Spider-Man #116-118 (characters were removed/ changed, and they might have blunted a point on political corruption to appease the Comics Code of Authority.)

    Very interesting to see so many Spider-Man stories in the Top 100 Stan Lee stories already.I always thought that the first 100 stories of Spider-Man by Stan Lee were a fine exemple of a comic book having just many fine stories right from the start.Only Fantastic Four first stories comes close to such great stories as Amazing Spider-Man had right from the start imo.

    69. "The Wondrous World of Dr. Strange!" Amazing Spider-Man Annual #2 (1965)

    It also has the first story from my top ten...
    67. "If A Hostage Should Die" Tales of Suspense #77 (1966) The debut of Sharon Carter by Stan Lee and John Romita.
