Yes, you read that right. This week’s question centers around a popular DC character.

True or False: Stan Lee attended the premiere of the 1989 Batman film as a personal guest of Batman co-creator Bob Kane.

And the answer is…


Stan Lee and Bob Kane became good friends after Stan moved to Los Angeles circa 1980. They often dined together and playfully ribbed each other over the variable successes of their respective DC and Marvel characters. Bob, Stan and their wives shared a limo ride to the 1989 Batman premiere in Westwood, CA. It was definitely a night for Bob Kane to crow proudly about, and Stan happily indulged him. Stan always wished that Bob had lived to see the premiere of Spider-Man in 2002, so he could return the favor.
