Announcing the Winners of the Stan Lee Signed Movie Posters!

Hope you enjoyed our latest giveaway of two movie posters signed by comic book legend Stan Lee!

About a week ago, we asked you to tell us who your favorite character is created by Stan Lee (@TheRealStanLee). We had 467 entries with both answers we expected (Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine) and those we didn’t (Elektro, Hawkeye, and Doctor Doom).

Met member Ben Andrews even gave us this personal answer, “Growing up as a weird gay kid in small conservative town, I identified a lot with the hidden identity of Peter Parker as Spider-Man, and the ‘born-this-way’ mutants in X-Men. Stan’s characters gave me an outlet for my frustration and taught me that what makes me different also make me special not a freak. So the X-MEN would definitely be my favorite Stan Lee characters! Thanks :)”

Now, without further ado, it brings us great pleasure to announce the two winners!

Joe Looney from Saunderstown, RI and Valentino Valdez from Honolulu, HI will each be sent one of these awesome, collectible posters. Congrats, guys, and a big thanks to Stan Lee and his team for donating these two prizes!

You can keep up with Stan the man himself over on Twitter and Facebook.

When photographer Alex Galmeanu bought a rare 50-year-old camera off eBay, he never expected to find an exposed (but undeveloped) roll of film inside. “Of course I had it developed right away,” he wrote, “and, as a surprise again, I was able to recover 10 quite usable images, especially when considering their age.
