To say he's still active today, both in comics and other media, is a mammoth {{understatement}}. Among his recent projects, he hosted the RealityShow ''Series/WhoWantsToBeASuperhero'' and the documentary series ''Stan Lee's Superhumans'', and has a [[CreatorCameo cameo]] in almost every Marvel movie adaptation - primarily those of the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, but also films made by others - which, coincidentally, makes him the highest-grossing actor in history; his appearance in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' implied that Lee actually plays the ''same individual'' in all his film appearances (or, at least, those in the MCU). He has also gotten into the {{anime}} and {{manga}} business, and worked on two series, ''Manga/KarakuridoujiUltimo'' with ''Manga/ShamanKing'' creator, Hiroyuki Takei, ''Anime/{{Heroman}}'' with Creator/StudioBONES and ''Anime/TheReflection'' with Creator/StudioDeen. He also worked on ''WesternAnimation/TheGovernator'' with Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger.

Stan has also said (presumably at least somewhat in jest) that he based legendary jerkass J. Jonah Jameson on himself, or at least the way he thought comics readers imagined him. Now of course, as per the Marvel Method, the visual design and look of Jameson and his role on the plot was made by Creator/SteveDitko (while Stan Lee wrote the dialogues, based on Ditko's notes and directions) and Ditko might have based Jameson on [[Literature/TheFountainhead Ellsworth Toohey]] as a strawman demagogic journalist defaming real heroes (like Spider-Man), which is not really Lee's hat at all.

** Even back in the 60s at the height of the Marvel Universe's popularity, Stan had been making fun of himself for supposedly stealing credit away from his artists.
-->'''Stan''': Looks like you've been learning how to draw with your eyes shut!

-->'''Stan''': What do you mean, corny? I copied it from one of the best classics I could find!

Stan Lee spent much of his time trying to interest Hollywood in Marvel projects and playing a role in getting the comics adapted into animated versions and movie versions which generally didn't come out until much later in TheNineties but he deserves credit for making Marvel into a Multi-Media brand. From very early on, Lee made it a point to appear in TheCameo in many cartoon adaptations, either in a small role or as narrator, which started from comics, went into cartoons, and later games and then movies. Lee's intimate and grandstanding approach built a bond between readers and the company, creating and nurturing a fan culture that made Marvel the "cool" alternative to the staid and remote DC, and played no small part in nurturing and building comics fandom.

And then there's his role as "principal Stanley" in ''ComicBook/MiniMarvels'', where once Spidey starts angsting -- justifiably -- about his status as a ButtMonkey, causes Stan to look awkward once he mentions "who decided this to happen to me?".
** Ascends in ''Series/XPlay'', where "Roger the Stan Lee Experience" recounts tales of doing Jack Kirby's wife and stealing credit for Kirby's success. Also happens in his guest spot on ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' - where it's implied that his whole career has been some sort of CIA operation.

Likewise, ComicBook/SpiderMan became the first lone teen super hero of his kind who was neither a sidekick, nor had an elderly father figure to look up to, and more or less had to navigate both his teenage and adult worlds on his own.
