Sure, Stan the Man has been appearing in Marvel Movies (and, occasionally, comic books) for years, even making a passing appearance as a jury foreman in 1989's made-for-tv flick, The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. The successful twenty-first century cinematic universe has given Lee his best appearances, however, as a World War II General, a modern-day Smithsonian security guard, and some guy with a truck in Thor. He even shows up in space in The Guardians of the Galaxy. We know it's Stan Lee, of course, making amusing Easter Egg cameos. But, given that these movies and TV shows depict an interconnected universe, who is Stan in that reality? Is he an Elder of the Universe? A disguised Watcher? Do clones of one man exist for some sinister purpose? Come on, you obsessively-theorizing nerds!

Who is Mr. Lee?

I'm not really liking the Watcher for this, as he's a lot more passive than Mr. Lee has been in those movies.  My money's on one of two theories:

* The Beyonder, living out several lives at the same time somehow. I could see him attempting to gain experience by quietly infiltrating the population.

* The Impossible Man wearing lots of makeup. Not being terribly mischievous, but always popping up.

Since we haven't seen the MCU version of the Impossible Man, it's possible he can change his colour as well as his appearance.

I saw what you did there.

Doubtless you're green with envy.

Maybe.......Melf, the Elf with a Gun?

The grandfather of Madrox, the Multiple Man?

This is a silly question. He's the Norse god of ubiquity.

Ha! Of course he is. *Applause*
