Kamen Rider Drive’s Ryouma Takeuchi ran into the legendary Stan Lee at the Tokyo Comic Convention.
Stan Lee, one of the men responsible for many of the Marvel Comics characters dominating the silver screen today, made a special appearance at the Tokyo Comic Convention held during the first weekend of December.
The Spider-Man co-creator attended the convention’s opening ceremony alongside cult film legend Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Pumpkinhead) and the star of Kamen Rider Drive, Ryouma Takeuchi.
Takeuchi, a comic book fan, was reportedly nervous meeting “Stan the Man.” He told him he “wants to be a Marvel Superhero,” specifically a mutant from the X-Men franchise. Lee replied, “I can see you as a mutant,” and Takeuchi responded with a gleeful, “yay!”
