Back in July, Stan Lee launched his own YouTube channel that focuses on all things related to heroes and the enthusiastic hero culture.
According toAD Age, Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel grew by 238% over last week to take the No. 20 spot on the YouTube Tracker. The 1 million views the channel garnered last week brought its grand total of views to more than 5.4 million. It now ranks No. 92 of 132 in the Originals All-Time Ranking.
The channel’s increase in ratings coincided with his 90th birthday on December 28. In order to mark Lee’s 90th birthday, there were a number of stories written about the milestone celebration, most of which mentioned the “World of Heroes” YouTube channel.
There are a number of scripted and unscripted shows on the channel. Celebrity guests and animation are also highlighted parts of the channel.
Most of the channel’s videos are parodies of superheroes and superhero themes. One popular series, for instance, is “Bad Days.” This series shows familiar superheroes like Spiderman and Superman having a rough time.
A series called “StanCo’s Real Life Toys!” shows kids receiving superhero toys with some side-effects.
Stan Lee actually stars in a number of the series that appear on the World of Heroes YouTube channel.
The channel also features a series called “Stan’s Rants,” In this series, he talks about what he thinks are some very important issues. In another series he has drinks with various guests.
“Happy Holiday’s from Stan Lee” is the most viewed video on the channel right now. The video features a cartoon version of the legendary comic-book writer singing his own version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas.”
Stan Lee started working in comics in 1939 when he was only 17 years old. He took a job at New York’s Timely Comics and went on to create some of the most popular characters such as the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and the Amazing Spider-Man.
