"I'm jealous of everything I'm not involved in," he said with mock indignation, "I'm jealous of 'Kick-Ass.' Where was I when I this came out?"

After the panel, SuperHeroHype caught up with Stan backstage where he elaborated on a number of topics that he touched upon at the panel.

Q: Can you talk a little about how Wizard World Anaheim is treating you so far?
Lee: Well, I wish it was in Los Angeles. I wouldn't have had to drive an hour and fifteen minutes, but other than that, it's great.

Q: Can you talk a little more on your thoughts of Disney buying Marvel?
Lee: Oh, it's gonna be so good for Disney. We're gonna put that company on the map. We really are. They made the wisest move. It wasn't easy. They had to beg us a little, but we finally agreed to team up with them. I have high hopes for Disney. I'm really going to love it.

Q: What are you looking at working on?
Lee: Everything. Movies, television, DVDs. Whatever there are. We have a number of movies in development with them now. We have something called "Time Jumper. "You may have heard of it. We're working on some television projects. We want to keep Disney busy. We don't want any idle hands on that lot.

Q: You mentioned at the panel that Marvel had "taken a bite" of out POW!. What did you mean by that?
Lee: Oh, they bought ten percent of our company.

Q: Can you talk about your "Thor" and possibly "Captain America" cameos?
Lee: I've done my Thor cameo. I haven't done the Captain America one. I don't think they've started that yet. I had lunch with a young director, [Edgar Wright]. He's real good. He's gonna do the "Ant-Man" movie. So I expect to get a cameo there, of course.

Q: How long ago did you meet with Edgar?
Lee: It must have been six months ago that we had lunch. I don't think that's already scheduled, but they had asked him to direct it and he was thrilled about it. He wanted to talk to me about it. That was the last I heard, but they can only do so many movies at a time. I imagine "Ant-Man" is on the list somewhere.

Q: He's a small guy. He's easy to fit in.
Lee: Very good. But you leave those remarks to me.

Q: Is your cameo in "Thor" as a man or as a god?
Lee: I love that question; "Stan, are you a man or are you a god." I'm a man. I was hoping that I would be Odin, but you know they're so short-sighted.

Q: Any word on a cameo in "The Avengers" yet?
Lee: No, I haven't spoken to anyone yet. They're still casting it and putting it together.

Q: What do you think of Joss Whedon coming on as director?
Lee: I think it's wonderful. The man is so talented. He's really great. He's gonna do a good job.
