Congratulations to the winners of our Stan Lee Name Your Favorite Marvel Contest! A couple of weeks ago we asked for readers to step over to Suvudu’s Facebook page, become a fan of Suvudu, and tell us their favorite Marvel Comics character by posting on Suvudu’s wall – and what a response! Three hundred-plus entries covered everything from an overwhelmingly popular Spiderman to the less common Gambit and Doctor Strange, and we had such a great time reading the responses. The ten lucky winners will receive a Stan Lee-Signed Special Suvudu Limited Edition of Stan Lee’s How to Draw Comics. Thank you for all your enthusiasm! Now for the nitty-gritty: If your name appears below, you must contact us by e-mailing email@example.com no later than 12:00 AM December 11 to claim your prize, as per contest rules. Please put “I’m a Stan Lee winner” in your subject line. Again, congratulations from Suvudu!
Michael Cox: Ok, I know He’s a favorite of just about everyone, but I have to say Spider-Man. I have been an avid reader and collector since ‘71 and could fill a room with my collectables and comics. And I am probably one of the very few that LIKED the Ben Reily/Clone Saga. Spidey always helped me to carry on when I wanted to just give up on things. And as corny as it sounds, Uncle Ben’s advice helped me in ways that are hard to articulate. But, you don’t need “Great Power” to have “Great Responsibility”.
Jimmy Roger Todd: Storm or the Black Panther!!!
Rusty Gilligan: I’ve been working in comics since the 70s, and when I met Jack Kirby he told me that he likened himself to the Thing… since then, the Thing has been a huge favorite. I love the poker-playing Thing from the Marvel Two-in-One series… in on…e scene he was playing poker with Nick Fury and a slew of unusual Marvel characters. To me, he’s the ‘ambassador’ of the Marvel Universe… we need that continuity back.
Barry Huddleston: Doctor Strange
Jeff Gabbard: Spider-Man. Wonderful story with tons of background info. and has evolved through the years.
Griffin Steel Price: Captain America! The things he did for both comics and real-life America were irreplaceable. Think about it, he was here before most of the other modern Marvel heroes (they were named Timely Comics at the time), and led America through World War II! He was also the first notable character to lose a sidekick, Bucky. Gotta love Cap, he’s the original American hero!
Mark Szuniewicz: Gotta go with Gambit. His early story is very “Romeo and Juliet” like with his marrying Bella and the killing her brother thus being exiled from the city. Also, just the concept of his character, Gambit relays the very ideal that all of life is a gamble and it all depends on how you play your cards if you will be happy or not. He embodies the internal struggle that exists in everyone in the world today
Miles Bumgardner: Of all Mr. Lee’s creations, i like The Man Thing the most. Its a nice combination of the Frankenstein myth and the search for identity. I love everything about those comics
Zach Rubin: Spiderman, hulk, ironman, wolverine, and deadpool
Aaron Spriggs: Spider-Man / Peter Parker is my favorite Marvel Character, hands down. I was a nerdy kid, grew up to be a scientist – an Arachnologist even! Spiders are one of the most beautiful animals on the planet. I can relate to Peter/Spidey all too we…ll in life. Thanks! Your friendly neighborhood Arachnologist, Aaron
