As has become a tradition with movies based on characters he created, Stan Lee makes a cameo in "X-Men: The Last Stand. " But unlike with Daredevil, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four or Spider-Man, Lee may not be the man most responsible for his creations' popularity and for them eventually winding up on the silver screen. To many, that distinction goes to legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont. "He's the architect of their current mythology," said comics and TV writer Christos Gage ("Law and Order: SVU")

This is the year Wizard Philly becomes the most attractive, star-studded, event-driven comic/sci-fi convention east of Comic-Con in San Diego. "This will easily be the biggest Wizard Philly ever", says John Macaluso, CEO of Wizard World, Inc. "This is by far the most activities and most starpower we've had at any of our conventions — ever. " Indeed, in a summer where "The Avengers" has already grossed more than a billion dollars by taking a bunch of huge, individual franchises and bringing them all together, Wizard seems to have taken the same approach.

THE MOST COLOSSAL combination in comic books - and one of the biggest collaborations in pop culture, period - is occurring as you read this. Imagine George Lucas directing "Star Trek. " (Yeah, right.) Or James Bond in the hands of James Cameron. (Ditto.) Or Superman and Batman redrawn by Stan Lee, the legendary comic-book creator. (No joke.) Lee and DC Comics have teamed up for a series titled "Just Imagine Stan Lee Creating...," which gives Lee the freedom to literally re-create Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and others.

For Baxter Guilfoyle, wearing a bloodstained white shirt with a clerical collar, it was "all about the zombies. " Carrying a sign reading "Zombie Rights!", Guilfoyle, 42, of Northeast Philadelphia, easily blended in with the crowd of comic book superheroes, villains, and monsters, and thousands of their fans who filled the Convention Center on Saturday. It was Wizard World Comic Con, the traveling comics extravaganza, and it drew a steady flow of comics enthusiasts. For Todd O'Donnell of Ardmore, Saturday was a day of father-son bonding as he carried 3-year-old Griffin, who was sporting a Spider-Man costume, amid the exhibit hall crowd.

In the first chapters of Marvel Comic's 25th Anniversary edition of the Fantastic Four, Ben Grimm returns to the field where Reed Richard's doomed spaceship crash-landed on Earth after it encountered Cosmic Rays in the approach to Deep Space. The rays burned super powers into the Fantastic Four, but only Ben was left deformed and looking much like a rock. He is ashamed of his appearance, even though he understands "we've gotta use that power to help mankind, right?" Despondent, Ben has his friend Hopper Hertnecky fly him over Monster Isle in the South Pacific, where he jumps out of the plane and lands in the water.

Here are my top 11 Hulk stories ever. Authors are in parentheses. Incredibly, none of co-creator Stan Lee's tales or current writer Bruce Jones' epics make the list. 1) Incredible Hulk No. 377 (Peter David) - Bruce Banner's split personalities - the repressed scientist, the raging child and the sadistic thug - confront their inner demons and merge, creating what many believe was an "Ultimate" Hulk. 2) Future Imperfect No. 1-2 (David) - The Hulk battles an evil future version of himself for the fate of the world and his own soul.

In just three years, Joe Quesada has gone from prolific artist to one of the most powerful men in comics. When he took over the editorial duties at Marvel, the company that had dominated the comics landscape for decades was hurting badly, both creatively and financially. He immediately set out to fix broken books, make popular ones even better, make books accessible to new readers, recruit top talent and try new ideas. The results have been astonishing. For the second straight year, comic sales are up. Sales of the company's trade paperback collections are even better.

THOUGH Greg Horn has been a fixture at Wizard World Philly for years now, the one constant is that Horn remains one of the rare artists whose art on the cover alone moves comics off shelves. So much else has changed, though, in the industry and for Horn personally. "There's a lot more business to comics than I thought there was when I was a fan," he said. "You'd come in here and draw and if you drew the best, everything [was] going to go your way. "There's a lot of politics.

PERHAPS the fertile imagination of Stan Lee could conjure a villain with the power to bend time into a recurring loop. The fellow could use his Groundhog Day abilities to rob armored cars, or whatever, and while this was going on the rest of us could be forced to experience the same thing, over and over. Much as we now experience the "Spider-Man" movies, reboots of reboots of a character done to near-perfection, and very recently, by Sam Raimi. Case in point: "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," a long, low-energy movie, that begins with Spider-Man policing New York successfully, but failing in his relationship with Gwen (Emma Stone)

LOOKING TO HAVE a Marvel-ous time this weekend? Or to get "Charmed" while boldly going where no one has gone before? Good news. Wizard World Philly 2013 is here from Thursday through Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center (12th and Arch streets). The return of Marvel Comics to Philly after a multi-year absence is perhaps the biggest event at this year's show - though there are many huge headliners at this year's show (which runs an extra day). They would include legendary creator Stan Lee, co-creator of Iron Man as well as other wildly successful characters such as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk and Thor.

THERE HAVE BEEN a number of movies about the world of ballet, and all of them have made it seem like a back-stabbing sorority - "Mean Girls" in toe shoes. But none of the stories compare with what's going on at Russia's vaunted Bolshoi. Earlier this month, principal dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko was arrested over suspicion that he was involved in the acid-splashing attack on artistic director Sergei Filin . Now, according to the Huffington Post, former star dancer Anastasia Volochkova has accused the company of pimping out its female dancers.

Arguably the biggest comic event of the year continues with the recent release of " The Traveler " from BOOM! Studios - the latest collaboration between legend Stan Lee and the upstart company. As was the case with last month's "Soldier Zero," it is unclear how much input Lee had with the creation and direction of "The Traveler. " But his fingerprints are again unmistakably on the character. The Traveler is a mysterious masked hero with time-traveling abilities who stands in opposition to the Split-Second M, super-powered assassins from the future, who we soon learn have powers related to the fundamental forces of the universe.
