Así reaccionó Stan Lee a las noticias sobre Disney y Fox

Rob Liefeld, el creador de Deadpool, le dio al patriarca de Marvel la mensaje de que todos sus personajes formarán parte del mismo universo de cine.

Tal vez Rob Liefeld no sea la persona más querida por el fandom de los cómics, y tal vez su amiguete Ryan Reynolds no pudiera resistirse a darle un par de collejas en Deadpool 2. Pero al dibujante que llenó de pistolones y correajes la Marvel de los 90 podemos agradecerle dos cosas: deber creado al soldado bocazas, y habernos transmitido las impresiones de Stan Lee cuando este descubrió que la operación de Fox por parte de Disney uniría a sus creaciones en el mismo universo cinematográfico.

SUNDAY WITH STAN! Well, my Saturday, but your Sunday. Let’s get right to it, how great does @therealstanlee look in this photo?? He’s doing really, really well, his own words actually. I had the pleasure of sitting with him yesterday for an extended period and it was a delight. My visiting him was something that I was fortunate to have been extended by Stan’s family and friends a few weeks back, I told them to let me know the morning of, in case Stan was too tired or not feeling up to it. I got the call Friday and then Saturday a.m. to come on over. When I saw Stan, my heart soared, his color was great and his eyes were wider than I’d seen them in finta some time. He was vibrant and spry. I told him that everyone would be thrilled to see how good he was doing. That’s when he said “I’m doing well, tell them I’m doing well.” He said “Can you believe I’m 95 years old, Rob? I’m still here at 95, who would have thought?” I told him how traveling with him a few years back opened my eyes to the tremendous energy and stamina he possessed. I look at him as I do my mom, but 20 years older, he’s amazing. We talked of his moving to L.A. in the 70’s to set up Marvel properties in film and tv. I informed him that Disney was bringing the Fox family of Marvel characters home, that they’d be reunited and he settled back in his chair and he smiled “Thank you for telling me that.” We talked of his working with educators in the 70’s to carry comics in libraries, how my vocabulary was improved by his writing all that jargon for all the scientists he created, Tony Stark, Reed Richards and Hank Pym. Stan expressed his love of Deadpool, especially the film. He said, “I can’t believe all the X-rated stuff he gets away with.” I told him, that’s all @vancityreynolds 😂😂😂 We talked smart ass characters and how we’re all smart asses inside. I added that there is no Deadpool without Spider Man! There was much more, but the bottom line is, July 28, 2018, Stan was in great spirits and in great care. Thank you to Jon Bollerjack and the family for bringing me up. I was deeply moved and I’m so grateful to have shared time with him. #stanlee #marvel #spiderman #deadpool #robliefeld

Resulta que, este domingo, Liefeld visitó a Lee, transcribiendo luego la cita en un tardío post de Instagram. Entre las virtudes del dibujante no se encuentra la concisión, que digamos, así que lo resumiremos en lo posible. Según su crónica, Lee se encuentra en buenas condiciones pese a sus recientes reveses (personales y de sanidad), y, como sigue siendo Stan Lee, se permite alardear de ello: “¿Puedes creer que tengo 95 abriles, Rob? ¿Quién iba a proponer que seguiría aquí a los 95?”. Más delante, Liefeld pone al día a Lee acerca de los tejemanejes empresariales, a lo cual este final replica con una sonrisa y un “gracias por contarme eso”. 

Ahora perfectamente: una parte importante de la charla se la lleva Deadpool. O, mejor dicho, lo mucho que a Stan Lee le divierten sus películas. Según Liefeld: “[Lee] me dijo: ‘No puedo creerme que pueda meter esa cantidad de cosas clasificadas ‘X’ y escaparse con la suya’, a lo que yo le respondí que eso es cosa de Ryan Reynolds. ¡Y añadí que Deadpool no tiene sentido sin Spider-Man!”. Mientras nos relamemos pensando en la que le retraso a Tom Holland si él y Reynolds llegan a hallarse las caras, esperamos que a Lee le dure la sanidad lo suficiente como para regalarnos muchos cameos más.
