What has happened to Stan Lee?
To make him involve himself with such shows? First Striperella and now this?

Snip..........

Stan Lee has partnered with Playboy to develop a cartoon TV series starring Hugh Hefner as the leader of an elite crime-fighting team of various Playmates of the Month, called Hef's Superbunnies, Variety reported.

1. I was gonna guess money problems.
This from the LA Times:
<snip>
The money came from brokerage accounts in the Century City office of Merrill Lynch & Co. and was to fund what became a cornerstone event during the week of the August 2000 Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles an A-list Hollywood gala honoring outgoing President Clinton that raised $1 million for First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's fledging New York Senate campaign.

Gordon was right-hand man to entrepreneur Peter Paul, who provided the money by borrowing against Merrill Lynch margin accounts secured by more than 1 million shares in Stan Lee Media Inc. Gordon was then Stan Lee Media's executive vice president in charge of operations, and Paul, officially a consultant to the company, was its co-founder.

This was New Economy money: Stan Lee Media had never turned a profit. It had value thanks to the dot-com bubble and the reputation of its namesake chairman, comic book genius Stan Lee.

2. Probably.
I think he was paid a salary and Marvel owns all of his creations.
