Stan Lee wins his 10%

A judge in America has upheld Spider-Man creator Stan Lee's demand for 10% of Marvel's profits from the hugely successful Spider-Man films, reports BBC News. The two films have made more than £850m at the box office.

The BBC also has an excellent interview with Lee who reveals, among other things, that he put the hyphen into Spider-Man so that the name didn't resemble Superman too closely. It infuriates him, he says, when people leave it out. "Some day," he jokes, "I want to write a story about a villain who steals hyphens!"
