The passing of Michael Jackson has caused many to reflect on their encounters with him. Some are downright extraordinary. As wild as this one sounds, it’s quite true. Michael and Marvel Comics founder Stan Lee almost collaborated on a buyout of the Marvel empire. During their conversations, Jackson expressed a personal interest in working on a “Spider Man” movie. In the grand tradition of Marvel Comics’ famous series, Lee’s response offered up a “What If?” tale involving Jackson and Spider-Man tailor-made for an alternate Marvel universe. Check out “Stan the Man” in an MTV interview:
