Comic Book Guy is about to reunited with a comic book legend: Stan Lee will guest-star on an upcoming episode of The Simpsons, EW has learned.
The co-creator of such Marvel superheroes as Spider-Man, The Hulk, and The X-Men will play himself in an installment airing next season — the animated comedy’s 25th — in which Homer stands to ruin a blossoming relationship between Comic Book Guy and an attractive young Japanese woman/manga fan. Lee swings by Comic Book Guy’s store and doles out some advice on comics, romance, and, yes, romance comics.
The 90-year-old Lee, of course, is not a first-time visitor to Springfield: He popped up in The Android’s Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop in a season 13 episode. “Stan was a joy to work with once again,” Simpsons exec producer Al Jean tells EW, “and we look forward to having him back on the show in another twelve years.”
